With a heavy heart we are saddened to report that the Universal Studios, Orlando Florida attraction T2 3-D: Battle Across Time will close its doors for good this October 2017.
Is your collectible shelf ready for an 18 inch unstoppable killing machine from the future, reprogrammed to protect the future? Well NECA Toys has officially released their 18 inch, quarter scale T-800 Model 101 from Terminator2: Judgment Day 3D and boy is it a beauty!
Hot on the heels of Studiocanal announcing the United Kindom will get a full week of Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D in cinemas, Distrib Films US has just announced that T2 in 3D will play for another week in the United States… in select theaters!
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.
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.
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?
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.
“I know now why you cry. But it is something I could never do.” When the T-800 Model 101 said those heartbreaking words to young John Connor before he sacrificed his life for the sake of humanity in Terminator 2: Judgment Day”, it brought many viewers to tears. This poignant moment clearly defined the difference between humans and machines, and why humanity must be preserved.
With only eight days left until the theatrical re-release of Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D, critics have been posting reviews for the blockbuster science fiction sequel that has been recently remastered and converted into 3D. But who cares what the critics say, when we can hear what the T-1000 himself, Robert Patrick, feels about it!
