Now here's some exciting news for filmgeeks like myself.
Cult director Albert Pyun is releasing a new remastered transfer of his Director's Cut of Cyborg on both Blu ray "and" DVD. I've been following Albert on Facebook for some time now and I can tell you, he put a "lot" of work into this remaster doing it all by himself. I've seen some screen grabs and well, it looks amazing. Much better quality than his previously released Cyborg Director's Cut DVD.
Here's some info from Albert Pyun himself regarding this release:
The new version of the CYBORG: DC is a few minutes longer and contains the original main title sequence. It also contains my full commentary where I discuss how Cyborg came to be born in 1987 (from the ashes of FOUR projects - Johnny Guitar, Alex Rain - the precursor to what became Nemesis - Masters of the Universe and Spider-Man).
Nemesis has as many v2.0 vefx shots as I could locate. So its got a fair amount of new material.
CYBORG: DC re-mastering has gotten rid of the time code windows and is presented in 2:35 now. In the commentary I discuss my relationship with JCVD and the conflicts we had during shooting and in post. There's a few new music cues and shots as well.
Here's a quick note he posted on Facebook on Thursday regarding this release:
"Well, after 3 weeks of constant work, the CYBORG / Slinger uprez is complete. It's wide screen without time code windows and with added Cyborg nemesis peek at the end.
Here's the great cover art by Jerry Scullion. This "Misery" version will be screened in Chicago on March 9th. Now to complete Nemesis DC and the world will be good!"

This is not a studio release . It was created only for Cyborg fans who want Albert Pyun's director's cut. This version of the movie is a darker story than the original release, which was cut to make an "R" rating and it has a different ending. The movie has Tony Riparetti's more aggressive soundtrack. We do not accept returns except for defective discs.
