    Will it keep all of the existing extra features? That was a pretty jam-packed disc.

    It looks as if it will carry over all the previous features. Other than that, no additional information has been verified.

    The big question is whether the new disc will be anamorphic, as the original release was not.

    Hopefully it will be anamorphic. I can't believe I held out all this time, but it would be pointless to reissue the same disc with new artwork.

    Pointless yes, but done many times. Columbia/TriStar just did it with Cruel Intentions.

    Ravenous was the first DVD I ever bought, and I've actually been meaning to rebuy it, as its looking more and more worn out every time I watch it. Glad they announced this before I did so. Now I'll just wait for this version.

    That's weird, because my Edition is not like the first posted.

    It's this one:

    So, 3 covers!

    I really (Really, really) Hope the new will be anamorphic. That's the only reason for a Double Dip for me.

    I haven't yet picked this up, so I might as well wait. I hate the new cover art though.[​IMG]

    Would very much have preferred this last-posted cover, but the new one will have to do, even though it makes it look like another one of those cheap craptacular "horror" mooveez. Amazon has it for preorder but no details of yet.

    Interesting. To me, a cover with a knife blade dripping in blood with a couple floating heads screams craptacular "horror" mooveez.

    In my opinion, both older covers look cheap and do not come close to the original theatrical poster. Instead, they rely on the old "floating heads" style to sell the video, where as the original theatrical poster and new cover art are clearly artistic choices that represent a far more interesting and compelling view.

    But hey... some folks just love floating heads. [​IMG]
