Sci-Fi Geeks - something "VERY COOL" is coming tonight during the AFI 100 YEARS/100 MOVIES special On CBS

Drew over at TV Jab sent me a link from AICN that talks about a “VERY COOL” commercial that is supposed to air tonight during the 3 hour AFI 100 Years/100 Movies special. Apparently this thing is so cool we’re supposed to wet ourselves….

From AICN:

We have exclusive word that wedged between all those “Star Wars,” “Raiders,” “Godfather” and “Casablanca” clips will be a one-minute commercial touting a new DVD release. (We’re told it will ultimately be a new DVD/HD-DVD/Blu-ray release, if that’s any clue.)

This is a new DVD release for one of the most beloved sci-fi movie classics of all time. Its commercial contains newly-shot, never-before-seen footage. Every sofa in every parent’s basement in America should fear the potential deluge of geek urine, we are told.

The sci-fi movie in question is not affiliated in any way with George Lucas or Steven Spielberg.

We’re told the studio behind the release is so excited about the new footage that it is even now mulling a new theatrical release for the title.

I won’t be watching this tonight, but as soon as something comes online, I’ll try to get it posted here on the site. Feel free to leave comments letting us know what the mystery commercial is…

I’ve heard speculation that it could be Star Trek related or even Forbidden Planet…I have a feeling it’s going to be something different, though…

My money is on Blade Runner. What do you think?
