First Images from TERMINATOR 3!!! Plus a Set Report!!!

Hey folks, Harry here... Looks like Stoney is our man on set for TERMINATOR 3 these past couple of days. Here's his report, wish I had pictures of the Terminatrix!

Dear Harry,

The past couple of evenings, I've been watching the filming of "T-3" aka "York Square" as the crew and security would have you believe.

They have commandeered several blocks in Tujunga, CA (just south of La Canada off the 210 freeway) including the local K-Mart, which has been set up as base camp.

The shooting has mostly been outside what seems to be an animal hospital and an auto parts/garage. No sign of Arnold yet but I have seen the female terminator. She's very tall and lean with slick blonde hair pulled back into a bun and wearing a sort of brick red leather outfit.

The sequences I have seen included one where someone tries to approach her and she basically shoves them 50 feet into a wall. They also did a lot of close-ups of another girl driving a vet hospital truck being attacked in the front seat.

Last night was most eventful though. It took over an hour and a half to rig a big effects scene but the payoff was worth it. A dummy of the female terminator was strapped to the front of an off roading truck. There was a Lexus parked sideways against the vet hospital wall. When cameras rolled, the truck & terminator plowed into the Lexus which rammed into some propane tank causing a huge explosion. The sound and heat wave was intense but the crowd which had been watching across the street went nuts.

I was standing next to a guy who was monitoring what was happening over the walkies. He said he heard them planning earlier in the day for a chase sequence which is to take place tonight. If it's anything of interest, I'll let you know.



Hey folks, Harry here with the first official image from TERMINATOR 3.... oh and a spy pic from LatinoReview.Com which also has an early set report too. Can't wait to hear from you AICNers that attended the shoot. Sounds tres cool! Arnie looks as bad ass as ever. I'm dying to see the Terminatrix in full outfit in this thing. Hoping she's as deadly cool as Arnie or Robert Patrick have been. Here ya go....

    terminator 3

    by elheatho

    don't post there due to spamming problems, but you are right about being skeptical about T3. Here's my take: It will be nothing more than a remake of T2. Seriously; I can buy the Terminator being a "badass" and wearing the shades in T2, but give me a break...Yes, it looks cool, but Arnie, in motorcycle clothes, shades AND a fucking shotgun?! And X-Men 2 has almost all the same villains returning again...BIG mistake, if you ask me. Put Magneto in the background, maybe, and bring on someone else. X2 (squared) looks like it may be a remake of part one, but with more money and better stunts/action/effects. mpstrex

  • April 24, 2002, 10:44 p.m. CST

    I like the last picture especially!

    Again with the sunglasses

    by Osmosis Jones

    At least in the first movie, the sunglasses were neccesary (to hide the T-800's damaged eyesocket), but why did Arnie grab the bartender's specs in T2? Just because he thought they looked cool?

  • April 24, 2002, 10:57 p.m. CST

    I doubt it...

    by LorDagoth

    Ahnald Is The Man

    by Mudas

    I'm gonna go see this movie just to see if he utters "Git it out of my no-se!" My prediction: Ahnald falls in love with the Terminatrix, they go riding off in his honey moon raised truck, but then they both die when they are on the road and Ahnald screams his last words of "Da bridge is o-ut!"

  • April 24, 2002, 11:07 p.m. CST

    ABking here with my T3 rants...

    by ABking

    Arnold looks old??? Are you a crack head!!! Arnold looks like the bad ass killing machine from T2 but with a new jacket and shades. Arnie will again go on talk shows and utter "THIS WILL BE DA BIGGEST MOVIE OF DA SUMMER". I can say T3 will live up to the quality of JIM CAMERON and the first two films with utter confidence! To the person who wants to know what ABking looks like... only Harry Knowles and the AICN staff knows that one! Oh, did I already tell you guys that "T3 IS GONNA FUCKING ROCK THIS WORLD".

  • April 24, 2002, 11:10 p.m. CST

    The Sunglasses issue

    by nightwing415

    He probably took them in T-2 becuase he was wearing all black and leather and he was going to steal the bike. So he probably took them to look more like a biker. or john conner of the future programmed some fashion things into him and he thought they looked good. T-3 is gonna rock major ass!! Arnolds comeback is this one. Even collateral damage was totally overlooked.

