    I read at another forum that Columbia/Tristar has announced the release of Real Genius for a 6/11 release.

    My prayers have been answered, this tops my short list of most anticipated titles.

    Hope it has at least a little bit of special features.

    Whoohoo! I'm hoping for just a little bit of extras, deleted scenes or a commentary maybe?

    I saw this on the other forum as well, but haven't yet been able to find confirmation on any of the regular sites. Here's a stretch: maybe since Martha Coolidge was just elected president of the DGA, someone decided there weren't enough of her films on DVD. I think I read that Lost in Yonkers was announced today as well.

    [Edit] DVDAngle now has a short release news blurb on today's news page that includes Real Genius.

    If Columbia/Tri-Star releases Real Genius in pan and scan, someone's house will blow up due to popcorn. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Anyone know if Columbia also owns "Top Secret"? This is another Val Kilmer movie that my wife and I would love to come out.

    Paramount owns it, I believe it's supposed to come out later this year. They are WELL aware of our desire for it [​IMG]

    I don't know anyone who doesn't dig Real Genius. Extras would be nice, but OAR is the only real requirement!

    I love this movie. I hope there are a bunch of extras, but I'll be overjoyed with just the movie.

    I've never seen this movie in OAR, and the pans in P&S are incredibly annoying. If the 6/11 news is a false rumor, someone will rue the day!

    Man, if this is true, I will be very happy. Columbia has a habit of officially announcing their upcoming releases a little more than 2 months in advance, so if this is true, we should hear some official word by them by the end of March/early April.
