Twenty-six years ago, The Terminator returned to cinema screens in a groundbreaking epic that raised the bar for all cinematic blockbusters to follow. Terminator 2: Judgement Day continued the sci-fi saga started in 1984, with Sarah Conner and her son, John, on the run from an indestructible killing machine sent from the future to assassinate them.
An explosive experience that left cinema forever changed, the movie, helmed by James Cameron, has been given a suitably futuristic digital makeover rendering it in full 3D. Echoing the original movie’s release, the 3D overhaul will offer cinemagoers another groundbreaking experience the likes of which has come to be expected from the award-winning director.
Also travelling through time is the original Terminator 2: Judgement Day score, composed by Brad Fiedel and containing the iconic theme tune which continues to send chills down the spine. Originally released on CD and cassette, and reaching No.70 on the Billboard album charts – no small feat for a movie soundtrack – the score now makes its debut on vinyl as a two-disc set .
Complementing songs that featured in the movie, including classic cuts from rock icons Guns N’ Roses (‘You Could Be Mine’) and George Thorogood And The Destroyers (‘Bad To The Bone’), Fiedel’s score is a haunting piece of work fitting for a civilisation doomed to destruction in the near future at the hands of AI cyborgs that have overthrown their creators.
And we don’t mean the fictional world of Skynet and the T-800…
