Twentieth Century Fox have announced Region 2 releases of both The Abyss and Independence Day. Both are 2-disc sets, due on 26 February and will retail for £24.99.
The Abyss: Special Edition contains both the theatrical and director's cuts (the latter featuring 24 minutes of restored footage), trailers, behind-the-scenes footage, a documentary and featurette, a text commentary, visual effects, stills and storyboards. The UK release will feature the reframed 'rat sequence' and will be non-anamorphic much like the Region 1 and Region 4 releases.
Independence Day on the other hand will be anamorphic and will feature an impressive array of extra material including commentaries by Roland Emmerich, Dean Devlin, Volker Engel and Doug Smith, alternative ending, three featurettes, trailers, TV spots, stills and more. Once again there will be two versions of the film - the theatrical cut along with a second cut with 8 minutes of restored footage.
