Bill Hunt over at the Digital Bits reports that WB will release "The Right Stuff" (1983) sometime in 2011 Always liked this film and it should look great on Blu-ray!

Fantastic news, one of my top favourites!

Excellent news.  Easily one of my favorites from the'80s. - Walter.
Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.

I was hoping this would be coming soon, given how WB appears to be methodically upgrading their entire 2-disc Special Edition line to Blu. A must-buy for me as well.
Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.
* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.
* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

Hopefully they'll do some kind of restoration or remastering (without resorting to overly DNR'ing/EE'ing the thing). I seem to recall my DVD version having quite a bit of dirt, scratches and even one pretty egregious instance of film damage. Can't remember exactly at what point the damage was, only that it was visible to the naked eye when I watched it maybe ten years ago and it really jumped out at me.

I love this movie, but have never been overly thrilled with the look on any of my copies -- several LD version and 1 or 2 DVD's.    I'm not sure if it's the transfers or just the way it was filmed, but it's always been a bit dull and soft.   I hope a full cleaning and proper updating will be done and it won't turn into another Apollo 13.

Must buy.  One of the best films of the 1980s.

I sure hope they fix the sound too.  The last 2 DVD releases were horrid sounding.   The pre-recorded vhs hifi copy sounded better than either DVD release.
