    Both The Digital Bits and DVD File have posted that Paramount has announced the Jack Ryan series box set of special editions. All four are in the set, the previous Sum of All Fears SE. The other 3 will all be remastered and feature new documentaries with new interviews with the cast, etc. Hunt will also have a commentary track. In addition, the three new SEs (but not Sum) will all have DTS audio. They'll be available seperately for $20 SRP or in a box set for $70-$80 SRP.

    OH thank god I waited. Have been patiently waiting for anamorphic versions of these for a while now. Almost gave in for the original trilogy last summer when it was only 35 for the set. So glad I waited.
    Now Paramount...hurry up with Top Gun, Face/Off, and Titanic DTS rereleases!

    Paramount should be applauded for their first DTS DVDs!

    The Hunt For Red October should sound very nice in a remastered soundtrack, too. I think I know what to get for my stepfather for his birthday.

    Ulp! I just got Patriot Games for X-mas! Almost bought HFRO and CAPD, to finish the collection but decided to wait a bit more.

    Well, at least I'll be waiting on those two now.

    I'll be getting the separate editions. No thanks on the Sum of all Fears...

    Unless there's an extra disc in that boxed set, I'll stick with the separate editions.

    And besides patting Paramount on the back for the DTS (which is FANTASTIC), there's something to be said about that pricing!!

    WAY TO GO DALLAS!! errrr....PARAMOUNT!!

    Craig,
    Unless I'm missing something I don't understand your problem with the pricing. Having a SRP of $70-80 for the set or $19.99 for each disc sold separately means that an informed consumer will probably pay only about $14-15 per dvd. Matter of fact, some of us might be able to buy it a little less than that price. So what's wrong with that selling price?

    Congratulations Paramount!

    Not only will we get these excellent films finally in 16x9 but with DTS too!! Wow! Amazingly too the price is right $19.95. Paramount count me in for the first 3 as repurchases!

    I never bought the first three due to a suspicion they would be rereleased. I'll either buy the set or the seperate releases depending how much cheaper the set is.

    That is a Repurchase for me, I hate rebuying DVD's, I'm still waiting on THE ROCK to go down in price, I'm sorry but $34.95 at BB is just to freaking much, I'll stick with my Non-Anamorphic version for now, And wassup with Armageddon Criterion, Not only its $29.95, but no anamorphic, WTH?

    I'm not sure of Sum of All Fears myself, but I'll definitely be getting the other three films.
