Default Alien Trilogy News!

Noticeably Alien Resurrection's not mentioned, but without the fourth it's a stronger story anyway!

Quote:
We learned of some very interesting news that has me jumping for joy. We discovered that Fox Home Entertainment is currently working on brand new Blu-ray releases for Alien, Aliens and Alien 3. Each film is said to be released in a new special edition set with brand new special features made just for these releases! The only concern I have is Fox's lackluster Blu-ray releases, where the quality looks like a simple up-convert as opposed to a brand new transfer (see Predator, Commando, Donnie Darko and numerous others). No release date has been set, but I'm praying we see this before year's end.

Yeah, they better put the proper work into this one. I'd be interested in own the first three(the third isn't great but thanks to David Fincher, visually it's very striking and sets the perfect tone.)

Ill be excited as long as they include ALL of the previous dvd features. Anything less is NO SALE.

I especially mean that they had better include both cuts of Alien 3.

Honestly for me the only pure Aliens films that exist are 1 & 2, period. Aliens was suppposed to end the series, Ripply was supposed to come home... Then fox wanted more money and we get 3 & 4

So I kind of wish I could buy that with out 3, but oh well... If I have to get 3 in order to get Alien and Aliens I'll deal.

Amen.

The Quadrilogy was packed. We don't need any more special features.

This would be outstanding. Star Trek, Indiana Jones and Alien(s)
I suspect the transfers should be top notch, this is a grade A release and Fox knows how to do a decent transfer when they want to. These certainly won't be MPEG2 BD25s like the dumpy releases mentioned in the original article.
