The special effects in the cinema - the magic cardboard Terminator (30 photos)

The fact that the fifth "Terminator" have learned long ago. All fans of the nearly 30-year-old franchise is most concerned by the question, whether the return to operation of T-800, also known as the former governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, aka. According to the latest hints, "Iron Arnie" still walked away from the scandalous divorce and take part in the revival for a decade drooping series about the struggle of humanity and robots.
We decided to recall the first two, without exaggeration legendary, films with Arnie as a ruthless killer cyborg. How complex scenes were shot in the "Terminator" and "Judgment Day", to which was capable computer graphics 30-20 years ago and why we repeatedly went to theaters and video salons at some of the most memorable bands of the last century - in a series of our articles . Today, let us remember one of the most iconic films of the 1980s.
The first "Terminator" - a wonderful example of how you can make a good fantasy film for little money by Hollywood standards. Imagine that one of the most exciting fighters of that time was spent only $ 6, 4 million. Adjusted for inflation, today it would be "pathetic" $ 14 million, for which none of the venerable director will undertake to take such an ambitious project. Later, James Cameron joked that the film was made for the cost of the camper in which he lived Arnold Schwarzenegger during the work on "Terminator 2».

It is because of lack of computer technology the idea was abandoned, but it flowed smoothly released in theaters in seven years, "Terminator 2».
Because of the modest budget in the trash gone most of the script, which describes the events in the future. It is said that in the first version of the script cinematic alter ego Arnold Schwarzenegger was there to maintain the normal form of his human "shell". Unfortunately or fortunately, but in the final version of the film Terminator not slurp soup and eats dumplings. It is unlikely that the rejection of this idea is somehow connected with a low budget.
