Craig Grobler says Terminator 2: Judgement Day 3D gets a UK release dateJames Cameron has proven himself not only to be a master of film but innovative technology to enhance storytelling as well.

     Since the 90s he has pioneered the use of 3D cinema with work like; his part on Terminator 2 3-D: Battle Across Time for the Universal Studios Theme Park Terminator 2 experience, his 2003 Titanic documentary Titanic 3D: Ghosts of the Abyss and 2005 documentary Aliens of the Deep both filmed in the 3D IMAX format UNDERWATER. This was all part of his journey to his landmark 2009 3D feature Avatar - shot using the 3D

Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)

A cyborg, identical to the one who failed to kill Sarah Connor, must now protect her teenage son, John Connor, from a more advanced cyborg.

Fusion Camera System that Cameron and DOP Vince Pace developed together under the Cameron-Pace Group banner.

     You may not be familiar with the system but some of the most advanced 3D feature films including; Life of Pi, Hugo, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, TRON: Legacy, Speed Racer were shot with the Cameron's camera system.

     They are currently working out how to bring glassless 3D to cinemas, a while back they teamed with Dolby & Philips on glassless 3D TVs and I'm pretty sure I saw one of these back in 2013 at the London Dolby Atmos Screening Room, so I would be surprised if the technology was too way off in the future. After watching the Berlinale QA session with James Cameron it would appear that glassless 3D cinemas may not be on the table for the near future.

     Back in 2012 Cameron proved that 3D conversions given sufficient passion, time and money can be stunningly flawless when he re-released Titanic 3D.

     Later this year, 26 years after it's release we can look forward to seeing the groundbreaking special effects extravaganza and film that shot James Cameron into the stratosphere, the sequel to his 1984 cult classic The Terminator - Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Fully restored in 4k and converted into 3D. Terminator 2: Judgement Day 3D

Terminator 2: Judgement Day 3D had it's world premiere at the 2017 Berlin International Film Festival last week. After the screening the Berlinale hosted a QA session with James Cameron via Facebook to discuss the decisions and process of digitally restoring Terminator 2: Judgement Day 3D, what to expect from the restored version, the single FX change made, as well as the future of 3D and the possible future of the Terminator franchise.

It has been 10 years since the events of Terminator. Sarah Connor’s ordeal is only just beginning as she struggles to protect her son John, the future leader of the human resistance against the machines, from a new Terminator, sent back in time to eliminate John Connor while he’s still a child.

Sarah and John don’t have to face this terrifying threat alone however. The human resistance have managed to send them an ally, a warrior from the future ordered to protect John Connor at any cost.

The battle for tomorrow has begun…

James Cameron’s epic action, sci-fi masterpiece starring Schwarzenegger in his most iconic role, has been converted in immersive 3D by Cameron himself. First hitting our screens in 1991 with groundbreaking special effects, the 3D version will take the seminal blockbuster to the next level of effects and into the 21st century for the next generation of fans.

The project was initiated by Lightstorm (lei), James Cameron’s production company, DMG Entertainment and STUDIOCANAL. James Cameron's team oversaw this 3D conversion from start to finish. This highly experienced and award-winning team had already supervised Titanic's 3D conversion and is currently working on the Avatar sequels. The original 35mm negative was scanned and then restored in 4k at Deluxe L.A., under the supervision of Geoff Burdick, Lightstorm. The film was calibrated in 4k by Skip, James Cameron’s colorist, at Technicolor Hollywood, with a selection of the best 35mm prints from the film's first release.

The film was then converted into 3D by Stereo D (Star Wars, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jurassic world). This work lasted almost a year and was monitored daily by Lightstorm's teams, to produce a high-end 3D version at the level of the latest 3D releases from U.S. Studios. The 3D version then benefited from a calibration and a specific finish at Technicolor Hollywood, still under the supervision of Skip and James Cameron himself.
