    Doesn't say anything about special features though. For those with PAL playback capability get the R2 version from play.com with the commentary track. Also, it's priced at an incredible low £5.99. [​IMG]

    Unfortunately the R2 editions have been badly cropped on either side of the frame [​IMG]
    The only saving grace is the funny commentary with Carpenter and Piper [​IMG]

    Hopefully this R1 edition is correctly framed as well having the commentary

    I hope these are SE's. I have the decent-enough older versions from Image. If they're barebones, there won't be much of a reason to upgrade.

    Yes! I sold my OOP copy for about $50 last year after watching it once, and I've been jonesing to see it again. Universal's doing pretty good with the OOP releases this year.

    Is The Thing getting a re-release? With anamorphic print?

    I noticed it in the JC boxset.

    This thread is being hijacked by people who want universal to re-release their former Image titles. It must stop.

    *cough cough* Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie. *cough*

    excuse me!
