    Finally a real update from Universal:

    Lots of bells and whistles for the Anniversary Edition coming out in October. It will be a big edition. No details yet.

    Before, the Universal Reps would just state it would come out after their 1Q-2Q catalog titles were released. So it doesn't seem like anything is holding this back.

    Everyday, at least two people ask about this title at the DVD place down the street.

    Chris,
    Unless, we see something official like a press release then all it is a rumor to the rest of us.

    Yes, I have heard enough rumors being stated with such certainty lately.

    Rumor or fact, I've been waiting for a special edition of Scarface and I hope it's not too far away.

    I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.

    Should be out soon. Since the Universal Rep learned of it Friday evening. It is all rumor until it comes out. I also mentioned when BTTF was coming out from the same source and I got the same replies... Just want to pass along this info that I heard directly. No worries I can sleep at night [​IMG]

    Also, I hope the original soundtrack is kept intact. Rumor was going around Jay-Z was going to create a new one.

    sigh, everytime a new Scarface thread pops up I always check to see if its for the Paul Muni 30s version, and I'm always disapointed its merely more complaining about the Pacino version being out of print or lacking a special edition. I'll give this film a rent (haven't seen it) if a SE does come out, but I think its too bad that more people aren't interested in one of the best gangster movies I've ever seen. [​IMG]

    Seeing as it's universal putting this out, maybe they'll do a 2 pack with both versions of Scarface in one set. They did this with Meet Joe Black, so it is possible.

    As long as they remaster the Pic and Sound...the extras were good on the original SE disc...I just want better presentation...

    What about Carlito's Way. An SE, anamorphic print of that would be be more of treat than another Scarface edition.

    The last rumor had Scarface SE coming out before June 2003. This was according to someone who spoke with a studio rep. Oh well, I'm sure it's coming sooner or later.

    I ordered the region 2 edition yesterday. I caught 10 minutes of it (in pan and scan) on TV and I suddenly realised how INSANE the film is - just the type I feel like experiencing at the moment in these crazy times. Only cost £8.99 ($14.58) - quite a bargain.

    But how was the transfer created? The region 1 edition is 2.35:1 NON-anamorphic, yes? The R2 IS anamorphic though, yes? Are they from the same print and/or video-master?

    I just gotta see this movie IMMEDIATELY. I'll buy a fully-remastered SE if Universal release one.

    Pacino's performance is just something else! [​IMG]

    I surmise that the R2 disc is the non-anamorphic R1 transfer, "upconverted" to anamorphic (similar to the DTS R1 Predator disc). But that's just a guess; I don't think Columbia UK and Universal shared transfers...or did they?

    Carlitos Way would be an excellent film for a new remaster and SE treatment...

    If I'm not mistaken I've heard alot of Columbia UK & Australia transfers are done in France.

    There were rumors of a updated soundtrack with a hiphop score. What ever happened to those rumors?

    I think a SE is on the way,wasnt the older version discontinued?
