    Wasn't the Speed SE supposed to have been announced several month's ago? I think thedigitalbits hinted at that...and what is the story with True Lies? last I heard was a delay due to the sensitivity of 9/11...is this true?

    Speaking of Fox, I was wondering if we (America) will be seeing the DVD release of that awsome Predator SE? I'm REALLY hoping for a "yes"!

    In Australia from Fox on May 5 2002 are the following:

    Predator 2-disc set with director's commentary & dts

    Speed 2-disc set with director's commentary & dts

    The Great Escape 2-disc set with cast & crew commentary

    Thelma & Louise with director's commentary & cast commentary

    Not sure about region 1 yet, but surely they'll all be out sooner or later...

    both Speed and True Lies have Five Star Collection editions in the works. Both should street this year, with Speed probably being sometime mid summer.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm really looking to the Five-Star True Lies. I just hope this comes out sooner rather than later.

    These are two titles that are on my "when-they-get-SE-treatment" list. An extended Jamie Lee Curtis dance routine would be really special![​IMG]

    I'd like to have True Lies. I used to like Speed, but saw it so much that I got sick of it. Alot of movies I can watch over and over, unfortunately I found out Speed wasn't one of them.

    According to DVD FILE.com:

    "In our last bit of news today, Video Premieres Magazine reported in their most recent issue that the oft-postponed True Lies special edition, rumored to have been on hold due to the tragedy on 9-11, is now back in production for a planned 2003 release. Fox Home Entertainment would not confirm nor deny the story when contacted late last week, so we'll let you be the judge..."

    I wonder if this is still a Five-Star title. Now we have to wait until 2003?!? I think it's ridiculous. This should have been out this year.

    In regards to a Predator SE this is from http://www.darkhorizons.com/news.htm
    On the update for Tuesday, May 28th under Garth's DVD reviews he states that "I look at the 2-disc Special Editions of "Speed" and "Predator" which hit locally June 15th and in the US late July."
    While I know that the Speed SE is being released in the US, this is the first time I heard of a SE of Predator being released here. I don't know if he is mistaken or not or just meant the Speed release?
    He also reviews both titles and includes full specs for both. If we get the same things here then it will be worth the wait.
