Well Shout said it si going to have a second disc of bonus features that will make the old DVD look bare bones.

I don't care, the new transfer and the fact that I get to have the original poster art as the cover is AMAZING!!!!!!!!

They actually announced they got the rights to the movie back at SDCC in July.

Well given my handle, you can guess this is a day one purchase for me.

A new transfer would indeed be nice, but I'll welcome some new features!

My old MGM DVD IS babebones. I remember seeing a Collector's Edition DVD release from MGM though (2-disc set). Don't know what special features were on that 2nd disc. Anyone know? I'm hoping Shout Factory does a great job with the new blu-ray release. A commentary track with John Carpenter and Kurt Russell would be awesome!

There was definitely a DVD version with the Carpenter/Russell commentary track as I've listened to it. I just realized the Blu Ray doesn't even have that, good thing I've never gone back to listen to it.

I bought my copy in late June. That's why I said it was announced right after.
