Very nice to have confirmation of our Exclusive report that James Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment will receive a production credit on the “digitally restored” Terminator 2: 3D.
The newly restored, 3D version of James Cameron’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day will have its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival this year as part of the Berlinale Classics lineup.
The 3D conversion of Cameron’s 1991 action blockbuster was carried out by the director’s Lightstorm Entertainment shingle together with DMG Entertainment and distributor StudioCanal, which will handle the rerelease of the film. The move follows the successful 3D restoration and rerelease of Cameron’s Titanic in 2012, which grossed an additional $200 million in its 3D version.
“Famous for its one-liners, Terminator 2: Judgment Day set a new bar for special effects and became a cult film. We’re very pleased to be celebrating the release of the new 3D version of the classic here in Berlin,” said festival programmer Rainer Rother.

All the restoration work was personally supervised by director James Cameron and his team.
