The T-800 Is Back in Poster for 'Terminator 2' 3D Rerelease

The T-800 Is Back in Poster for 'Terminator 2' 3D Rerelease

The Arnold Schwarzenegger film is returning to theaters in 2017.

He’s back.

The upcoming 3D rerelease of Terminator 2: Judgment Day has debuted its first poster — and it’s got a pretty good tagline:

August 29th 1997: The day Skynet first became self aware.

August 29th 2016: the day you first saw the brand new poster for Terminator 2 in 3D. Coming to theaters in 2017.

The best part about this? There’s no acknowledgement of the post-T:2 sequels that kept kicking judgment day down the road — or turning Skynet into Apple OS.

Director James Cameron’s T2 celebrated it’s 25th anniversary over the summer, and his 3D conversion mirrors his strategy for Titanic 3D, which earned $343 worldwide when it was rereleased in 2012. 

T2 was an instant classic when it was released in 1991, earning four Oscars and topping the box office for the year with $204.8 million in North America and another $315 million around the world.

Cameron departed the franchise after T2, but Arnold Schwarzenegger returned as the T-800 in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003), skipped Terminator: Salvation (2009) and again reprised the role in last year’s Terminator: Genisys. But none those followups recreated the magic of Cameron’s first two, with Genisys‘ soft returns and tepid reaction from fans quashing plans for a followup.

The T2 rerelease is set for 2017.
