THE EAGLE HAS LANDED is an MGM title, correct? I don't suppose they sprung for a new master and that's what Shout is releasing so I'm guessing this won't be demo material.
Oh, that it were that simple. It's an ITC/AFD property and was previously distributed in North America by Lionsgate. MGM holds theatrical rights (by virtue of its acquisition of pre-1998 Polygram Films output), but nothing else, with the exception of certain titles. Shout! now has the licence for North America, which could potentially migrate to another label at some point. My guess is that they will port the UK harvest. Whether or not they can improve on it in the authoring and compression process remains to be seen.

A 4K scan is unlikely, given Shout! Factory's business model. Sent from my iPad using Home Theater Forum mobile app
