I have a different take, and disagree. He is not just passing through information. His problem is that in order for him to continue to pass off some semblance of being connected to Hollywood and some legitimacy, he always adds something like "And my sources at the studio can confirm this is true."

So when it doesnt come to pass...he's kind of left looking like a buffoon. Most people have long seen through this. Back in the heyday of home video he was connected. But we are long past that, and hes just trying to hang on.

More responsible reporting would be something like "Well, here we go again. James Cameron for the 50th time has said it coming in an interview. This just right after he said no later than March. What a mess. Nobody seems to know what the heck is going on, and you shouldn't believe a word this guy says. But I am just passing it along for those who missed it and for which hopes springs eternal. Is it coming. Probably? Maybe? But I have nothing else to offer you except that I am with you and hope it's coming."

^^^ People would respect that...I think. I know I would.

I don“t know if it has been posted before, but there was a Q&A with The Abyss“s DP Mikael Salomon back in 2019. They watched The Abyss in 70mm. I wish I could have been there:-(

At around 25:50 min he was asked about a Digital Version / Blu Ray of the Movie.

I don't think Cameron wants True Lies to get a new release. I suspect that he regrets doing it in the first place for reasons that I probably shouldn't go into on here. There are jokes and things that reflect another era in which he doesn't want to have in his films now. He is weaker version of SS now. It is making him a lot of money at the moment. His movies are so pandering now. His simpleton pandering and the whole bloated nature of his films now just rubs me the wrong way.

I mean, the Cameron-approved master of the theatrical has been out for years on multiple streaming and pay channel sites, as well as YouTube for a bit... we've ALL seen it.

As big of a twatnozzle as that guy is, at least he’s actually right some of the time and certainly seems to have connections at Lionsgate or StudioCanal.

Thanks rubystone356.

Interesting, will it be the OG audiotrack?

1989| 171mins| USA | (15) | 2.35:1 | Dolby Stereo

Dirt In The Gate Movies proudly present James Cameron's 1989 Special Edition version of THE ABYSS. Sent to recover nuclear weapons from a sunken U.S. submarine, a team of deep-sea oil riggers and Navy Seals discovers alien life in this thrilling adventure. Underperforming at the box-office upon its theatrical release, THE ABYSS remains a critical success and major technical achievement. Cameron’s extended cut plays up its cold war context and restores his intended ending.

Don't miss this rare chance to catch it from 35mm for one day only.

Tickets £10

Now we just need an announcement at this point.
That dude has to have his own website to post on. If he posted his stuff on twitter it'd get fact check warnings... :P

He actually posts that kind of stuff on twitter twice, once from his personal account, and another from his Digital Bits account.

That being said, the only thing more depressing than not having The Abyss on 4K is watching this forum constantly rag on James Cameron and Bill Hunt

It's not that Bunt is a bad person, it's more to do with his 21st century irrelevance as his "deep bench" of industry sources is a bad joke at this point - through no fault of his own, I might add - and his technical knowledge is significantly flawed, not that someone isn't allowed to get things wrong but it's when their followers accept it as gospel that it makes me do a sad.

Can you point me to some real examples of this that aren't the Cameron film controversies? I'm genuinely curious as to why people think this

He rarely posts any actual 'scoops' for new releases, and by that I mean news that actually beats anyone else to the punch, as people on forums like this one are constantly scoping out retail listings for new titles and getting there ahead of Bunt's "deep bench" of retail sources by a day or two. Hell, most of the time he even says that it's Bits readers who are informing him OF these retail listings. He might get one or two of his own, sure, but even that DiscFather douchnozzle has proven to have had more reliable contacts than him. About the only thing he does keep insisting is coming is The Abyss and True Lies, which he's been doing for like a decade or whatever. I'm sure he'll be "proven" right eventually.

As for tech knowledge, he's obsessed with "master interpositives" being part of the modern transfer process (that's generally a no) and the outright lie that the LOTRs and Hobbitses were rebuilt in 4K is a stain on his reputation quite frankly. He was fed that information, sure, or perhaps misinterpreted it himself, as nowhere else does it say they were rebuilt, not even in the Warners press blurb for those releases, but that he doesn't have the wit to challenge that orthodoxy is just mind blowing to me. For someone regarded as a Blu-ray tech guru he does a lot of guessing and incorrect interpretation and blatant 'made it up himself' kinds of comments.
