It seems that Arnie intends to make good on his promise according to THR. He is, in fact, coming back.
James Cameron made the announcement today that he would be partnering with Studio-Canal, DMG and SterioD to re-release Terminator 2 in 3D. Not only is this very shocking news, but it seems that this conversion has been in the works for some time, as Cameron stated that it would be released in 2016.
In the interview, Cameron stated that: “Next year marks the 25th anniversary of Terminator 2 and that seemed like the perfect time to bring it back but this time in an all-new 3D version”.
It is understood that the primary purpose of this release, is to properly introduce the film to the Chinese Markets, as evidenced by the partnership with DMG. The thing to keep in mind, is that while the Terminator Franchise is popular in China, T2 has never had a theatrical release.
Personally, I am not a fan of 3D, nor conversions. There are rare exceptions to this rule, but for the most part, this sort of news does not excite me. With that being said, I am excited to have the opportunity to see one of the greatest action films of all time on the big screen, even if I do have to wear glasses over the glasses that I already wear.
