AMC Theaters and Distrib Films US are set to present a 4K restoration of Terminator 2: Judgment Day for the first time in 3D later this summer.
The science fiction classic starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is known for its groundbreaking visual effects created by Industrial Light and Magic as well as non-stop pulse pounding action sequences featuring practical effects. The sequel to James Cameron’s 1984 The Terminator cost a total of $102 million to produce and went on to earn $204 million at the domestic box office. It also won four Academy Awards for its Sound, Visual Effects, Makeup, and Sound Effects Editing.
For the theatrical re-release, the film has been converted to 3D by Cameron himself and will be screening exclusively at AMC Theaters. Details of screenings can be found at terminator2-3d.c
A new trailer for the theatrical re-release featuring the director has also been revealed. “The images feel more real in 3D,” Cameron says. “There’s a lucidity to it. You really feel like you’re there. We’re talking about 25 years later. A lot fans of the movie weren’t even born when it was made so for a lot of people it will just be the thrill of seeing it in a movie theater.”
In the trailer, Cameron also praises the work done by Stereo D as “spectacular”. You can check it out below.
The film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as The Terminator, Edward Furlong as John Connor, Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor, Robert Patrick as the T-1000, Joe Morton as Miles Bennett Dyson, and Earl Boen as Dr. Peter Silberman. Here’s the official synopsis:
In this sequel set eleven years after “The Terminator,” young John Connor (Edward Furlong), the key to civilization’s victory over a future robot uprising, is the target of the shape-shifting T-1000 (Robert Patrick), a Terminator sent from the future to kill him. Another Terminator, the revamped T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger), has been sent back to protect the boy. As John and his mother (Linda Hamilton) go on the run with the T-800, the boy forms an unexpected bond with the robot.
