The thing that won't die, in the nightmare that won't end.
James Cameron’s classic ‘80s sci-fi flick starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as a cyborg sent from the future to kill an unsuspecting woman, Sarah Connor.
A war between man and machine commences in the near future. In a desperate last act, Skynet, the oppressive computer system that’s fighting a losing war, sends a Terminator (Schwarzenegger) back in time to prevent the leader of the human resistance, John Connor, from being born. The ruthless robot has only one objective: kill the mother, Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton).
In a unique moment of irony, they had once considered O.J. Simpson to play the Terminator, but feared he was “too nice” for the role of a cold-blooded killer.
