It seems to be the philosophy of studios to keep re-releasing movies with more extras. This time though, there is more meat. Ridley Scott has edited Blade Runner one last time, to produce “The Final Cut”. There will be a low-cost two-disc Special Edition, and a full-bore 5 disc Ultimate Collector’s Edition complete with a “Deckard Briefcase”. The versions are expected to be out on December 18th. Limited Edition Blu-ray and HD-DVD releases of the Ultimate Collector’s Edition are expected as well, as well as a 4 disc “Collector’s Edition”.
Guess the long-standing rumors of the upcoming J.J. Abrams Star Trek movie being about a younger Kirk and Spock were true. Both Zachary Quinto (Syler in Heroes) and Leonard Nimoy were made an appearance at Comic-Con, with Quinto cast in the role of the younger Spock, and Nimoy also appearing in the film. Kirk is still to be cast, but Abrams did say William Shatner will likely have a role. Production should begin in December.
