Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Much like Jurassic Park, Terminator 2 hit me at the perfect age. Parents today wouldn’t consider it a family movie (hell, probably parents at the time too if I’m going to be honest), but we were big Terminator fans in my household. The film holds the distinction of being the very first movie I saw more than once in a theater and that wasn’t my call, although I was more than happy to see it again, that just goes to show how much my folks loved the movie, too. They never rewatched films in the theater.
It’s kind of a different era… Can you imagine an R-rated film today have mass market merchandising aimed at kids? There was a line of Terminator 2 toys, trading cards, pinball machines, arcade games and clothing. And when I say toys, I don’t mean Neca toys aimed at adult kids, but real deal sold-at-Toys-R-Us for kid kids toys. I had ‘em!
It’s a helluva thing to think back on.
Today’s pic features Robert Patrick being fitted with his shotgun wounds by effects technicians John Rosengrant and Richard Landon from the big finale.

Tomorrow’s pic is also from the second film in a series and one that I particularly love!
