James Cameron Says ‘Aliens’ 3D Re-Release Could Be Next

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.

    James Cameron’s priorities are painfully out of whack. Fuck making Avatar sequels, go make some well written original films instead. Fuck converting all of your films to 3D, go do blu-ray releases of The Abyss and True Lies instead. It seriously pisses me off that he continues to neglect The Abyss and True Lies.

    Aliens is visually a dark film with no shots I can imagine looking good in 3D.
    I’m perfectly fine watching it at home in peace on Blu ray!

    Theatrical re-release of Aliens would be awesome making it 3D would be stupid and would save me money since I wouldn’t go see it

    • The Drucifer

      I got to see it a few years ago on the big screen and it was glorious. 3D seems kinda…meh. What in this film screams 3D outside of the depth you could get within the hive and Hadley’s? I can’t think of any.

      • Christopher Nickerson

        Only things I can think of would be the chestburster scene and bishop getting impaled by the Queen

        • The Drucifer

          I see no artistic or entertainment value in the whole concept.

  • Necro

    I can understand ‘T2’ in 3D with the way the movie was, but ‘Aliens’? That movie was dark in a lot of the scenes so 3D would be a bad idea. Besides that there is nothing in that that screams 3D.

  • Joe Blow

    Yes! Ill be at T23d opening night and the same for Aliens 3D should that come to pass. Heres hoping. Nay sayers stay home and vlog about how Ridley Scott ruined your midlife crisis.

  • The Drucifer

    IS this a threat? Come at me bro!

  • YES!

  • Bla Blah

    Shut the fuck up, Cameron.

    It surprises me that James Cameron doesn’t read fan feedback because if he did, he’d realize there is little love for Avatar. I mean yeah, it was an ok movie back in the day, but it’s been so long that people have just lost interest. Movies have been rebooted in less time he’s taken to get a sequel out. Then there are the 3D post conversions he seems intent on doing, much like Lucas did with Star Wars. This isn’t the same Cameron I respected through the 80s/90s, he seems to be so out of touch with modern cinema.

    • SlimPickins420

      yeah, should totally base choices upon the loudest voices on the internets, not ticket sales and bluray sales of the silent majority… sooo guess that means Cameron should make a Pepe the frog movie next.

      • GunsOfNavarone

        Yawn, pepe the frog…. yeah, something new to change your avatar to I guess.

  • Bluebolt

    I’d prefer to see a remaster T2 and Aliens in 2D personally but will probably see T2 in 3D just to see it on the big screen again.

  • Bloodkry

    Hey James, guess what? The 3D gimmick is dead. You should try hard on putting your ego aside and give us a great story to tell like you once did.

  • American Atheist

    Fuck James Cameron. The most overrated hack in Hollywood. I’d rather watch Michael Bay’s bullshit.
