UPDATED! While they haven’t pinpointed an official release date, Terminator fans in Hungary can finally exhale in a sigh of relief. Studiocanal partner Pannonia Entertainment has officially announced that the restored 3D conversion of “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” will be released “theatrically” in the third quarter of this year (which means July, August or September 2017.)
While we we are betting on an August release, fans in Hungary will be pleased to know that they can experience T2 in 3D the way James Cameron intended: in a movie theater!
Here is their official announcement:
Terminator 2 – Judgement Day – Digitally restored 3D cinema re-release!
Arnold Schwarzenegger is back! In new, three-dimensional form, the T-800 returns to the big screen. DMG Entertainment and Studiocanal, working with James Cameron and his production company Lightstorm Entertainment, initiated the restoration and 3D conversion of Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D (USA, 1991/2017). In this all-time science-fiction classic, an android played by Arnold Schwarzenegger travels back through time to save from assassination the future leader in the human battle against the machines.
To create the new version, the original negative was scanned in 4K at Deluxe LA and then digitally processed by Technicolor Hollywood, while StereoD undertook the conversion to 3D. All the restoration work was personally supervised by director James Cameron and his team.
Pannonia Entertainment partners Studiocanal to release the new, digitally restored 3D version of the film, which won four Oscars in 1992, theatrically in Hungary.
Release date: Early Q3 2017 (TBC)
We’ll be back!
UPDATE : (April 7th) – Pannonia Entertainment has announced an official release date of August 29, 2017, the 20th Anniversary of Judgment Day.
