Summary As the success of the recent Transformers movies proves, the movie-going public can't get enough of robots. Cyborgs-close kin to the robot-also continue to fascinate, appearing in several popular movie franchises. Readers will learn about the rich history of robots and cyborgs on film and television, from the robots that featured in the silent movies of the 1920s to today's high-tech creations. Learn about the endearing R2-D2 and C-3PO, the formidable adversaries Megatron and Optimus Prime, the well-nigh unstoppable Terminator and many, many more.
