In addition to a 4K Ultra HD release on home video, James Cameron’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day is also headed back into theaters as a special 3D re-release beginning on August 25 here in the States (it’ll be released in the UK on August 29).
If all goes well and Terminator 2 proves to be a moneymaker here in 2017, it may not be the only Cameron film that returns to theaters in 3D. During a Facebook live chat this week in promotion of the T2 re-release, Cameron hinted that Aliens *could* soon get the same treatment.

“We haven’t proven the business case yet so ask me again in a couple of weeks if T2 Judgement Day in 3D does well. I think the next title on my list, in terms of fan enthusiasm would probably have to be Aliens before I got to the other titles that you mentioned,” said Cameron, when asked if other films were going to be heading into a new dimension. “Aliens seems to really hold up in people’s minds and that would probably be my next one. But we’ve got to prove the business case here so people have to show up. So show up!”
If the T2 3D release makes a killing, you can expect that Aliens won’t be far behind.
