Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol streets on April 17th.
Since Paramount released the IMAX version of Revenge of the Fallen, I have hope. I wonder if it'll be a retailer exclusive like Transformers 2? Maybe that's why they didn't mention it in their press release. Personally, I loved Ghost Protocol. I can't wait to pick it up!
Yeah, so Paramount MAY get this edition right (have to wait until the review so I know how long the "special features" run), but what about the first movies? When can we expect the whole series with DTS-HD or Lossless sound and remastered picture? And while I'm dreaming the impossible, why not a whole new set of special features?
So does that mean a rerelease is on the horizon? More importantly, if there is going to be a rerelease of this movie, does this mean the first three films will also have a rerelease and a proper one at that with high def picture and sound and with all the special features?
Yeah, it should work as a standalone, although some knowledge of the third movie is kinda helpful for certain portions (nothing too crucial, though, I'm pretty sure they structured this one as a quasi-reboot anyway, sorta the way Incredible Hulk was).
