Paramount and Universal have produced a new master in the last couple of months, and the movie is rumoured to be getting a new blu-ray release later this year.

Much was made of the disastrous transfer the current blu-ray received, where edge enhancement and digital noise reduction rendered the film looking worse than its DVD counterpart.

Wait for the apology later this year.
