    The Running Man: Special Edition is on the way from Artisan in the first quarter of 2004. It will include a brand new anamorphic widescreen transfer and Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 6.1 soundtracks.

    It'll be nice to get rid of yet another non-anamorphic transfer.

    I just bought the old disc not even a month ago for 10 bucks. I'm not giving anymore of my money to Artisan.

    I'm taking bets now for THE PUNISHER: ULTIMATE EDITION next year before the new film comes out.[​IMG]

    Are you ready for pain?
    Are you ready for suffering?
    Then you are ready for Captain Freedoms workout!

    I will get it, although I just got the old release for like $6, so its not that big of a loss for me

    Any extras? As per it being a "Special Edition". A commentary would be nice. And deleted scenes, if there are any.

    If this turns out to be true, then all the times I put the DVD back, praying for a SE, will not have been in vein [​IMG]

    "Well I hope you leave enough room for my fist because I am going to ram it into your stomach and break your spine!"

    This movie has too many of my favorite Arnold moments. And not to mention Jesse Ventura as captain freedom. The workout video alone makes me laugh a lot.

    Definitely from Arnold's golden phase. I hadn't though about picking it up until now, but this might be fun to get.

    Definitely getting this one. I'm actually amazed at how far ahead of it's time the subject matter of the film is. Consider the current state of real-tv. If they do a commentary, it would be interesting to hear their (the film-makers and actors) thoughts on the matter.

    As for Red Heat, I would also like an SE for this too.....let's hope that they work on that soon.

    Wow, so he's really running. Cool.[​IMG]

    For those of you who don't know it, Arnie really is a VERY smart guy when it comes to politics and social issues, especially in regards to kids. He had the cover story in Esquire magazine a few months ago, and the article really sold me on him.

    I hope this will include the John Parr music video "Running Away With You"...It featured footage of the singer integrated with clips from the movie.

    It's a double dip I won't mind.

    Sincerely,
