Good news! A newly remastered edition is about to be released in Germany (out December 20th). Its from a small independent label called "Subkultur Entertainment". They released some obsurce little gems on DVD so far, but quality was always good (and always "true to the source", e.g. not DNR smearing and the likes). So i'm confident the blu-ray will be good, too

Technical Specs are 1.85:1 (1080p) Transfer with Englisch & German Tracks in PCM Mono (so again no fancy upmix, just the original soundmix). It will be Dual Layered BD-50 for max. Bitrate

Extras include "THE EPHEMEROL DIARIES: An Interview with Stephen Lack", Original Trailers, an isolated Music & Effects Track (finally all the Scanner sounds can be sampled ), Sildeshows, and an audiocommentary be german film expert Marcus Stigelegger...

Accoring to Torsten Kaiser (from TLEFilms Film Restoration) its the HD Master from MGM. This screenshots was posted on facebook (->http://s1.directupload.net/file/d/3045/evppjf2a_jpg.htm). I think they just want to assure that we are getting the propper HD treatment this time, after the disastrous frist release by Black Hill.

The first screenshots have been released and they look indeed VERY promising







Pre-Order is already up at ofdb.de (amazon will follow soon, i guess)

There is BD/DVD Combo in Digipak for 24,98€ (including a Booklet, in german)
http://www.ofdb.de/view.php?page=fas...=386&vid=41607

and Single BD in an Elite Case for 16,98€
http://www.ofdb.de/view.php?page=fas...=386&vid=41608

The screenshots look excellent! Does anyone know what region the Blu-ray will be? Does Subkultur Entertainment region lock?

Hard to say, it's their first Blu-ray release. But the (preliminary) backcover states region B only.

The label just released a remastered (german) HD Trailer on Youtube

http://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=88b4H0_VfbU

No word on region coding, yet.

BTW: According to Subkultur, the Limited Edition is already sold out from the distributor, meaning that all available units will be in circulation at release day.

My copy from Amazon.de arrived yesterday! I can confirm that the image and sound-quality are very impressive. Finally Scanners gets the release it deserved.

Strange, mine hasn't even been shipped, yet.

Likewise. I ordered as soon as I saw those screen shots. Its a looong time ago but I swear they look better than when I saw the film on first release

Ofdb Shop is shipping and they have units in stock, people already received their discs all over the place. Due to "christmas mayhem", amazon might have troubles keeping up.

What's the difference between 1 and 2 two disc BDs? Is it just the DVD copy which is included in the 2 disc Limited edition.

The 2 Disc limited is in a Digipack and has a booklet (I suppose in German) while the single disc only is in a normal keepcase.