    Old legs?

    by ABking

    Are you doing some heavy weed tonight why you said what you said? When Arnie arrives naked in the beginning of T3 like in both T films and shows the movie going audience what a real macho muscle man looks like...abs and all, then you will truely have shut the fuck up! Vin who? The Rock what? Who is The Rock again? That will be the new talk! I just pray that T3 gets the heavy R rating T1 and T2 got. If the WB gives THE MATRIX RELOADED an R rating, T3 should and BETTER get the HEAVY R rating it deserves!!!

    The Matrix Reloaded is going to douche Terminator 3!

    by Tarl_Cabot

    There will be no comparison.I wouldn't be too optimistic about T3. T2 was lame anyway with that liquid terminator bullshit and Robert Patrick just didn't cut it. If James cameron didn't see any juice left in this franchise than I'd be surprised if this new, unremarkable director (U-571?)delivers anything substantial. Whatever they come up with The Matrix 2 is going to kick Arnie's ass to Conan 3 and then hopefully, retirement.I'll watch T3(matinee)because I loved the first one but I'm not drooling over it without James Cameron at the helm and Edward Furlong would have been interesting to see as an adult now but his absence ruins continuity(so what if he has a drug problem-who doesn't have issues in Hollywood?).The T-1000 just didn't work for me but I thought the last one had some good moments and it had closure. Anyway, This one seems to be more like a business venture designed to revive Arnie's earning potential than a finale to a trilogy.Fuck Terminator,We need Conan 3! The Matrix Reloaded trailor is going to premiere in front of Star Wars-another reason to go!

  • April 25, 2002, 12:14 a.m. CST

    ABKing, Arnold's your boy...


    ...but Jim's mine. I'll allow that your pride in Arnold making T3 has gotten you excited, but I can't imagine that you'll find your "the movie doesn't need Cameron" suggestion justified when the flick comes out. Hopefully, you're right and I'm wrong. But I can't be anything more than skeptical about this one until I finally see it.

  • April 25, 2002, 12:17 a.m. CST


    by Dirty_Bird

    Matrix 2 won;t kick T3's ass...they are not even being released close to each other. I would imagine the WB will try to space apart he releases to earn maximum cash. T3 will be better than any dumb Keanu Reeves movie! You will see!

    Cameron is a hack!

    by juwamba

    Screw Schwartzenegger, the Terminator should be played by a familiar pop superstar: Usher Raymond. Usher's miraculous performance in THE FACULTY proves that he has the acting pedigree necessary to play such a complex character. Cameron shouldn't be let anywhere near the Terminator franchise; this franchise should be further overseen by Speilberg and Lucas. Jason Statham should play John Connor, while MGM/Flower Films distributes.

  • April 25, 2002, 12:28 a.m. CST

    Then again Arnold does look good here ...

    by Tarl_Cabot

    I gotta give him credit-He looks great for 56-I hope they establish that Arnold's Terminator in this installment is the same proto-type as the one sent to 1984 and it's just 20+ years old and therefore his human tissue outer self ages naturally while his machine incarnation is still strong as ever-I think that's a great way to explain the age disparity between the other Terminators;otherwise it's just not believable that Skynet would build the same model that looks 56. This could be ok but I'd prefer if James Cameron involved.I wish Arnold well but I do think Matrix 2 is going to blow everything away next summer.

    Regardless of the lack of Cameron, or Linda Hamilton's involvement with this....Arnie NEEDS this to be a hit...and I think it will. It is the defining role of his career, and I think it will turn out alright.

    by Tarl_Cabot

    It was everything that Star Wars Episode 1 should have been: a fun, smart movie with a great story,action,special effects, interesting characters,and some great villians.And it established a foundation for a trilogy without being tedious and boring. It think it would have made a lot more money if Keanu was not in it-he's a liability (as a draw)and he's not very good at Kung Fu but I thought he was perfect in this film.He is Neo; he was supposed to be a reluctant hero and not a super bad ass and so I thought he worked out fine.The movie is a classic and I can't for the sequels.I missed everything Keanu has done post Matrix and will continue to do so...I hear he's doing a Billy Jack remake!

    by Tarl_Cabot

    If they had the means to create artificial solders like the T-1000 than they didn't need to travel back in time to wipe out John Conner; he would have been an after thought. They could easily defeat the humans with an army of those super Terminators so it didn't work for me because it seemed illogical that they would even be threatend by JC. The first Terminator was plausible.The T-1000 with that shape shifting and chameleon shit was just too much. I think Arnold playing both good and bad Terminators would have been cool.

