Both Alien vs Predator Movies See Blu-ray Release

Posted February 14, 2008 12:55 PM by Josh Dreuth

20th Century FoxFox Home Entertainment has announced that they will release 'Alien vs Predator: Requiem' for Blu-ray on April 15th, day-and-date with the DVD release. Additionally, Fox will reissue the original 'Alien vs Predator' movie on the same day as a Unrated Collector's Edition release. Fans will have the choice of purchasing the films separately (for those who don't want to upgrade their existing 'Alien vs Predator' Blu-ray) or as a two-pack.

'Alien vs Predator: Requiem' will present both the rated and unrated versions of the film via seamless branching in 2.35:1 1080p AVC on a BD-50. Audio will come via a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track. Extras include audio commentaries, digital copy, five behind-the-scenes featurettes, and seven still design galleries. Exclusive to the Blu-ray release is the "Weyland-Yutani Archives" picture-in-picture reference guide which allows viewers access into the movie-based corporation's top-secret computer mainframe to discover information on all things Alien and Predator. This feature will require use of a BonusView player or PS3.

Specs for 'Alien vs Predator Unrated Collector's Edition' have not been released at this time, but we do know that this film will feature the "Alien vs Predator vs You" game we reported during CES. We'll be sure to update this post when we receive the specs for this release.

Hmm, the current version is the unrated one anyway, is it not?
I have it and I'm pretty sure it's unrated.

Hope this comes out in the UK (the boxset) as I will have to purchase. Though Fox titles here are ridiculously expensive, the cheapest you get them online is around £24 ($40+). And as Fox seem to want to region code their discs I can't get them from the US, bugger!

One of the reasons I've kept my AvP DVD is because it has a ton of extras that weren't on the blu-ray, so I'll be glad to double dip on this title, even if it's not the best film in the series.

Like someone else already said, if AvP gets a new transfer I'll double-dip on that one, otherwise I'll just be picking up AvP: Requiem. Anyway, great news. Looking forward to seeing Requiem since I missed it in the theater and it's great that they're providing both rated/unrated versions with seamless branching. Should satisfy everyone that way.

I thought the first AVP Blu ray was unrated also. Actually now that I'm thinking about it I think the first Blu ray was the rated R version as the SD DVD was PG13. Damn depending on the quality and the extras I just might double dip . Hate giving in to that b/c I refuse to pick up Live Free or Die Hard until an unrated version is released.

I want to know more about this "rerelease" of the original AVP. In the end it might depend on the cost of the 2 movie pack vs. just buying Requiem. I DO not need another version of AVP. However If it's getting a brand new transfer etc. etc. It might be worth a few extra dollars to pick up the pack.

incorrect kuliddar. As has been previously stated in these comments, The current blu-ray version has both the current Theatrical and the Unrated DVD release. So that later you refer to is already on the current Blu-ray version.

Unfortunately I don't see companies ever stopping the double dip. If this gets a an MPEG 4 transfer & better PQ, then I'll upgrade.

Ok I'm confused. Why do I keep seeing 101minutes on all online retailers I see+on the box? I should be seeing 108minutes for the unrated edition. So what you are saying is that the unrated version on the current blu disc is 108minutes?

kuliddar I don't know why that is either, But as with other reviews if you search around, most will tell you it constains both the 101 version and the 108 version. If you want me to take a picture (cellphone) of the runtime of the two versions playing I can do that. But I guess at this point it's pointless right? If there is indeed a Newer version coming out might as well just pass on the previous release regardless of it having the unrated version already.

I can't wait for April 24. That's when Requiem comes out in Australia. I like to believe that the first AVP never existed. Though I may pick it up when I see it heavily discounted at stores....and when I am completely drunk.

two shite films released on the same day, yippee!!! If fox wanna grace us with any aliens lets plough revenue into getting the first two out on Blu, even the third in its re-edited version is good, even if to see where young director david Fincher was heading. But really, AVP AVPR?

Note that a Collector's Edition reissue of the original 'Alien vs Predator' has also been reported for Blu-ray release on April 15; asked to confirm those reports this morning, a Fox rep said they were "not true."

I'm all for the remaster and release of all the BD-25 mpg2 transfers as BD-50. The extra room for better encodes and features is why I bought into Blu. Thankfully I hadn't picked up AVP yet

Indeed, Stuart_Larkin - I'll wait for the newest edition then since it's been announced. Kinda glad I thought the original BR release was only the theatrical cut. I won't have to double dip hehe.

Yeah there is going to be a lot of double dipping. It's always been like this for DVD anyways (I can't remember how many versions of Evil Dead, Army of Darkess or Halloween released (one every 6 months I think LOL)

"If you look at it from a purely technical side, HD DVD was perhaps slightly superior compared with Blu-ray," said Checchia.

The key to Sony's success this time around was that its chief executive Howard Stringer, a former head of the company's North America division, drew on his Hollywood contacts to drum up support for Blu-ray.

Blu-ray's success was also helped by its inclusion in Sony's PlayStation 3 video-game machine.

With Blu/hd only being 1% of the market, good luck at defeating DVD when most people with a good upconverter cant tell the difference between blu/hd and dvd except the videophiles ?

Sony only won because they were able to monopolize the market, once they got the majority
of the studios it was only time until the retailers fell into place. It was all about the money no one really cared about the consumer or letting them have a choice in the matter ?
But thats right, blu won because of you guys ^o)
