I have been beaten to the punch yet again! I just spotted that over at AintItCool too!
Breaking news ...new 5.1 sound ... See dons interview with entertaiment weekly ... Blue ray and possible movie theater 1st or second quarter( late first at the earliest) my inside sources say LA and Austin for the big screen on a limited basis.....resto is gonna kick...taking this to the next level.....2016 will go down at the greatest year for Phans....and on Phan 5 you will not be disappointed...
I planted a seed in Coscarelli's head (and in Baldwin's and Thornbury's, etc) at the Flashback Convention here in Chicago the other year. At least I hope I did. They all liked my idea. I asked them (Coscarelli especially) about releasing a special disc with all of cut footage from the original Phantasm, outtakes, behind the scene material, etc. In other words, every single minute of Phantasm that's ever been filmed that we've never seen before. I know they had hours of extra material we've never seen. I explained that there was no need to remaster it in HD or anything. Just transfer raw footage to DVD. That would be cheap enough to be worth it, and what true Phantasm phan would not jump on such a DVD at any price? Hell, they could slap a $100 price tag on it and I'd be pre-ordering it!
I hope that idea stuck in his head and that we end up seeing it.

So for anyone keeping up, here's what's been changed to the 4K remaster so far:
-New sphere in some shots (practical effect, not CGI) -Yellow paint bucket removed in one scene (though it can still be seen to the naked eye) -Fishing line digitally remove when sphere impales the Tall Man's assistant (it should be noted that the black dot on the sphere in the next shot is still present despite the released preview image) -And this I noticed today; the scene where Michael puts his hand in a box at the fortune teller's house and struggles to get it out while her granddaughter tells him "Don't fear." zooms in slowly shot after shot until he gets his hand free.
secret007: What I read was Lionsgate confirms SAW: Legacy will be released October 27, 2017. Filming begins September 12, 2016. James Wan is executive producer. Directors are Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig. The story will take place 7 years later.

secret007: Sorry about the last message being off-topic. I just came from a SAW forum and my mind was still there. I forgot momentarily I had logged onto Phantasm. I can't wait to see Phantasm: Ravager.

postmortem: Hello, everyone. Looks like the reason I couldn't log in for so long was that I was trying to use Safari with no luck. Firefox works, though. Thanks, Dustin, for the tip! :-D
