Back in March, we told you that James Cameron’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day would be returning to theaters this summer. A passion project of Cameron himself, the sci-fi classic is being remastered and given a special 3D treatment for a limited theater release in August.
We’ve talked plenty about the potential thrills a 3D release of T2 could provide (who wouldn’t want to see T-1000 emerge from the screen in all his gooey glory?), but a new 2D trailer has shown that a simple remastering of the movie has the potential to cause most Terminator fans a moment of major geeky joy.
The irony of a 2D trailer to promote a 3D release is certainly not lost on us, but when you blow the video up on your screen and watch the footage in all its glory, it’s compelling enough to pique our interest in returning to the theater.
The special screenings will take place on August 25th. Check out the official poster and synopsis for the movie down below:
It has been 10 years since the events of Terminator. Sarah Connor’s ordeal is only just beginning as she struggles to protect her son John, the future leader of the human resistance against the machines, from a new Terminator, sent back in time to eliminate John Connor while he’s still a child.
Sarah and John don’t have to face this terrifying threat alone however. The human resistance have managed to send them an ally, a warrior from the future ordered to protect John Connor at any cost.
The battle for tomorrow has begun….
James Cameron’s masterpiece starring Arnold Schwarzenegger in his most iconic role, has been converted in immersive 3D by Cameron himself. First hitting our screens in 1991 with groundbreaking special effects, the 3D version will take the seminal blockbuster to the next level of effects and into the 21st century for the next generation of fans.
