    Seeing as an SE of the first part is coming out in r2/4 soon, I wouldn't be surprised if newer editions of the whole series aren't underway. Good news for fans, anyway...

    I'm kinda skeptical of this "official news" of a boxed set. According to prior reports, that release isn't projected until at least Fall 2004. I doubt Paramount would provide details so early, unless it's just a mere confirmation of their intentions.

    From Box Office Guru:
    "It was a sold out main event at theaters as Freddy vs. Jason killed the competition and grossed an estimated $36.4M in its opening weekend beating industry expectations. The final big release of the summer season played in 3,014 locations and averaged a bloody $12,085. It was the sixth biggest August opening ever and the largest for the second half of the month. Freddy also represented the fifth R-rated pic to open at number one this summer."

    I bet the vaults at Paramount are being raided for F13 footage as I type this. [​IMG]

    It says "Boxed Set" I really hope it won't be just the current versions of the movies with a supplementary disc at the end, but each movie get a special edition treatment. Anyone have any ideas?

    Well, obviously the highly reqested uncut versions are the first thing anyone looking at these re-issues would want...

    I guess this news has something to do with the price drop thats happening on the original discs this week...

    Delurking for the first time in ages, I'd like to chime in here with a note to Paramount,
    If they aren't uncut, I'm not buying [​IMG] no matter how much extra material they include.

    As Will K already mentioned, It's doubtful any jaw dropping information will be spilled on September 19th, but I'll be online just in case!

    Sadly I don't hold out much hope, we all know what happend to "My Bloody Valentine" & the requested uncut release by MBV's producer John Denning (Who interestingly, found ALL the gore trims & scene extentions totalling 8-9mins!)

    It's a crying shame they won't sub-license these American mainstream horror classics in full bloodied versions & quite frankly it's a slap in the face for Friday fans who have made them an unholy cash cow for Paramount.
    This all takes me back to when Part 6 ("A lad Insane" IIRC?)was being filmed, a film journalist friend was on set & while most on the production gave the impression they were proud to work on it, several suits from Paramount came to set putting people down & ripping the F13th series to bits, very sad.

    Anyhow, worst case scenario, they'll include rough quality work print versions or worse still the MPAA cut footage, which would amount to what, mere seconds, lumped together in a supplement at the end of each film [​IMG]

    You'd think the box office takings for "Freddy Vs Jason" & the forthcoming uncut F13th SE on R2 UK dvd would make Paramount dig deep into the vaults for the definative versions....

    Well, I'm "dying" to prove you all wrong but will hold my tongue. Did anyone decide to answer the challenge to shoot a F13 homage for the Maniafest/Cinescape announcement? If you missed it, go back to how this thread opened.

    People, this is what Paramount has been saying all along "we'll possibly re-visit them when the theatrical versions are finished."

    There's no doubt in my mind that, along with the rise in success of FVJ, and the lack of theatrical versions left, they'll put out something we can be happy with.

    Oh Martin, you tease!

    Well, at least this Halloween I can screen F13th uncut on my 43" plasma, I guess the rest of them will have to wait until next Halloween [​IMG] If you read between those lines....

    An addition to the cut stuff, while trawling through my F13th files, I found an old Fangoria with Part 2's cut footage mentioned, it lost 48 seconds....

    BTW anyone here read the great news over at the Mobius forum regarding "EvilSpeak"?
    Anchor Bay US have obtained the rights for the uncut version [​IMG]

    Martin, it is nice to see you chime in on this thread to be honest and hopefully you mean what you say when you are 'dying' to prove us all wrong...hopefully that means it will be happening eight times over...[​IMG]

    (Keep in mind though...you can only improve on part five so much...damn that one needs some help!)

    OOOOOOOOHHHHHH....the suspense!!!!

    I'm glad someone from Paramount is actually sharing some semi-positve feedback concerning these recent developments.

    As long as the cut footage is integrated back into the features I will buy this set on street date and treasure it forever.

    Hmm the plot thickens, I've just been told the alternate ending for Part 3 should be finally seeing the light of day...Let's hope Dana Kimmel doesn't have final say!

    I hope the long rumoured F13th footage of Bill's death is found, that is if it ever exsisted?
    It certainly wasn't in the first Italian, German, Spanish, English, Greek, French nor Polish releases, as I've owned them all.

    In fact of all my years collecting F13th memorabilia, I've only ever seen three versions of part 1, the R rated US cut, the unrated UK/Ger/Fr/Pol/Sp/It/Gr prints & the R1 dvd with the additional Annie footage...

    Are you able to confirm to us at least if this thread heading is true or not, that there will be some sort of official announcement on Sep 19th? Thanks in advance.
