New York: Applause Books, 1991. 1st Printing. Quarto, publisher's stiff photo-illustrated wraps.
Illustrated sourcebook for James Cameron’s blockbuster sequel. Reuniting the director with his two major stars, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton (who would become Cameron’s wife), the film was given a reversed narrative and action-adventure plotline, in opposition to the original sci-fi thriller. Surpassing the original Terminator (1984) in size and scope—with a $102 million budget, it was the most expensive film made at the time—T2 was released to major critical and popular acclaim, and catapulted Schwarzenegger to top international stardom. Published with the film’s release, this "book of the film" comprises the full screenplay, detailed annotations chronicling the movie’s production and filming strategies, and over 700 black-and-white film stills and storyboard sketches. Opens with a foreword by Cameron on his creative process. Price sticker to rear wrap. Moderate rubbing and edgewear to wraps, with some page corners banged. Very good. Item #5062
