    Probably a BD + DVD set, MGM is doing that for most catalog releases. What is unfortunate is that, for most, the extras (including audio commentaries) are on the DVDs only, instead of being included on the BD.

    Not having the commentaries on the Blu does bother me, but having the extras on another disc isn't a huge deal. Most of the time the extras are in standard def and even if they're not - I'm not buying Blu Rays for extras.

    Most of the time if I buy a catalog Blu Ray - it's for seeing the film in high def, nothing more, nothing less. So even no special features doesn't warrant me to shy away from the release. I have the DVD, have seen the features so it's not a huge deal.

    But very glad to hear these are finally coming out, especially ROTLD.

    This year is getting expensive for Blu Rays. ROTLD is a day one purchase.

    Weird!? I just bought both of these on DVD the other day with their sweet lenticular covers. Good thing I haven't opened them yet though, I'll be making a quick return.

    Excellent news. I never upgraded to the better versions of either of these, so this is very nice indeed. I'm most excited about ROTLD. I've watched that film countless times, so seeing it in HD will be a real treat!

    This makes my day. I never got the special edition DVD of ROTLD...and last year the cover on my original DVD got messed up because it was too close to a heat source which made all the glow in the dark material turn to a powdery mess.
    I do have the Special Edition Body Snatchers, but love the movie enough to get the BD.

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers is one of the best films of the 1970s and definitely one of the best sci-fi films ever made. This is one of the rare instances where the remake outdoes the original. Having the film take place in San Francisco makes it feel all the more claustrophobic and frightening.

    I've been anticipating a blu-ray release of Invasion. Nice to know one's finally on the way.

    Awesome- I love ROTLD and right now only own the vhs quality import dvd from tartan because it has the original soundtrack (which I really wanted). But I wouldnt mind double dipping and having the superior video quality now too on blu <:
