from the bits
evidently the rights ended up at Universal for this film!?
The Backbeat announcement is a little odd. The current disc just came out last August, and has almost all of the features listed for the new CE, with the exception of:
But leave it to Universal to double-dip a cult film one year from its original release...
who cares??? I Wanna Hold Your Hand is coming!!!
YEAH, YEAH, YEAH,
the good news is
IWHYH is getting a nifty little CE at the end of Sept.
the bad news is
as per standard practice w/ Universal, generic library music will be substituted for all songs needing clearance
at least i hope so.
Great news, I can finally retire my laserdisc!!
And a SE to boot!
WOOOOHOOOOOO!!!! My Zemeckis collection is beginning to become complete! Now for those SEs of Death Becomes Her and Romancing the Stone!
Wait a minute- on my Warners VHS, the soundtrack has a lot of original Fab Four recordings. Will they be kept for the DVD release, or is it to expensive for Universal to re-negotiate with Apple for the use of the music??
It makes NO SENSE to release "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" without the actual music used in the film. I'd rather wait a couple of years while the music clearance issue is settled, as it ultimately was for "Grease".
Uh, Charles, Paul was making a little joke - his j/k means "just kidding".
My goodness- I was nearly scared out of my wits over that one. At least the Beatle music will be there, where it should be!
YEAH! YEAH! YEAH!
I've been waiting for this film for ages. Great news!
FINALLY! Man, so many long-awaited films coming so soon! (Duel, The Sugarland Express, and now I Wanna Hold Your Hand) Finally I can have a cherished copy of Miss Wendie Jo Sperber's most exuberant performance! And Eddie Deezen's geekiest! Oh man, and a CE to boot. I am SO glad Universal didn't just toss this one out as a barebones!
Now if only Fox (who released the VHS version; contingent on if they have the DVD rights) will release the excellent John Frankenheimer-directed, John Sayles-scripted, Stephen Seagal-choreographed Scott Glenn/Toshiro Mifune modern samurai action classic The Challenge, I will PROBABLY be able to breathe a little easier.
I can't think of any example where they've done this on DVD, although it was quite common with their VHS and LD releases.
Not to go too far off topic, but music was replaced on the upcoming Universal release of Nighthawks.
Cited from these related threads:
I started a thread near the 40th anniversary of the Beatles' coming to America, posing the question as to why this title hadn't been released.
Glad that my question has finally been answered.
Great news. I love this movie!!!
I stand corrected then! I remember Universal restoring original to music to films such as John Carpenter's The Thing and Fast Times At Ridgemont High, so I assumed that was their policy.
