Terminator 2: Judgment Day

The unstoppable 'T2' is coming back to high-def, with Lionsgate unveiling two new editions of the sci-fi classic for Blu-ray release in mid-May.

Released in late 2006 on Blu-ray in a relatively bare-bones edition, as well as numerous prior DVD and video incarnations, Lionsgate will repackage the James Cameron epic yet again on May 19.

Featuring over six hours of bonus features is 'Terminator 2: Skynet Edition,' which will arrive concurrently with the 'Limited Edition Terminator 2 Complete Collector's Set,' a seven-disc set which will bundle the Blu-ray 'Skynet Edition' with the previous 'Ultimate Edition' and 'Extreme Edition' DVD versions.

Lionsgsate has not yet unveiled the full specs for the 'Skynet' and 'Complete Collector's Set' specs, but watch for remastered video and audio, and several all-new bonus features. As always, we'll keep you posted as details are confirmed.

Suggested retail price for the 'Terminator 2: Skynet Edition' Blu-ray has been set at $29.99, with the 'Limited Edition Terminator 2 Complete Collector's Set' going for $174.99.

You'll find the latest specs for both versions of 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where they're indexed under May 19.
