I doubt that'll ever happen.
That's probably true, but if they are really working on it right now and its scheduled for a late 2009 release that gives them enough time to for remastering, i doubt it is taking them so long for developing new special features because there isn't much to talk about since the old special editions which covered every single aspect, from pre to post production.
So whats taking them so long if not remastering? Take Blade Runner for example, looks brand new on Blu-Ray, easily one of the best i own with a 27 year old movie.

I know some people could say now "Well, its FOX were talking about here" and they are right about that, but take a look at some of their titles which are very nice looking.

Romancing the Stone for example or even Planet of the Apes which is 40 years old now.

One can hope.

Theres always room for improvement picture wise. Except for Alien. The picture from the DC in the Quadrilogy was about as good as I think we'll get that  ;D

Johnny, it's not Fox I'm doubting. The reason it hasn't been remastered as of yet, if I remember correctly, is due to the type of film it was shot on.

Hm. I don't care for Resurrection, but if released all together...

Well I'm going to assume that Alien 3 and Alien R will have the best Blu-Ray transfers as they are the most recent films although I could be wrong.

Wouldn't surprise me since Predator came out roughly the same time Aliens did so similar camera quality might equal same picture quality on Blu-Ray.

I think I read that HD masters were made at the time they did the Quadrilogy? So I guess they would use those rather than do it all over again.

Fox's Blu-Rays of old releases aren't the greatest around.  I hope they put some effort into this release and do some hefty fbf remastering.  We'll see.

HD master...is that just an upgraded version of the standard film reel?

So are they doing a trilogy release and then the quad or was it misinterpreted by the guy before the news got over here.

One thing or two things?

The quad news came second. At first it was just going to be the first three, but now all 4 are being released.

At first i thought it was kind of funny how they were ignoring A:R for a blu-ray release. Then i was kind of sad for it.

Felt the same. Like the movie or not, it's still a part of the series, and although I had tons of problems with it, it is still a watchable movie. As long as you don't take it too seriously.

So its the same set with the same features, the guy just called it the alien trilogy?

I feel you now home dog.

The way it was originally worded seemed like there was going to be two sets of different blu ray disc.

Kind of like the two seperate things of dvd's you can get.  The Alien Trilogy, and the Alien Quad.
