“TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY 3D” 2016 : What we know so far!

Last December, ever since 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, there has been surprisingly very little information released about it. Originally stated to be purposely timed with the film’s 25th Anniversary (a benchmark that has now passed), fans have been left scratching their heads wondering what the future will hold for T2 in 3D. Will it only be theatrically released in China? Will this version contain restored footage like the Special Edition? Will there be “Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D” merchandise? Well we have some answers! We gathered all the details made available so far, so Terminator fans can have the most accurate information to date!

_____

WHEN AND WHERE WILL “TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY 3D” FIRST BE RELEASED?

ANSWER : OCTOBER 2016, CHINA
While the exact release date has not been solidified, the 3D conversion of T2 will open in Chinese theaters this October 2016!  It will also mark the very first time that “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” will be shown theatrically in that country (the original 1991 cut never made it to theaters in China.)

WILL “TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY 3D” BE RELEASED IN OTHER COUNTRIES?

“T2 3D will be released to audiences worldwide sometime in 2016, starting in China”

_____

WILL “TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY 3D” BE THE THEATRICAL CUT OR THE LONGER, SPECIAL EDITION CUT?

ANSWER: UNKNOWN – EVIDENCE POINTS TO THEATRICAL CUT
While the running time data still has yet to be officially confirmed by James Cameron and DMG, the data on the below Studiocanal upcoming release sheet does indeed suggest that StudioCanal expects the running time to be 137 minutes long which will match the original theatrical release running time. So it’s not looking good for fans hoping for the longer T2 Special Edition cut.
