    I just talked to Lasersedge and this title evidently came under the radar screen as it is now available on dvd. Furthermore, it looks like the distributors were told by MGM about this title's availablity about the same time as places like Lasersedge. Thus, it probably looks like none of the sites won't have it available to ship until sometime next week. Anyhow, my copy is ordered.[​IMG]

    Hmm...

    Amazon.com has had a listing for this (with the same cover picture) for more than a year now and it's always been listed as "Release date to be announced:The release date for this video has not been finalized."

    Amazon.com - BAT 21

    Also, the official MGM DVD site has no listing whatsoever for this movie.

    Kenneth,
    I'm just reporting what MGM has told Lasersedge, so we'll see which site is correct.

    Great news if it is true. I remember having this preordered a few years ago only to have it cancelled with no explanation or reason.

    I received the dvd today. I will be playing it in a little while. The disc has both the anamorphic widescreen and P&S version. The only extra appears to be the original theatrical trailer, but the disc is only $11.25 at Lasersedge.

    This dvd has a good transfer even by MGM standards. For the price I paid for it, I'm happy to have this film on dvd.

    Still looks like most stores are not even listing this title or have any in stock. I ordered a copy from DDD for $9.12 but they currently don't have it.
