Same here saw it in the theater but then on home video enjoyed the DC much more. I can watch both but prefer the DC. BUT I have not seen it since the good ole 5 Star DVD came out.

Re: The Abyss -- 4K UHD remaster -- News and Rumors

I'm probably partial to the theatrical version because that's the one I saw first. But, hey, I'm one of the few that thinks the theatrical version of Blade Runner is the best version, so what do I know?

I would have seriously thought about going 4K. But I guess I can put it off a bit longer.

I watched The Abyss: Special Edition on the weekend.

This release, whenever it comes out, better have both cuts.

FWIW, True Lies is now making the rounds on Cinemax for those who have it and want to watch.

True Lies is now owned by Disney. Not sure if they'd put a new release out even if Cameron was willing.

Cameron is a proven moneymaker.
Disney will do whatever he wants done.

Can't Disney do whatever they want if they own it, with or without Cameron's permission or does Cameron like own rights that Disney can't touch?

I think Cameron owns the rights through his company Lightstorm Entertainment.

He would just need Disney to distribute it.

See post 219 above.

Even in the cases where Cameron doesn't own the movie outright, he allegedly has it in his contract that he must personally approve new video masters.

The Abyss has had a Blu-ray transfer awaiting his review since at least 2010. Note that he didn't say he actually planned to review it, just that it's waiting.

Also, as noted in my post that was deleted in the merge of these threads for some reason, Cameron's own comment is from November 2018, not March of this year. Nothing new at all here (yet).
