Terminator 2: Judgment Day was a transformative event for Movies In Focus. James Cameron’s epic was a powerful experience and I’m glad to have seen it on the big screen way back in the summer of 1991.
The film hits blu-ray on 4 December – and the disc features a new documentary, titled T2: Reprogramming The Terminator is included. Here’s a snippet from the doc, which features Robert Patrick, James Cameron and composer Brad Fiedel:
Here’s the synopsis for the uninitiated:
Having originally hit British screens in 1991, complete with groundbreaking special effects, this became Arnold Schwarzenegger’s (Total Recall, Predator) most iconic role to date, as well as one of the most quotable scripts of the decade, this brand-new 3D version will blast the seminal blockbuster into the 21st century and introduce it to a brand-new generation of fans.
It has been 10 years since the events of Terminator. Sarah Connor’s (Linda Hamilton The Terminator, Dante’s Peak) ordeal is only just beginning as she struggles to protect her son John (Edward Furlong American History X, Pecker), the future leader of the human resistance against the machines, from a new Terminator (Robert Patrick Walk the Line, ‘The X Files’), 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…