  • April 25, 2002, 1:10 a.m. CST


    by Dirty_Bird

    The machines did not HAVE an army of them, the T-1000 was a PROTOTYPE. Probly to test out to see how well it would work before building a bunch of them.

    Could that be Arnold's Stunt Double?

    by MST3KPIMP

    That pic looks a little off for some reason. I remember how in T2 you would see shots like on the motorcycle/truck chase of Arnies stunt double and he had makeup on to look like him. I wonder if this could be a similar situation.

    Prototype? Ok but it still was such an enormous advance in techn

    by Tarl_Cabot

    I realize it's just a movie but my ability to suspend disbelief has it's limits. The technology to create that T-1000 is beyond even the Star Trek universe. Prototypes can be mass produced eventually so my point remains. That's my only complaint I have with T2-otherwise it's a solid sequel. But I think it would have been better with 2 Arnold Terminators going at it-Arnold was an amazing villian in T1. I wanted to see more of the bad Arnie!

    The T-1000 could not have been mass produced...

    by Psyclops

    The human resistance was at the brink of revolution, moments away from raiding Skynet's lair when the T-1000 was sent (read novelization, original screenplay). It was a last minute effort on Skynet's part to insure victory because the humans had practically won, there was only one T-1000 produced by the time the humans had overthrown the machines... Skynet didn't know they would do it so soon and sent his only prototype. I'm sure if Sky had the time he would have mass produced thousands of TK's to kill of those pesky humans.

  • April 25, 2002, 2 a.m. CST

    I was there!

    by LucifeRice

    I followed the original poster's directions, which were good except he DIDN'T mention that Foothill was blocked off so you have to take a side street and go around. We got up there around 10pm Tuesday night, just in time to see them set up a cool scene. A bust of what I assume to be the Terminatrix was put on the hood/windshield of the truck, the whole set was doused with some slow-burning liquid, and Arnie's stunt double rammed the truck into the wall, which triggered a huge explosion from the side of the building (which looked like some kind of propane/kerosene storage building). Most of the spectators left after this, and the locals were running out of their houses to see what the fuck was happening. We stuck around to see them light a convertible Lexus on fire for a couple of takes of Arnie himself walking towards the camera, pausing for a moment, then lunging downward. Oh yeah, the stunt double did a couple of takes of walking out the truck, towards the camera, with the fire burning all around him. One of the benefits of living in SoCal...

    More photoshop b.s.

    by Oompacabra

    While I don't belive this IS a photoshop, I do think it looks a loy like one. Says a lot about the quality of film we're dealing with. As for Arnold, I think he looks more like the fake rubber arnold that took all the bullets in the hallway at Cyberdyne in T2, and less like the real Arnold.

  • April 25, 2002, 2:26 a.m. CST

    Tarl Cabot...

    by MCVamp

    Well, first of all, this isn't Star Trek, so different universe rules would apply. Secondly, it wasn't human or alien advancement, it was a machine which grew smarter and smarter at a logarithmic rate. So maybe Skynet was able to come up with sentient liquid metal 1,000 years or so before an organic race would be able to. Thirdly, IT'S A MOVIE! Suspend disbelief! I assume you didn't like Star Wars because you couldn't deal with a beam of light that only extended by a meter or a "mystic force" that allowed a green muppet to move a star fighter? I'm all for accuracy in the depiction of science, but when it's called science FICTION, weeping Jesus on the cross man, you just have to take some things with a grain of slt or you will slowly become incapable of enjoying anything! You've already admitted that possibly the best action movie of the 90's (and one of the best ever) didn't work for you. If you didn't like it based on taste, fine. Don't attack its quality though. The CGI still holds up, because even though it was Flinstone-like compared to today, it was still used to much better effect than 95% of CGI even now. And T3 is a must-see. at least once. I mean, we have to know. We HAVE to. Can Arnold suck it up for ONE more good one? And Tarl, if I got you confused with another post, I apologize in advance.

