    I know there's a regular TBC dvd, but I want more. A movie like Jeepers Creepers have a SE; certainly The Breakfast Club deserves the SE treatment. I own the VHS, DVD, and will be the first in line for TBC SE. All I wish for christmas is a The Breakfast Club SE is that too much to as for [​IMG]

    from what i understand its much easier for filmakers to make SE's of films in production or recently made since most of the material is on hand and can be made while filming while older movies require digging and rounding up casts.

    Welcome to the forum, an 80s fan is more than welcome [​IMG]
    There have been numerous rumours regarding this and other Hughes films needing SE treatment. Like many, we cross our fingers.

    I think it's beyond the questionable stage right now. At Studio Day, Universal stated that this John Hughes box set had its supplements completed, and is awaiting a street date. I know I can't wait.

    I remember reading an interview some time ago with John Hughes where he stated that he is the only one in possession of the longer cut of The Breakfast Club, and his copy is just a VHS dupe.

    Do you know which of his 80's films are included in the box set. I own TBC and Ferris Bueller already, but guess i'll buy the set when it's released as well.

    Speaking of - I am hoping that something like PRETTY IN PINK would also be available separately rather than just in a box set. I doubt if I'll re-buy titles that I already have. Actually, does anyone know anything about PRETTY IN PINK on DVD?

    Still no word...Universal's overseas contract with Columbia expired today, so I think we should start seeing a flood of Universal back catalog announcements...I have my fingers crossed.

    PRETTY IN PINK and SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL will be released on 8/20... regarding the eventual John Hughes boxed set, hopefully each title will be available separately as well.

    welp, i picked this up last night. but before i open it up i wanna know if any SE is coming out?
    i was kinda bummed it's in 2.0 mono...i don't think it's anamorphic either.
    but, if this is it, then i'm gonna settle in, go fix me some turkey pot pie, and enjoy my new movie. [​IMG]

    One has been rumored for a LONG time now, but as I recall from the last solid info I read we probably won't be getting it until sometime in 2004.

    My dream extra for a special edition would be a full cast commentary that reunites all of the brat-pack in this movie, kinda like the cast commentary track for the Goonies.
