Finally! I was beginning to think that this would never be reissued.
And it is ironic that this is getting a anamorphic release, while This Island Earth only rated a fullscreen one.
OH GOD, I JUST PAID $200 FOR IT ON EBAY!!!!!!!!!!!
Just kidding. I'll be replacing my old Image disc that I must have bought 9 or 10 years ago.
EDIT: I know the link says May 8 but that's a Thursday so it's most likely the wrong date.
Universal's 2-disc German release included 'This Island Earth' as an extra; can't recall for sure if it was anamorphic or not, but I seem to think that (like the current R2 UK transfer) it was.
Nice that it's finally getting a reissue. I guess we won't be seeing any extras like the deleted scenes though.
Wasn't it DTS sound in theatrical release though?
You're right. The Digital Bits says 5/6/08, so that's surely the actual date. Can a Mod change the thread title? Thanks in advance!
This is very excellent news. this mean I can finally retire my "screener" VHS copy I permanently borrowed from the video store I worked at in high school.
"quick, lets escape under cover of afternoon in the biggest car in the county!"
Darn. And I've always felt badass since I paid $13 for it years ago just before it left the store shelves.
Yep, no more pride of ownership of another rarity. Snif.
Good for MST3K fans though.
Well I'm not giving up yet, darnit! I'm going to milk the bragging rights for all they're worth thru May 5th!!
Yep, good for fans. This will also drum up more interest in the show for Rhino to mull over some more.
Considering I have had no desire to watch it again in the last... three years? - too many unwatched episodes in the Rhino sets as it is, let alone the dozens of VHS tapes stashed in my closet from the original airings - I'm really glad I sold this one a while back. I think I got $200 for it or something.
Bummer about the deleted scenes though.
This was one of the first 3 DVDs I bought (the other 2 were Artisan's The 10th Kingdom and Kenneth Branagh's Henry V). Wish there were some deleted scenes, though; that might be enought to make me pick up the new version.
I'm psyched that its finally getting reissued and they're giving it a new transfer with 5.1 but they really should include those deleted scenes. The entire shelter sequence is a blast. There's a large and ever growing following for MST3K. Someone at Universal must have finally realized this. If everyone buys this version maybe they'll be motivated to revisit it in a couple of years with extras.
Finally. Been a long wait. Both my father and I have been wanting to get this forever. We both feel so bad for not picking it up for $25 10 years ago (didnt know it would go OOP so soon). Got pretty darn close to buying it for $200 on Amazon or Ebay. Ughh...so much. This is good news, indeed.
Did the MST3K rights just come up for renewal? I only ask because Shoutfactory just got the rights to the show.
DTS Stereo, which is different apparently.
