Default THE ABYSS: SPECIAL EDITION 4K UHD - An Open Letter To James Cameron

Dear James,

THE ABYSS: SPECIAL EDITION 4K UHD with Dolby Atmos and all the bells and whistles. It's time, man. Next year marks the 30th anniversary and a supreme deluxe edition would be a Godsend to a lot of fans, myself included. A new pristine transfer with the remastered sound mix, personally overseen by you. Dude, it's LOOOOONG overdue. We're all eager to see the new AVATAR films but there's a jewel in your crown that has gathered a lot of dust and it's time to polish it up and put it on front street.

Please. You the man.

P.S. And while you're kicking around the Vault, TRUE LIES is also AWOL for a Blu-ray debut. Just sayin'.

I would add this:

"But if you're planning on giving it the T2 treatment like you recently did, then never mind and disregard all of the above."

I would rather have The Abyss and True Lies on 4K or even blu-ray over any more Avatar movies by a long shot.

P.S. True Lies will NEVER get a Blu-ray debut...No 25th Anniversary 4k...no HD streams.
Jus sayin.

(Unless you can get modern CGI to turn the bad guys into straight white Catholics from Montana)

It already has HD masters available: D-Theater VHS and HD Broadcast.

There were also new special features created for the 20th anniversary which are in a vault.

Lastly, that thing about the muslim terrorists was actually a bad joke by Tom Arnold. Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan has Middle Eastern terrorists in the primary story.

All Fox has to do if put on a disclaimer message before the movie opens. It's pretty easy to do if they ever wanted to do a 4K UHD Blu-ray or Blu-ray release of True Lies.

Funny you mentioned Jack Ryan with Paramount just releasing the 4K UHD Blu-ray set of all Jack Ryan films.

I don't get why The Abyss still has no Blu-ray release same with True Lies.

If these aren't released by the time the Avatar sequel comes out than it's clear Fox or Cameron has the two films buried.

The reason depends on who you ask:

James Cameron has final approval on the masters and according to Fox, they are waiting for him to provide it.

Cameron says Fox is the problem but he did admit to stalling on approval of the final masters.

Maybe a chance of The Abyss in 2019 according to an interview with James Cameron.

https://www.empireonline.com/movies/...bnRY5fSO-coyU/

Quote:
“Man, it’s on my to-do list,” Cameron admitted. “It’s a question of time-management. True Lies and The Abyss both have Blu-ray transfers that are complete for my review. The problem is the next 14 hours when I have to go back and trim the color and get each one perfect. That’s 28 hours. I don’t have 28 hours.” He added that he’s hoping to take a look at them before 2019 arrives: “I’ve put it on my list to try to get it done before the end of the year.”

And how long has he been saying this year after year. I'll believe it when I see it.

James, just sleep one less hour per night and within a month you'll have it completed. See how easy it was to find 28 hours.

According to Empire both movies will be completed on the blu-ray format, 4K was not mentioned, for a 2019 release but as everyone has quoted here - time management is holding the process up. 30th anniversary for the Abyss and 25th anniversary for True Lies for next year....well here's hoping.

It would be idiotic if they skipped a UHD. Guess we’ll see.

I guess at least it's on his radar.

JC just has no semblance of time. He has frittered almost two decades of his life on Avatar, he won't live forever! He needs to get his classics out on BD and 4K, all of them, you do have 28 hours, just let your assistant handle Avatar for a couple of days!

I have some doubts we'll ever see True Lies, but I hope I'm wrong. You guys can probably Google it, but I remember reading an interview where he said (I'm paraphrasing) something to the effect that he was "embarrassed about the movie because of racial stereotypes, it makes light of a terrorist attack, including a nuke, etc...in a post Sept. 11, 2001 world."

I just have this feeling that he, as someone with left leaning politics, would rather "forget" he ever made that movie. Just a hunch. Again, I would love to be wrong.

The cast and crew already participated in retrospective interviews for a cancelled 20th anniversary Blu-ray but Cameron was not available to deliver final approval on the release.

As for that quote, it is part of a badly delivered joke from Tom Arnold. Cameron is not embarrassed by his work (well, maybe Piranha II); he’s just too busy to sit down and approve True Lies, The Abyss, and the 4K release for Avatar.
