    Very, very curious to see the results of the "Brilliant Restoration." I believe this was edited on tape back in the day. The ad says they redid the special effects for HiDef, so I'm assuming it's along the lines of Star Trek TNG. I guess they invested because "The Stand" is going to be remade for CBS All Access or somesuch.

    Yup — evidently they’re actually going back to the original uncut film-negative for this, and are even producing brand-new VFX shots in HD (similar to TNG), replacing the old ones (which would look absolutely horrendous upscaled, due to originally being rendered on low-resolution NTSC videotape, as you mentioned, endemic to far too many early-to-mid-‘90s genre productions).

    Never dreamed this would finally happen, but apparently the upcoming CBS All Access series kicked the jams out on giving this baby a decent Blu-Ray release at long last.

    Now if only they’d get ahold of director Mick Garris, who recently said that he’d shot a ton of fascinating BTS material during the production that he’d love to see included in a potential BD release.
