The trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate dropped last week but what was the song it used? And is there a hidden meaning behind it?
Last week, the first trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate dropped and fans of the franchise went wild at the prospect of Linda Hamilton’s return as Sarah Connor and not to mention another run-out for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator.
But one thing many have picked up on is the new trailer’s music, what’s the song? And does it have any hidden meaning?
What’s the song in the trailer?
The song used in the Terminator: Dark Fate trailer is a cover of ‘Hunter’ originally by Icelandic musician Björk.
The cover version is by Riaya and features John Mark McMillan.
Obviously, this new version is slightly different as it’s performed in a more militaristic style, with plenty of drum beats to grab your attention but the general slow-pace and monotonic singing are all retained from the song’s previous version.
The new version in the trailer sounds relentless, just like a Terminator in pursuit of its target.
Is there any meaning behind the song?
As the song is titled ‘Hunter’, you might say that it perfectly epitomises the whole series as each film in the Terminator franchise has involved a hunt of some sort.
From the very first film, Terminators have been sent to hunt down the film’s main protagonists, whether that be Sarah Connor or her son John.
Therefore it’s only fitting that the song used for the film’s trailer brings in that element of the movie franchise.
The trailer itself looks like Terminator: Dark Fate could be an impressive return to form for the series after the rather lacklustre Terminator: Genisys. Hopefully, Sarah Connor’s return can spell a change in fortunes for the 35-year-old series.
