I'm considering this a rumor until there's a press release. Plausible, though, considering the Valentine's Day 2023 theatrical re-release.

The Abyss is coming at some point - a new master was made several years ago and has played on a variety of subscription streaming and premium cable services like HBO. Cameron also supervised the tweaking of this master last spring.

It’s widely believed that a physical media release would be times to coincide with the physical media release of Avatar 2, which is also water-themed.

Have you seen The Abyss remastered on a streaming service, and if so, did you like what you saw in quality?

Still baffles me that a letterboxed DVD is the best we have gotten in this country for The Abyss. I think True Lies is the same.

I watched it on HBOMax about a year ago. I think it was the first thing I watched on that service after signing up. And it looked really good, albeit HD, not 4K. The slight downside was that it was the Theatrical Cut. I haven't heard anything about whether the Extended Cut has been streamed, or whether there's a 4K stream of it. I really need to check that out.

I also haven't heard anything concrete, but I wouldn't be surprised if a UHD release of Avatar 2 was accompanied by ones for Avatar, Aliens, and The Abyss (if not also True Lies).

The Dolby Cinema re-release is December 1. The Valentine's Day release is for international territories but I suppose it's possible that a wider (non-Dolby) re-release will also happen in the U.S. in February too.
Are you sure? I see news stories about a Dolby Cinema rerelease for the film's 20th anniversary on December 1, 2017, but nothing for 2022.

The International Valentines Day re-release was announced here:

You're correct and I've corrected my post. That's what I get for not thinking that the OP would post a five year old trailer. :laugh:

for those still holding on to D.C.S.E. DVD waiting for the “Ultimate 4K” release, to best experience the visual aspect of the movie, i suggest to set your dedicated bluray player for DVD playback, to output in 720p.

there you'll get to fed with high-def SHD to your eyes, till the next Valentine Day arrives.
