    Even though the original boxart was great. I'm kinda digging this new one. It looks like work was put into it and is pretty representative of the feel of the film. I can't wait for this release.

    Great news. But Fox has dropped all extras on their on prior releases of Special Edition DVDs on Blu-Ray.

    Here are some examples.

    Predator was released on Blu-Ray with no extras after the fantastic Collector's Edition, so was Cast Away. I'd think this will follow suit. Hoping they do add the extras though.

    Sweet! I love this movie, so I'll definitely be getting it.

    Fox has improved with porting over all the previous extras to Blu-ray releases recently, so hopefully they will here too. If not, I'll obviously keep my old 2-DVD set.

    I'm ok with extras not going over if it means more space to audio/video quality. If it's a movie I love, I will keep the DVD. What I won't do is double-dip down the road should they release another blu w/extras. The exception being if the latter release also had an improved transfer - then I would double dip.

    I'm one of those suckers that has about 15 versions of certain movies (Evil Dead cough cough) so I do on occasion double (or triple or worse) dip for movies I really like. Big Trouble in Little China is one of those movies that I would buy several times because it's one of my all time favorites. I would still get this blu ray though even if it was barebones as long as the picture looked fantastic which it should.

    I'm amazed that they did a photoshop job that doesn't look like a Scream poster or just completely suck in some way. I still think the original art from the first dvd is the best though, I'd go so far as to call it iconic. I still can't understand why studios commision great pieces of art, then just disregard them when it's time to release or re-release the film and pay someone else to photoshop some shit together.
    I've always wanted to see this alternate poster used for something, maybe the BR SE down the road.

    As long as the music video is included, I'm happy.

    No, those new specs look awesome. Extended cut and all the extras from the two disc? Yee haw, I'll definitely be boarding the pork chop express this summer!

    Def. be picking this up! One of my favourite movies, and I'm glad that they are including everything from the DVD as well, and if the extended cut is true, even better.

    Haha I was JUST gonna say that!

    But yo I'm totally getting this on release day. A lot of Carpenter's films seem to be hitting blu awfully fast.

    Oh wow. I didn't realize this extended cut was old news. Then again all I've ever had was the barebones dvd.

    Hmm, I may be buying a blu-ray player sooner rather than later....

    I've held off so far, but this is one of my favorite movies ever...

    Well the extras news is amazing. Just what I was hoping for. This is a first day must buy.

    Russell looks a bit like Billy Ray Cyrus on the disc art.

    The extended cut is new, it was def. not on the 2 disc DVD set. Can't wait to see what they include in it!

    Wow! They really don't make 'em like they used to.

    New cover is underwhelming. Here's hoping they pull a Monster Squad and include an old-school cover that you can switch in.
