Synopsis: More than 10 years after 'Terminator 2', John Connor now exists only as a drifter - living 'off the grid', so no more Terminators from the future can hunt him down. Unfortunately, SkyNet does send another one back - and this one is called the T-X, even more powerful & advanced than the dreaded T-1000. However, another CSM-101 Terminator is also sent back to protect John against the T-X. Now, Skynet is patiently assuming control of civilian computer systems, under the guise of a computer virus. John has also met his future wife, Kate Brewster, whose father - a U.S. Air Force General - is in charge of the military computer systems & is leery of up linking SkyNet. However, when the SkyNet virus infects the U.S military computers & leaves the country open to attack, the machines begin their horrific takeover. Soon a nuclear war will result - and the war against the machines will begin. Can the outdated CSM-101 Terminator eliminate the highly advanced T-X - or will a darker future await...


Somebody emailed me and said: "Congratulations on scoring T3, are you going to be using Brad Fiedels theme or are you going to write new music for this?" I innocently replied, "I dont know yet what the status of Brad Fiedel theme is, whether its going to be used or not, but Im certainly going to write new material as well." The next thing I know, this ends up on the web as "Beltrami plans to write new material for the Terminator movie." There is this site www.thearnoldfans.com, and there are some real fanatics there, so I must have gotten a few hundred emails per week, all threatening me, "Listen you son of a bitch, better use the theme," or "Whats wrong with you, why did they even hire you on this movie? They should kick you off," many emails like this. I thought, "Oh Christ!" so at that point I didnt answer any more emails. I mentioned this to Jonathan and he said, "It doesnt matter what people want, the thing is, we have to do whats right for the movie." The bottom line was that we tried it, we tried to use T2 theme, but it took you right out of our movie. We decided to pay homage to it at the end of the movie and do an arrangement of it, which I think works well. Now if you go to thearnoldfans.com website it has a glowing review of my score on it.
