Confirmed by the guy who designed the steelbook to have the new transfer, could contain the new extras finished years ago by Van Ling:

Extras from Columbia house listing
Quote:
The Terminator: A Retrospective, "Other Voices" Documentary with James Cameron Interviews, Deleted Scenes
Missing is the already recorded commentary track. The Uk version of the film is now a 15 rating, so the new extras look to be what has bumped it back up to 18.



This is the first UK HD release of the first movie, the US get a new set:

Excellent news. But will be well done??? I suppose it can't be worse than the current Blu-ray, right?

I thought they ran out of money during the new 4k Terminator and T2 restorations (supposedly from the OCN's) and Cameron didn't pony up his own moola to finish it.

How can this be that restoration?

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

It needs the mono track (original soundtrack) or no dice. And not in compressed to crap 192DD either.

Lowry list it as completed and the extras are 100% finished I think it was the disc authoring and marketing that got in the way

If it is well done I'll be a day one buyer. I have yet to pick up any T1 or T2 blurays.

I don't think T2 was ever said to be remastered, was it?

Covers = gash.

Why can't we never have the original poster art.

Why can't we have nice things?

Going from memory, I thought Cameron was supervising digital restorations for both of his Terminator films.

Van Ling had mentioned something to that effect in the past.

Please just don't f--k this up like the current Sony and Skynet T2 editions with DNR and modern day contrast boosting and orange/teal color timing!!!!

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

Please, please let this have the original sound effects!

I hope this is region free, or gets a single movie release here. I doubt that the T2 included in that set is a new transfer. IF it IS, then I may just go for that one. I'd rather not do that though, cause I already have part 3 and 4 in blu

They had photoshop in 1984? Or did they use skynet to time travel?

LOL! I have an original one sheet poster with that photo on it. Awesome stuff.

Please tell me this isn't a Columbia House exclusive. Are they just listing it first (and perhaps too early)?

If T1 and T2 are properly done with original soundtracks intact, I'm all over this set. Heck, I might even join Columbia House if necessary. eek.gif

Movies look their best when they look like movies. More Patton-esque remasters!

T2 will never get the original CDS mix due to everyone loving Gary beyond reason

That looks much better than the altered version on the Blu-ray.

But this is how The Terminator should look:

The teal/orange color timing is a given. Cameron has been actively teal-ifying all of his old movies.

We need to develop a pair of teal and orange filtering viewing glasses (for that Olde-Timey effect!). Look- all of our Blu-ray discs are watchable now!

I don't feel special...

As much as I'd prefer the original art, I think the new cover art is still pretty good.

I'll be interested to see the screen caps for this one, and I really hope we get the original sound effects.

Heh. Aside from Aliens and the already-tealed Titanic we've seen squat on the new transfer front re: Terminator, T2, Abyss and True Lies. I don't doubt that they'll be tealed-up to the nines, though. biggrin.gif

Devil's advocate time: Terminator carries the mono track but has been tealified. Sale or no sale? Me, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

If only it were that simple. Me I am hoping for the day LUT is supported in whatever future format.
