Organized by American media company Skydance Media and Paramount Pictures, the international contest was held to celebrate the film launch and saw hundreds of entries from all over the world.

The contest required participants to take inspiration from the film trailer as well as to mark the return of the Terminator’s iconic characters, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton.

“In the poster, I drew the main characters and took small details from the trailer, including a burning plane and the Terminator that rises from the sea,” said Yowdi in a statement. “I also added a fire effect to match the film’s ambience.”

The poster shows the movie’s characters in a symmetric format, with the terrifying Terminator as the eye-catching feature.

Terminator: Dark Fate returns 28 years after iconic characters Sarah Connor and Terminator T-800 appeared in 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Directed by Tim Miller, the new sequel tells the story of new character Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes) who is pursued by Rev-9 (Gabriel Luna), a Terminator from the future. (wng)
