    Nothing has been announced for the remaining films. Those three installments are now all owned by MGM, so I think the chances are good that they will surface soon. Not that it's on a par, but I believe part 5 ("The Face of Death"), while previously licensed to Trimark, may go to MGM as well (in its capacity as a 21st Century film, whose library is now theirs), so perhaps they're waiting for that title to revert so that they can issue them all in one big swoop.

    I actually wouldn't mind having these. They're not exactly great films, but fun as over-the-top revenge flicks. At least with MGM, we'll probably be able to obtain them for around $10 a pop. Death Wish V pretty much sucks, though.

    It would be nice if MGM would release both the theatrical and cable versions of Death Wish II. I copied the cable version a long time ago onto beta tape. I later purchased the laserdisc version of Death Wish II and found it had been cut from the cable version. I checked the VHS tape version and it is the same as the laserdisc. I would guess the cable version is 5 or so minutes longer than the theatrical version.
