Terminator 2: Judgment Day Is Coming Back to Theaters in Unnecessary 3D


Terminator 2: Judgment Day recently celebrated its 25th anniversary and now we find out it will be returning to theaters. In 3D. I’ll allow it, but I don’t have to like it.

The official Facebook page for Terminator 2: Judgment Day posted this new Arnold Schwarzenegger poster along with the message.

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.

There actually already is a sort of Terminator 2 3D in existence. It’s an interactive live action show at Universal Studios Florida. It’s actually pretty rad.

But while I’m excited to be able to see one of my favorite films in theaters again, I can’t say it getting a 3D upgrade excites me. I’d be totally fine just seeing the regular version (it totally stands up) and I think most other fans would be as well.

    If this comes to a theater near me I’ll watch it, just because it’s T2 on the big screen again…

    Getting to watch T2 on the big screen for the first time? YAAAAYY! Having to see it in 3D? Meh, not my favorite thing but I’ll put up with it for the chance to see the awesomeness that is Sarah Conner doing chin-ups.

  3. I love this headline. I hate 3D and still don’t get why they keep trying to push it so hard. When 3D gets good, and it can be done without giving people motion sickness, great, but until then eff off with the 3D, and at least give us some IMAX showings for tentpole films that are 2D in the meantime.

    I would much rather get a restored print or new Blu transfer than 3D. Some of us wear glasses dammit, and the 3D frames just give me a headache.

      I also hope that, if they do release a new Blu Ray, that they don’t have the same issue they had with the DVD transfer from a few years ago that caused a class action suit– they purposefully labeled a fullscreen transfer as a widescreen, so they wouldn’t have to re-master a transfer twice. Happened with a lot of that production company’s DVDs, if memory serves.

  5. Every time I have access to a new TV or new higher definition video or sound system, T2 is one of the first movies I throw in…I’ll watch it under almost any condition.

    But this I’ll pass.

    Cameron. Buddy. Amigo. Let 3D go.
