I'm trying to find the newest 2009 Lenticular Edition of the original Terminator on Blu-Ray but can't seem to find it on Amazon. Curious since the special 2009 Skynet Edition of T2 is available on the site. I don't want to purchase the one listed with the 2006 cover (Schwarzenegger) only to have to return it and ask for a refund. Any comments/answers? Thanks!
i would personally wait as there is talk of a new remastered version coming when slavtion hits bluray, i did buy the skynet t2 and t3 blurays though 35.00 for both is not bad and it is unliklely we will get a new version of 3 at all.
I wouldn't wait for a box set... because it's probably never going to happen. Here's why:
"The Terminator" was produced by Orion, which no longer exists. Their catalog was sold to MGM. MGM still holds the rights, but currently distribute its titles through Fox.
"Terminator 2" was produced by Carolco, which also folded, and sold its catalog to Live Entertainment, which later became Artisan Entertainment, which was later merged into Lionsgate.
"Terminator 3" was co-produced by several smaller companies including C-2 Pictures (a spin-off of Carolco) and Intermedia, none of which handle their own distribution. US distribution rights are licensed to Warner Bros, but internationally it's distributed by Sony.
Meanwhile, "Terminator Salvation" was produced by The Halcyon Company, and Wonderland Sound and Vision, and distributed by MGM in the United States and Columbia Pictures internationally.
So... in other words... you'll be waiting a long time (possibly FOREVER) to see a Terminator box set. Just buy them separately like the rest of us.
The newly remastered 'The Terminator' on blu-ray will arrive some time in 2010, not sure when, but currently it's waiting for James Cameron's approval prior to making copies from the master. Since Cameron has been busy with Avatar and all the publicity that comes with it, it might be awhile. But, it is supposed to be released next year, probably next to Avatar, this summer 2010. I'd wait, it will have a new cover and inserts most likely.
Hey guys, its 2010 now. Has there been a re-release of the Terminator on Blu-Ray yet? Let alone DVD? Because the 2009 Lenticular version is just the 2006 version with the Lenticular card tacked on, as Corey said. I heard a rumor that there is one with the special features intact, but I still wanna get a Lenticular Sleeve.
It is now 2013 and the Remastered edition has been released (currently $8 on Amazon?!) LOTS of complaints about this newest reincarnation. I'd like to read-up on the digital coding specs, I think I read coding is MPEG-4 vs MPEG-2? For one thing, Sound Effects have been changed, and have less punch! Now I haven't seen the Remastered edition myself, but I've read many posts which claim that the sound mix is just plan BAD, even if pic quality may be only somewhat improved. And apparently some of the original sound effects are updated, some in the flashbacks of the future, and some of the gunshots, etc. This may not be noticeable except to maybe some die hard fans, but I thought it was worth mentioning. I just picked up a used 2011 Digibook Limited Edition Blu-Ray version, which I will test out and report back on later, for anyone interested. Who knows, probably the same as the initial 2006 version... Stay Tuned!
