Looking back, it’s not surprising that James Cameron’s film, with its tech-noir aesthetic and themes of nuclear apocalypse, made such an impact.
The Terminator grossed $78.3 million at the box office, having cost just $6.4m to make, and spawned a franchise that continued with Terminator 2: Judgement Day in 1991, and saw its most recent cinematic iteration in 2015 with Terminator Genisys.
