  1. I've seen lots of comedies in my time. But when Airplane came out, I don't think that anyone was prepared for it. I certainly wasn't. And neither was the packed audience i saw it with. The laughter was contagious. I laughed so hard the tears were flowing. I can't say that about many comedies. And after more than 30 years, it still hasn't lost very much of its punch.

    You can never go back in time and see a movie again for the first time. But I can proudly say that I was there when the $#it hit the fan for the first time, and I almost fell down on the floor!

    Needless to say… Pre-ordered.

  2. I love how a Blu set containing both films is $13.99, but to buy Airplane II by itself is currently $16.99.

    But then we have to wait for many months.

    Now I have to find a home for my current Blu of Airplane.

    Looks like you picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue, Mark.

  4. I still have a hard time believing that Ken Finkleman is the same man who wrote/directed Airplane II and starred/wrote/directed The Newsroom (a brilliant 90s/00s Canadian TV show satirizing TV news, long before the HBO show of the same name)–they are completely different beasts. I love Airplane!, so I'll consider the sequel as a bonus feature.

    Same here.

    I'll probably wait and see if there is a drop with Airplane: The Sequel blu ray…

    Or try and sell my Airplane copy now and pre order.

    "What a pisser."

    Ken Finkleman made a nice living copying other people's work. Granted, he was paid to make the second Airplane and naturally gave them the same style as the original. But the Newsroom ripped off so much of The Larry Sanders Show I couldn't watch it .

    I saw that TCM is showing Airplane! in June!!

    Any word on a UHd Blu-ray coming as well?

    paramount is hard to figure out these days with releases.

    happy 40th anniversary Airplane!!!!

    With Paramount there is no way of knowing. I would say chances are slim to none.

    Paramount has instead been releasing most of its catalog stuff to iTunes in HD and 4k.

    agreed.

    I don't know that Airplane! is something that really demands the 4K treatment. Better that they release their VistaVision titles, and the Star Trek and Indiana Jones movies first.

    Absolutely agreed!

    AIRPLANE is currently being offered 1080p on iTunes currently

    Still amazed that Airplane! got a PG rating- the Otto Pilot inflation scene alone is beyond PG these days.

    Clearly the MPAA blew it … 😉
    Or Otto … is not a real dude, and of course kids know all about how inflatable objects are blown up … 😎
