Default Any restoration for BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA Blu-ray Aug 4 ?

I mean, this is the greatest eighties movie, better than anything else out of there. I just hope there will be a MASSIVE restoration, and we'll get the definitive, absolute edition.
Who cares about James Bond?
We need a restored JACK BURTON instead!

Darn, I was hoping you were asking about the movie Big Trouble with Tim Allen.

...the OP knows it's coming out, so this isn't a wish...

Just wanting the best release possible...which I agree with

Really hope this is a great release and I can't wait to watch it again, especially this so called extended cut...

To the OP - I don't really think this movie requires the "massive" restoration you think it does. It's been kept in pretty good shape (it's not THAT old) and was cleaned up a few years back for DVD. From all accounts, the new blu-ray should look pretty solid.

Ben Ricci,

I JUST know that JACK BURTON is my Elvis Presley. In my book, he is the most perfect being in the whole universe. This must be one hell of a BD edition.

Default JACK BURTON Vs. MEGATRON

Jack Burton: reflexes, dumb luck, trademarked knife and gun... and the usual six demon bag-induced sense of excitement.

Megatron: big, silly, dumb Transformer from a Michael Bay movie.

I think Megatron will be over in a matter of minutes.

LOL comment fail

some site had a side by side comparison of the DVD and the BD....it is GORGEOUS. They really did this movie justice with the transfer. I seriously cannot wait for August 4th.

Remastering for sure... just wondering if they did some restoration too.

Does someone know if the 2001 DVD was a success? I've heard it was a big hit in the DVD sales department.

As mentioned earlier, I don't think a restoration was even remotely necessary for this film. It was not in bad shape, and had already been cleaned up not too long ago.

The 2001 DVD was a pretty popular seller, indeed.

History check, was there a previous DVD version in 1997/2000? I just don't remember...

I must add that the 2001-2006 REGION 2 Special Edition DVD sucks in comparison. I'm talking about picture quality.
