I'm wondering which trailer they will include - there was a short green-band teaser with clips from the film, and a longer red-band version which was essentially just the classic scene of the bald guy pulling a scanner from the room and getting, as Big Jim and Billy Sol on SCTV would say, "his head blow'd up real good". I'd love to have both.


I distinctly remember going to the movies with my brother and Dad when I was a child. I don't remember what the film was, but it would have been some sort of family film. I don't remember the movie, but I sure as heck remember that red band trailer for Scanners they showed before it. Pure nightmare fuel.


Sometimes I really miss the days when trailers weren't attached to a particular movie. Theaters just showed whatever they had lying around.

I made a blind buy of this on DVD when I first went away to college -- and somehow never watched it.


Would still like to see the movie, but probably won't blind buy it again, I figure if I haven't gotten to it in over a decade of having it on my shelf, the urgency probably isn't gonna happen anytime soon.  But glad there's an HD version I can at least rent one of these days.


What's with the separate BD/DVD combo and DVD releases?  I thought Criterion announced they were going all combo pack, with no more individual format releases?

The MGM dvd had both trailers IIRC.
