Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines is a 2003 science fiction film directed by Jonathan Mostow and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Nick Stahl, Claire Danes and Kristanna Loken. It is the sequel to The Terminator (1984) and Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). It was released in the United States on July 2, 2003.
This film was Arnold Schwarzenegger's final starring role before becoming Governor of California, after being elected in the 2003 California recall. In order to ride a wave of publicity focused on Schwarzenegger, the DVD release of this movie was scheduled several weeks after the election. Warner Home Video released the film on HD DVD on May 9 in North America, 2006.
A fourth film in the saga has been announced and will be released in 2008. It is also to be directed by Jonathan Mostow. To date, a cast list has not been released, but it is rumoured that Nick Stahl will be reprising his role as John Connor

In the absence of the previously scheduled Judgment Day, John Connor has gone from messiah to burn-out, and is wandering aimlessly around Southern California, living "off the grid" with no permanent home or credit cards so he can't be tracked. Unfortunately, it seems the apocalypse was only delayed (not prevented) by his actions in the second movie. The United States Air Force has taken over the Skynet project. Skynet sends another advanced new Terminator model, the T-X, back in time to kill the human resistance's future lieutenants and John Connor if possible.
As with Terminator 2: Judgment Day, a reprogrammed Terminator, a Cyber Research Systems Model 101, Series 850, (played by Schwarzenegger) has been sent back in time to protect John as well as his future wife (Kate Brewster) from the T-X, later dubbed the "Terminatrix".
In a plot twist, this particular T-850 reveals that he is in fact the murderer of John Connor in the distant future and that Connor's wife reprogrammed him for the mission. This plot point serves to illustrate the Machines' complete lack of both emotion and personal will. Another twist to the formula of the previous films is that the T-X is armed with a full arsenal of advanced weapons from the future: in the first two films, it is said that nothing but living tissue can be sent backwards through time, so time travel by humans requires that they be naked and without weapons. Although a Terminator is a metal robot, it is surrounded by living tissue (however, the T-1000 Terminator in T2 is all-metal). The T-X expands on this principle by having internal weapons, thus enabling this model to be transported back in time.
In the end, Kate Brewster's father tricks Connor and Kate into taking cover from the impending Skynet nuclear attack in a Cold War-era VIP fallout shelter ("Crystal Peak"), by making them believe that it is where the Skynet mainframe is located. As they try to open a security door with codes given to them by Kate's father, they are found by T-X. The Terminator, who was thought to have been destroyed earlier in the movie, saves them and terminates the T-X.
Connor and Kate enter the base and discover that it does not contain "Skynet"; Skynet is in fact a distributed computer program. They had been tricked into entering the base in order to protect them. In a nihilistic turn, the main characters are unable to avert Judgment Day and Skynet triggers a nuclear apocalypse, paving the way for the Machines' rise to power. However, there is a glimmer of hope when the bunker is filled with the voices of confused military forces and ham radio operators asking for orders and guidance. With some hesitation, Connor picks up the microphone to respond, laying the groundwork for his eventually-successful leadership of the human resistance to the Machines.
