“Pain is temporary. Film is forever.” This infamous quote, repeated by director John Milius to actor Arnold Schwarzenegger (and the rest of the cast) on the set of 1982’s Conan the Barbarian was used to illustrate a point: Whatever painful and labororius physical obstacles the actors would have to endure in life to make a movie (and the medical toll it would take on their bodies for years to come), it was worth it, because the pain in life will not last.. but film will live on forever. But as computer technology used in film to recreate human beings has advanced rapidly throughout the years, it appears actors may now live on forever too… and the Terminator franchise will benefit from that greatly.
While the Chinese people were very unfortunate back in 1991 to miss out on a theatrical release of the blockbuster film ‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day”, the tide has certainly turned for them now. Not only will Terminator fans in China get to see the new 3D conversion of T2 first (as well as premiere with star Arnold Schwarzenegger and a massive T2 mobile MMORPG game), but fans were treated to a T2 25th Anniversary exhibition this year too!
In conjunction with DMG and STUDIOCANAL’S upcoming theatrical 3D conversion of one of the most celebrated films of all time, “Terminator 2: Judgment Day”, the toy manufacturer NECA announced several months ago that a new figure would be released in celebration of this historic occasion. Now, NECA has finally previewed this long awaited T2 in 3D exclusive figure to the public.
