    Loved this film, too bad it never got a wide release. I thought Warner Bros was going to release it on DVD/Blu-ray sometime in August, but things change

    I've heard a rumour that Warner will release a bare-bones type edition, possibly DVD only, & then later, Criterion will be releasing the film.

    Warner Home Video has made an deal with Target to make the DVD release of ME AND ORSON WELLS a Target exclusive on 8/17. It is just a standard DVD release and does not indicate a Blu-ray release. I would guess that regular release would be a few months latter along with a Blu-ray.S

    I wish there where more movies with Welles as "character".

    In the Target ad yesterday they listed the DVD as being available this week as a store exclusive.

     

    No Blu-Ray.

     

    As a Richard Linklater fan since SLACKER, this has got to be one of the worst releases of his films. It was barely released theatrically, and now quietly being released on DVD.

    And the price, by the way, is $12.99.


     

    They are also listing 45 minutes of bonus features--including deleted scenes.
