Late July it was announced that Terminator 2: Judgment Day is coming to home video this October 3rd in the United States, released by Lionsgate! Many fans were frustrated with the lack of 3D disc, but now fans have something additional to be frustrated with: A delay.
Well in some countries the T-800 Model 101 still has it! While the remastered 3D conversion on Terminator 2: Judgment Day faltered in the United States, T2 in 3D’s one day showing on August 29th (Judgment Day) in the United Kingdom blew away the August competition to take the #1 box-office spot for one day!
While Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D premiered several days ago this past weekend for much of the world, the loyal Terminator fans in the United Kingdom had to wait until today, August 29th, Judgment Day, to experience the theatrical re-release of this classic science fiction film! So what did those patient fans (and others) think about T2 in 3D? Let’s find out!
We are saddened to report the 3D theatrical re-release of arguably the best science fiction sequel ever created Terminator 2: Judgment Day, had a poor showing its opening weekend in the United States. Yes, the actual box-office numbers are in and T2 in 3D ultimately underperformed.
The word resent is an impactful word, which means to feel bitterness or indignation at. So would it surprise you that actor Robert Patrick felt resentment towards his 1991 iconic role as the deadly T-1000 in “Terminator 2: Judgment Day”? Most struggling actors would consider playing the liquid metal assassin a role of a lifetime, so how could Robert have come to feel this way?
As the weekend draws to a close, we want to look back on this momentous re-release event of Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D not through the eyes of James Cameron, nor Arnold, Robert, Linda or Edward… but through the eyes and hearts of Terminator fans. Some saw T2 in the cinema for the first time. Some fans experienced it again. But all had an experience they will never forget.
In promotion of the 3D theatrical re-release of “Terminator 2: Judgment Day”, the creator of our favorite franchise had a conversation with the popular entertainment news magazine Entertainment Weekly. The subject of Terminator 6 naturally came up, and how likely was it really going to happen. (It seemed like the interviewer was skeptical about T6.)
After our recent news report that, according to Forbes, it looks like Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D may turn out to be a box-office disappointment in the United States, some Terminator fans became furious! They wondered how could a news site judge box-office disappointment with a movie in such a limited release? T2 in 3D is only playing in 463 theaters for crying out loud!
Some Terminator fans have expressed concern over the limited amount of promotion they have seen for the 3D theatrical re-release of Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D. A few avid fans in the United States have even contacted us with concerns that friends and co-workers were completely unaware that T2 was being theatrically released this weekend, until they told them so. So is it a surprise that Forbes is now reporting that T2 “bombed” in the United States?
When Terminator Genisys was theatrically released the summer of 2015, the movie received backlash from both critics and the public. While some critics like Tom Long at the Detroit News said ‘Terminator Genisys’ was “the first fully worthy successor to Cameron’s original films” and Terminator fans polled at Skynet’s Army overwhelmingly ranked it as their third favorite Terminator film, the majority of critics and public lampooned it (and its actors), making Genisys the unofficial punching bag of 2015.
It’s finally here Terminator fans! Back in December 2015, James Cameron announced he would be partnering with DMG Entertainment and Studiocanal to give his 1991 blockbuster “Terminator 2: Judgment Day’ the most advanced 3D conversion to date. Originally targeted to be timed with the film’s 25th Anniversary (a benchmark that has now passed), fans still couldn’t be more excited to see this amazing movie again (or for the first time) where it was meant to be seen… in the cinema!
Most Terminator fans know that James Cameron originally intended a different ending for Terminator 2: Judgment Day, referred to as the future coda. This original filmed conclusion shows a brighter future thanks to the T-800 Model 101, featuring an old Sarah Connor reflecting about a Judgment Day that never occurred, and her son John Connor fighting a different fight now, as a U.S. Senator.
