    Does anyone know if and/or when this movie is to get a DVD release ???
    Being a Pacino / Spacey fan i'd love to see this on our beloved format.

    I posted this twice in the past. Nobody seems interested in this excellent movie. People are always more interested in the re-remaster of movies like T2 instead of truly great movies :

    Couldn't be further from the truth. It's just too depressing that it isn't available that we don't like to talk about it too much.
    Trust me that it has been discussed. Poor Ron hasn't seen the movie at all because he's waiting for an OAR release. This needs to be available ASAP.

    It's available as a movie-only disc on Region 2.

    Ned,
    I don't know what you're talking about- the reason maybe your thread went ignored is that questions about this film come up 3-4 times every year, with long discussions and plenty of posts.
    However, there is no news to report, so no one is rushing to say "it's not coming" for the 5th time.
    As it stands now, no one can even determine if they have the RIGHTS to release it! Read the studio day report- nobody knows who owns the damn thing.
    Again- there are TONS of people on this forum who are fans of this movie- the feedback thread got 3 or 4 pages last time!

    Thanks for the info.
    I've never seen this film before - probably the only Pacino / Spacey film i HAVEN'T seen. I'm thinking of waiting until it gets a dvd release (DD 5.1/OAR,etc).
    I'm sure it'll be worth the wait!!!

    At Studio Day 2000, the New Line rep I talked to told me that Artisan had the rights.

    From what I heard Artisan owns the rights to this and will be releasing a SE DVD next year. But this might just be a rumor. I'm really hoping that it isn't.

    Wasn't this released on DIVX? That makes it all the more frustrating.
