After taking a dozen years off from playing his most famous character, Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to his robotic ways in "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines." With a different director, a different actor playing the role of John Connor, and a lot more humor, "Terminator" fans have a lot to look forward to in this latest edition of the popular franchise.

Deftly sidestepping questions about his political aspirations Arnold Schwarzenegger, accompanied by his wife Maria Shriver, answered a few questions at the June 30, 2003 World Premiere of "Terminator 3:"


Is there going to be an 'Arnold Schwarzenegger for Governor' campaign in your future?
I'm very happy to promote "Terminator 3" now, here, and to let the world know that it's coming out on July 2nd for the July 4th weekend. It's the big weekend for "Terminator." That's what we're doing here. Never deviate from that - always stay on the message. That's the key thing here. The budget was $200 million and we spent every penny of it. The stunts were great too.

Will there be a "Terminator 4?"
The fans will make the decision if there's going to be a "T4." You could never make a sequel or a prequel or the fourth one without having the fans behind it. If this movie is successful then most likely there will be a fourth one.

"Terminator 3" should have a built-in fan base.
The fans really pushed and campaigned to make a "Terminator 3." Without the fans, we don't have anything.

Did you think you would make three of these?
Well in the first movie I said I'd be back (laughing). I always want to say thank you very much to the fans for their support.

This "Terminator" has a lot more humor in it than the first two did.
Well the other two "Terminators" were also humorous in many ways but I think in this movie we went a little bit further with the humor because people enjoyed the humor so much. So as the Terminator, even though I'm a machine, I'm funny sometimes.

And one final try - are you going to be our next governor?
I'm coming out in “Terminator 3” on July 2nd.
