Cameron Says 4k ‘Abyss’ Finally Coming

It’s very odd that a movie as big as The Abyss has practically skipped a generation on home media.  I’d really like to know what happened there.  But it’s finally going to come out of the woodwork.

“We’ve done a wet-gate 4K scan of the original negative, and it’s going to look insanely good,” Jim Cameron says. “We’re going to do an authoring pass in the DI for Blu-ray and HDR at the same time.”

He said to expect that some time early next year. In the meantime, the 30th anniversary “Aliens” DVD/Blu-ray hits shelves Sept. 13.

Following that closely will be a 3D version of Terminator 2: Judgement Day (not to be confused with T2:3D) in October.  One question though, does this mean True Lies is also getting the remaster treatment?