    A look other than leather?

    by Dlhstar

    Imagine how cool that would be. A gang of hippie-wannabe college environmentalist do-gooders in their little Beetle (shmokin' the weed, debating if Bob Marley or Steve Jobs should be on the new e-dollar bill) on their way to a Phish concert suddenly spot a homeless, naked Arnold and pull over, deciding to share their clothes with him and give him a tofu sammich. Being totally devoid of leather (since fur is murder), Arnie is tempted to take the time to skin them all, tan their hides, and fashion their flesh into a suitable leather outfit. But since time is of the essence, he simply kills them all (an allegory to machinery and industry being able to crush and control the environment) and robs them of their clothes. For the rest of the movie, Arnold goes around in hemp jeans, a faded Strawberry Nesquick shirt from the seventies, a GAP backpack with a daisy patch on it, a pair of wooden sandles, a rastafarian hat, and a driving the Beetle with a "Limp Bizkit" sticker in the window. Um... No, Arnie'd better just wait on the side of the road until a Harley Night Train comes ridin' on by.

    It'really funny to hear a bunch of amateurs scream photoshop, and to assume faked photos at the drop of a hat. I have photoshop, and although it can produce fakes, unless you have somebody who is seriously good at it, your eye will be able to tell the difference. So all of y'all creeps who want to denounce every photo as a fake, please go out and buy an 600 dollar copy of this professional grade software or settle for the 50-100 limited version, and actually try to convincingly fake a shot.

    How about a little bit of Arnold?

    by Conan_the_Humble

    I hope T3 has a Guns'N'Roses soundtrack to go with it to get the full reminiscence of the early Nineties... PS, Conan the Barbarian SE DVD finally comes out in Australia on the 15th of March 2002. About damn time the 2nd greatest fantasy movie of all time and Arnie's greatest movie was released on DVD in Australia. Now if only Arnie could get around to Conan 3, I'd be one happy chappy. T3 looks okay so far. Cheers.

    I didn't say it was Trek;I said the tech for the T-1000 surpasses the highly advanced ficticious universe of Trek and therefore level of tech for T-1000 was incongruant for this movie's universe as the era in which it takes place is not so ridiculously advanced. If you remember the first generation Terminators had rubber skin and that was just a few years removed from T2.The T-1000 was just too much of a reach. I thought it was really more about James Cameron showing off special effects goodies. The movie was entertaining but I can't put it in the class of the original. I can enjoy sci-fi without being hypercritical if it as long as it follows some minor attention to logic. Anyway,I liked Arnold as the villian and seeing Robert Patrick take his gig in 2 just didn't do it for me.To each his own I guess.

    re: NoCureForFools

    by pedant

    It's not worth it... The Terminator universe's time-travel storyline is already so fucked-up and self-defeating that there's no point in hoping for any consistency. They should have known immediately at the end of T2 that it didn't work, because John Connor didn't cease to exist. Chew on that one.

    why there has to be a T3

    by woundwart

    I am very happy to hear that there is going to be a third Terminator becuase of the end of the second film. I don't like T2 becuase of the ending becuase it doesn't make sense to me. Follow the logic. Skynet sends the first terminator back to kill Sara Conner becuase that will change the future. This establishes the concept change the past you change the future which is one of the three theories of time travel and that is fine so long as you always opperate under that precept. Now consider the end of T2 the destroy skynet before it is created skynet is never born. Now that changes the future no skynet. Well if there is now skynet then there is no Terminator send to the past. So John Cater's Father is never sent to the past so Sara never has JOnh Carter. IF Skynet is never created then the first movie could not happen. With no explinaiton the leave us with this question. That is why I hated T2 and until the end I loved T2. Now if the director is smart and addresses this issue then it can save the whole franchise for me. Of course this is just my personal issues and porbably has never bothered any one else but I am at least hopeful that I can once again love the Terminator movies.

