UK THEATRICAL RELEASE DATE CONFIRMED AS AUGUST 25th 2017 FOR TERMINATOR 2: JUDGEMENT DAY 3D

TERMINATOR 2: JUDGEMENT DAY 3D

STUDIOCANAL and DMG ENTERTAINMENT are pleased to announce the UK theatrical release date for James Cameron’s TERMINATOR 2: JUDGEMENT DAY 3D as AUGUST 25th 2017.
STUDIOCANAL will be releasing in the UK, France, Germany, Australia and New Zealand, and Distrib Films will be releasing in the US.
Synopsis:
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…
James Cameron’s epic action, sci-fi masterpiece starring Schwarzenegger in his most iconic role, has been converted in immersive 3D by Cameron himself. First hitting our screens in 1991 with groundbreaking special effects, the 3D version will take the seminal blockbuster to the next level of effects and into the 21st century for the next generation of fans.
About the restoration:
The project was initiated by Lightstorm (lei), James Cameron’s production company, DMG Entertainment and STUDIOCANAL. James Cameron's team oversaw this 3D conversion from start to finish. This highly experienced and award-winning team had already supervised Titanic's 3D conversion and is currently working on the Avatar sequels.
The original 35mm negative was scanned and then restored in 4k at Deluxe L.A., under the supervision of Geoff Burdick, Lightstorm. The film was calibrated in 4k by Skip, James Cameron’s colorist, at Technicolor Hollywood, with a selection of the best 35mm prints from the film's first release. The film was then converted into 3D by Stereo D (Star Wars, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jurassic world).
This work lasted almost a year and was monitored daily by Lightstorm's teams, to produce a high-end 3D version at the level of the latest 3D releases from U.S. Studios. The 3D version then benefited from a calibration and a specific finish at Technicolor Hollywood, still under the supervision of Skip and James Cameron himself.

Video Of The Museum At The Doctor Who Experience, Cardiff


Yesterday I was lucky enough to visit the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff, Wales.  It really is an experience with the first part being an adventure you won't forget.  The guide who lead you on an adventure through time and space is always in character.  He talks to the Doctor on a large screen who is trying to get you back to your own time.  With the TARDIS materializing, a walk through a spooky forest with weeping angels and piloting the TARDIS yourself to name a few you are then treated to two floors of Doctor Who props, costumes and other treasures that appeared in the BBC show.

Unfortunately the experience is set to close with the reason being the lease on the building was temporary.  I thought it was fitting to film some of the museum and post it on YouTube for you to see how good the museum is before the doors close forever.

PETER PARKER: THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN – The New Ongoing Series Debuting This June!

PETER PARKER: THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN

PETER PARKER: THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN – The 
New Ongoing Series Debuting This June!
Zdarsky & Kubert Bring Peter Parker Back to NYC!

This summer, the one-and-only Spider-Man returns to his friendly neighborhood! Today, Marvel is pleased to announce PETER PARKER: THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN, the new ongoing series from superstar writer Chip Zdarsky (Star-Lord, Howard the Duck) and legendary artist Adam Kubert (Avengers, X-Men)! A companion to the best-selling Amazing Spider-Man series, these two blockbuster creators are taking Peter Parker back-to-basics in a new series bursting at the seams with heart, humor and over-the-top action!

“With [Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man] we’re using the same Spider-Man continuity, but shifting the spotlight back to his NYC environment and supporting cast,” says series writer Chip Zdarsky speaking with Entertainment Weekly. “But even though we’re pushing to make it a more personal book, we’re still going to have big adventures with ramifications that’ll be felt in other books. If I had a true mission statement for the book it would be: ‘Have fun, have heart, have stakes.’”

He’s a webslinging, wallcrawling wonder. He’s the world’s greatest super hero. He’s the unluckiest guy on the planet. He’s Spider-Man! Following his globetrotting adventures, it’s big heroics in the Big Apple as Peter Parker returns to the city that never sleeps! Be there as he swings between giant skyscrapers, squares off against his iconic rogues gallery and still manages to be late for that date he had planned!

Fans can swing into action this June when Zdarsky and Kubert bring you PETER PARKER: THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #1 – available wherever comics are sold. Can’t wait that long? Don’t’ miss your first taste of this highly anticipated series on Free Comic Book Day (May 6th) with a special 10-page story from Chip Zdarsky and Paulo Siqueira!
