It is directed by Jonathan Mostow and stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Nick Stahl, Claire Danes, and Kristanna Loken. In its plot, the malevolent artificial intelligence Skynet sends a T-X (Loken)—a highly advanced Terminatorback in time to ensure the rise of machines by killing top members of the future human resistance as John Connor's (Stahl) location is unknown.
