Any info on 'They Live'?

One of my favorite 80's movies, They Live, will be re-released on 9/23, replacing the rare and expensive first print. Anyone find any info on any new special features, etc? DeepDiscountDVD.com has got the pre-order for only $9.35 shipped, so I'm sadly thinking bare bones. But hey, look at the Killer Klowns disc!

It's really a shame, though, that they couldn't have included the commentary by John Carpenter and Roddy Piper from the Region 2 disc, but hey, at least it's cheap.

Universal don't have the rights. The comm was recordedby German group Kinowelt for their SE, and it was licensed out to the UK's Momentum.

It is sad, but at least the region one will have the correct aspect ratio. The r2's are a little cropped on the sides - I'm sure it's not intentional, given Carpenter's use of the 2.39:1 frame.

Wow, wish I had known. I would have sold mine and bought the new one. I'm not doing a very good job of keeping on top of this stuff anymore.

Go region free and get the SE of it. It includes commentary and other great features. Same with Carptner's 'Prince of Darkness' (which I just got today).

Fast shipping and decent prices.

I was holding out for the r1, but I suppose I will import the R2 for the commentary.
