This Week in 1991: 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day' Morphs Into a Hit


Fortunately for us all, James Cameron was wrong.

If the dire predictions in 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day' (released 20 years ago this week, on July 3, 1991) had come true, we'd all be dead or enslaved by robots by now.

Still, there's no denying Cameron has been a visionary, and he proved it with this sci-fi sequel, which has been one of the most influential movies of the last 20 years. As moviegoers line up this weekend for another movie about a lad who challenges a seemingly invincible, shapeshifting robot, it's worth looking back and appreciating the massive impact of 'T2.'
