With the release of the 3D conversion of Terminator 2: Judgement Day just around the corner at the end of August, James Cameron took part in a Facebook Live interview on the Terminator 2 page to promote the film.
Fielding an early question about the possibility of a 3D treatment of The Terminator and True Lies, Cameron revealed that pending a good reception to Terminator 2’s 3D release that Aliens would next on the agenda!
“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.
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!”
In addition to the upcoming Terminator 2 3D, Cameron also re-released Titanic in 2012 with a 3D treatment and in 4K resolution. While not a Cameron project, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s first Predator also received a 3D re-release back in 2013.
Later on in the interview, Cameron was asked about his thoughts on Sir Ridley Scott’s recent Alien: Covenant and the direction that Ridley was taking the lore in.
“I thought that Alien: Covenant was a great ride. It was beautiful. I love Ridley’s films and I love his film making , I love the beauty of the photography, I love the visceral sense that you’re there, that you’re present.
It’s not a film that I would have made. I don’t like films where you invest in a character and they get destroyed at the end. I would not have made that film. I can’t comment on where Ridley is going with it but I think he is obviously trying to create a greater universe around it and more backstory with the Engineers and so on. I’ll show up for the next one, absolutely.”
