Boogens Blu-ray review!:
Hope this review is wrong with the Region A comment, Olive are mostly region free. It's packing at Importcd's at the moment. Looking forward to it
I'm a little behind on my slang - does 'Packing" mean it's already shipping? I put in a pre-order for this and if I get it in my mailbox soon I'll be very happy.
It looks like Olive is preparing an upgrade of Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) with a Signature Edition release. Release date apprears to be 10/16/2018.
Olive's Facebook post, yesterday, specifies that this Signature release of Invasion of the Body Snatchers will be limited to 5,000 copies.
Olive Films's Elijah Drenner also clarified on Facebook that they secured the original extras dropped by Paramount from the 50th anniversary release:
I may have to get this after all.
But I'm still hopeful they'll go back to the original negatives and scan it for 1.85:1 as it was original shot. The final materials for the theatrical release were poorly processed to 2.00:1 instead and I don't think anyone's ever gone back to the original negatives since. This is like the only film you can justify going "full screen" at 1.77:1 and ironically they won't do it. But you'll never get the full definition captured until you do.
Yeah I’m definitely picking this up this release looks stacked. I have 2 other Signature releases from Olive (High Noon and Johnny Guitar) and they’re really high quality. Looking forward to this one.

...and a status of the film elements from Robert Furmanek of 3-D Film Archive...
What a shame that a movie as recent as 1956 had both the negative AND a master positive go missing. Hopefully someone just mislabeled he canisters, but it's entirely possible that it was destroyed in one of Paramount's vault fires over the years.
Robert A Harris offered similar remarks:
At least the transfer is an improvement.
There is currently an Olive BOGO sale at DeepDiscount thru the 25th.
Includes the new Body Snatchers blu. I grabbed that and Bound Olive Signatures. Good deal!
Great deal on these, I picked up Body Snatchers as well along with a few others . These Olive sales don't come along too often so it's best to act now or miss out.
