    This DVD was announced a couple years ago, but never actually came out. Amazon now has a new release date - May 14. USA Films is listed as the studio releasing it and I won't be surprised if the DVD gets delayed again, thanks to Universal taking over the distribution rights to the USA Films catalog.
    This is quite a depressing movie, but I wouldn't mind having it on DVD provided it is in OAR.

    Universal Home Video has no current plans to change USA Home Entertainment's current release schedule.

    So whatever titles were recently announced are still due on their respective release dates.

    I can't wait. This was a great movie and I really want an anamorphic OAR for this. Extremely depressing, it's true, and I saw it alone on vhs the first time, in the dead of winter at about 3 a.m. in the morning--miracle I didn't go out and kill myself right there and then [​IMG]

    I'm 'enjoying' my japanese r2 of this masterpiece for over 3 years now. It's oar 2.35:1, 16:9 enhanced, dd 5.1 and film-sourced. Pq is okay considering it's an early release. Main problems are ee and a lot of shimmering/moire. Black level and shadow detail are perfect though (don't forget to calibrate for 0 ire) and the colors are beautiful. I love the japanese trailer!

    Good news indeed. I've been waiting for this one since it was originally announced. Thanks for the heads-up!

    The movie is of course as depressing as the Thomas Hardy book, which I had to read in high school.

    If you like Jude, you should check out the same director (Michael Winterbottom)'s equally harsh and moving "The Claim" from last year.

    I'm really looking forward to his "24 Hour Party People," about the Madchster scene, out this summer.

    Has anyone found out yet if the 5/14 release of "Jude" is indeed OAR ?

    The DVD is supposed to be released tomorrow (unless it has been delayed yet again). Any reviews ? Is it OAR ? Anamorphic ?

    I don't have the disc but I'm hoping for the best as I've been looking forward to this title since it was first announced. Thanks for the heads-up!

    According to Deep Discount DVD, it's pan and scam, and single layer. Unbelievable. Guess I need to start looking for the LD again. Hopefully their listing is wrong...

    E-mail from DVD Empire states that the status has been changed to "To Be Announced."

    If it's pan and scan I may just cancel, anyhow.

    Mine just shipped yesterday from Deep Discount. I'm crossing my fingers that it's OAR.

    I had no idea this was being released

    Anyone see it, was it released as scheduled or delayed?

    Jude is widescreen. Picked up a copy at Borders today. Does not appear to be anamorphic, according to the packaging, but I could be wrong.

    The first online review I have seen for this DVD (at www.currentfilm.com) says that 'Jude' is widescreen AND anamorphic !
