    Speculation is Q4 this year, but conservative wisdom tells me a couple of months before the sequel hits the big screen next year.

    They did it this year with Charlie's Angels SB release earlier this month and now with Bad Boys SB tomorrow with the Bad Boy followup a few weeks away.

    They'll use the SB release as a way to strike when the hype is getting hot.

    I can wait. I never purchased the original non-SB version for the fact that Columbia Tristar usually releases substandard product on the first go round. There's no reason their titles should not be SB from the get go.

    In a perfect world maybe - but it's the age old truth 'c'est la vie'. Studios are out to make a buck over everything else.

    I guess I'm a little confused about the whole Superbit concept.

    If a movie is released on two discs (as is common today), then isn't it a 'superbit' by default?

    I've also come across quite a few movies that have no extras whatsoever. Superbits as well?

    Not necessarily. It must have a higher bit-rate and ALL Suerbits include a DTS track. So, just because a studio decides to release a title with no extras, or extras on a second dvd, that doesn't make it a Superbit title. Remember, only Columbia is releasing Superbit titles, therefore in the case of "Star Wars Ep 1&2", the bit-rate is maxed out, but it doesn't have a DTS track; and it is released by 20th Century Fox. It is not a "Superbit" title by definition.
