Gonna get the entire trilogy

I wish they also released part 4 and 5, also called as "Scanner Cop 1 and 2" over here in Europe.

I'll be waiting to see how the domestic Criterion and Shout blus compare. I imagine Criterion will be getting Cronenberg's involvement, which the Second Sight disc seems to be missing.

Is this official that Criterion is going to release Scanners this year?If so,it's a blind buy for me!If Criterion does for Scanners what they did for Videodrome,that will be great!

Criterion released a drawing at the beginning of the year that contains hints of what's to come. Someone touched it up for ease of guessing.



If G. isn't Darryl Revok, I'd eat my hat.

Um, this certainly throws a wrench into everything. I'm withdrawing my Second Sight preorder for the trilogy (I thought all their stuff was region-free??) until I know for sure that Criterion is actually releasing the original. Then when Shout confirms the specs for their release(s) I'll decide how to proceed but all of this back-and-forth is baffling to me.

Now we got no choice to wait!!It's probably region b now because of Criterion and Shout! releasing those movies in North America.But why change everything at the last minute?

Yep! The reason SS have had to lock their release is due to the Criterion version coming out.

It's been a not very well kept secret for about 6 months that it's coming soon, Around June I believe
