    Oh yes! And who can forget the girls in the nighties, and little more, running out into the rain. Like two puppies fighting under the sheets. Only now in high def!

    Since supposedly this is a redux cut ala "The Outsiders", it has to be a new transfer!

    This is great news. I haven´t seen the film in years, so it´s almost like seeing the film in the first time from HD. Sweet! [​IMG]

    Any news about the extras? I guess this was also a turbulent shoot, so I hope revealing and frank documentary.

    There was an interview with Gary Oldman in latest Empire-magazine. While he admitted that there was tension between him and Coppola, he don´t have any hard feelings or anything. So I would think that he could do an interview.

    Broke? You think it's going to be more than $30?

    Very nice at $20 too. I'd like to see an announcement with specs before doing the banana jig though. [​IMG]

    Sony has been very good with picture quality on their new transfers. In addition, this is a new cut so I'd expect it to look very nice. I'm looking very forward to it!

    FWIW - I read on another site from Paidgeek [BITES FIST] that the BD will contain the extended cut and may also contain the original cut via branching.

    Good news either way.

    That would be really nice. I personally don't like the idea of only releasing director's cuts of films. There is something to be said for having the option of seeing the theaterical version of the film. For historical reasons if nothing more.
