The R4 version is pretty good aparently. With all the re-releases, I'm hoping for an SE as well.

yep, since the original release date was in 1998, you would think they would have come up with a better release by now.

they are still waiting for the "frickin laser beams" for an SE... ODDs: I'd give it 50:1 against.

I would wager 10:1.

Personally I bet there will be one in the next two or three years, but it can be had cheap used - been out forever.

Maybe they'll do a Nic Cage/Jerry Bruckheimer DVD redo when National Treasure hits DVD to capitilize on that connection. If it doesn't happen around then, I wouldn't expect it to happen anytime soon.

With Blu Ray and HD-DVD on the near horizon, I suspect studios will try and pump out second versions of every standard DVD movie that's left to do so. I would guess Con Air will happen this year. Vista needs to re-release Crimson Tide while they are at it.

Yeah and add Enemy of the State to that list. They could market them together - can't see a better time than with the National Treasure DVD release.

Or I suppose Tony Scott's next - Domino. Not sure which studio it's for though...

Agreed. Now is the time to cash in if it's going to be done.....

Would've been nice last year Disney... I will probably get all three since they're priced reasonably.

Crimson Tide was pictured in the Blu-Ray displays....think it'll be out this yr?

Cool. The Enemy of the State SE will now only be officially delayed an entire year.

I remember reading it was coming out in May of '05.

The original aspect ration was 2.35:1 and BVHE is re-releasing it in 1.85:1? Even though the re-release is an anamorphic transfer, if the aspect ratio currently stated by dvdactive.com is correct then I'm not going to bother with this new release.

Same here... I'll just hope the inevitable BR release is correct.

Would love both theatrical and extended cuts, but all indications point to no. Not surprising.
