    I picked up MASH in January and was wondering if anybody had any information on Fox's Five Star Collection line-up and rumored release dates for the rest of 2002. Thanks in advance.

    I've heard talk of Speed and True Lies sometime this summer.

    Unfortunately, True Lies has been pushed until later, after Speed, to my knowledge.

    Since a Predator SE (as well as a Speed SE)have already been annouced for region 4, I suspect that these 2 titles will be coming this year.

    I hope the "Sunrise" DVD is a 5-star.

    I'd certainly like to hear the re-recorded score in PCM 5.1 since the only other extras are possibly the original Movietone (mono) audio track, outtakes, and a photo gallery.

    A commentary by Lokke Heiss (sic?) would be neat since he did a commentary for Nosferatu (The "red cover" SE).

    I wonder if "All That Jazz" would be considered

    a 5-Star release with the extensive restoration

    it went through.

    BTW, just found out it had a NYC theatrical

    premier for its restored version. I wasn't

    notified about it. Anyone in this forum have

    the chance to see it?

    Patick, is Sunrise actually coming out or is this just wishful thinking?

    I heard that the original Miracle on 34th Street was getting a 5-star release this Christmas.

    Sorry, Jay, but I wouldn't expect a 5-Star Predator anytime soon.

    Wasn't there potential for Home Alone and Big to be 5-stars, rereleased around Christmas time? Definitely a possibility.

    You would think Fox would have just waited and made Predator (DTS) into a Five Star when they re-released it a year-and-a-half ago. But, again, they wouldn't have us buying it for the second or third time if they did it the right way.

    Isn't The Day The Earth Stood Still going to be Five Star? It's a pretty important film for Fox and I'd heard they where going full out on the DVD.

    Richard, I think TDTESS it is going to be one of the next ones next to Speed.
