August 29th is a big day in the Terminator mythology. It’s Judgment Day—the day Skynet became self-aware and blew the world to hell. To celebrate this year’s anniversary, the franchise announced that Terminator 2: Judgment Day will get a 3D theatrical release in 2017.
If this all sounds a bit familiar, give yourself a gold star. In 2015, news broke that director James Cameron was working on the 3D version of the film for a 2016 release. That, obviously, didn’t happen, but today the official Facebook posted this.
Here’s a bigger version of the poster.
Unfortunately, there is no news on when specifically this will be happening, or how wide the release will be. The original plans were for the 3D version of the film to screen mainly for China and it’s likely that’s still the plan.
I remember the excitement of seeing Terminator 2 on the big screen as a young boy and any opportunity to relive that magic, even if it’s in a format that’s largely become nothing but a cash grab, is something I’ll be checking out.
