Next year is already scheduled to have a bunch of great blockbusters. One, however, you’ve already seen, just never like this. Terminator 2: Judgment Day is been re-released in 3D for the film’s 25th anniversary.


Cameron has been working on the conversion with a company called StereoD and will release the brand new 3D version of the 1991 mega-hit worldwide. However, the focus of the campaign will be China, where the franchise is massive, even though Terminator 2 has never been released there theatrically. The latest sequel, Terminator Genisys, grossed over $110 million in China earlier this year .

“Next year marks the 25th anniversary of Terminator 2 and that seemed like the perfect time to bring it back but this time in an all-new 3D version,” Cameron told The Hollywood Reporter. “If you’ve never seen it, this’ll be the version you want to see and remember.”


Cameron is quite the 3D fan. Besiding pushing the medium ahead in a big way with Avatar, he’s already re-released his other mega hit, Titanic, in 3D back in 2012.

I’ll be happy to watch Terminator 2 in the theater for the first time... if I can find one with a manager who’s more sane than Cameron, and willing to show it in 2D.

This crap reminds me of all the 30s and 40s classics, originally shot in a 4:3 aspect ratio, that have been “enhanced” by a panoramic crop.
