There’s kind of good news if you’re one of those people who bought a 3DTV only to find that there’s nothing to play on it. Either the 3D effect sucks or it was added to a movie with the intention of recouping costs for a feature they know could very well bomb. So good 3D movies are few and far between.
James Cameron is partnering with DMG Entertainment and Studiocanal to return Terminator 2: Judgment Day to global cinemas in a digitally remastered 3D re-release. DMG and StudioCanal will work with Cameron to supervise and produce the 3D conversion using the latest technology from StereoD.
The new Terminator 2 3D is targeting a worldwide release in 2016, but a key target market is understood to be China, where the conversion will make its global premiere courtesy of DMG’s China branch, DMG Yinji, working with China Film Group.
I’m kind of digging this news because Cameron’s 3D remaster of Titanic was breathtaking in most places, it was no lazy conversion. So, what about Aliens?
