According to Bits editor Bill Hunt, WB plans to release these two films on DVD later this year. WONDERFUL & it is about time!! I'll be waiting anxiously for their release, & I certainly hope they OAR!

I've been asking for Wolfen since I joined the Forum. Thanks for the update!

Good news about both of those. I remember that recent video releases of WOLFEN, including the widescreen laserdisc, had a message about "some music being changed/rescored" for home video. I hope this is cleared up for the upcoming DVD release.

It looks like a two-disc set!

CLASH OF THE TITANS is also coming sometime this year from Warner (if anyone is interested):

It looks like a one-disc set in a snapper to me. Now V: The Final Battle looks like a two-disc set! Posted Image

All I can say is that if this year gets any more expensive, I am going to have to get a second job...these are another two titles that I will have to get and have waited for.

Thank goodness these studios are making up for last year, wansn't that big a year for DVD for me personally.

Wolfen is a "must-buy" for me. Posted Image

However, I can't say I care much for the cover. Posted Image

Well, personally, I've always considered it the Citizen Kane of werewolf movies, but that's another story! Posted Image

The reason I thought it might be a two-disc set is that there is a "thumbspace" on the middle-right side of the cover, which makes it look like you would slide the inside packaging out of the box, ala Kane. But perhaps I'm wrong about that!

That's not a "thumbspace"; someone trimmed the picture so that the right-side bar from the snapper case would not be so visible. The semicircle that was left was the untrimmable portion of the snapper. All snapper snap-bars have the protruding semicircle. As you can see from my picture, Wolfen's definately in a snapper.

That cover is the exact same as the old VHS edition and the theatrical one-sheet. What's wrong with it?

I'm partial to the Japanese handbill art for Wolfen Posted Image

They probably didn't dare consider any of the euro poster art since the NY skyline is now very different.

Anyway, I doubt this movie will stand up to modern inspection.

Here are a couple more Wolfen designs for your amusement.

The first is a French poster (reproduced from a postcard), and is probably one of the versions that Will refers to:

This next one is the British retail video sleeve, circa 1995:

Personally I don't think any of the posters are particularly appealing (least of all the new WB one!)

Even though it's not the original 1 sheet poster, I like the Wolfen DVD cover art . I'm glad to see their using the original art for Clash of the Titans...but more importantly, I look forward to owning and viewing these classics on DVD.
