The information below is the "Technical Information" (from the AMAZON website) on the newly released 'Raising Arizona' DVD. I preordered the DVD and I received it before the release date of 8/20/2002 (obviously I didn't order from AMAZON). Is there a way to tell if the DVD I received is the current release? I assume that the "ASIN: 6305499128" is a unique identifier for the DVD -- but I don't see anything like that on the box. Where do you find the ASIN for a DVD? ----------------------------------------------------------- Release Information: Studio: Twentieth Century Fox Theatrical Release Date: March 13, 1987 DVD Release Date: August 20, 2002 Run Time: 94 minutes Production Company: 20th Century Fox Package Type: Keep Case Aspect Ratio(s): Widescreen letterbox - 1.85:1 Discographic Information: DVD Encoding: Region 1 Layers: Single Available Audio Tracks: English (Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround), English (Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround) Available subtitles: English, Spanish Edition Details: • Region 1 encoding (US and Canada only) • Color, Closed-captioned, Dolby, Widescreen • Theatrical trailer(s), TV spot(s) • Widescreen letterbox format • ASIN: 6305499128

There is only one Region 1 release of 'Raising Arizona', and it's been out since at least the summer of 1999. Amazon often changes the stated release date to reflect a price change. In this case, a new price probably went into effect on 8/20/2002. I have held off on purchasing the current non-anamorphic, bare-bones 'Raising Arizona' in the hopes that an SE will be released at some point. There's been some rumors, but still no official announcement (AFAIK).

The ASIN is Amazon's private SKU number. The UPC barcode is a better way to keep track of individual products, but Amazon doesn't put that on their website.
