I'm glad I held off on buying the barebones blu ray. Please have all the extras from the 2 disc dvd!

Another re-release from Fox. Just fantastic.

The DVD extras and new cover art will probably get me to upgrade. I'm assuming there'll be some movie cash for Predators included too.

Damnit I was hoping for a US release of the Predator head set.

Sweet. Glad I held off on the current BD set.

I'm betting the PQ on this edition will be the same as the previous release. At least I hope so. I really don't want to double dip. If it's just new extras, I can probably live without it. That is, until the price drops.

I was just about to open the first one and watch it the other day. Maybe I'll hold off and try to sell it.

indeed. And all the current SE's features. And maybe some more stuff. I've held off cuz of it's lack of features on the BD. Can't say it enough but...Predator is amazing.

You sir...really typed a long sentence. And yes....I think nobody gives a fuck to the failure of AvP. Besides it...failing.

I held off buying the current edition b/c not a single review liked the picture quality. Here's hoping Fox will do right by this film.

I thought the PQ was adjudged, "the best it's going to be", given its source material...

It appears the UK version has been remastered, which likely means the US will be. Based on walmart.com's description, this will be a 2-disc set with the dvd extras and include movie cash for the upcoming film.

I'm sure there's plenty of room for improvement with a better codec.

I'm not sure there will be too much improvement given how grungy the film is to begin with. But I have to think a fresh AVC encode on a BD50 will show some benefit vs the old MPEG-2 crammed on a BD25.

Glad I didn't bite on the current one. I'll wait and see on this new one.

Hopefully a remaster will clean up some of the grainy inconsistency problems haunting the original US BD release. I'm not sure it was purposely produced in that manner either, but I could be mistaken. Some shots are magnificently clear while the very next sequence of shots are soft and heavily grainy. A close up of Carl Weathers with pock marks isn't something I want to see every day.

I'm looking forward to seeing how the initial reviews fare. Then again, I was fortunate to pick up the first release for $5 so a double dip for the extra features is easily justifiable for the right price.

Sounds like a worthy re-release. Glad I held off buying the original Blu-Ray.

Fuck YES! I've held off getting the current release in hopes of a new edition. Can't WAIT to own this on BD.
