    Hi,
    The recent T2 release,if i'm not mistaken ,has an even better THX special promo film ,aka the region one edition.
    There is also a French website that you can download all the dolby / THX clips known to man. maybe someone can remember this for you.
    Regards. Roger the Lodger

    SW:TPM has the latest cinema trailer which is similar to that on T:2

    The toy Story Ultimate Box Set has both THX TEX trailers.R1.

    And i remember reading that there is a new demo disc out on R1 with all known trailers, along with dvd trailers for FOX. I think i saw this at the digital bit's site.

    He did specify region two THX1138.

    Yeah Terminator2 R2 has a special THX 'fanfare'. It starts with a pool of liquid metal like the T1000 gradually coalescing into a silver thx logo. Sound wise, you hear 'liquidy' sounds, and the beginning of the terminator theme ( without the thumping beat ) which morphs into the THX fanfare. There is also the piano DTS theme and the new water DD5.1 theme.

    I didn't purchase the Phantom Menace but did rent it and if I remember correctly it was the 'plain vanilla' THX fanfare.

    I was looking forward to getting my hands on a disc with the THX optimode feature on it for fine tuning sound and picture. I was disappointed when it wasn't included on the region 2 Toy Story ultimate edition but thrilled when I heard it would be on T2 and TPM. I still ended up disappointed though as I was under the impression that sound wise there would be new THX fanfares or surround effects to impress my mates with. No such luck. There was just a white noise test. Sure my amp has that! The picture optimisation section was much more comprehensive but just my luck, I couldn't use that either. The bloddy menu screens used to change the picture settings on my Sony FX20 fill most of the screen, obscuring the test screens!!!:mad:

    Sorry i thought he was after THX logos any region.

    And NO the phantom menance R2 (which i own) has the new THX cinema trailer. This is a rain storm with thunder in the background which then bursts onto the screen in a flash of lightening and water on the ground which the same as T2 morphs into the THX logo.
