Purchase link: Zavvi
Release date: 04/12/2017
Status: In Stock
Have Zavvi got any better with dispatching orders on time?
That's the best they could come up with for the artwork?
I've always had new releases arrive on the Saturday ahead of the Monday release date.
Pre-order time change to 12PM
Is the 2-D the same master as the Skynet edition?
No, it's a brand new remastered disc
Might pick up the remastered disc when it's cheaper, much prefer the artwork from my Skynet addition.
I will probably grab the Novamedia steelbook release and put the remastered disc Inside when price goes down.
German release gets the same artwork.
This was shared a little while ago.

Well that 3D logo front and spine kills it for me (that'll come as no surprise to any one!) and not interested in 3D anyway so think I'll just future proof myself and go for the 4K amaray.

Hmmm. If they'd included the 4K disc I might have gone for it but with this art and that price? Nah.
Surprised the scalpers have not sold this out already
i bet this will be awesome in 3D,orders in
Not sure this is getting 4K release anytime soon also some older films do not benefit either from 4K unless they do a HDR pass & colour timing re-grade which is very expensive & time consuming on catalog titles but simple on new content.
I can take an educated guess T2 CGI was originally only finished in 1920x1080 so not sure 4K will make any difference if anything it would highlight the dated low res CGI. Cameron confirmed a few weeks ago he only fixed 1 shot (digital face replacement on the Arnie stunt double jumping on the motorbike into the storm drain when he is chasing John Connor). All the other dodgy looking FX shots like the man clearly in the silver suit in the steelworks fight & dodgy optical composites remain intact as they were in 1991!
4K already up for preorder on Zavvi.
4K release coming out at the same time: Terminator 2: Judgment Day (Remastered) 4K UHD
Shame the steelbook doesn't come with the 4K UHD disc. Still I have my 4K on preorder.
A 4K or above master source does not exist so it will be an upscaled remaster for the 4K release.
A real 4K release won't be released any time soon.
However this remastered cut should be a big improvement in HD over the original release
It is a real 4K isn't it, they created one unless I'm not understanding it correctly?
Preordered but wish the 4K disc was included instead of 3D as never had a 3D TV and its 4K all the way now at a later date i may buy the 4K disc on its own and stick it inside.
The design could have been better aswell this should have been given the golden treatment and it falls short but this is the missing piece that completes my Terminator Steelbook collection.
An original 4K master will never be equal to whatever lower resolution scanned (upscaled) to 4K resolution.
So, yes they made a 4K from a 35mm film (Upscaling) but it isn't the same as having filmed the movie with a 4k or 6,5k lens.
However it should look better (if done right)
The problem with these high res. scans is that they tend to have less details... they wash out a lot of grain to make it look cleaner and at the same time, colors, light and details take a hit from this...
Pre-ordered, if only to encourage him to hurry up and redo Abyss!!!!
Shame HMV didn't get this and do one of their all-in-one Combo Steelbooks.
Remember going to see it in Leicester Square and being utterly blown away, despite the young JC being an annoying little sh1t for most of the film.
IIRC, they had a replica motorcycle in the lobby of the cinema next to a cardboard cut-out Arnie; you could hardly tell the difference
Will be going to see this in 3D on the biggest screen I can find on Judgement Day
Sold out for now.
I will always remember: I was 11 years of age when I "Attempted" to exchange my money to watch T2 on the BIG screen. Nope, it didn't happen. I ended up being pushed to watch Doc Hollywood instead. lol
