Three billion human lives ended on August 29th, 1997. The survivors of the nuclear fire called the war The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day.

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Picture.

Today’s image is exhibit A in why model work rules. The little glimpses of the future war we got in both of James Cameron’s Terminator films really left me wanting for me, which is a good thing because when we got that more with Terminator: Salvation I suddenly didn’t want it much anymore.

However, I’m sure if we ever got Cameron’s future war-set Terminator film I wouldn’t be saying that. Anyway, what we did get was tremendous and today we get to focus on one of the best elements of that future war: those badass giant machine tank bastards.

This image has everything… fire, badass model work and a guy in the foreground to give it some scale (Hooper knew what he was talking about on that one).

Many thanks to Michael Heintzelman and the Practical Effects Group for the shot from Terminator 2: Judgment Day! Enjoy!

If you have a behind the scenes shot you’d like to submit to this column, you can email me at

What the hell… let’s go ahead and feature another Cameron sci-fi sequel with tomorrow’s pic.
