    Was there ever an extended cut or are you just hoping they made one for this box set release?

    Back in 2006, Singer did mention something, there are a ton of deleted scene's on the disc, not to mention the Return To Krypton scene which cost $10 million, surely we are going to see that one day? So it was more hope than anything to answer your question.

    Ah gotcha, it would be nice to be able to check that out in its completion. Besides the Blu-Ray disc has enough space to hold both versions if they really wanted. Why not give it to us if they took the time to upgrade HD versions of SM 3&4?

    Exactly, I cant see them keeping a $10 million scene under wraps forever as well, surely they have to let us see it some time, why not now?

    Well, they did pay Cage something like $5 million to play Superman, and I doubt we'll ever actually see that :p

    Gotta love those pay or play contracts. :cwink:

    But we did see some of the pre-production photos for Superman Lives and a mold of Cage in the Superman suit. I also like that Nic Cage made more than Brandon Routh without having to do ****....haha.

    Sorry for to derail the Superman discussion, but does anyone know if there are plans for blu-ray releases of the Scream movies before Scream 4 comes out?

    I haven't heard any plans, though I wouldn't be shocked to hear of a trilogy boxed set coming out this year either when the new movie hits theaters or when it hits video.

    If you are desperate you can actually get the Scream trilogy right now on Blu-ray. It was released in Canada. http://www.amazon.ca/Scream-Franchise-Collection-Blu-ray/dp/B003SXHZH2/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

    BUT...there is a catch. The transfers are only 1080i not 1080p and I am pretty sure it is lacking in the extras department. But I am sure a definitive release will happen around the time Scream 4 hits theaters or Blu-ray itself.

    Blue Velvet Deleted Scenes Found, Soon on Blu-ray
    During a recent radio interview, David Lynch revealed that the deleted scenes from his 1986 masterpiece Blue Velvet, which for a long time were thought to be lost forever, had recently been found "somewhere up in Seattle." Lynch said that "hopefully" some of those scenes will end up in an upcoming Blu-ray (although he also noted that some of them "aren't worth putting back together"). It will also feature a brand-new 5.1 mix supervised by Lynch and his sound engineer Dean Hurley.

    As explained on the Blue Velvet special edition DVD released in 2002, the original cut of the film as assembled by Lynch had a running length of around four movies. However, his contract with producer Dino De Laurentiis obligated Lynch to deliver a two-hour movie so he had to perform extensive cuts, deleting whole scenes and subplots.

    During the interview, Lynch said that he had been seeking out all that deleted material, "because some of these scenes on their own would be beautiful to see again." However, he found out that De Laurentiis's company had been sold to other companies and neither the producer (who passed away in November 2010) nor anybody else knew where the unused and deleted footage was. So it is a stroke of luck that such a treasure trove has been unearthed.

    At the moment, Blue Velvet is still unannounced on Blu-ray in the US; it is coming out in France on February 16.

    Trio of Lionsgate Blu-ray Titles Exclusively at Best Buy
    On February 1, Best Buy will offer exclusively three Blu-ray titles from the Lionsgate catalog: the Oscar-winning documentary The Cove (Louie Psihoyos, 2009); The Rules of Attraction (Roger Avary, 2002); and Still WaitingÂ… (Jeff Balis, 2009). Disc details and the length of this exclusivity period have not been disclosed.

    I am just so surprised that David Lynch, an American director, is getting a lot of his stuff released on Blu-ray overseas but in the US all we have from him is Dune.

    Scream's not on Blu yet!? :cmad: Maybe they are waiting to do a 4-movie boxset... collectors are used to waiting anyway :dry:

    Disney is probably gonna release the Blu-ray of Tron and Tron Legacy together too...

    Well like I said the Scream trilogy is available...just only in Canada but the US release will probably be superior.

    And it has already been confirmed Tron is coming to Blu-ray and the only logical date it would come out is when Tron Legacy does.

    I admit I have never watched either Tron, so I'm eagerly waiting for both on Blu... I saw a cover art for the original Tron somewhere on the internets, not sure if it was legit or just fanart

    The upcoming Tron Blu-ray release is a major one and is going to be a pretty decent seller aside from the fact that people are gonna wanna pick it up when they pick up Tron Legacy because any DVD version of Tron is surprisingly hard to find for a reasonable price and the Blu-ray version is supposed to be coming with a DVD copy as well. Don't believe me go look on Amazon.com. I think the cheapest version of a Tron DVD on there right now is $58 and that is for a USED copy.

    It's a tactic that a lot of studios do if they know they've got a major Blu-Ray release, they pull all copies from the shelf, 'putting it in the vault' as it were. It helps build a need for it, plus in Tron's case, I read somewhere that Disney were nervous that the original film would put newer viewers off watching Legacy.

    Yeah, it is kind of strange, but I think he's generally always been more appreciated in some oversea markets. I'm pretty sure the French love the hell out of him. I do want my Lynchy in HD, though :(

    I don't think you'll have to wait long for the Spidey films, I'm sure with next years reboot, they will put out something to coincide.

    Disney seems to be the most notorious with their dumb vault stuff. Poor Aladdin. :( I may only own you on VHS forever. :p

    Yea I guess the Re-re-release of the Spider-Mans will come later this year or early next year...

    I'm thinking of buying that cardboard box with the 4 TMNTs in it, what's so bad about that set?
