After a year-long postponement Paramount has rescheduled Roman Polanksi's '76 film to July 1, according to DVDFile.com. The only feature will be the trailer, and the film will be 16:9-enhanced with mono sound.

I'm guessing the previously announced retrospective featurette has been dropped. Unless the DVD File report is incomplete.

Only a trailer, eh?

Gee Paramount, don't spoil us or anything. Posted Image

Considering this film does have a trailer though, I'd say Paramount could put "Special Edition" on the packaging.

But anyway, I had this pre-ordered the first time around. This time around, I won't be.

I saw the announcement as well. Funny that Polanski just won an Oscar. Posted Image

Oh well, I'll be picking up a copy...

Fantastic news - one of the best horror films of the 70s!

The good news: I think the MSRP dropped from $24.95 to $19.95 between the original announcement and the current one. [I note that Columbia/Tristar's upcoming release of Beautiful Thing has only a trailer and lists for $29.95!]
The bad news: The "retrospective featurette" may have been a casualty of the legal problems that delayed this release almost a year.

I'll still pick it up, regardless of whether it has a featurette or not. Though it's a shame that this Polanski film won't be getting any extras like his previous Paramount films have. It's also nice to see that the studio has changed it's pricing for catalogue titles.

Great film - a must-have for those who appreciate unusual films.

Shame that the featurette will not be included.

Here's hoping that the film has been well transfered.

Baahhh! Posted Image How about $5.99-shipped from deep discount dvd? I've never seen this, but figured for a little more than the rental price of a VHS I'd "take the chance." Posted Image

When you can own films on DVD for a couple bucks more than the price of a VHS rental, that tells me the DVD revolution is as big as the home video revolution itself was.

yeah, at first I thought it was an error, but a couple places give it a LIST price of NINE-NINETY NINE, not $19.99....! (Amazon,DVDPlanet)
Which means $5-6 at most e-tailers.

strange.

We will presume this is a gift from Paramount....
