Notes & Trivia Edit

Timeline Edit

  • The futuristic scenes from the film take place in the year 2029.

Fun facts Edit

  • Sure, one could use movie magic and old school split-screen techniques to create the scene where Sarah Connor faces off the T-1000, who is disguised as her. But why bother, when you can just have your twin sister do it? Yup, Leslie Hamilton Gearren, who plays the "twin Sarah" morphed T-1000 in this film is Linda Hamilton's twin sister. This is Leslie's first, and to date, only known film work.
