The Hollywood Reporter (Today May 11) reports that Paramount DVD will release in August CLUELESS:Whatever Edition, TOMMY BOY:Holy Schnike Edition along with Collector's Editions of THE TRUMAN SHOW, WITNESS, THE HIGH AND THE MIGHTY and ISLAND IN THE SKY. Very cool stuff!

Clueless (Whatever Edition) will be mine for sure. Alicia Silverstone is great. I may also pick up Tommy Boy (Holy Schnikes Edition).
Lacey Chabert is so fetch!

I finally cracked and just bought Witness...that'll teach me to be careful among them English. Providing the extras are decent, I'll cheerfully buy it again.

Since, both of these John Wayne films are some of his least seen by the general public, it will be interesting to see how many units they sell of them. I'm buying both of them because it will give me the chance to hear the Duke whistle that terrific Tiomkin score again while seeing "Island in the Sky" for the very first time. Crawdaddy

Will these editions be known as Witness: The Witnessed Edition, Truman Show: The Showiest Edition, The High and the Mighty: The Mightiest Edition and Island in the Sky: The Cloudy Edition? These "cutesy" Special Edition monikers are lame!

Witness will be the 20th anniversary edition. I'm assuming since Truman show is coming out as well that they got Peter Weir to do a commentary or at least provide some more extras (like the deleted scenes shown in network TV).

It's funny, when you look at the poster art for "The High and The Mighty" it says the film was distributed by Warner Brothers. How did Paramount get the rights to this film?

As with "Island in the Sky", it was independently produced by Wayne-Fellows Productions who struck a distribution deal with Warner Brothers. Paramount recently acquired the video distribution rights for numerous films from the Wayne-Fellows and Batjac catalogs from the Wayne estate. Regards,

Assuming we get some decent extras, I'll rebuy "WITNESS". And "THE HIGH AND THE MIGHTY" will be mine as soon as possible. Posted Image Posted Image

That leaves a mere four months in 2005 in which to get out the titles we've all been begging for for years: ROBINSON CRUSOE ON MARS PHASE IV NAKED PREY CRACK IN THE WORLD etc. This new list does not indicate any step-up of catalog releases from Paramount, as was rumored. In fact, last year, their catalog releases numbered about a dozen every month. It was pretty amazing.

I, too have money waiting, Paramount! But Ace in the Hole and The Conformist are still the Paramount Holy Grails, for me.

I'll buy Witness only if it has the correct audio. The last DVD left out a crucial line of dialogue. When Book is shot by McFee, on the shot of the blood hitting the dry cleaning, you're supposed to hear (in voice over): Schaefer - Who else knows about this? Book - Just you and I. This is dialogue from earlier in the film, and key to establishing the villian.

It will be nice to finally have an anamorphic version of The Truman Show. I held off on that title all these years for that simple fact. I may even consider Tommy Boy. If Paramount reads this, good job on your re-releases, but come on, we need a Days of Thunder: The Thunderest Edition to come out with at least a decent anamorphic transfer!!!

Does anyone know where I can find out information about the current status of distribution rights for films? I'm looking into stuff on John Wayne's films in particular. I'd like to be able to find out the same info for any film, but for the moment, info about dist. rights for Wayne's films would certainly suffice. Thanx!

Are you looking for theatrical distribution rights?
