There's nothing wrong with going nowhere. It's a privilege of youth.
FANDANGO: (fan-dang-go) 1. A lively Spanish dance. 2. The music for this. 3. A foolish act.
Academy Award winner Kevin Costner and Judd Nelson star in this story about five young men about to graduate from college in the summer of 1971, who take one last, wild trip across West Texas before facing their lives as adults--which will include marriage, careers and service in the war in Vietnam--in this heartfelt and adventurous coming-of-age story. Kevin Reynolds (Waterworld) made his feature film directorial debut with this fan favorite.

I was just thinking about this movie a few days ago. Great film, and now I can retire my ancient DVD finally.

This is really good news!

Interesting backstory on Wikipiedia
"Steven Spielberg admitted that the film "wasn't really released," but wouldn't say more than that. Asked to comment on Spielberg's hesitance to release the film, director Kevin Reynolds' agent simply responded: "He's tired of talking about Steven Spielberg, and he's busy."

Although Spielberg was disappointed with the finished film and did not have his name on the product, Amblin Entertainment is still credited. Fandango did not receive a widespread release, grossing less than US$100,000."

I really like this film, so it’s a no-brainer for me to upgrade.

A Kevin Reynolds directed box office disaster starring Kevin Costner that ISN'T Waterworld? Was this karma?

Kevin Reynolds also directed "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" starring Kevin Costner which was a smashing success at the box office in 1991.


EDIT:

Tried pre-ordering through the link, and it says currently unavailable...how can a pre-order be unavailable?

It happens all the time, Amazon posts a pre-order placeholder that is inactive until it becomes active. It will become active in the coming days.

Interesting, in that the old DVD release has a remixed Dolby Digital 5.1 track, and it appears they are going back to the original theatrical stereo mix on this release. I do hope Warner created a new scan of the film, as I really cannot tell the difference between my old DVD and the disc-to-digital HDX I later purchased on Vudu.

I think as soon as you see a price populate in the Amazon link on Ron's OP, then you should be able to place a pre-order.

Love this movie and looking forward to what is hopefully a decent transfer. Disappointed (but not surprised) there are no extras but would have loved it if they had included the scenes from the TV version as extras.

I enjoyed Water World but felt the Ulysses cut made it a much better film. Better pacing, more character development, and a less abrupt ending.
