    The first art is pretty classic - I can't see them diverging too much from that. And they're doing uncut, which nobody ever imagined the old Paramount would do, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt here.

    This is the best news I've heard all year though - I'll be getting each Friday on Blu-ray day and date. I can't wait to see these in high def. I just hope they don't stop at one.

    and I see alot of the extras are called "part 1" so this can only mean that there are more Blu's to come. Well that and the fact that they state it, lol.

    I would absolutely love to have parts 1-6 on BD with their original cover art...and uncut and loaded with extras.

    No more 2 films per disc. No more slim cases (with BD, this shouldn't be a problem) No more skimping on extras (at least one commentary track on each film) No more shitty photoshop covers (use the original VHS poster art) No more R-rated theatrical versions (if possible)

    For once...Do it Right!

    It has to be. Only Friday the 13th, Part III (and Freddy vs Jason for that matter) has an OAR of 2.35:1. All of the rest are 1.85:1.

    My friend said he saw Part 2 & 3 available in HD on the XBOX live marketplace, so that has me leaning towards the notion that they at least have HD prints for 2 &3 ready.

    Hmmm...so they're carring over the specs from the boxset, and keeping the original titles...("Friday the 13th Chronicles - Part 1", etc) which leads me to believe Paramount is planning blu-ray releases for its sequels as well. I have little doubt in my mind that they're going to follow suit and release its sequels.

    Already have it pre-ordered anyway.

    Oh and I also found out (from a forum on blu-ray.com) that the new UK blu-ray of The Thing (with all the features from the DVD included) is going to be region-free, as the Danish release already is. Special features to be in 480p as well, so there's no problem watching them on an NTSC HDTV.

    Well as far as I know they're planning to release Part 3 in 3D on Bluray, so I'm guessing we can expect Part 2 also.

    Well, if the DVDs (parts 2 and 3) have new transfers we'll know for sure if a blu-ray is in the works.

    According to Amazon they will have new transfers. Looks like we can expect Bluray releases.

    They are clearly testing the waters with part 1, so I guess they will decide based on the sales of that disc if they want to more forward with the rest.
