I can't seem to find it anywhere. Any reason why it went OOP?

Same thing happened to me--somehow, as a daily reader of at least four DVD-related websites, CARLITO'S WAY going OOP totally flew under my radar. I ended up finding a sealed copy of the Collector's Edition from a seller on half.com and bought it; it's a bit of a bummer because the seller didn't tell me it was the official Canadian, not U.S., release so (though the disc content is absolutely identical) I'm stuck with bilingual cover art but, hey, at least I got it before it was too late to find any copies at all...

Weird, didn't this just get rereleased as a SE within the last year? I still haven't gotten around to picking up a copy. Shoot, guess it's too late.

Yeah, Chris, the Collector's Edition went OOP just one year after release...

Looking forward to an SE of this. I could never tell which version some online sites were selling so I would always end up just avoiding it.

Tim, there's already been an S.E. release (well, actually a Collector's Edition). If it says "Collector's Edition" on the top of the cover, you're safe; if it doesn't and has a red "Widescreen" banner at the bottom, it's the old, weak-ass movie-only release.

DeepDiscountDVD has a 2 pack w/ Carlito's Way (Collector's Edition) and Mobsters (never seen it) for $19.20. I'm thinking about getting this. Anybody own it yet?

I was going to get that from DDD but when you put it in your cart it says it's not in stock. I wouldn't be surprised if they can't get anymore.

I wound up getting a sealed copy for $13 from an Ebay seller. You can still get reasonably priced if you're careful. This seller had his own picture of the DVD which I coudl see was the newer version.

Damn, you're right. I just checked and it's still out of stock. Mighty fine movie for it to already be out of stock. Anybody know if a newer, better version is coming out w/in the next year?

I gotta' admit, this is a strange one. I think it came out sometime late Summer/early Fall of '03, because that was when I got it. Shame that it's OOP already.

I don't not understand the big deal. There's lots of CEs at Amazon at decent prices used and new from secondary market sellers. Plus there is no news on a new release.

They will probably re-issue the previous Special Edition sometime this fall to tie-in with the Prequel.

Trouble with buyingthis from Amazon or Ebay is that you don't know if you'r egetting the '03 release for sure unless you ask. The seller I bought from had a picture he liste dhimself that showed it was the newer one.

According to Coming Soon.net, CARLITO'S WAY:RISE TO POWER is headed straight to DVD this Fall. I would imagine a 2 pack of the 2 films will be released.
