At long last, I ordered the Region 1 Version of Fire In The Sky and it arrived here at my home in Northern Ireland today. pretty quick, since its not out offiialy untill October 19th.
Paramount have done a suberb job on both picture and sound. The anamorphic widescreen is beautiful and delivers. The picture is great. The 5.1Dolby Digital sound is amazing. Eespecially at the opening credits and the abduction scene.
This is well worth the wait.
Bad Points! A trailer would have been nice. There is No inlay card, and my cover is French/Canadian.
I see no reason why they would re-release it anytime soon. Paramount especially is stingy with re-releases, only recently having joined the double dip movement, and only for DVDs that were released in the early days of 1997-1999, like Ferris Bueller and Footloose.
I was hoping for at least a trailer for this movie, but I guess this barebones release will have to do. It's avialable for really cheap so a double-dip wouldn't hurt that much, but still. It's a great little film, without a doubt.
God I hope for a new release for this movie. Its great to see that there is still some intrest in this little movie. I read the book that walton penned and in it he says there was a 2 hour documentry made of the film wich you could buy on vhs direct from walton. Now if that where on the dvd along with a commentary and a trailer and a DTS track, we are laughing.
