Taken from DVD File....

Quote:
You've survived 11 movies (and counting)... but do you think you have what it takes to take on Jason yourself? As the ol' hockey-masked fiend gets ready to do battle with Freddy tomorrow, Cinescape has just announced a super-scary Friday the 13th amateur filmmaker contest. You've got 13 minutes or less to try your hand at "paying tribute to, poking fun at, or having your way with" Jason and the mythology established in the first eight Friday flicks. Deadline for submissions is September 8th, and then on Friday the 19th, the winner will be screened at Maniafest -and better yet for DVD fans, there will be a special midnight screening of the original Friday the 13th at midnight complete with a panel discussion beforehand (with very special guests), plus the revealing of official news about the upcoming DVD box set. Check out the Cinescape website (http://www.cinescape.com/0/News_2.asp) for the full scoop.


The actual link to Cinescape mentions nothing of the upcoming DVDs though...

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.
My Blu-ray collection so far:Casino Royale, The Fifth Element, 300, Unforgiven, T2, The Descent, The Road Warrior, The Untouchables, Purple Rain, Deliverance

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. Posted Image

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 Posted Image 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 Posted Image

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....
It's a 'need to know' situation, Paramount need to know we want F13th 2-8's restored and uncensored. No amount of talking head extras will do.

If Paramount were smart...which I would NEVER accuse them of being...they would do this. But considering their biggest advisors are Ben Franklin and the gang, they just may finally give us Unrated versions.

If Warner Bros. is smart, they'll release Freddy's Nightmares here in the states instead of just to R2.

I think the worst case scenario would be not getting the cut footage at all or even worse, the footage being lost forever. Don't get me wrong; I'd love to see the full original cuts without the MPAA butchering but I'll be happy to see the stuff even as a supplement. Not that I want to encourage Paramount to do a half-assed job. Posted Image

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 Posted Image 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 Posted Image

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...Posted Image

(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...

Martin:
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.

Hey now! Part V is my second favorite film in the series. :P) If you want one that needs some help, look at the horrid Jason Takes Manhattan with its truly godawful ending in the sewer.
