Re: THE THING: 2-Disc Collector's Edition -9/20/16

The only question I have is why was Scream given an interpositive scan of the film from Universal in the States but Arrow got a scan from the negative?

Anyways, I'm happy with Scream's version so I'll skip the Arrow release.

their twitter confirmed itll be Region B locked. The US Scream Factory was a 2k scan of the interpositive, the Arrow UK release is a 4k scan of the negative.

I am guessing it will depend on your tv setup as to how much the difference is

Re: THE THING: 2-Disc Collector's Edition -9/20/16

Tried several times yesterday to order the Thing Steelbook from the Arrow site.

I couldn't remember my password so I had to get emailed a new one. Took several hours for the email to get to me and by the time it did- SOLD OUT.

Amazon, Zavvi, Arrow...all sold out. I'm a fan of the original key art, so I was really coveting that steelbook. The Digipak LE is just a whole lot of junk to me. Looks like I'll be waiting for the plain ole vanilla standard edition now.

I still haven't cracked open my SF edition, but I have little doubt a 4K transfer from the Oneg is going to best it handily.

The Steelbook is still available.

Universal's U.K. branch has given Arrow a lot more leeway in regards to their releases (such as creating brand new masters) whereas Universal's U.S. branch doesn't allow Shout Factory to do shit.
