    Any word on Giant being released for R1? I know it was out already in Canada for awhile and probably is unavailable now from any source. I remember some what appeared credible speculation about the end of this year. I believe it is a Warner title. Since no word has been heard of late is '03 more likely now?

    There was an announcement a month or two back (complete with cover art) that Warner was soon to release this title as an SE. Then it disappeared and nobody knows what's going on with it.

    Thanks, Rain, I thought things have gone suddenly quite after some intention for the SE. I assume the SE would be similar to what was available in Canada. If not, that may explain some of the delays (efforts to collect additional material...).

    Maybe this can be brought up again on the next Warner chat...

    Pure speculation here, but perhaps they are saving the release for their new "Two Disc Special Edition" collection next year?

    Paul, it was already supposed to be a double-disc set, released at the same time as the new sets for Unforgiven, Singin' In The Rain, True Romance, Amadeus, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. I was the one who reported that it suddenly disappeared from Warner's list of release titles. There has been nothing new since then; I've checked as recently as the other day!


    As for this:
