San Diego Comic-Con is right around the corner, and some of the best exclusives for the annual convention come from toy manufacturer NECA. They’ve already revealed a new four-pack of figures from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies, and now they’re bringing a new Terminator 2: Judgment Day figure to the table that fans have wanted for a long time.
NECA has already released several outstanding action figures from James Cameron’s 1992 Terminator sequel, but today they finally announced that John Connor will be joining the roster as a San Diego Comic-Con 2019 exclusive, and he even comes with the dirt bike that he uses to skip school and speed around Los Angeles.

If you never got a chance to see Terminator 2: Judgement Day in theaters, then lucky for you, $7 million has been spent on converting James Cameron‘s action movie classic to 3D for a re-release. The director was hoping it’d be in theaters last summer for the 25th anniversary, but that didn’t pan out. The 3D conversion of Titanic was well-received, and in a new trailer for Terminator 2: 3D, Cameron appears confident audiences will embrace his iconic sequel in 3D as well.
Below, watch the Terminator 2 3D trailer.

Okay so Arnold Schwarzenegger has been revisiting a lot of his old Terminator scenes lately, not just in Terminator Genisys which resets and revisits some moments from the first film in different ways, but also in a new commercial for the WWE 2k16 video game. But you’re probably thinking to yourself — “that doesn’t make any sense, why would Arnold Schwarzenegger be promoting a pro wrestling video game?”
Well as it turns out, Arnold Schwarzenegger will be reprising his role as the T-800 model Terminator in WWE 2K16. Thats right, Arnold is a playable character in the video game if you preorder (but, of course, WWF/WWE legend Hulk Hogan will not be in the game).

Walking on Hollywood Blvd. in Los Angeles, CA, you see a lot of people dressed as famous movie characters. Jack Sparrow, Spider-Man, Batman, Optimus Prime, Willy Wonka and so many more are all walking around, hoping people take a photo with them for a small fee. Most of the costumes are terrible, but some are quite good. The team at Omaze used that fact to their advantage. They dressed Arnold Schwarzenegger up as his own character from Terminator 2: Judgement Day. In costume, Arnie walked around Hollywood Blvd. relatively unnoticed, and even posed as a wax sculpture in Madame Tussauds to scare the crap out of unsuspecting tourists.
The video is a way to raise awareness for a charity contest where the winner gets a trip to the premiere of Terminator Genisys, but it’s also just plain funny. Below, watch the Terminator Hollywood prank and find out more about the contest. Read More »
Whether you’re giving or receiving, there are few things better than a gift. It feels great to get one, it feels wonderful to give one, it’s just a nice thing. Gifts in movies are kind of the same. They represent a bond between characters that can be layered with meaning. The person getting the gift can be either appreciative or disappointed, the person giving it either sincere or malicious. There’s just so many ways you can go with it.
Being as it’s the holiday season, we decided to pick out our favorite gifts in movie history. Not necessarily the best ever, just our favorites. That means not all of these are “good” gifts. Some, in fact, are awful. But it’s the act of giving them, whether in the context of an overall film or series, that makes them awesome and memorable. So, below, we count down our 25 favorite gifts in movie history. Read More »
James Cameron’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day is one of those movies we’ve all seen a million times. When it’s on television, its familiarity is like a warm blanket we can snuggle up in and can enjoy from any point. We even do other things while watching, without getting lost, because we know it so well.
In fact, we know it so well it’s probably lost some of its power. When we first saw the T-1000 emerge from flaming wreckage, or a Mack Truck fly off an overpass, they were eye-popping moments. Now, they’re very familiar. Unless, of course, they’re presented in new ways.
Maybe that means 3D, maybe that means seeing the film on the big screen the first time, or maybe it means the painstaking work of a YouTube team to recreate a scene from the film, nearly shot by shot, using Grand Theft Auto 5. Check out a Terminator 2 GTA chase below. Read More »
Few people like 3D more than James Cameron. The director of the two biggest films in the history of cinema has embraced it wholeheartedly in his new world of Avatar and recently converted the other smash hit, Titanic, for a 3D rerelease. But what about some of his other works, specifically, The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day?
At the Los Angeles Times Hero Complex Film Festival this past weekend, Cameron was asked that exact question. He played coy, said there weren’t any plans, but had a very well-thought out reason for why Terminator 2: Judgement Day, at least, might get a 3D conversion in the future. Read his Terminator 2 3D quote below. Read More »
