    According to www.dvdangle.com Columbia/Tri-Star is finally releasing the 2-disc Starship Troopers: Special Editon on May 28th. They didn't have any details on specs, but let's just hope it's in widescreen....

    I do know that there will be an isolated music score with a commentary from composer Basil Poledouris (this is mentioned on his website).

    I really enjoy Starship Troopers and own the current release, but I'll most likely get the new version as well. Basil Poledouris recorded that commentary a long time ago so it's nice that the DVD finally has a release date. I can hardly wait to see the specs. [​IMG]

    That's great news... I've been holding out on buying the current version since I knew this was in the works.

    Seeing as how it's a 2-disc job, I'd expect the works.

    So WILL it be a "SuperBit Deluxe"? Or is it just a SE?

    I'm excited about this one - including the news that Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles - The Homefront Campaign and Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles - The Klendathu Campaign will also appear that day.

    I have the first four volumes, and the last two were very well done. It seems they went the extra effort seeing how well they have sold.

    has anyone heard whether some of the TV spots will make it on the SE. specifically the ones featuring "Song No. 2" by the group Blur. those were some of the coolest TV spots i've ever seen.

    I'd like to see those TV spots as well... I missed them when I bought the current version 3 years ago.

    Cool it's looking to be a superbit deluxe, but of course if it truly is, and Sony stick to their superbit rules, the existing commentary will be thrown out the window and there is no hope for this isolated score.

    I'd question if the iso score thing was ever fully going ahead. Someone said Basil did a commentary for an isolated track ages ago? Was this before or after he made the sudden damand to remove the isolated track from Conan?

    Brilliant news another one of my favourites, also one of the first discs I brought.

    Is anybody got any idea on price?

    I'm looking forward to this release. I wonder if there will be commentaries, but if that's not the case I still have the old DVD. I'm excited to see what new features this edition will have.

    Iain,

    You can blame film music journalist Ford Thaxton for the lack of isolated score on Conan. It was planned, Basil gave it the ok then Ford stepped in basically explaining the bad side of isolated scores for the composer and record label.

    Most composers REALLY don't like the isolated tracks, big reason so few discs have them these days. Composers and the record labels got really angry.