    T3 without Jim? This movie will be

    by Manaqua

    Gimme a fuggin break! Thats like a Star Wars movie without Georgey. And whoever said T2 wasn't a classic? Please. T2 is a milestone in CGI. Definitely classic. This movie is redundant. If it doesn't take place in the future with full on battles of man vs. machine, then this movie has no relevance. That is the only story left worth telling in the franchise. It had a beginning, a middle, but no end. Why James didn't complete the arc and make a T3 in the future to show man's victory over machines will be a question for the ages. And what a goldmine no? What a chance to make something new and advance the story. But alas, I fear it is not to be. This T3 will be a cliche rehash of T1/T2. Believe it. Everybody already senses this. Another weak hollywood offering by a hack and a hasbeen. After Arnold makes a sequel to Conan (destroyer never happened) he needs to hang up his bag and run for mayor. Sorry A.B. He just aint gettin it done..............

Why would they make a T3 if it couldn't live up to T2? Answer: they wouldn't. T3 will surpass T2. Guaranteed.

    Linda Hamilton IS in T3...ABking here again!!!

    by ABking

    For all the people on this talkback screaming that Linda Hamilton left the Terminator universe (Cameron did and I will always hate that because I am one of his BIGGEST hard core fans)...and Edward Furlong ain't no big loss because he was not in part one and Connor in T3 is older...Arnold already stated that Linda WILL BE starring in T3 through flash backs. So, she IS IN T3 and I think doing her in flash backs is for the best. If she was actually in the movie along side Arnie and her son, T3 would only be rehashing T2. It will add more drama to the story seeing Nick Stahl remembering his tough-as-nails mom while Schwarzenegger is kicking some ass. Also, if Mostow and the writers came up with a deadlier Terminator than the T-1000 with the T-X, then there would have to be a logical reason for sending Arnold back as the old T-800 model. We all know Arnie's T-800 model could NOT take down the T-1000 in a fight so there has to be more to T3 than Arnie still playing the same old model. The producers didn't have every studio in town flying all over the place to a secret location to read the secretive script for nothing you know!!! If you think a little, maybe you'll realize that Arnie could be more than he is in T3! Having Arnie get his ass kicked by a deadlier robot than the T-1000 would be imbarrasing to one of the toughest action hero's to ever hit the silver screens. With all that said, TERMINATOR 3 IS GOING TO KICK MAJOR ASS "JIM CAMERON STYLE". Cameron himself was going to make a T3 before Mario Kassar and Andy Vajna fucked him over so for the fools that think Arnie got T3 off the ground for the money, get over it. The Terminator universe was NOT finished with T2! Some might even argue the Terminator universe was finished with T1! Again, when the first teaser hits the screens, watch the naysayers shut the fuck up once and for all! Opps, I mean the second trailer because the first one might just be the "I'LL BE BACK" voice!

    Old Arnie is the Writer's Problem.

    by zinc_chameleon

    I agree with the idea that the T-1000 series has a glitch where the biologicals wear out faster than the mechanicals. Also, it would add a nice touch to the time travel thingey if time travel really messes up free radicals in your body. Would make all of us a leetle bit more careful about jumping in the ol' time hopper. I wonder, can Arnie do what Sean did in the Rock? The Rock was the best James Bond movie ever; here was a Bond who'd screwed up and had to the pay the price for espionage, and now was trying to do something with what was left of his life. If the T-1000 can learn to be self-aware about mortality, that would be a neat twist.

    about the whole "John should disappear at the end of T2" paradox

    by Tall_Boy

    I always found the explanation in John's message to Sarah "The future's not set, there's no fate than what me make for ourselves". So, the future is fulid (as Resse said in T1: "He's from one *possiblie* future, I don't know the tech suff") but the past is set in stone. What already happened cannot be undone. Just filling in a little logical loophole here. (oh, and I *really* hope that T3 is not just a good Terminator vs. Bad Terminator rehash of T2. Personally, I still think an epic future-war movie with armies of Arnolds mowing down the resitance and having the flick end where T1 and T2 begin would be the best way to go)

