    The rumour is X-Files season one will get released first , if it sells then they will release the other seasons , if it doesn't then no more X-Files on Blu , but then again that did could from Bluray.com.

    True Lies & The Abyss are bound to get a worldwide release, so I wouldn't worry.

    In any case, Fox have released many catalogue titles region free.

    Ok, I'll try not to worry! Thanks.

    As others have said, let's get an actual release of any sort first!

    When they will finally get released on Blu they are bound to be released everywhere. It's not exactly like they are obscure films.

    Yes they do , you should all know now that without a slip the film is not the same , the story has more plot holes as well if it not lenticular , if it not embossed then you only get Dolby digital on the soundtrack and lose the HD track(slipcovers bin them don't collect them)

    I know but Fox have in the past had a habit of making us wait for older releases.

    Castaway
    Point Break
    Last of the Mohican

    I would say none of theses were obscure films

    :)

    Wasn't Point Break distributed by other companies than Fox in some places?

    Castaway is released by Paramount in the UK.
    Mohican & Point Break are Warner in UK.

    So not really Fox making us wait.

    Well so far all of Cameron's recent BD releases have been worldwide
    Eg
    Avatar, Titanic 3D, Aliens, remastered Terminator, even Skynet Terminator 2.

    So with any luck, True Lies & Abyss will be worldwide (IF it comes out :D)

    I've just realised, with dismay, that if there is a UK Region B version of The Abyss, it's bound to have the rat scene cut. Again.

    Anyone know what the censors' position on that scene was in other Region B countries?

    The German DVD was uncut, so worst comes to worst, you can always get the German BD.

    Can the moderators start issuing bans to anyone who digs up this thread WITHOUT concrete release info? :devil: Every time I see this thread get bumped I always get really excited that maybe something's been announced...but I'm always left disappointed :rotfl:

    Or perhaps moderators can change the thread title to "True Lies & The Abyss - nothing to see here..." until we have some evidence to the contrary? :D

    Yeah. No more lies - unless they are true. If they are lies they get thrown in the forum abyss! ;)

    Here are the facts:

    I feel like an old b'tard if next year is the 25th anniversary of The Abyss
