Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

Interminable but profitable. The clunky Terminator on the left was the first model manufactured by humans before the machines took over and dispatched the familiar model on the right back through time to prevent the birth of future revolutionary John Connor. Connor later sent another of the same model to save himself from a newer model. The Schwarzenegger version has returned to save Connor from an even newer killing machine and prevent human extinction.
