Old School will be released on June 10th from DreamWorks Home Entertainment.

The comedy will be released in a standard R-rated version, as well as an uncut and unrated "Out of Control" version containing an additional two minutes of never-before-seen footage. The unrated version will come in separate anamorphic widescreen (2.35:1) and fullscreen releases, each featuring English and Spanish DD 5.1 audio and subtitles. The R-rated cut will apparently be issued in fullscreen-only.

Bonus features will include a commentary track with Ferrell, Vaughn, Luke Wilson and director Todd Phillips, a blooper reel, deleted scenes, "Will Ferrell: Inside the Actor's Studio" skit, footage from the film's premiere, Fantasy Wrestling, a Snoop Dogg music video and trailers. Retail is $26.99.

So essentially anyone wanting to rent from Cockbuster will be getting not only the R-rated version but a guaranteed Pan & Scan. Sure, the cinematography isn't class A Vittorio Storario work, but that's just stupid coming from what has been consistently the best DVD studio at handling their small catalogue of titles.

Well, I doubt there's gonna be enough footage in the "2 minute" extended edition that would cause a nc17 rating. They just add in a couple minutes, don't submit it to be rated, and call it unrated for the marketing. Of course, I'll still get it. I loved this movie.

Yes I immediately thought the same thing, but any Blockbuster that does stand directly under the corporate umbrella and has more freedom to get titles in Widescreen could also probably get the un-rated version as well. Still you have to wonder about the mentality there. I guess I can see it from the Standpoint that W/S fans would probably be more in favor of getting the un-rated version anyway, but I can see how it could complicate things for the rental market. It would make more sense to have the theatrical in W/S P&S and have the Un-rated version be in W/S only. I can't believe that Dreamworks would try to release this without a Ferrell, Vaughn and Wilson Commentary as well, you would think that would be the first extra they would try to get. Maybe they did try to get it, but couldn't.

If Cockbuster does what they have done for previous titles, they will stock the unrated version (ex: Sweetest Thing, Van Wilder, and American Pie 2). And knowing them, they'll be carrying the pan and scan release.

And if it's like the Road Trip DVD, the extra footage will just be extra nudity. :emoji_thumbsup:

I sae this on Inside the Actors Studio 100th episode, it kinda fell a little bit flat. James Lipton was being interviewed by James Lipton (Farrell)... and I think they said "delightful" about 100 times...

I would perfer the SNL skits where Farrell interviews Dustin Diamonds and the like.

I would buy this dvd. But, my wife and I are going to the Home Depot to look at flooring. And if we have time we might go to Bed, Bath and Beyond. :laugh:

This movie will be mine on June 10.

Excellent. I saw this during a sneak preview and laughed the entire time. I don't think I've seen a movie as funny as Old School since Zoolander.

also be sure to wear your Pabst Blue Ribbon shirt while listening to White Snake and working on your red Trans Am.

I don't suppose there's any chance that the extra scenes involve more of Elisha Cuthbert's tooshie? That would be worth something.

I saw where there's supposed to be a commentary with the director and cast members. Let's hope Ferrell and Vaughn
are involved. I'll be buying this one.:D

DVD Review is reporting that it is actually the other way around (sort of) The theatrical version is being released in WS/FS and the Unrated Version is WS only. Which is right? The WS only on the Unrated would be more consistent with the trend that the more "Specialized" version of a title gets WS only (FOTR: EE, Red Dragon Director's Edition etc.) while the more basic gets the WS/FS dual release

I'm looking at the press materials right now, and they say "Unrated Edition" with separate anamorphic widescreen and fullscreen and "R-rated" fullscreen.

So unless something has changed from universal's press materials, I'm afraid that it's DVD Review that's got it the other way around.

Well, It's an odd decision. Too bad because you know alot of people here are going to be angry that the theatrical will not be available OAR.
