    I saw that Scarface (i'm assuming it's the Pacino version) is to be re-released theatrically on September 27th? Anyone know anything more about this? I'm sure a dvd version will follow...
    Check it out here.

    I read a long time ago about a movie named Scarface that had something to with Jay-Z (the rapper). I don't know if they were putting his music into the movie or if its a remake. I don't know if the Scarface you are talking about is the Al Pacino version. Where did you find this out?

    Lord I hope so. The Pacino DVD is an embarrassment. About the only thing good I can say about it is that there are some extras and it hasn't locked-up. The picture and audio quality are abysmal and only harm the legacy of this quintessential 80s flick.

    Hi
    Agreed as far as transfers go "Scarface" needs work. I'm glad a new release is coming but I am hoping that if the Rap track is included that the original Soundtrack is also available as an option. It could be a selectable option on the DVD.

    Of all places to hear it Best Buy staff said that all of the old Pacino Scarface DVD's have been pulled off the market getting ready to this re release to celebrate an anniversary. Can Anyone verify a release date?

    I'm BB staff... and I tend to think I'm more knowledgeable than most about DVDs.

    But it looks like they got it right -- I THINK the anniversary is late 2003 (20th anniversary, I think).

    I haven't heard anything though.

    IMDB gives a US release date of December 9, 1983.
