James Cameron directed The Terminator, a 1984 science fiction action film. It stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator; a cyborg assassin sent back in time from 2029 to 1984 to assassinate Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton), whose unborn son would one day save humanity from extinction in a post-apocalyptic future at the hands of a hostile artificial intelligence. Kyle Reese, played by Michael Biehn, is a soldier sent back in time to defend Sarah. Cameron and producer Gale Anne Hurd are credited with the script, with co-writer William Wisher Jr. receiving credit for additional dialogue.

In Rome, Cameron based the film’s idea on a fever dream he had while promoting his debut picture, Piranha II: The Spawning (1982), and collaborated with Wisher to create the concept. He sold the project’s rights to Hurd, a fellow New World Pictures alum, on the condition that she produce the film only if he directed it; Hurd eventually landed a distribution deal with Orion Pictures, and executive producers John Daly and Derek Gibson of Hemdale Film Corporation were instrumental in the film’s financing and production.

After knowing Cameron, Schwarzenegger decided to portray the main character after being contacted by Orion for the part of Reese. Because of Schwarzenegger’s obligations to Conan the Destroyer (1984), filming was delayed, but Cameron found time to work on the screenplays for Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985) and Aliens (1986). (1986). A team of artists directed by Stan Winston and Gene Warren Jr. developed the film’s special effects, which featured miniatures and stop-motion animation.


The Terminator defied low pre-release predictions and led the US box office for two weeks, collecting $78.3 million against a small $6.4 million budget. Cameron’s cinematic career was launched, and Schwarzenegger’s position as a leading man was cemented, thanks to it. The popularity of the film spawned a franchise that included many sequels, a television series, comic books, novels, and video games. The Terminator was chosen for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 2008 as “culturally, historically, or aesthetically important.”

A Terminator, a cyborg assassin from the year 2029, appears in 1984 Los Angeles. Soon later, Kyle Reese, a human soldier transported back in time from the same year, appears. The Terminator begins a methodical killing spree of Sarah Connor, whose addresses it discovers in the phone book. The final Sarah Connor is tracked to a nightclub, but Kyle saves her. The duo steals a car and flee, with the Terminator in a police car chasing them.

Kyle reveals to Sarah as they hide in a parking lot that an artificial intelligence defensive network called Skynet, developed by Cyberdyne Systems, would become self-aware shortly and launch a nuclear holocaust. John, Sarah’s future son, will unite the survivors and head a resistance movement against Skynet and his army of robots. Skynet sends a Terminator back in time to murder Sarah before John is born, preventing the emergence of the Resistance, as the Resistance was on the edge of triumph. The Terminator, a Cyberdyne Systems Model 101, is a lethal killing machine with a strong metal endoskeleton and a human-like exterior layer of living tissue.
