Well this doesn’t look promising. The high performance video and audio publication Home Cinema Choice received an advanced review copy of the 4K remastered home video release of “Terminator 2 Judgment Day” and the reviewer found the picture quality to be problematic, to say the least. After the unrelenting delays of both the single disc and endo arm releases, how much disappointment can fans take with this release?
Well, the hits just keep on coming. Last week we reported that the 3D/4K Blu-ray release of the remastered “Terminator 2: Judgment Day”, originally slated for the first week of October, was postponed until December (reported HERE). Well now we have received word that the T2 Endo Arm Special Edition release won’t be coming out now until March of 2018. That’s right, a whole six months later than its initial announced release date.
Hot on the heels of the T2 Endo Arm Special Edition Blu-Ray set being postponed indefinitely (reported HERE), the single disc release of the “Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D/4K” has been delayed yet again! This time, the release date has been benched until December!
First, it was announced in July that the Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D Endo Arm Special Edition blu-ray set would make its way to the homes of fans the first week of October! Then in August, we reported that the entire T2 in 3D title was delayed almost an entire month later (not just the Endo Arm set) with a new target release date of October 30th to November 7th (depending on where you live.) Well now, yet again, there is another delay!
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.
When the 4K Blu-Ray EndoArm Limited Collector’s Edition was announced yesterday for Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D (reported HERE), it generated a lot of excitement among fans. However, it generated a great deal of confusion too, when a 3D disc and 3D logo was notably absent from the United States version. This made a lot of fans upset, and here’s why:
It’s just been announced that Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D is coming to home video this October 3rd in the United States, released by Lionsgate! Yes, arguably the best science fiction sequel ever made is getting a Limited Collector’s Edition EndoArm box set in the U.S. (just like the U.K. Zavvi edition we announced earlier today HERE) which will include a 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray and Digital HD). Unfortunately, while the UK version comes with a 3D disc, it does appear that due to the lack of popularity with 3D televisions in the United States, the U.S. version of this collector’s set will not contain a 3D disc (nor an original soundtrack CD) like its UK counterpart.
Now this is exciting Terminator fans! Zavvi, an entertainment company based in the United Kingdom and known for their lavish home video releases, has just announced what their blu-ray collector’s edition for Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D will contain! While many expected another Endoskull bust collectible, Zavvi has just announced a collector’s edition containing a T-800 Endo Arm!
Being the second highest grossing film in this entire legendary franchise, it is no surprise that 2015’s international hit “Terminator Genisys” would see some new home video releases as time progressed. And wouldn’t you know it, two years removed from its theatrical release, new versions of the fifth film of our favorite science-fiction film franchise has emerged on home video retail shelves across the world. So let’s take a look at these new releases, shall we?
As Terminator fans around the world anticipate the theatrical re-release of “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” this summer with a brand new 3D conversion, Studiocanal is already prepping for its home video release. And apparently, fans won’t have to be waiting long to add the newest rendition of this science fiction classic to their home video library!
