Movies that you suspect we'll get double dipped on

My first easy guess of course would be Babel. Though it may not be popular here on the board, I was hoping that Waist Deep would get double dipped but not sure it would.

Casino Royale will almost certainly get a double dip, even though it hasn't even been released yet. After reading the press release and seeing how paltry the special features are, I think we will see a new DVD when the next Bond film is released in theatres.

Some on here have said The Departed is destined for a double-dip, on account of the fact there is no commentary track from Scorsese, and it seemed rushed out just ahead of the Oscars.

Pretty much anything released by Sony will be double dipped if/when a sequel comes out. Example: Spider-Man 2.5, designed to coincide with the release of SM 3.

I agree that I foresee Casino Royale as a double dip which is one reason that I may rent first and buy later. Unless a steelbook edition comes out of course similar to the Departed. I'm guessing that those of us that bought a steelbook version of Departed would still not give that up if we get double dipped again on that title.

Flags of Our Fathers has "rental disc" practically written all over it. Zero extras, not even the trailer. I'm guessing a big ass box set with Letters from Iwo Jima.

The Abyss
Misery
Last of the Mohicans (maybe)


I heard they were coming to BD, so they will probably release 2 discs sets of those too..

I'm still waiting on two-disc sets for X-Men III and Fantastic Four from Fox. I expect the latter will show up when Rise of the Silver Surfer hits theatres.

As I've found out over the past couple years, anything and everything can or will be double dipped in the future. Nothing surprises me anymore.

I really don't see the departed will be released again anytime soon. Scorsese movies rarely get multiple releases.

That was the first thing to come to my mind. I got that as a free rental and still felt ripped off when I saw what was on it. I can only imagine how upset people were that spent $20 and got nothing.

Kill Bill is an obvious double dip candidate too. I'm actually a bit surprised it hasn't already been done. Not only do they have minimal extras, but it's two movies, it seems obvious to at least double dip them into one package.

Probably still rights issues between miramax and the weinstien company (especially if they're gonna release the full color version in the states.

if they re-release waist deep. PLEASE make an alternate ending.
didn't x3 get a 2-disc edition?
look out for fantastic 4. it was downgraded. they changed the cover art. there is no longer a DTS track on it, or many of the original extras

I think they've been released by different studios.

Don't forget Dirty Dancing! In fact, I read that Lionsgate is indeed releasing a 20th anniversary edition in March. I think this is a triple or quadruple dip for this movie.

jeepers...dirty dancing...AGAIN!? Is that movie really worth the quadruple dip? I guess there's enuff suckers to buy this. At the rate it's going, almost EVERY movie is being double dipped cuz studios know people will buy.

X-Men: The Last Stand is an easy call since a 2-disc set was released outside of the US.

The Da Vinca Code had an extended edition outside of America as well. So I'd expect to see that around the time Angels & Demons comes out. Maybe with Ron Howard commentary.

Casino Royale looks likely. The upcoming disc looks pretty weak in terms of extras. It'll also be the first Bond movie without a commentary!

Warner titles are a bit hard to tell. Certainly their newer releases have been lacking commentaries, but the studio rarely double dips unless it's warranted or it's a new celebratory box set like the Superman Ultimate Collector's Edition and the Matrix set.

I think the Harry Potter Movies will get a few more releases. 300 will be a double dip I am sure.
