Terminator 2: Judgment Day

James Cameron's science fiction masterpiece is set to arrive on both formats this fall.

StudioCanal and Lionsgate have confirmed they are prepping 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day' for Blu-ray 3D and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray with a tentative release date of October 3, although the 4K edition will now be released on October 31.

James Cameron's epic action, sci-fi masterpiece starring Schwarzenegger in his most iconic role, has been stunningly restored by Cameron himself. First hitting our screens in 1991 with ground-breaking special effects, this version will take the seminal blockbuster to the next level of effects and into the 21st century for a new generation of fans.

It has been 10 years since the events of Terminator. Sarah Connor's ordeal is only just beginning as she struggles to protect her son John, the future leader of the human resistance against the machines, from a new Terminator, sent back in time to eliminate John Connor while he's still a child.

Sarah and John don't have to face this terrifying threat alone however. The human resistance have managed to send them an ally, a warrior from the future ordered to protect John Connor at any cost.

The battle for tomorrow has begun…
