    Hmm not much new there, to me at least. And I'm waiting on that Fire in the Sky cover as well. I hope it isn't delayed - it's still not listed at Amazon!

    Oh and the Tom and Jerry collection cover in color is here: http://www.dvdanswers.com/index.php?...4299&n=1&burl=

    Due to those cover listings, I found out that fox is releasing a great tv film - Doing Time on Maple Drive which is listed at amazon and almost nowhere else.

    I have a terrible feeling about fire in the sky that it will be delayed. November 5th 1975 next year is the 30th Anniversary of the actual incident. Maybe they will do something then.

    But why on earth would they issue a colorized version??

    Are you aware of any further specs yet, supplementals, etc? Also, do you know to what extent Fox invested in restoration over this transfer? Will it be a vast improvement over the semi-recently released Elite version and is Fox planning on going all out for this release?

    I might pick up the colorized NOTLD, just for the novelty factor of it.

    I already have both of the Elite DVDs in the original black and white -- and there are plenty of options available to those who want the original, unaltered version so this colorized version won't be in danger of supplanting the original.

    I could be mistaken, but the colorized version of Night of the Living Dead may not be in the public domain while the black and white version is. It would be foolish for them to issue an essentially copyright free version of the movie. I could be wrong though.

    Legend Films is a colorization outfit. There's a thread about them somewhere. Fox is issuing Night of the Living Dead because of the colorized version. Or to look at it another way, why would they issue it in black & white when there are already so many black and white versions out there?

    This site has the details.

    I am waiting for both Deep Impact and Fire In The Sky so that I can update my own personal site.

    I'm tempted to buy The Fearless Vampire Killers after seeing the cover alone.
