    2 things:

    1) Hope for a non-DNR version.
    2) Hope the Bluray is from the new scan too (really doubt it having Die Hard as an example)

    This film has such a troubled release history that I'm not going to hold my breath for anything different than what we've already been given. I would LOVE to be proven wrong!

    There's a 4K version available on iTunes that looks quite good. I'd imagine the disc would be from the same master.

    Has anybody seen the new iTunes streaming version? If so, how is it? Is it brighter than the first Blu-ray? Do the colors match the first Blu-ray or the second? Some are saying it is the DNR version but before they applied the DNR. Others say it is an all-new version.

    That would be great, but unfortunately Twentieth Century Fox Germany say that the UHD set contains the existing 1080p Blu-ray discs, no remastered discs based on the new 4K transfers.
    The argumentation is a slap in the face of every truly movie enthusiast.

    They say the Ultimate Hunter Editions have so many fans, because of the complaints about the heavy graining of the first release and the DNR that solve this "problem". And that was the reason because they use this again and don't make a new 1080p Blu-ray.

    Here the original statement:

    "Lieber Paulo,
    Bei den anstehenden Predator UHD Veröffentlichungen im September werden die bekannten Blu-ray Master beiliegen.
    Uns ist bekannt das einige Fans das aktuelle Blu-ray Master kritisch sehen. Durch den Einsatz von Rauschfiltern verhindert das Blu-ray Master nun einmal einen sehr „filmkörnige“ Projektion des Films. Das gefällt vielen und einige möchten lieber einen grobkörnigeren Look. Das ist Geschmackssache, speziell wenn man diesen Kultfilm sehr mag. Das frühere Blu-ray Master ist zum Vergleich bei mehr Fans in Ungnade gefallen, weswegen ja die „Ultimate Hunter Edition“ neu remastered wurde. Dieses Master veröffentlichen wir daher weiter auf der Blu-ray.
    Viele Grüße [​IMG]:)
    Dein Fox-HE-Team"

    They should do a Terminator 2/Predator 4K UHD DNR Edition bundle release.

    Not even on my radar Robert. Will check it out, but I thought the combo pack info was relevant to this thread.

    Deep in the jungle, several bodies have been discovered skinned and hanging from trees although who or what could have done this is a mystery. Military covert specialist Dutch (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and his team are called in to eliminate the threat, but once in the heart of the menacing jungle, they discover something far worse than they could ever have imagined, the Predator alien which has come to earth with cloaking technology, extensive combat skills and a desire to hunt humans for sport.

In PREDATOR, Arnold Schwarzenegger wages an all-out war against a force more powerful and deadly than any on earth. Then in PREDATOR 2, hardheaded cop Danny Glover battles the predator in the urban jungle of Los Angeles. Finally, in PREDATORS, Adrien Brody leads a group of elite warriors who find themselves on an alien planet targeted by a vicious new breed of predators. It’s the ultimate showdown between hunter and prey!
    In addition to the wide availability of the PREDATOR 3-Movie Collection on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD, a limited-edition Steelbook version of the collection will be available on Blu-ray at Best Buy and FYE.

    I've been hearing rave reviews about the iTunes 4K version of the first movie. Presumably (hopefully) that will be ported to the UHD BD.

    The UHD disc and UHD streaming will both be from the new master. The 1080p disc is not from the new master which is fine by me, give the nod to the UHD discs to drive the format.

    Be warned it's the exact same as UHE, only with grain. So it looks wrong in all the same places the UHE looked wrong, (like the dusk scene where Dutch is covered in mud on the border of the river, now being like a day for night shot). Also the opening credits have been remade, with a font which is similar, but not spots on.
    The UHE was made to make the film look like Avatar (it came out 6 months after) to convert it in 3D so that the Avatar fury might profit it as Predator is an influence on how the jungle scenes appear in Avatar.
    In a weird way, what happened to it, with the degrained Blu-ray release, is exactly what happened to T2 recently for the same reasons.
