Because a healthy fear of Skynet is more important than ever these days, Terminator 2: Judgment Day is returning to the big screen this Friday for the first time in 3-D.
AMC locations are exclusively hosting the presentation, which was upgraded to 4K and converted into immersive 3-D by director James Cameron himself.
More than a quarter-century ago (1991, to be exact), T2’s revolutionary special effects and thrilling action sequences combined to captivate moviegoers and raise the bar for sci-fi adventure. The film took home four Academy Awards: sound, sound effects editing, visual effects and makeup.
Set 10 years after the events of The Terminator, Sarah Connor struggles again to protect her son John, the future leader of the desperate human revolt against the machines, from a new Terminator unit sent back in time to crush resistance before it begins. But the Connors have an ally: a warrior from the future with a familiar but unexpected face, who has been ordered to protect John at any cost.
“The 4K 3D restoration and conversion of the film looks stunning, and after 26 years the film hasn’t aged one little bit,” said François Scippa-Kohn, president and partner at Distrib Films US, in a press release.
Alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in his most iconic role, Terminator 2: Judgment Day also stars Edward Furlong, Linda Hamilton, Robert Patrick, Earl Boen and Joe Morton. The film is rated R.
