    Is there a new version of Hunt for Red October just out now?
    Amazon has a DVD listed with a release date of this month and its described as "widescreen collection". Is this something new or the same version as before ? I know this is on a lot of wish lists but hadn't heard that Paramount was doing something this soon. Thanks.

    Yes, a re-release of all the current Jack Ryan movies is planned for the premiere of The Sum of all Fears. [​IMG]

    Paramount just marked down all three existing Jack Ryan DVD's (Hunt, Clear & Present, Patriot Games) to lower SRPs. Amazon always lumps markdowns and new releases in together.

    THERE IS NO NEW RELEASE FOR HUNT COMING! Martin Blythe has pretty much said that they aren't really revisiting titles already released to disc, except for the Star Trek films. Instead, they are concentrating on new product.

    I doubt we see DVD double-dips of anything Paramount for quite some time!
