    Well, AICN has a report from last night's screening of Blade Runner in LA, where Ridley Scott did a Q&A. He talked a bit about the upcoming Legend DVD. Sounds like there might be a theatrical reissue, but the DVD probably won't street until late 2002. I have my doubts about it hitting the theatres, but maybe with his post-Gladiator pull...

    Just curious, where do you get late 2002?
    "Also, later this year or sometime early next year, we will finally see the director's cut of "Legend" with half an hour of footage restored to the film. He is either referring to the DVD that is due later this year or a brief rerelease next year."
    Sounds like late 2001/early 2002 to me.

    He's talking about Blade Runner, his new cut may get a new theatrical run and the DVD for next Christmas. He says that Legend is coming before the end of the year

    This is great news of Legend being released late this year, early next year. I can't wait to get it. I also can't wait for Blade Runner. Ahh, the waiting game.

    Near the end of the article:
    As the Q/A went on he also dropped a nice little update on a new possible re-release of Legend with 25 minutes added back in. Even if the re-release doesn't happen the deluxe DVD will be out by X-mas 2002.

    Mark, in all fairness, over half of the time, the search function is down. And to be honest, EVERY SINGLE time you post something on here, do you bother to do a search to see if what youre about to say was already said?

    Can we please put a stop to any more Legend threads until we at least get an official street date? We all read the same websites pretty much, so there's really no point in re-reporting this stuff, to say nothing of the fact that these reports are almost always erroneous.
    Nobody wants this DVD more than me, but this is a bit ridiculous. I think we all know that this DVD will hit some time within the next 6 months, and aside from an official Universal press release, we've heard it all already.

    Sorry-- I didn't know the search function was down. However, be sure to look through the first two or three pages of active threads before posting a new topic.

    First off, AICN isn't exactly the #1 accuracy news source
    That's a typo, Universal wants it out to ie-in with LOTR, and Charles De Lauzerika(sorry, sp?) said that he's almost done. Why wait another year?
