Terminator: Dark Fate trailer 2 has at least two terminators

Ever feel like you're stuck in a time loop? That's pretty much where I was at watching this new trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate. It's certainly better than that first trailer with the gosh darn Bjork cover, but I can't shake the feeling ...
