The Establishing Shot Craig Grobler says James Cameron's Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D gets a UK release date! Special previews event & a new UK trailer - UPCOMING RELEASEJames 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: Judgment Day 3D


Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D will have preview screenings on 29 August and in UK cinemas nationwide from 1 September 2017. Tickets can be booked at We also have a new Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D trailer below.

    The Establishing Shot: TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY 3D 60' TRAILER - 29 AUG 1 SEP 2017      

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.

Adam Farina, managing director at Fixer International and promotions and partnership director for Showmasters events said: "The fact that Terminator 2: Judgment day will be back in cinemas on 29th of August is every fans dream. To think that we got some of the best of those fans together at London Film & Comic Con and had them remember the film and vote on what scene was their favourite just adds to the joy and excitement of re-experiencing this movie in 4K and 3D! As this is my favourite movie - I know I'm looking forward to it!"
