I did have the UK steelbook ordered, but the 20% off at HMV enable me to order the standard UK release for £8.80. I do like that German steel, though.

Yep it's true. Terminator is just too niche and unpopular a film to get a remastered version in N.A. No doubt the remaster is a Spain exclusive, all the other pre-orders in other regions are surely the US master.

It's been confirmed that the new remaster will also be available in the UK and Germany, so it's not just a Spanish exclusive.
Ask any question about Doctor Who and I'll be able to answer it?

I'm not sure how much better this film can look. Most of it was filmed at night and on a tiny budget. I wouldn't expect a massive difference over the old release. It would be nice if all the extras + some new ones were added to this release. And as always, I'm sure the US will receive the worst artwork and no steelbook.

Original audio... or no sale. Unfortunately this is one of the worst treated titles on home video thus far.

The Image Entertainment DVD was a dreadful transfer, the MGM special edition was an improvement but still not that great. The BD release is underwhelming and features only the 5.1 remixed audio with the INCORRECT sound effects sprinkled throughout the film -- which to any die-hard fan pulls you right out of the film.

I'm crossing my fingers. Either way, the covers shown are pretty awesome. Bottom left is my favorite.

I guess he was kind of ironic

Germany is definitely getting a remastered version as well!

Recently we informed you in advance exclusively on that 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment on 31 August 2012 finally James Cameron's sci-fi action flick "Terminator" (USA 1984), published by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the lead role, for the first time in this country in high definition on Blu-ray disc. Meanwhile, Fox has given all the details on Premiere HD and now it is known that fans can look forward to a very special release.
"Terminator" its Blu-ray debut is in a special edition Steelbook celebrate . On the Blu-ray disc contained the movie in a remastered version with German DTS-HD Master Audio is located 1.5 soundtrack. The bonus material will include some featurettes and deleted scenes in total 7. In detail, this information can now be found in our film-DB. Since the film is not indicated in the meantime, he will appear with a G-rating of 16 years to Blu-ray. The FSC logo, which must necessarily be placed on the front of the cover is, but then surely secured only through a sticker that can be removed after purchase.

Much better. There's a lot of issues the plague the original transfer that's just a result of a rushed restoration. It CAN look a lot better if done right (assuming this is the Lowry job, which my guess is - Yes).
