In case you didn’t know one of the greatest genre classics ever is scheduled to return to the big screen in 3D format August 25th, and now a new trailer has arrived to announce the event.
Distrib Films US released the new Terminator 2: 3D trailer. This trailer plays a bit more like a featurette as the footage includes a recommendation by writer-director James Cameron explaining why you should check out the 3D re-release of the film. He points out that since the movie came out 25 years ago (it will turn 26 tomorrow), there’s an entire generation of fans that have never experienced T2 on the big screen.
He goes on to say that he’s worked with Stereo D, “the best 3D conversion house in the world”, to create a 3D experience that’s more immersive. Since you’re likely viewing this in 2D on your phone or computer, we won’t know if the movie benefits from a 3D post-conversion, but at the very least, we know that Cameron cares about the quality of post-conversion. If the 3D gets his stamp of approval, then it’s probably well done.
I can say it looks amazing on my OLED screen. I am excited to get the chance to see it on the big screen. T2 is one of the greatest genre films of all time, and damn close to being perfect. Will fans dish out the dough to see it again?
Synopsis: It has been ten 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 has 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 converted to 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 viewing material and into the 21st century for the next generation of fans.
