    This thread isn't necessarily for new DVD releases, but for re-releases that add extra content. If a movie I want comes out on DVD "bare-bones," I usually won't buy it in expectation of a better edition later on. Sometimes I know that there is a better edition planned, but not always.

    Here are some upcoming releases that I'm really looking forward to.

    The Shawshank Redemption Deluxe Limited Edition
    Goodfellas 2-Disc Special Edition

    And of course...

    They don't really matter to me, but extra stuff can do no real harm :D

    &
    Badder Santa

    I love my special edition DVDs. I'm a DVD extra whore, can't get enough (especially commentaries).
    Although when they release a fairly good disc then a few months later release a "special edition" that's really annoying (like Underworld and so forth), unless they've announced it before the original is release (LOTR, Hellboy etc)

    Return of the King is currently rumored to be scheduled for a December release, only some of the extra scenes have been revealed so far

    I believe its 10 discs for Matrix Trilogy, although the rumor of the extra 55 minutes of Enter the Matrix footage cut into reloaded is apparently not true

    I'm sure that RoTK will be late November or early December. It's been late November for the previous two. There is nearly an extra hour of footage that will be included on the extended version... I'm really excited! :D

    Yeah, they made fun of that box set on VH1's "Best Week Ever." That movie is not deserving of such an edition. :p

    Got Star Wars on pre-order :p
    Working my way thru the shield season 2 at the moment.
    Trying to figure out how I can watch Smallville Season 2 without having to pay £35 for it - but haven't seen it for rental.

    mm, I'd like to pick up that Goodfellas release. Better than the first, original packaging it came with a few years back (double sided dvd?).

    I still have my starwars VHS box thing from ages ago, would be nice to replace it with something flashier. The Martix package is very desirable though :)

    I agree with pretty much everything you said onimkron. :)

    @Speedy - Not a big Hellraiser fan, but that's a pretty sweet edition! :D
