What's Up With...?
Want to know when your favorite film/show will be on DVD?
 
May 05, 2004 - The most common letters received here at IGN DVD is questions on when films and TV shows will be released on DVD. Some titles are requested over and over. I can answer it once in a mailbag and two weeks later someone else is asking.


So I created this list, which will be readily available, as a reference point for as many release titles as possible. For future questions, use this link, so it goes into the proper folder. Please include the studio with your title request. I hope to keep it updated regularly.

And now, the rumor list. Please remember this is mostly rumor and gossip with some occasional fact thrown in there. Nothing in here is religion, unless I cite a studio source.

This list will be sorted in descending order of popularity. The ones people bug me about the most will be at the top.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Batman, Batman Returns: In prep now, to be released at the same time as the Christopher Nolan/Christian Bale film Batman Begins next year.

GoodFellas: Special Edition: September, two-disc edition, De Niro and Scorsese are reportedly heavily involved in it.

The Iron Giant: SE: Held until the November release of Brad Bird's Pixar flick The Incredibles.

Duel: No word, possibly released this year.

Ed Wood SE: Delayed from February, reportedly coming in October.

Office Space SE: It's been widely reported that Mike Judge and Fox are playing high/low money games and neither will budge. So until they work out financial terms, this goes nowhere.

Orgazmo SE: Is being worked on, no release date.

Robin Hood: Men in Tights: An SE is reportedly planned, but no word beyond that.

South Park: BL&U SE: Paramount is working on a new special edition but there is no release date.

Blade Runner SE: It's in the works, but it's a rather delicate legal situation so at this point, silence is actually golden and good for the process.

The Game SE: Was being worked on, no word.

True Lies: SE: Delayed first due to 9/11 and now Cameron's and Schwarzenegger's availability.

The Shawshank Redemption SE: Planned for this fall.

Newsradio - There's a legal/rights conflict, so no word.

Beetlejuice SE: In the works, all dependent on Tim Burton's availability.

The African Queen: Being restored, possibly by Lowry.

Event Horizon SE: It's happening in R2, but no word here.

Top Gun SE: Coming in late '04 or (more likely) early '05.

THX-1138: 2-Disc SE in September, restored by Lowry, Lucas pulled a Star Wars and fiddled with the effects shots.

Raising Arizona SE Not on the radar.

Beverly Hills, 90210 and Melrose Place: Spelling is reportedly waiting to see how Charlie's Angels sells, and there are musical rights issues with 90210 as it had a lot of musical guests.

The New Adventures of Lois and Clark: In discussions.

Crimson Tide SE and Enemy of the State SE: Both are Tony Scott titles that were in production but delayed, they might come with next Tony Scott movie, either Man On Fire or Emma's War, due next year. Neither is expected to be elaborate, just anamorphic transfers and a few extras.

Charmed: No word.

Hamlet (Brannagh's four-hour version): Rights problems, lawyers are working it out.

Space: Above and Beyond: Work is beginning on it.

Flash Gordon: No word but there is a nice R2 SE.

King Kong - Being worked on, delayed from last year, now delayed until the Peter Jackson version comes out.

The Jazz Singer: Being restored.

The Wonder Years: Hung up over music rights and royalties.

Casino - Reportedly being worked on, nothing definite.

A Fistful of Dollars and A Few Dollars More: There's talk, it will eventually happen. Probably depends on how well the Collector's Edition of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly sells.

The Abyss - Been talked about, nothing planned.

The Frighteners: The DVD sucks but the laserdisc version is excellent. Eventually all Jackson films will be revisited with special editions, but Peter is a busy man these days.

The Untouchables: Coming in the fall.

Mean Streets: This year.

They better hurry up with this, I've been waiting forever   :(
At wave level, everything exists as a contradiction. Everything is existing in more than one stage/place at any given moment. Everything must move/vibrate and constantly change to exist. Everything, including buildings, mountains, oceans and thoughts.

Poor Spider. The greatest film of the 1990's is finally getting a much-deserved special edition reissue this August. Goodfellas: Special Edition will sport a brand new 1.85 anamorphic transfer along with a Dolby Digital 5.1 track. Bonus materials on the two-disc set will include audio commentary with director Martin Scorsese and selected cast and crew members, a second "Cop and Crook" track with the real Henry Hill and US Attorney Edward McDonald (who played himself in the film). Additional extras include four new behind-the-scenes documentaries (Getting Made, The Workaday Gangster, The Goodfellas Legacy and Paper is Cheaper Than Film) and theatrical trailers. Retail is $26.99. Also available on the same day are the debuts of After Hours, Alice Doesn't Live Here Any More, Who's That Knocking At My Door? and a reissue of Mean Streets. Each will feature a Scorsese commentary track plus other extras to be announced. Retail is $19.97 apiece, or $59.92 for The Scorsese Collection set.

I just lost bowel control.


This is so good. Here's to getting greedy, and crossing my fingers for New York New York.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Double Indemnity (Billy Wilder/1944)

*shits pants, as i've been waiting for this day forever.  hopes this news is true.


Source: Digital Bits

Some Universal news... Double Indemnity has unfortunately been dropped from the studio's 7/6 Film Noir promotion - no reason given. Hopefully, they're working on a better release of the film to street on a later date.

Well, at least you had a great bowel movement.
more than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. one path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. the other, to total extinction. let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.

yep, i knew it was too good to be true.  hopefully theyll put some fucking extras on it and release it the right way later this year.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.