    Deac Speaks.... Arnold is in the EXACT same outfit from T2

    by Deacon

    i love arnold schwarzenneger ABking, i loved the 6th day, would never admit to hating End of days, and collateral damage was a good movie... but this? ok.. i Love arnold, but dammit T2 is my favorite film ever, and they're bastardizing it! so skynet was on the brink of destruction and they sent the advanced prototype T-1000 to the past to ensure victory being they lost and had only enough time to send t-1000 back.... cool... so where does this terminatrix come from? "oh yeah, they also had another even MORE advanced prototype!" bullshit, and i don't care what you say T1 and T2 arnold looked the same, but 11 years changes a man, Arnold looks noticably different! and being he's a machine it cannot be explained, and they are so clearly just remaking T2 with some changes..... why not make the film EXACTLY when Skynet gets built, one T-800 comes back to warn john that the blowing up of dyson and that building did nothing, the6y had OTHER FACILITIES THAT HAD THE SAME DATA! and Skynet continued in the hands of another (like dyson never emailed his work to some other guy) and john and the t-800 have to stop skynet itself when it first goes active! and Arnold could have 3 roles, the good t800 sent back to warnjohn and help him, and the GUY who INVENTED the terminators t800 models (which explains why they all look alike!) and Arnold will last but not least, play the role of the prototype terminator t800 model first created by the arnie scientist role, bad of course... and we can get a scifi extravaganza with Arnold VS Arnold (what the 6th day should have, but didn't deliver, an awsome Arnold VS Arnold fight scene) it would kick ass! we could see skynet begin to decimate entire cities, and shit like that! but instead we get a repeat of T2....two machines sent back , one to protect one to kill john conner, and it's a fight to the death, except this time no ed furlong(he rules, drugs or not, American History X proves this)no sarah conner, and yet ANOTHEr even MORE advanced prototype.... and whats the big thing that changes this from T2? well he's GLITCHED and may go bad at ANY MOMENT! gimme a break, this movieas another talkbacker said, is just foreplay for Conan 3... which is the cumshot of arnolds comeback

    If "the past is set in stone," then the whole exercise of sending a Terminator back into the past to assassinate a future leader and his mother would be futile.

    by Nurhachi

    Why oh why? This film will suck. S U C K ! Yes it will, and not just because Cameron isn't behind it, but moreso because Cameron isn't behind it to MAKE it ALL HAPPEN and be reflective. Ah-nuld's third-time out SOMEHOW stumbling over a leather jacket and black shades? In the first one it was obvious (punk jacket and shades for the damaged eye). In the second one, Cameron - both at the same time - made it believable (biker bar) and also had a little 'fun' with this "machine" dressed as he was, but still programmed in human behaviour (thus he takes the glasses from the bartenders pocket), and subtlely toying with the Terminator audience/fans (ba-ba-ba-bad to da bone!). My point? Well - JUST wait and WATCH as the this NEW MOVIE WON'T EVEN BOTHER to explain why he's dressed like this. Again! He just is, mkay? That's how a Terminator should look, mkay? That's what the fans want! And who cares anyway? Blow something up! They will never learn. Look at Rollerball. N

    by Tall_Boy

    ya, if the past was set, then the whole Terminator plotline would be redundant. You did mention paraell universes, and while it may kill the drama a bit, Resse did mention that the Terminator could be from a "possible future". So lets say this: 1980 -Resse and the original T-800 come from one timeline, Sarah lives, timeline splits again (with Resse as father of John), 1992 - T-800 and T-1000 come from another timeline (which is why Resse said "it's only him and me" cuz the future changed) and so on and so on. Kinda a way to wuss out, but it fits with the whole "there's no fate then what we make for ourselves" theme of the films. I always find it fun to explain loopholes that would fit into the story continunity wise (from watching so much revisionist history on Star Trek, you get used to it)

