and this is also coming The Night Porter (Dirk Bogarde / Charlotte Rampling), El Cid (Charlton Heston), The Fall of the Roman Empire
Hello all, was this ever released? I can't pull up the link? Help please!
El Cid and Fall of the Roman Empire to be released "in the near future" (2004/2005) the link says. It's fantastic news but it's also a year old. Anyone heard of any updates?
Sorry! I was referring to "Magic"...I need a link.
Link works here: In the near future there will be Special Editions of movie classics such as Magic (starring Anthony Hopkins), The Night Porter (Dirk Bogarde / Charlotte Rampling), El Cid (Charlton Heston), The Fall of the Roman Empire and Pele The Conqueror. And since then, nothing. Not a word from Anchor Bay UK. Not a sausage... Ask the question on their Forum (I have); maybe if more people shout, they'll let us know what's going on: http://www.anchorbay.co.uk/forum/
Lyle, Thanks for the news (and for thinking of me). Very sad that there is no R1 release of this film in the works despite the fact there was actually a planned release date back around 1998. Let's hope the R2 release leads to R1
Just to double underline Ron; that annoucement, and Lyle's post was made nearly 12 months ago...I just wish there had been an R2 release, but sadly no.
John, My apologies. I sort of skimmed through the thread this morning without realizing that.
Hi Ron, I'm a huge fan of Magic also! I just picked up the PAL ALL REGION UNCUT Australian DVD. It's FULL FRAME (unfortunetly) with a decent picture, better than the Chinese boot! It'll do for now until we get a "Special Edition".
That R1 disc (full frame) did make the market, at least in some stores. A friend of mine picked up a copy at Borders a few years ago and said it was taken from the video (I can't remember who released it at the moment).
Although that was for the edited, TV version. I have a copy of the VHS that the company that announced the DVD was putting out and it ran ten minutes shorter, with all the language edited out.
Magic was issued 4 times on VHS. Blay Video was the first, and has the best quality. I still have my copy from the early 80's.
