Oh no! Another James Cameron dip.
Wonder if it's merely a repackaged disc with some extra materials packed in. Between the cover art concept and the extras packed in it, I like the overall product. Will be watching this one closely. Camel^3 tracker enabled!

I'm sure it's the exact same Blu-ray from before, just with bulky packaging and some physical swag crammed in the box.

They know consumers are as gullible and uneducated as the "scientists" from Prometheus

If Fox had a movie club like Disney does that would be a reality.

If a pre-order of "True Lies" went up on Amazon for $99, I'd reserve mine immediately. I don't care what bonus features, I just want the movie.


As for this rerelease...I'm a huge 'Aliens' fan, so we'll see what content is included....

From all appearances, this looks exactly like the Alien: 35th Anniversary Edition, which was just a repackaging of the older Blu-ray in a fancy box filled with trinkets (art cards and such). It had no new content, unless you count the knickknacks in the box as "content."

Ouch...knickknacks can be tempting...but it sounds like I may skip this release.

Unless, color timing is addressed. It's certainly got more teal over time.
