It’s a rare thing in Hollywood for a sequel to come close to, or even end up being better than, the original, but James Cameron effortlessly managed that feat with 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day. The film sees Arnold Schwarzenegger return as the sinister Terminator android, but this time around his intentions are much more heroic. If you’ve been itching to watch this movie on the big screen in as immersive an experience as possible, Cameron and co. have cooked up a re-release of the movie in his new favorite medium: 3-D.

“The images feel more real in 3-D,” Cameron says in the new trailer, posted today by Entertainment Weekly. “There’s a lucidity to it, and you really feel like you’re there.” The Terminator movies’ gorgeous practical effects were lauded in their day, and they still hold up wonderfully even in the modern CGI era. And I’ll bet the 3-D version of this movie looks superb, if Cameron has anything to do with it. He’s already fiddling with glasses-free 3-D for the next batch of Avatar movies.
