I'd suggest the Predator/Predator 2 (pre "Ultimate" Edition) double-pack and then buy Predators separately.

I've got the Dub pack, still yet to watch Pred 2 all the way through though yet. I was considering buying the Ulimate hunter ed the other night but then i pulled myself away from the idea. Might still get it one day though.

3D edition of Predator has been announced -link

While I'm sure most won't be bothered about the 3D what it could mean is that this finally gets a decent transfer. Although, this being Fox I won't hold my breath.

Why?

Really, why?

It's a classic as is. Give it a really good transfer on blu-ray and more people will buy it than will buy it for ret-con 3D.

Because 3D sucks balls.

Still, as said, we may get a good transfer

It'll be the DNR'ed-to-**** 'Ultimate' version in 3D, I guarantee.

([edit] But if it is actually a brand new transfer, I'll be first in line. )

Saw the teaser poster yesterday and hoped it was a sequel.

I ******* despise 3D and avoided the last blu-ray, so this is a non-news event for me!

The best current version is that one but it does not have any extras.

Hunter vs the old release

The predator 3D one will still be available to watch in 2D and have a new video transfer.

Thanks for that, I can't really tell a difference from that pic to be honest.

They look like the Region A's in that pic , whats the quality like of this one

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Predator-Ult...edator+blu+ray

Would it be worth hanging on for the 3D blu ray maybe ?

There should be a massive difference in that pic as it shows the waxy look of the hunter edition.

The old release is a mpeg2 codec and has plenty of grain but it looks better in motion.

The ultimate edition is the UK version of the US Hunter edition.

I would wait for the Predator 3D and see how it is in 2D.

Apparently they are doing a proper remaster of Predator for the upcoming 3D/2D version, so this one should look the best hopefully. We'll see...

I have only double dipped once on blu ray and this will probably be my second time.

Some people on the Blu-ray.com forum have received the 3D edition and are reporting it's the same waxy transfer as the Ultimate Hunter Edition for both 2D and 3D versions.
Oh well, maybe they'll give it a proper remaster for the 30th Anniversary in 2017.

Look out for paintery trails, which are the artefacts from DNR processing.

Time to dig up this thread with some new info. On August 17th, they're getting a theatrical showing of a new 2K restored print of Predator.
