    Hi Everyone,

    I've been waiting for some sort of PGL2 announcement for months now - have there been any updates? On the website, it just says that DVD information will be announced "soon" and that's it.

    I know that "The Battle of Shaker Heights" is supposed to be coming out in December, but I want to see the TV show / documentary about the making of it before I see the film. Does anyone know if there will be a simultaneous release of the full series + movie at the same time as the movie-only disc?

    Come on Chris Moore, don't let us down!

    Thanks,

    Bob

    Yes, I'm interested in hearing any news also. We made a trek to Cleveland to see the film (at the Shaker Heights Cinema!) and it was pretty disappointing. I will not buy just the single DVD.

    However, if they released a nice TV show box set with the movie on one of the discs, I would definitely get that.

    Well, I just read an update of sorts at E! Online... The full article is here:

    http://www.eonline.com/News/Items/0,1,13004,00.html

    But here's the relevant part about the DVD release:

    "Shaker Heights the movie, by the way, hits DVD on December 9, while a season two DVD box, featuring the aforementioned Bennifer pop-in, is rumored to be in the works for next winter."

    NEXT winter? What the heck? Why on earth are they dragging their feet with this release? I'm guessing that is has to do with the fact that HBO hasn't picked it up for the third season, though I would hope that they'd still release the discs even if there wasn't a direct benefit to them in advertising season 3.

    I hope they take this extra time to put in a lot of bonus stuff with Chris Moore, as well as multiple cuts of the film. I haven't seen any of the episodes because we can't get HBO up here in Canada, but I heard there was a pretty radical re-cutting done at the eleventh hour. It would be great to take a look at both cuts.

    It's a three-disc set with a special edition of the actual movie.

    I don't think I've ever anticipated a DVD release more than this! Project Greenlight series 1 was the most addictive television show I've ever seen.

    When this comes out July 13, I'm inviting a bunch of people over and we're going to watch the entire season straight through! I don't suppose there's any chance it will be released early?

    This comes out Tuesday... I can't wait!

    I haven't been able to find any reviews online (except for the ones on amazon.com) - are there any yet?

    Bob

    P.S. If you happen to know of a store in Toronto that tends to put discs out a day or two early, please send me a private message... I've been waiting to see this for almost a year now!

    Screeners were sent out. I doubt I'll have a review written before Tuesday, but I should have one at some point this week.

    Mine shipped on Friday from Amazon.ca.

    Got a great deal too. Ordered it for $36.58 cdn before they upped the price to $62.97 soon after.

    I am a little disapointed that there are very few special features for the series itself. Just a few deleted scenes. The film itself has a couple of features. The season one set was much better put together.

    Rats, wish I had pre-ordered this... That sounds like a great deal! I've never pre-ordered a DVD before, and it looks like this is going to be nearly $100 in the stores. Darn it, I'll pay that too, just because I'm so hooked on this show.

    I'll be buying it after work on Tuesday, though I'll probably stop by a few shops on Monday on the off chance they've got it out!

    Scratch that I just beat it (forgot Amazon does free shipping on orders over 25 bucks although it is quite slow). So here's Amazon's $27.99
