How come? Who holds the rights? because I´ve been holding on to buy it, just waiting for that special edition to come out

The Blade Runner 3 disc edition is never going to happen read this.

When "Blade Runner" was being shot in the early 1980's, Bud Yorkin, a veteran television comedy producer, and Jerry Perenchio, now the C.E.O. of Univision, were the film's bond-completion guarantors.

When the film went over budget, by contract they assumed ownership of the film.  They hated the film, had bitter disputes with Mr. Scott and tried to take it away from him altogether.

The studio release, in 1982, contained superfluous narration and a tacked-on rosy ending. Mr. Scott removed both when he was allowed to make a "director's cut" in 1992, but it was, by his own account, a rush job.

Three years ago, Mr. Scott announced that he was working on a three-disc box set, which would offer all the versions of the film, including a new and polished director's cut with previously unseen footage and scads of bonus features. Then, at the end of 2001, Warner Brothers, which was planning to distribute the discs, pulled the plug.

It did so, according to a producer who worked on the project, because Mr. Perenchio gave no sign that he would let them be released.

Mr. Perenchio, speaking through an assistant, had no comment on the situation. (Warner Brothers still sells the 1992 "director's cut," though the picture quality is mediocre.)"

The ownership rights are so messed up that I really have no idea exactly what that could include or how much better of a transfer they might be able to achieve without further permissions.

If you are so inclined, you might want to sign a petition to Jerry Perenchio about letting the full BR:SE happen.

I personally think it is more likely to piss him off than have any positive effect.

I've been planning on picking up "Blade Runner" (they never seem to have it at my store) but I know that as soon as I do, the rights will be settled and the new 3 disc definitive will come out (or be announced).

The remaining Beatles films ("Help!", "Magical Mystery Tour" and "Let It Be" ) MMT isn't the greatest, but it would be nice to have them all up on the shelf.

I guess I'm the thread killer. Whenever I have the last post, and no one responds within 3 days, it goes to the big thread in the sky. Laugh

Anyways, I bought "Blade Runner", if you ignore the dream it's actually better than the original. And to me, the video quality isn't all that bad (I don't have all that fancy Hi Def stuff so it may be less apparent to me). So if they announce the 3 discer coming out, you can thank me (see above post, I have that much bad luck, lol)

Good luck on those. They're both in a vice of legal entanglements. I do think we'll see Batman before The Twilight Zone though. If I was a betting man I'd guess if the Twilight Zone does come out, it would be bare bones only.

Batman/Batman Returns
Where are my Tim Burton "Batman" SEs? I thought for sure they'd release them for the theatrical release of "Batman Begins".
I'd also like to see the original versions of "Batman Forever" and "Batman & Robin" they were apparently a bit darker than what was released.

Odd, I've heard nothing of these releases. Are they Special Editions or just marked down in price versions of the snapper/flippers?
