    Hey

    Here's the artwork for the collector's edition release of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country which should be out early next year. No big surprises really as it follows the same format as the rest of the releases. Will almost certainly be a two disc set anyway, although disc specs have yet to be released.

    Best opening shot in a movie ever (well, post-opening credits, at least). Can't wait to buy.

    Not the best art out there, but a pretty good movie. Totally looking forward to it.

    That's the original art for the movie poster, but without the "Star Trek VI The Undiscovered Country" type removed from the explosion area.

    I really hope that the theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1 is preserved on this release.

    Somehow, based on the title of the DVD, it looks like we're going to get the 113-minute extended cut that's been on video in the last decade.

    I really hope that for this DVD, they do a tribute to DeForest Kelley. He had some great moments in this film where McCoy as diplomat and soldier really shined, particularly during the courtroom scene and the finale. Because this was his final appearance as McCoy, there definitely needs to be a DeForest Kelley tribute.

    As for the Matt Jeffries tribute, it had been suggested that it was going to be on the upcoming Generations 2-disc set. I think it would go better on this disc, since it's the final Original Series-inspired film.

    This is a perfect movie for seamless branching. That would be the perfect way to preserve both versions of the film.

    I think it's safe to say that this DVD will probably have a commentary track, a text commentary track and motion menus. [​IMG]

    Not to be a total dork, but McCoy did show up again on ST:TNG (first episode, I think). I do however, agree 100% that there should be some kind of tribute.

    DeForest Kelley's cameo appearance on the "Encounter at Farpoint" premiere episode of ST:TNG was in 1987. The Undiscovered Country was released in 1991. So this was indeed his final appearance as McCoy.

    Sorry, Matt, I think this makes me even more of a dork than you... [​IMG]

    The current ST6 DVD does not have the correct AR. It's non-anamorphic, to boot.

    Can't wait to get this one.

    Looking forward to this as well. Also keeping my fingers crossed regarding the Aspect Ratio.

    I'm looking foward to it as well.

    I have the old release and want to get an anamorphic version of this fine film.

    On my widescreen set, the picture is so out of OAR, that i have to move the picture up the screen to get all of the klingon subtitles. This means that I crop of the top of the film.

    I haven't got the re-releases so far but do want this and a anamorphic Generations.

    Nothing about whether it will contain the theatrical cut of the movie, though. Not buying the disc without it.

    (Ironically, the DVDFile news item is next to an ad for a petition to put the original versions of the Star Wars films on DVD)

    Star Trek VI was filmed in Super 35. The effects were shot at 2:1 and that's about the ratio of the current widescreen transfer. The film was shown theatrically with anamorphic release prints and an aspect ratio of 2.35:1. And DVDFile says it will be 2.35:1! Thank you, Paramount!

    I would really, really hope this has the theatrical cut. I'm not a big fan of the Colonel West unmasking scene that came straight from a Scooby Doo episode.
