Agreed! I'm glad this is finally getting the special edition treatment. I'm eager to see those deleted scenes too. Nice cross-promotion, releasing it on the same day as Alien vs. Predator :)

Wow, that's the first (and hopefully only) time I have ever heard that! Not trying to be nasty, just stating my extreme surprise. I consider it one of the worst sequels ever.

damn. I got the first release for like $7 or $8. I might have to re-buy if it's cheap enough. :)

Danny Glover never seemed quite right without Mel in an action flick but it still was a decent sequel. A

I'm extremely pleased with this development. I've always thought this film to be quite superior to the original, and I'll double dip in an instant.

Before "AvP" I would have agreed with you, but now it looks like "The Godfather Part II" in comparison.

Not everyone shares the same opinion about films, so you shouldn't be surprised that others, like this film more than you. IMO, I thought this sequel was pretty damn good.

Alright! I was actually going to pick up the current version at Best Buy the next time I went (it's only 9.99). This will be purchased as soon as it comes out. Thanks, Fox!

Argh!

I bought the movie-only, haven't watched it, now this one comes out...

Regardless, glad it's coming.

Very nice indeed - great news! So far I've lived with cheap R2 versions, finally I can have both Predator movies in a CE!

I'm also happy about this release. While not as thrilling as the original, it did have some nice action sequences and gave us a little backstory on the Predators. Let's hope they use better coverart for this, as the coverart for the bare bones is downright lame.

The deleted scenes would be nice to see, but I stuck with my Predator 1 DTS, and I think I'll stick with my Predator 2 DTS unless I can pick it up as cheap as the original release. Even then...

I try to only double dip on titles that had horrible or non-anamoprhic transfers. Just made some nice upgrades with Species (which even has some fun commentary) and Universal Soldier. For just $10 a pop too. THAT'S the way to re-issue.
