"Casting Arnold Schwarzenegger as our Terminator, on the other hand, shouldn't have worked. The guy is supposed to be an infiltration unit, and there's no way you wouldn't spot a Terminator in a crowd instantly if they all looked like Arnold. It made no sense whatsoever. But the beauty of movies is that they don't have to be logical. They just have to have plausibility. If there's a visceral, cinematic thing happening that the audience likes, they don't care if it goes against what's likely."
—James Cameron on casting Schwarzenegger.
The Terminator was a low-budget film costing $6.4 million to produce. Though the film was not expected to be either a commercial or critical success, The Terminator topped the American box office for twoweeks and helped launch the film career of James Cameron, as well as solidify the acting career of Schwarzenegger making him the star that he his now.
