- [from trailer] John Connor: I knew it. I knew it was coming. But this is not the future my mother warned me about. And in this future, I don't know if we can win this war. This is John Connor.
[from trailer] Kyle Reese: Come with me if you want to live.
[from trailer] John Connor: Win or lose, this war ends tonight!
John Connor: [to Marcus] You and me, we've been at war since before either of us even existed. You tried killing my mother, Sarah Connor. You killed my father, Kyle Reese. You will not kill me.
John Connor: The devil's hands have been busy. What is it? Kate Connor: It's real flesh and blood, though it seems to heal itself quickly. The heart is human and very powerful. The brain, too, but with a chip interface. Marcus Wright: What have you done to me? Kate Connor: It has a hybrid nervous system. One human cortex, one machine. Marcus Wright: Blair, what have they done? John Connor: Who built you? Marcus Wright: My name is Marcus Wright. John Connor: You think you're human? Marcus Wright: I am human.
- After Claire Danes declined to reprise her role as Kate Brewster, Charlotte Gainsbourg was once attached to star before pulling out due to a scheduling conflict with another film. She was replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard.
Helena Bonham Carter replaced Tilda Swinton shortly before filming was set to begin. She filmed her role in 10 days.
Helena Bonham Carter lost four members of her family in a car crash. As a result, filming was halted indefinitely so she could return to the UK to tend to her family.
Director McG asked the cast and crew to read the novel "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy and "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick - the basis for Blade Runner (1982) - because he wanted them to absorb the bleakness of the world in the novels.
In early 2008, Paul Haggis was brought on to polish the script. After he was done, three weeks before filming, Shawn Ryan was asked to rewrite the script, and he took "a pretty big whack" at it. However, he later had to return to television, and the filmmakers "subsequently brought in one or two other writers to continue the work," most likely Anthony E. Zuiker and Jonathan Nolan. So extensive were the rewrites that Alan Dean Foster decided to rewrite the entire novelization after submitting it to his publisher, because the compiled shooting script was very different from the one he was given beforehand.
