    And if you can't wait until October, check out Costco where many of those titles have already shown up for the past 2-3 weeks (as a $5 rebate tie-in with the release of the Daredevil DVD at the end of July).

    Any word as the whether THE ABYSS is the same non-anamorphic transfer? I'm sure it probably is, but Fox has been pretty good with upgrading older discs recently.

    Release 2-disc set, re-release as single-disc (identical but with bonus disc deleted), then re-release as 2-disc set.

    Bizarre.

    I'm just glad I sold my 2-disc Fight Club for $65.00 when I did. [​IMG]

    I just reeeeeaaallly hope that they don't add additional things on these re-re-releases. I would buy The Abyss again though if it was Anamorphic

    No word on Patton?

    I guess this at least bodes well for a future re-release.

    An anamorphic Abyss would be worthy of a second purchase!

    I'm still pissed off at the deception on the original 2-disc Abyss release. It clearly says enhanced for widescreen tv's at the bottom but when I called to complain years back after the store refused to give me my money back they informed that the wording is in fact true as the MENUS are enhanced. What crap. Nevertheless, I have watched the DVD countless times since purchasing and find the transfer passable though I wish it was much more. Hopefully, sometime there will be an anamorphic version of it. Maybe Fox has done it for the re-release.

    Where didyou guys get so much for these discs? When I heard about the rereleases months ago, I checked eBay and the original releases were going for around $20, which is what I'd pay for the new ones anyway.

    Any news regarding 'Big Trouble In Little China'? hopefully this will revert back to a 2 disc SE...especially as i had been meaning to get it, then found out it was only a single disc edition that was available.

    I thought planet of the apes was never released as a two disc! Behind Planet of The Apes came with the big box set only..... at least thats what I thought.

    Tim Burton's version released in 2001 was a two disc set. The 1968 original was only released in a single disc non anamorphic edition.

    I alreaady have all those except Independance Day, which I don't like much and The Sound of Music. I'll buy it if they've improved the transfer.
