    Seems they are re-releasing this DVD on May 11th labeled "Limited Edition"...

    I never bought this movie on DVD, should I get this new edition or should I get one of the earlier releases? I know that they re-released a single disc edition last year which is still available... What would be the difference between these two?

    I have no real interest in hunting down the 2 disc edition that is now disscontinued. I like this movie but not to that degree.

    Sebastien:

    I believe I read that they are re-releasing this movie (1-disc) to tie into the theatrical release of "The Day After Tomorrow" (same production team as "Independence Day") with trailers for the latter movie included. The 2 disc version is available at Best Buy as part of Fox's Special Edition release series (numbered spines). I don't know if it is available in the Great White North (maybe Media Play, as I believe they are affiliated with Best Buy).

    Hope this helps!

    The reason for the re-release is to hype up "The Day After Tomorrow". They have a Double Digipak out right now that, I'm pretty sure, is the same as the 5-star collection version just different packaging.

    Yep.

    Price is the only advantage of the upcoming LE.
