    I guess it's now just a question of when is "coming soon." I wonder if July will be the (rumored) time.

    I would love to see them try to release a "crappy" version first and then an Ultimate Edition. Can you say, screaming bloody murder? I think they know they've sat on this forever and if they don't put out something incredible, they will find work on a deserted island as a coconut catcher.

    I hope we don't get the shaft for the Other two films. I despise when studios give the shaft to sequals..

    "...Trilogy DVD..."

    "...adventure comedy films."

    "...and the BTTF Trilogy DVD release!"

    I think we can expect all of them.

    The pictures on the site are from all three movies as well.

    I believe when he said "shaft for the sequels" he meant that the first movie would be loaded with extras and the last two would be bare bones movie only DVD's.

    Well, as if this isn't any surprise. Universal delays BTTF yet again. According to The Digital Bits:

    isn't this in some other threads? Not to mention the new news from the bits and dvdfile that Universal launched it's BTTF movie website (http://www.bttfmovie.com). The Digital Bits seems to think that we're gonna be seeing the trilogy on DVD sooner than we think, possibly before July.

    I have mentioned before that I have an aquaintance who works at the Universal distribution center here in town. He's a low-level grunt, so I take anything he says with a grain of salt.

    However, it's worth noting that he believes that the idea of a BTTF theatrical re-release is a load of horse$#!+. He says that they're gearing up to distribute those titles on home video in the coming months, although noone there will yet say when.

    No scoop here fellas, just continued validation that it's on it's way to DVD, and the new site seems to validate it as well. I doubt it would be promoting the DVD release of the trilogy if there was any chance of a theatrical rerelease first.

    Finally, I'll remind everyone that this indeed has been discussed here before. The Bits seems to be repeating the rumor that Dark Horizons published, which DH came late to and has already been squashed. I think Bill Hunt just wasn't thinking straight when he repeated that. And it's understandable, since DH is usually a "reputable" source of rumors, if such a thing exists. However, I'm sure DH got news hungry and posted something they normally wouldn't give the time of day to, and now it's got all of our panties in a wad.

    I'll believe that this film is on DVD when they pry the disc into my cold, dead hands. However, I don't believe for a second that it will be back in theaters first, esp. with E.T. going to theaters the same year.

    I think Universal just has to get the balls to finally announce an official release date and release the discs.
