    I think that there are contractual issues forbidding its release on DVD after it was released on DIVX. I have no idea when they would expire.

    DIVX may be dead, but the contracts are still in force.

    I would die a happy man if it got a Vista release.

    Sofar as Iknow it'll be a Vista Series release somewhere around Halloween. This information is a few months old, so I dunno if it's still valid, as Disney changes things around a lot

    Of all the Ed Wood threads, this one had my favorite title. [​IMG]
    Just noticed at IMDB that this is being released tomorrow.
    Yeah, sure it is.

    Ed Wood - SE will be released tomorrow with the deleted scenes. Just talked to my local dealer and he was unpacking the SE when I rang. So I can definitely confirm that this will be released, at least in Sweden, tomorrow.

    It was in the Sunday circular. Expect a recall at 11:59pm, right before 24hr stores can put them on the shelf....

    LMAO - which is exactly why I went the E-Bay route when it was recalled earlier this year.

    Somebody said that the bonus feature "When Carol Met Larry" was to be left off of the new release and that the old one contained it. Luckily for those involved, the artwork for the one last year did not list it on the disc to begin with. Perhaps someone with an early copy can confirm?

    I received my review copy last friday, and I didn't receive one when they were going to release it last time. So it should be on the shelves tomorrow.

    As for the disc itself, it does not contain the When Carol Met Larry featurette. It does have the Making Bela, Let's shoot this F*&%@#, and Theremin featurettes in addition to an audio commentary, deleted scenes (including Que Sera Sera), and the theatrical trailer.

    Does it still contain the 6th deleted scene (the one bad-mouthing Universal) as an easter egg? What does the second extras menu page look like now that they removed the When Carol Met Larry featurette? What's the UPC code now - I assume it's the same.

    Thanks for any info you can supply!

    Jeff,

    The second menu screen is a tombstone with the features listed on it.

    As for the hidden deleted scene and the UPC, I'll have to check when I get home, but I'll be sure to post with what I find tomorrow.

    I just got my screener copy (not much lead time there...hugh). I'll try to compare to the previous DVD tonight and revive my review of the former disc and update accordingly...

    David,

    What was the feature like? What made it so controversial?
