“Terminator 2: Judgment Day” is undeniably legendary in the annals of action films, not to mention a technological nightmare scenario that scientists and writers alike still refer to as we take technological steps towards bigger drones and smarter computers.

According to YouTube channel CinemaSins, were that nightmare scenario to actually transpire, it would cost $29,844, 352 in current dollars, with the estimated cost of a T-1000 alone stretching $10 million at the low end.

But as the narrator notes, “none of that really matters because the true cost, as we said, is $0. Robots building robots in a post-apocalyptic future is a very low-overhead business.”
