20th Century Fox Predator Trilogy (1987-2010) 4K UHD

http://thedigitalbits.com/columns/my...ts/052318-1500

Quote:
This just in: Retail and industry sources are now telling us that 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment is going to be releasing John McTiernan’s original Predator (1987) on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray later this year, likely in August, to support the September theatrical release of the new Shane Black sequel film The Predator. We’ve updated our 4K Ultra HD Release List accordingly.

We don’t have any additional information on this yet (this is NOT an officially announced title yet), but fans will know that this film has been plagued by terrible transfers on disc over the years. The original 2008 Blu-ray release was decent, though the 2010 Ultimate Hunter Edition Blu-ray (which included all the legacy special features) was a flat-out disaster of epic proportions, with so much of the film’s fine detail and grain texture removed through the excessive use of DNR (digital noise reduction) that it was unwatchable.

Fox certainly already knows this, but it’s worth saying regardless: The studio could score massive points with fans of the film if the 4K remastered package included a new and properly-remastered Blu-ray edition of the film as well… one with all those good special features too in one package. Fingers crossed.

FYI, the 1987 film is called Predator.

The Predator is the name of the upcoming reboot-quel.

Also the product listings for all three previous Predator films have been floating around for months now.

It's Fox so I bet there will be a boxset in the US, thankfully.

Give me a great 4k transfer. Anything else is a bonus. But the 4k must be good.

Definitely down for a 3-pack. I find all three existing movies entertaining, even though the first is obviously the best.

Might just get the first on its own at some point, I think BD will suffice for 2 and Predators. Still haven't seen the second one despite owning it lol

If Fox gives this the same treatment that they gave the 4K blu-ray for Die Hard, then all past shortcomings will be forgiven.

Will this release be an Alabama Tick or a Sexual Tyrannosaurus? The ball is in your court Fox.

So Fox is well aware of the disastrous home media versions of Predator yet we have to keep our fingers crossed that they'll rescan it properly? If Fox screws this up again can there be any excuse?

Predator 2 on BD also suffers from DNR. Would be nice if they could correct this on UHD eventually too.
