Former Palisadian Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to save the day in the reboot of the Terminator series in “Terminator: Dark Fate,” released in theaters November 1.
The red carpet premiere scheduled for Monday, October 28, at TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood was canceled due to the fires.
“In light of the ongoing, active fires being battled in the area, Paramount Pictures and Skydance have canceled tonight’s Los Angeles premiere of ‘Terminator: Dark Fate,’” said a statement provided to CNN. “We will be donating food intended for the after-party to the American Red Cross, which is serving those affected by the fires.”
Schwarzenegger had evacuated at 3:30 a.m. earlier the same morning, he shared in a tweet.
“If you are in an evacuation zone, don’t screw around. Get out,” Schwarzenegger wrote on Twitter about the Getty fire. “Right now I am grateful for the best firefighters in the world, the true action heroes who charge into the danger to protect their fellow Californians.”
Reprising her role as Sarah Connor, Linda Hamilton is back in as a lead. Hamilton has not acted with Schwarzenegger since they were together in “T2: Judgment Day” in 1991. Other key cast members include Gabriel Luna, Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes and Diego Boneta.
The movie, set in Mexico City, begins with character Dani Ramos and her brother living an ordinary life when an advanced and deadly new Terminator travels back in time to destroy her. She joins up with a helpful super soldier from the future and a “battle-hardened” Connor and while they try to survive as the new Terminator wreaks havoc, it turns out T-800 could be their only hope.
Tim Miller (“Deadpool”) directed the film. James Cameron, who directed the first two movies for the franchise that began in 1984, is a producer, along with David Ellison. As the Post goes to print, it’s trending around 70% on Rotten Tomatoes. The movie is rated-R with a run-time of 1:28 minutes.
