It’s very odd that a movie as big as The Abyss has practically skipped a generation on home media. I’d really like to know what happened there. But it’s finally going to come out of the woodwork.
“We’ve done a wet-gate 4K scan of the original negative, and it’s going to look insanely good,” Jim Cameron says. “We’re going to do an authoring pass in the DI for Blu-ray and HDR at the same time.”
He said to expect that some time early next year. In the meantime, the 30th anniversary “Aliens” DVD/Blu-ray hits shelves Sept. 13.
Following that closely will be a 3D version of Terminator 2: Judgement Day (not to be confused with T2:3D) in October. One question though, does this mean True Lies is also getting the remaster treatment?
