What you've all been waiting for! MGM now has set a release date for "The Return of the Living Dead" DVD! It will come out on August 27th. It will have all the extra features I've been talking about on my site http://members.tripod.com/~evilbaby/ROTLD.html for a while now; audio commentary by writer/director Dan O'Bannon and production designer William Stout, new video transfer mastered from the original negative, newly created sound mix by O'Bannon, featurette (though I'm not sure everything it will contain, I do know O'Bannon and Stout recorded new interviews for it), theatrical trailer and though other internet reports aren't mentioning it, O'Bannon told me the DVD is supposed to have a stills gallery of Stout's sketches/artwork from the film. Movie to be presented in 4:3 full screen and 1.78 widescreen (internet reports seem to be going with 1.85 widescreen but O'Bannon told me he went with 1.78 instead.) I just got off the phone with MGM and they confirmed the internet reports on the release date. Now we all know when our day of joy will come. Sure it won't be a huge special edition but remember, if it sells well....say hello to "The Return of the Living Dead: Director's Cut"! By the way, I did ask about a VHS re-release as well and the bad news to all you non-DVD people out there, there won't be one. MGM is "phasing out" VHS! I'd suggest if you want "ROTLD", you buy a DVD player soon.
