    I remember when they first started with that product line how they positioned them as the ultimate movie experience. Nowadays you don't hear a peep from them about them. The last release under that label I remember is LEGEND? Anyone have any ideas what's going on with them? I'm really looking forward to the day the release a ULTIMATE EDITION of FIELD OF DREAMS.

    What happened? They didn't sell. If I remember correctly, LEGEND was the last UE.

    I'm pretty sure Stargate was to be the next UE, although it has been delayed.

    Does this mean the 12 Monkeys:UE is off the table now? I remember rumblings about it a year ago but nothing has been said about it for a while.

    Yeah, I sold my 12 Monkeys: CE because the UE had been announced about a year ago.

    Of course, here I am still waiting with no new release in site...

    Whoops, good call Dave. Stargate is to be an Ultimate Edition, but not Universal's UE.

    I guess somebody forgot to copyright the term "ultimate edition"!

    I sold my 12 Monkeys CE off too. [​IMG] I did this because it had seemed at the time that the Ultimate Edition was all BUT officially announced. Oh well, I'll be repurchasing this soon

    Aside from Legend, Universal blew it on these by squandering their efforts on reprehensible garbage like Patch Adams. Yeah, like where's that UE of Dragonfly? [​IMG]

    They realized "Ultimate" means "Last" and didn't want to rule out ever releasing certain movies again. [​IMG]

    Maybe Universal got ticked off at losing sales because people weren't thrilled with initial SEs of films and were content to wait for the "inevitable" UE.....

    Twelve Monkeys doesn't need an "Ultimate Edition" and if you sold off the Collector's Edition because it was "announced", shame on you.
    Don't believe everything people post on the Internet. Well, believe this post, but other than that... [​IMG]
