Is there a predator special edition?

I've heard there was one, with deleted scenes, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. What does the case look like?

There have been two releases of predator. The first was just "ok".

The second release was in DTS and cleaned up a bit. I do not remember seeing any deleted scenes.

However a 3rd rerelease (according to this thread is due out soon). 2 DVD SE to boot!

The current case looks like this

There is a Region 2/4 2-Disc Special Edition of Predator.

Whoaaa, I want that. Those extras listed look pretty interesting, non-fluff type pieces. I hope the eventual region-1 2disc SE is the same as the region2/4. That looks sweet. I have the 1-disc DTS (best buy $6!!!) and although the print is very grainy, the DTS soundtrack rocks. I hope they remaster(ed) the video.

I really recommend this set. I've owned it for some time.

How much gore do you want?

I have 2 Predator and 1 Region 4, like I said how much gore do you want.


The Predator triology never happened because Kevin Peter Hall who fit the Stan Winstons suit died of A.I.D.S.. He was a 7 foot 6 inch tall African American and the suit was made for him alone.


P.S. Just like Frankenstein Triology 1 in 1931, 2nd Bride 1935, but in 1937 Colin Clive who played Dr. Henry Frankestein died! Mr. Clive was born in 1898, he was only 39 years old, but will be remembered for a thousand years, as the man that screamed "It's Alive, It's Alive! 1931

I just bought the DTS release today, so that means that a SE announcement is probably coming soon.

The fact that a suit was made for someone who died isn't a big enough reason not to proceed with a sequel. If "Predator 2" had performed better at the box office, they would have build another suit for somebody else and they would have made "Predator 3". The suits obviously cost several thousands of dollars but that's not enough to halt an entire movie's production. The death of Kevin Peter Hall isn't enough to stop Fox from considering an "Aliens vs. Predator" movie.

If the rumored Predator vs. Alien movie gets released wouldn't it sort of be considered Predator 3 (or Alien 5 for that matter)?

On a similar note, where will the new Jason vs Freddie movie fit?

An "Aliens vs. Predator" would obviously serve as both a fifth "Alien" movie and as a third "Predator" movie at the same time. It's a crossover, so it's not specifically tied to one franchise or the other. It serves as a sequel to both. The same goes for "Freddy vs. Jason".

There's also a R2 NTSC version of the special edition available in the Japanese market. A bit on the pricey side at 4700 yen but a nice edition.
