A "Mailbag" letter posted today at a DVD site was just asking about this today.
Very cool. Hopefully Warner will release this disc in conjunction with the 2002 version of The Time Machine.
BTW... where did you find that cover art?
Great! That's exactly the same art on the letterboxed Laser Disc and one-sheet I have!
It's nice to see older films on DVD with original poster art work on their cases. Most xamples of new art Like Buckaroo Banzai (yechhhhhhhhh) make me want to print out my own and use the new versions to line bird cages where proper commentary can be offered.
I guess with some newer films the poster artists get royalties whenever the art is used for a purpose other than theatrical advertisement. With older films, maybe the studio owns the artwork outright, and is not obligated to pay royalties. I can think of no other explanation as to why a studio would not use the original artwork on a DVD release.
It's "From Hell" meets "The Time Machine"!
Hey, maybe Warner should market it like that?
I loved this film as a child. It's great to know the film is 2.35:1, that'll guarantee an anamorphic widescreen release. I too would love to hear a Meyer, McDowell, Warner commentary.
Just when you think you're up to date with that your upcoming buys are!
Re: "I too would love to hear a Meyer, McDowell, Warner commentary."
And just what, Patrick, do you have against Mary Steenburgen?
HA! How weird! I've always loved this movie, and I got to see it for the first time in YEARS the other night. I even posted about the whole experience!
Needless to say, I'm thrilled to hear that Time After Time will soon be available on DVD. Better be OAR though...
David, where did you find that cover art? Is this from an official source?
Does all upcoming cover art from snapper-case DVD releases show the snapper side bar? To me, the cover looks a LITTLE too much like a photoshop home-job.
Not that I don't WANT it to be real. This is one of my favorite movies and has been on my most-wanted list since I bought my first DVD player. I'm just a bit skeptical. Last I heard, there were no plans for this to be released.
David, please tell us more. I really want this disc!
This is a great, great film.
I am looking forward to this on DVD very, very soon please Warner!
One of my childhood favorites. My dad took me to see this on it's original release and we both loved it. The DVD will be the first time I see it in widescreen since I saw it back in '79. Can't wait!
I'm not David, but I can confirm that the art is legitimate. It is the same art as on Warner's business-to-business website.
