Does anyone know the difference (if any) between the Ultimate Edition released last year, and the new Definitive Ediiton (Fox release?!?) being released on March 5th? Was planning on picking up Ultimate to sit alongside my Criterion edition, but possibly Definitive is superior??? Anyone know? Can't find much info online.

Haven't a clue, but the things to look out for what be that 1) the captions are burnt-in and not player-generated (if it is Fox, then they are usually quite good at keeping the original captions intact, though they may just go with MGMs print for ease) and that 2) the opening titles are present and correct.

MGMs last release ("Ultimate Edition"?) not only suffered from those same player-generated captions that the original release had, but also somehow managed to miss off most of the opening credit cpations too. Presumably, a "clean" version of the opening sequence was used in order for the same master to be used throughout Europe, then someone forget to put the credits back on.
