Any word on these early Tom Hanks titles getting an upgrade?

After watching The Burbs on TV today I realized virtually none of Tom Hanks early hits have been given the Special Edition treatment, the titles in order I'd love to see upgraded:

1. Big - Love this movie but have never bought it hoping for a SE, I'd love to see Hanks give commentary to this one.

2. The Burbs

3. Turner & Hooch

I was going to add Splash, but just discovered that they released a SE which somehow I missed, how is the disk?

No S.E. yet but the version out now is decent enough in anamorphic widescreen/full screen.

I'm very happy with the Splash SE. Check out this review.

Weird. I posted in this thread last night but it's disappeared.

I'll say again, I'd be very happy to see an SE of Big come along.

I'm very surprised that FOX has not released an SE of BIG yet. I bet this title would make a lot of money if an SE were available. On that note, I too am waiting for some early Tom Hanks films to be released as SE. Tom is one of my favorite actors working today.

"Big" is the film that catapulted Hanks to the top of Hollywood as one of it's elite actors, and he has stayed ever since. He was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor, for crying out loud! That film absolutely deserves an SE.

SE or not, I'd just like to see Mazes and Monsters make it to disc. Although the twin towers thing is probably a little too touchy of a subject still.

I'm all for an update of The Burbs. One of the best comedies of all time IMO

I'd love a Burbs commentary with Dern, Dante, Feldman, Duccomun..etc.

I agree completely. I think this is one of the most underrated movies I can think of. It's hilarious.

I doubt that we'll see an upgrade of Turner and Hooch anytime soon; it hasn't been out all that long in it's barebones state. I'd love to see an SE of Big as well!

Sort of upgrades in several of Tom Hanks early works:

Steve Martin & Tom Hanks Comedy Collections in February

Universal Studios Home Video have announced the Region 1 DVD release of two remastered comedy collections on 13th February 2007. Priced at $19.98 SRP each are:

Tom Hanks: Comedy Favorites Collection - This two-disc set (2xDVD9) features The Money Pit on one disc and Dragnet (1987) and The ‘Burbs on the other. The latter two are digitally remastered while all three offer anamorphic widescreen transfers, English and French audio (DD5.1 on The Money Pit, DD2.0 Stereo on the others), English SDH subs and the original trailer. The Money Pit also boasts a making-of featurette, whilst The ‘Burbs offers an alternate ending.
