    None of the DVDs were anamorphic. There was a lot of disappointment when a new release was announced for 2002 and the back stated anamorphic just to see that it was the 1st disc of the 2 disc special edition.
    It does zoom in on by Sony and Samsung player, but do not let that fool you. The only transfer available on home video has a resolution of 640x272 I believe.

    At the very least they were almost definately withholding this and True Lies until near the release of Avatar 2

    I don't expect to see either of these titles on Blu-ray OR 4K UHD in my lifetime.

    I'm betting they will come out either right before, or right after Avatar 2 in theaters. Not 2019. Both films have underwater scenes. The best window to sell Abyss is by linking it to Avatar 2 with similar designs, creatures etc.

    We've been hearing this same story for how many years now? I will believe it when I see an actual studio announcement for the titles.

    I'll believe it when I see the pre-orders on Amazon, and not a moment sooner.

    Oh but then they're going to be delayed another 20 years for a 3D Conversion that'll sell all of three copies.

    So that's four standard work days and some change leftover. I'll wait an extra week to see Alita: Battle Angel or the Avatar sequels to fast track getting True Lies and The Abyss on blu-ray.

    Those transfers have been "ready" for his review for a long time. What a lame excuse.

    That's too soon. Believe it when the disc plops in your player - and maybe not even then!
