I saw a few of these at some local B&Ms and its the 1 disc version of Mummy (not the 2 disc Ultimate Edition) packaged with Mummy Returns. Also, the Mummy was Full Frame, though I'm unsure if the Mummy Returns was (I would hazard a guess that it was, however).

ok well i went out and bought it at bestbuy for $27 bucks.. you can watch full version or choose widescreen. they are the collectors edition on both. also for a limited time only it comes with a 3rd dvd the behind scenes of the scorpin king movie. the movie is very clear i check my friends copy of the ultimate edition and the box set version has better picture quality and sound. also there is a few extras on the box set... once i watch them both and check it out 100% i will post again.. with more info...

I do not own either movie - yet. My choices seem to be:

Option #1:
Buy "Mummy: The Ultimate Edition" (2 Disc set)
Buy "Mummy Returns: Collector's Edition (Widescreen)" (1 Disc)
Total: 3 Discs

Option #2:
Buy "Mummy Collection - Mummy / Mummy Returns (Widescreen)"
Total: 2 Discs

Since I do not care for Full Screen at all, my main concern is: What do I lose when I go with option #2, which is cheaper? Thanks.

I reviewed the Mummy Ultimate Edition, and in the extras section, I mention what's added and lost from the CE - besides the extras, the UE also has a DTS track, which the CE lacks.

Why not? That's what I did a few months ago. I picked up the Ultimate Edition on Ebay (the ones at my local Wal Mart all had broken cases) back in November, and Mummy Returns CE from Circuit City when it came out.

I went with Option 1, I feel this is best options for wanting to own the best versions of each of the movies. I was holding out for a Ultimate Edition of Mummy Returns, for DTS Track, but since that seems unlikely, I had the Mummy Returns Widesreen Collector's Edition as an enrollment selection.

While I'm not sure what Robert's talking about either, I went with option #1 and scored both of them tonight from a single eBay-tailer for $30 shipped! Not too bad, methinks.

Thanks for the help, guys.

WWF super celeb "The Rock" (Dwayne Johnson) brings his bone-crushing charisma to the title role of The Scorpion King (in theaters April 19). This highly anticipated spinoff of The Mummy series delivers another round of non-stop action and ancient-world thrills, and you can get a sneak peek with our behind-the-scenes DVD.

(available while supplies last) loaded with a tomb's worth of treasures.
Some of the special features include:
Behind-the-scenes footage from The Scorpion King
Making of Godsmack's "I Stand Alone" music video (check out the whole soundtrack)
A conversation with The Rock
A photographic montage
The Scorpion King theatrical trailer
Previews of hot movies coming soon to theaters
Making of Spy Game footage



Don't drag your feet in the sand quantities are limited.

I noticed a lot of pixelation on The Mummy. More so than any other movie. Anyone else?? The black areas are not a problem.
But sometimes the walls seem to be crawling with pixels, especially during darker scenes. The daylight scenes are very clean.
