They also reveal how the crew reacted when they worked on set together for the first time since 1991's Terminator 2.

On the day that Terminator: Dark Fate arrives in cinemas, Arnold Schwarzenegger will be 72 years old. That might seem, for lack of a better word, old for an action star to still be saving the world. Or even be saving a single person.

But Arnie is far from the first older guy to still be surrounded by gun fights and explosions on the big screen. Liam Neeson is 67. Sylvester Stallone is 73. Robert Redford is 83. Clint Eastwood is 89. And they've all had late-in-life action resurgences.

However, female action stars? Not so much. Sure, Sigourney Weaver was in Avatar, but she wasn't really getting into the thick of the action. Helen Mirren has been in a few Fast and Furious movies now, but again, she isn't exactly Tokyo Drift-ing with the rest of them.

But then last year we had Jamie Lee Curtis return to her iconic role in Halloween, a full 40 years after the original, and now we've got 63-year-old Linda Hamilton reprising her role as Sarah Connor, the ultimate Female Action Star.

JOE was lucky enough to sit down with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton (and their co-stars Mackenzie Davis and Gabriel Luna) to chat about the new blockbuster and how everyone reacted to seeing them on set together for the first time since 1991.

We also chatted about how James Cameron (director of the first two Terminator movies and returning to the franchise as a story writer) injected some topical angles into the action and how Cameron (who also pumped Ripley up to an action star in Aliens and gave us Neytiri in Avatar) changed the game with female action stars.

And now Hamilton is at the forefront of changing the game again, at the forefront of an older generation of female action stars saving the world, Arnie has nothing but heaps of praise for his Dark Fate co-star.
