    I just recieved an e-mail from DVDEmpire regarding my pre-order of Weird Science, which was supposed to come out on April 1st.

    It says...

    "We have just been informed by the studio that the
    release date for 'Weird Science' has been changed
    to TBA.

    TBA = To Be Announced (No Release Date Specified Yet)

    Your order has been kept in place and will be processed
    normally. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have
    caused."

    Anybody else recieve this e-mail? Anybody know what's going on? I didn't pre-order Sixteen Candles, but does anyone know if it's still coming April 1st or if it's been delayed as well?

    Neither Sixteen Candles nor Weird Science is scheduled for April 1st any more. Breakfast Club still is; make of that what you will. No different dates are available from Universal for the first two titles. That's all I've got right now.

    How long, O Lord, how long before we can see Kelly LeBrock in glorious widescreen (and Molly Ringwald in an OAR tete-a-tete with a "Geek"-y Anthony Michael Hall)?

    Sincerely,

    John Kilduff...

    Then again, the "BTTF" trilogy was delayed for a long time because of all the extras that went in. Could Universal be cooking up something more for these two titles?

    Actually, Dave, I didn't get into DVD until 2000, and by then, copies of the discs had pretty much all been bought up and out as far as I could see.

    Sincerely,

    John Kilduff...

    Then again, this is 3 years back we're talking about.

    That's a shame [​IMG] . Scratch two more titles I was planning on for this half of the year. On the other hand, this works well with my intent on paring down my DVD buying habit [​IMG] .

    Grrr....

    I just sold mine on eBay (for a decent sum, it's true, but still...), foolishly believing the release date. Barstahds.

    BTW, is Breakfast Club supposed to be remastered (anamorphic) with extras? Or just a rerelease of the same old disc?

    Wow, I didn't realize these were going for so much on Ebay. Maybe I should sell mine.

    According to this morning's DVD File report, all three John Hughes movies, Weird Science, Sixteen Candles, and The Breakfast Club have been taken off the schedule. How incredibly frustrating. And considering that we've been hearing about these special editions since, I think, Studio Day 2001, I don't think they've been pulled for more features. Oh well...maybe in another few years....

    So any news on the new release dates? Now that the old release date has past I'd sure like to know when I'll get the chance to spend my money on these.
