Predator: Ultimate Hunter Edition -- June 29, 2010



Amazon now shows a pre-order for a new edition.

According to early product info: Includes Movie Money Ticket Good For Up to $7.50 off Selected Film. The ultimate hunter meets the ultimate adversary... in the ultimate Collector's Edition DVD!

Arnold Schwarzenegger wages an all-out war against an unseen enemy, a force more powerful and deadly than any on Earth - because the Predator is not of this Earth.

Now, you can explore the depths of the Predator jungle with this all-new 2-disc set packed with over 5 hours of out-of-this-world extras, including an in-depth documentary, director's commentary, never-before-seen bonus footage, revealing featurettes and more.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
