Easily one of the definitive action films of all time, Terminator 2: Judgment Day solidified James Cameron's legacy as one of the seminal action directors in the history of Hollywood, in addition to helping Arnold Schwarzenegger become one of the most sought-after actors in the '90s. The film will be arriving soon on 4K Blu-ray and, along with it, one of the coolest movie collectibles we've seen, with a replica of an EndoArm. Catch a glimpse of the collectible in the video above.
"Terminator 2: Judgment Day shattered the definition of action-filmmaking to become one of the most celebrated sequels of all time. Even in an age of anything-is-possible digital blockbuster filmmaking – with onscreen action often entirely fabricated and 'unreal' – T2 remains a touchstone for both filmmakers and movie fans on the use of visual effects, fusing high-tech thrills with an emotional and compelling story."
In addition to coming with the incredibly cool collectible, the 4K Blu-ray itself will also be packed with special features. The supplemental features are as follows:
- T2: Reprogramming the Terminator - 55-minute Documentary Including Exclusive Interview with Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Cameron, Edward Furlong and More
- 2 Feature Commentaries including 23 members of the cast and crew, including director James Cameron and co-author William Wisher
- The Making of T2 - 30-Minute Featurette
- Seamless Branching to View 3 Different Versions of the Movie
- 2 Deleted Scenes with Audio Commentary
Both the standard edition and limited collector's edition of the Blu-ray will be available on October 3.
Between the trends leaning towards digital downloads of feature films and the variety of streaming services like Netflix and Hulu making movie viewing easy, many movie fans are straying away from purchasing physical media. One of the recent strategies in trying to entice buyers to purchase films is by offering steelbooks through exclusive retailers that feature variant artwork that's only available with a physical purchase.
Distributors also have been including special features that are only available through physical copies of films, hoping that being able to go behind the scenes of various productions will be enough to entice consumers.
