Get ready folks! James Cameron's sci-fi masterpiece Terminator 2: Judgement Day is now officially getting a 3-D re-release in theaters next year! Earlier today on the official Terminator 2 Facebook page, a brand new poster dropped with a caption reading:
“August 29th 1997: The day Skynet first became self aware.
August 29th 2016: the day you first saw the brand new poster for Terminator 2 in 3D. Coming to theaters in 2017.”
Check out the cool poster below and sound off in the comments section with your thoughts. Will you be checking out Terminator 2 in 3-D next year? Let us know, why or why not? As always thanks for stopping by EastCoastMovieGuys!
In June 2014 Cameron spoke to why he would not be converting the first TERMINATOR movie, but would convert the sequel:
"You could upgrade it to 3D but it’s still pretty gritty, available light photography, low budget filmmaking. We’d spend more converting it to 3D than we spent on the movie. That feels a little imbalanced to me."
“[TERMINATOR 2] has a kind of timeless appeal. If there was someone who was interested in doing that, and we could make a good case for the business model like, perhaps let’s say, it’s never been on screens in China which in the next few years is about to become the biggest market for films worldwide. That alone might justify the cost of a conversion which might be 6 or 7 million dollars. And then a 3D re-release might attract some eyeballs in North American and Europe and then the Chinese release, which would be the first release on the big screen, might pay for it.”
Terminator 2 in 3-D will hit theaters in 2017!
