Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines (2003)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
John Conner, now an adult, in fear of the events that took place at a young age, lives off the grid--no phone, no job, no credit cards. After failing twice, SkyNet sends their most advanced machine to date, the T-X or Terminatrix, to not only kill John, but his future wife as well. Once again, a Terminator is sent to protect John and his future wife, and has a small upgrade which allows it to mimick humans more. Not knowing how these terminators were sent, considering he thought he destroyed SkyNet, John will soon learn something that will change his life...forever.

- Its $170 million budget is the highest approved budget to date (other movies cost more, but had smaller "approved" budgets).
After viewing initial dailies, the director, Jonathan Mostow deemed Sophia Bush too young to play hero John Connor's love interest, and replaced her with Claire Danes at the last minute. Danes started filming immediately and basically learned about her character on the job. Danes later said this may have helped her performance, as Kate Brewster's character was similarly thrust into a strange new reality with no warning.
Claire Forlani auditioned for the part of Kate Brewster.
The role of John Connor came down to Shane West and Nick Stahl. Stahl was cast but almost had to drop out because of scheduling conflicts. West was told that if Stahl were to drop out then he was be cast in the film but in the end, Stahl's schedule was changed and he kept the role of John Connor.
A number of actors were supposedly in the running for the role of the T-X, including Vin Diesel, Shaquille O'Neal, Famke Janssen, and former WWF wrestler Chyna (Joanie Laurer). Laurer's name came into the mix when she was recommended for the part by Arnold Schwarzenegger himself during an interview prior to filming.