    sunglasses, teasers n' stuff

    by CanadianMafia

    If you read the novelizations of the first two terminator movies, it was stated that red light from the t-800s' infrared eyes was slightly visible even when they were covered in living tissue. There was a slight red glow coming from behind the living eyeballs. The terminators used sunglasses to help hide this. However, this particular reasoning for the sunglasses was never worked into either movie. Also, there were T-800s who did not look like Arnold. In Reeses' nightmare sequence (the scene where the photo of Sarah Connor catches fire), several terminators infiltrate the human hideout, and none of them look like Arnold. Not all 800 series look like Arnold, just the model 101's... hence Arnold is not a prototype in the first movie either. ...and as far as the photo of Arnold looking like a rehashed version of his character in T2... well, let's just hope that it's only a teaser meant to catch people's attention with an unmistakable image of Arnold in the guise of his most famous character... and not an actual image from the movie. There's a million possible creative scenarios that could be excuses for having Arnold in this movie, but I'm sure none of them are the case... Like showing him as the terminator being sent back to 1984 by skynet - that sort of thing. But he's too old... Shit, I don't know. Hopefully they don't fuck up what has been up to this point a great sci-fi story.

Ah-node's maker, which was ahnode him self had a really big cock to begin with, so that's why we see T2's big cock in he Bar that time versus small white metalic prick of the Cop(consequently, the cop's small cock was a result of the maker having a 2 incher). In T3, arnode's maker saw how well he performed(with his cock, of course) in T2 so he mass produces these carcases all dress with black leather with cheap plastic eyeware. The zipper are the rip-able type that a cock sucker can just rip it on 2 sides without pulling down the zipper, which increases the rate of cock sucking by whole third!! Just think of the possibilities! Ah-nuld with his huge metalic cock fuck the shit out of Terminatrix's. Any Comments? Hey you guys started it...

    Interestingly enough, Stephen Hawking recently suggested that time travel into the past would be possible, but it would have to involve parallel universes. But this means that even if the Terminator goes back in time and kills Sarah, it's not going to affect the universe that he left from. He would be killing a different Sarah Connor in a different time and place, so in the original universe, John Connor would still be born. In that sense, time travel is futile for anyone but the traveler.

    Good Point, Pedant

    by NoCureForFools

    that's right. i guess if the whole destruction of the skynet chip did work, then John Connor would disappear and Sarah Connor would still be working at Bob's Big Boy or turning tricks or hanging out in awful clubs. that would have been a riot if that was how it ended. like some weird David Lynch mixed with Wizard of Oz style, inexplicable schizo-hallucinatory freak out: the screen fades and Sarah is older and ragged, not all cut, taking orders from Kyle Reese and Liquid Terminator (boyfriends) at the Bob's Big Boy. off to the side, you see Ed Furlong busing tables. she goes back to the kitchen to drop the order off with the cook, who is, of course, AHRNULD -- transformed into a illegal immigrant / refugee cook. you overhear peole talking about some movie about time traveling apocalypse robots that's coming out soon. the other person remarks that that is ludicrous. fade to black.

    The model name is TX

    by Porsche959

    ...not Terminatrix. It's the official designation according to the IMDB and Model: TX. People refer to Terminatrix because that was what some news reports mentioned a little ways back. Arnie's been pounding the weights on this one, Intermedia, who is financially backing T3, mentions he's training 6 hours a day in weapons, weight training, cardio and stunts for the movie. As well, Nick Stahl and Kristanna Loken are reportedly pumping up too (check out - T3). Cheers!

    This movie is going to blow. Old ass arnold, lame plot and crappy script. T-3 is the Batman and Robin of the series, guaranteed. Just an excuse for the studios to print some money.

    Will T3 be an over-the-top martial arts movie?

    by Yotaruvegeta

    I enjoyed terminator 1 and 2 for the style of fighting there was between the terminator and his adversaries. It was "sloppy," like how a real person would fight if faced with that situation. But since there will be a lot of young actors in this movie, will there be impossible acrobatics going on? I'll expect it from the new evil terminator, but I like the idea that the heroes are learning how to combat the terminators and they aren't skilled in fighting arts. I want to have the same feeling of desparation and excitement that I felt in the first two movies.

  • April 26, 2002, 3:10 p.m. CST

    Kristanna Loken...

    by Porsche959

    ... is training in the form of Krav Maga - one of the world's leading forms of martial arts. Nick Stahl is primarily being trained on weapons and defense - it will be interesting to see how this will all come together. Not much is known about T3... but the original script got a good review - except nobody knows the contents. It will be interesting... that's for sure.

    by chrisk102

    It just struck me seeing these photos that Arnold is getting really old. He isn't as large and imposing as he once was. His legs look thinner, his cheeks are sunken in... I guess cyborgs are so realistic that they age??? I am actually looking forward to this movie. I got a kick out of Breakdown and I think the guy who directed that will do well on T3...

