The latest installment of the franchise is all about how women will save the world. 

The latest installment in the Terminator franchise is all about the women! In Terminator: Dark Fate, in theaters Friday, Mackenzie Davis (Black Mirror: San Junipero, Halt and Catch Fire) as Grace and Natalia Reyes as Dani, join Linda Hamilton's iconic Sarah Connor in saving humanity from the machines and itself.

Grace, an enhanced human, arrives from the future to save Dani, whose mission in the future eventually reveals itself. Faced with a virtually unstoppable terminator Rev 9 (Gabriel Luna), Sarah Connor appears on the scene in the knick of time. Of course, Arnold Schwarzenegger reprises his role as the T-800, but the movie is ultimately a feminist treatise on women running the world. It also manages to take some shots at Donald Trump's America with a portion of the action revolving around immigrants in an ICE detention center on the U.S./Mexico border.

"Sarah Connor is important to the history of cinema and action, and not just because she's a woman," Davis says in the production notes for the film. "She's also a cool evolution of a human being. I was really excited to be a part of that lineage and team up with the original Sarah Connor, seeing her age into her 60s and learning who this woman is now. It's unusual to see a woman have the arc of her life portrayed on screen and I just was excited to be a part of it."
