Is anyone holding off for a better release of Terminator 3?

I picked up the DVD today only because it was $12.99, but I'm not opening it just yet in hopes of news of a better version.

Does it look hopeful, or is it too soon to tell?

Best Buy has it in their ad this week for $12.99. I matched it at Wal*Mart.

That's another reason I'm suspicious that a better release is around the corner.

I picked up a used copy shortly after release for $10. If a more deluxe version comes along I may be tempted but the movie was such a rehash I wouldn't pay top dollar.

terminator 3:SE has been confirmed by mostow AFAIK and he mentioned an ultimate edition as well allready. when will they learn *sigh*
trying to find the article - edit: it's in the upcoming re-releases list thread. sadly even many more extras with "really specific, cool, nuts and bolts stuff." from the cast won't make this a good movie for me just my 2c
Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines (SE)
”Empire Online talked to director Mostow who says there will be a series of progressively more impressive DVD releases before a final Ultimate Edition. "To make it a truly first-class DVD, with the levels of complexity that are on the T2 Ultimate Edition, takes a long time. You can't get it ready in the few months we have before [the first DVD release] has to be done." Mostow has really put the effort in, drafting key members of the T3 production to talk about elements of production not usually touched upon, "really specific, cool, nuts and bolts stuff." The director is also squeezing in a number of interesting featurettes explaining why, among other things, all the Terminators look and sound like a certain Austrian bodybuilder.” Are we talking about multiple re-releases here? Hopefully we’ll find out before the first release in December.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's a long wait, I mean, lets not confuse Warner Home Video with Artisan.

Where did you get that information? Especially with an Ultimate title used primarily by Artisan

That movie was the bomb! Though not as good as the first two. Yes, I'm waiting for a better release.

Nah just bought the current release. I've given up on buying re-releases, unless the original release was horrible.

Even if there is a re-release (of which I have no idea), it usually takes a lot longer than expected. Like Panic Room or Blackhawk Down. The disc out now is pretty good too. and remember, this is a WB disc and not Artisan which does the multiple T2 releases

Here is what it says in the re-release thread above:

So, I'm thinking I'll just take this current one back now.

LOL!

This is out of control! I understand the whole "you don't have to buy it" point, but these studios are deliberately releasing these DVDs knowing absolutely for certain a second release will follow it in less than a year! I have so much respect for New Line now that it's not even funny, I think they've release the versions of their films the way everyone else should. Let us know and we'll decide which to purchase. People may say that's not good business, but good business is also honesty, trust and satisfaction.

If this was a good movie like the first 2 then I'd consider buying it again. But it was okay and I don't think its worth a double dip.

What they should of done, is got it right the first time, I would of been happy to wait for a better release, its all about greed.

Maybe the alledged framing issue will be addressed with the next version.

I just picked up a copy for $7.50 (pre-owned) but I don't have the first 2 on DVD, I'm hoping they release some kind of box set with all three movies in it along with a special features disc.

I bought it on release day, and i'm happy with the current release. Quite frankly, i havent even watched any of the features except for part of the commentary. Good movie, but unless a new version comes out with significant improvements, i'll be happy with the current one. And like was said before, it's Warner, so i doubt a new release will come for awhile.

I don't think this is possible...

better, DVD? I don't know maybe it's me but they're are plenty of DVDs that need redone, this thing is quite loaded, IMO, if you're holding off, I say don't, go ahead and buy the DVD it's very good

I picked it up for $12.99 today. I don't think I'll splurge for another release when it happens, I didn't enjoy the movie that much. Who knows...

Warner Bros. isn't known for re-releasing titles that already have a 2-disc special edition. If there is a new disc coming, it's going to be awhile before it's released.

I bought the first one and will be satisfied with that - no double dipping on this movie for me. For the most part I only watch all of those extras one time anyway, so I can't see much sense in buying something AGAIN just for some extras which will only get watched one time.
