    I only ask because I'm holding it in my hands at a certain retailer. It's in a two-pack with Predator DTS for $16.99. A little sparse on features...two featurettes and the trailer. I can't see the video or audio specs since the "value pack" sticker is blocking them. [​IMG]
    Nice price, though!

    Yes. It's supposed to be released on February 4, 2003 - I've pre-ordered my copy. However, certain retailers have been selling the two-pack which includes Predator (DTS) and Predator 2 (Dolby Digital 5.1). It's the real deal and kudos to you if you can get it early!

    I will add that the picture at Deep Discount DVD does not do the cover artwork enough injustice. It's really quite horrible.

    I agree. It's going to be the worst DVD cover art in my collection - looks like a made for TV movie!

    If you have a BB by you the two pack (Predator-DTS & Predator 2) is only $16.99!

    What is the big deal with trying to come up with cover art for this film? Instead of using the one-sheet -- with a shot of the Predator, natch -- the old VHS and LD just had a distant shot of LA with a crappy red sky. Huh?

    Yep, I just saw the two-pack at my local big retailer as well. $16.99 for the two pack. Would've definitely picked it up if I didn't already have the R0 disc.

    Now that is a shitty cover, alright. The R2 version had different covers depending on the country - one was the shot of the predator, the other was the LA red sky (which I have, would have preferred the other though)...

    That's nowhere near as bad as Real Genius. It's an offensively annoying noggin cover, but that's all

    I saw the set yesterday at BB too. Has there been any talk of a future Predator SE release? If not, I'm all over this set. If so, then I'll wait.

    Does anyone else agree that Predator 2 has one of the best final lines of ANY action movie?

    A bit OT. . .they also had a 2-pack of Bedazzled (the new one) and Someone Like You (Ashley Judd). Are they worth picking up, or just garbage? (Gotta get somethin' for my lady!)

    LOL,
    A guy posts a thread about a possible release date and you decide to reply with "Predator 2 is horrible"? [​IMG] Why bother??
    Anyway, every web site I've searched for it on has a release date of Feb.4

    I think Pred2 is GREAT!! Finally get to see it uncut (I hope) for the first time since it's theater release.

    Still wondering about Predator: SE. . .
    Even BrentJ can't deny that the last line in Predator 2 is a classic! (The preceding 90 minutes are, of course, up for debate. [​IMG] )