    Arnie's bad shades

    by RichieFi

    Hasn't anyone else noticed that arnie's shades look absolutely shit? I mean, gimme the t2 or even t1 shades any day. He looks like he's just got back from a skiing holiday. And his face looks fake too. It sure as shit don't look like a T800, he looks like he went to a mountain climbing shop and bought himself a nice pair of Flys, or something. Damn, this is a bad sign. You know, if you said this was a shot from Terminator: The Series- starring Peter Kent, Arnold's T2 stunt double i'd believe you. 'night.

    I'll admit, the glasses do look a bit on the not straight side, and am I stoned, but it looks like arnold is wearing a turtleneck, I'm sorry, but it is damn near impossible to look badass and wear a turtleneck at the same time. Another thing that scares me is that the screenplay is done by the guy who did "Tank Girl". Now I've never seen it, but when I saw the preview, I wanted that 30 seconds of my life back. This movie better be good or I am gonna piss and moan about it an awful lot.

    by Kiyone

    ...and it was better than I expected, but still not as cool as T2. This time, instead of Skynet just sending the Terminators back through time, they also sent a whole fleet of Aerial and Ground-based H-Ks. But, as I said, it was only a dream, so there was a lot of crazy-ass dream logic shit too, like a criminal leading Starsky from phone booth to phone booth (Huggy Bear was not in this dream).

    by Deceited

    "Arnold wrenches his own arm off to get out of the gears and save the Conners [in T2]. Yet he later melts himself so his parts can't be used as a design to build Skynet, the villain behind all this. Remember that it was designed the first time around by the arm and chip of the T-800 from the first movie. WHAT HAPPENED TO HIS ARM? They throw the original arm and chip in after Arnold, but they never go back to get the arm in the gears. I think the answer to this is that they wanted to leave an explanation for T3, if they want to." --

    Terminator 3 Sequil?

    by budget_comp

    Ok,....The Leed-Off: Remember in T2? ... 1. The T800 Left his arm in the gears. 2. John Connor Threw The Chip Into The Molten Metal. 3. John Connors Relationship With The T800. Ok here it is.....#1 is obvious, but how does #2 & #3 make any sence? heres my prediction for the T3 movie: Because of John Connors ralationship with the T800, he found a chip in Cyberdine Systems (Remember in T2 just before they destroyed the building?)he found a chip SIMULAR to the T800 chip an switched it with the one from the T800 in his pocket. Which of course he threw into the molten metal. leaving the ORIGINAL chip in his pocket! Now to Terminator 3, he SUDDENLY runs a computer hacking thing? hhhhmmmmmm...... I think he uses the chip to bring his "Frendly" T800 back! causing the "Other" T-X to come back to stop him. So now who started the Temintor/Syberdine Systems? HHmmmm alittle contridiction?

    T3 story line

    by simonthorne

    The actual story line for T3 is that the T 800 is sent back to protect connor as, yep u guessed it the T-X is being sent back( in lovelly form of......can't remember). At some point during the film the T800 becomes under the control of Skynet and turns against connor. (Sorry have ruined the film for many people) T3 should be good, with Arnie it could hardly fail to be, could it. He still looks good for his age though, not that different form T2. Cheers

    Ok, here is the scoop! I live in the town that they filmed T3 in, I mean that part where they got the offical pic from. They were there for 4 weeks and they did some kick ass stuff. The part with the truck is from a big explosion, cause to the left of the animal hospital (the builing with a truck in it) there was a tool rentals place witha huge gas tank. The truck ran into a nice new Lexus belonging to Kristana Lokens Terminatrix, and blew lots of s*#t Up!!! The pasrt is awsome, with gun fights and running and Claire Dains (SO HOT!!!) Trust me, this movie will kick ass!!!

They can't have flashes going off when the camera is rolling so they had him stand like he would when the camers were rolling, took a pic and went on filming. That was the night they did the explsion, I was there till 3 in the morning cause they filmed from 9:30 pm till 8:00 am.
