This weekend sees the release of Terminator: Dark Fate, the newest movie in a franchise which has had so many do-overs that they should do a promotional tie-in with Wite-Out. It seems as though we learn some new information about the titular killing machines in Dark Fate. Not only can they age, as we saw in Terminator: Genisys, but apparently they can also grow dad beards now?
But here's something even more significant we now know about Terminators: They can totally get it on.
On Tuesday, the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto held a special advance screening of Dark Fate, in which director Tim Miller made an appearance. According to a post on Reddit (and confirmed to Cracked by a TIFF employee), Miller mentioned that original Terminator director James Cameron keeps a notebook filled with intricate details about Terminators. And one of those details is that Terminators can have sex. With humans. And somehow this hasn't happened yet in the roughly 5,000 hours of Terminator movies and TV shows.
While Miller wasn't interested in incorporating that aspect of the Terminator mythos into his movie, he did add that it kind of makes sense. After all, Terminators are anatomically correct, as evidenced by the fact that you can totally see the T-800's robo-dong in the first movie. Warning: That link is not safe for work.
In all likelihood, we'll probably never get see a Terminator sex scene outside the pages of James Cameron's pervy journals. But come on, Hollywood, that's leaving a perfectly good "Come with me, if you want to live" joke on the table.
