    It's reasonable to assume a North American release will follow.

    I've been waiting for this one ever since the HD-DVD days. I hope they keep the commentary from the DVD. One of the funniest ever. "I got laid a lot in dis movie"

    With the Lionsgate release due in theaters

    shortly we can almost be certain that Universal

    does a tie-in with that release.


    I would definately buy this on Blu-ray.

    It will be interesting to see if they were able to find, or recontruct, the original audio stems.


    When this was release on DVD they were only able to supply a mono track.

    Didn't the original tapes for much of Poledouris' score suffer oxide failure and disintegrate?

    Only for the parts that have stereo elements that did not decay. A good chunk of it is reprocessed mono.
