well my e-mail with the dec title showed up, some solid announcements, the question remains will these also receive a North American release after the Imprint releases, ( thinking along the Paramount Presents line)
I know , I have both releases, then there is War of the Worlds, but what this proves is the right steps by Via Vision/Imprint and some missteps on the Presents line.Very few (A PLACE IN THE SUN being one) of the Imprint releases have been released under the Paramount Presents moniker here in the States. That could and probably will change in time.
Pretty sure Dragonslayer is only Paramount in the US, with Disney holding the international rightsThey're going back to Paramount titles after a few months' hiatus. Maybe DRAGONSLAYER will be upcoming, with a commentary and behind-the-scenes f/x documentaries. This batch has a few titles not yet available in the U.S. In particular, I am interested in COUNTRY GIRL ands NAKED JUNGLE.
The Blu ray of "The Country Girl" is listed on their site as being in "it's original Asoect ratio of 1.33 to 1. I believe that the film was released in December of 1954 in 1.85 to 1. This would mean that they just put out the old Paramount Academy Ration DVD. Too bad.
