Does anyone know? /Rudnert
this is a thread in the regional section about the Greek release of OUATIA,
There are plans to have both discs released next year from what I found at the Rumour Mill from the Digital Bits.
Hope this answers part of your question
This is the last that I've heard about both.
Warner is rumored to be releasing America on DVD in 2003.
Martin from Paramount stated last year that West was in the pipeline.
Since then I've read that there were/are some legal issues which is holding the West DVD up.
Re West, it's not legal issues so much as getting our hands on original material to make the extended version. It's a long story.
I'd buy 'em both in a heartbeat!
Thanks for the response about West, what about America ?
Give us a hint as well.
Thanks for the response. I'm drooling in anticipation.
See my post above. Paramount does not own America, Warner does. Martin obviously won't be able to answer your question.
Jim_K You're right ofcourse. My mistake, I should have known about this in the first place as I replied to some of the same threads as well. :b :b Does not change the fact that I look forward to both releases in the meantime. Oscar Merkx
Count me in for Once Upon a Time In America. I never saw the West film but will wait until there is a oar dvd of this film.
West is a terrific picture, to my mind even better than OUTAIAmerica. Such a great opening, with the reveal of who exactly the vicious killer is.....fabulous cinema!
I agree with the opening of West, very powerful indeed and very silent indeed.
I've never seen West, but I'm getting very interested in it. The director of Amelie, Jean-Pierre Jeunet mentioned it as one of two movies that influenced him the most (along with A Clockwork Orange). America is one of my most anticipated titles. I can't wait to see the full version in OAR. I hope Warner is still on schedule for next year. Rob
Maybe AMERICA will be one of Warner's new upcoming 2/3 disc S.E's, like TRUE ROMANCE, SINGING IN THE RAIN (and the upcoming BLADE RUNNER) seem to be.
I just sold my LD copy of Once Upon A Time In America on ebay for $40.00 anticipating a DVD release in 2003. I hope I made the right decision.
Martin - thanks for the update. Have you or someone at Paramount been in contact with Don Bruce? He recently spent some time at the Leone estate, and is very involved with various people who worked on Leone's films. Check his website for more information.
Whose got the rights to Fistful of dynamite?
great site as I had not seen this before
Man, I know both of these have been discussed for some time and I'm very excited for the day(s) we see both of these in sparkling new DVD editions, but I just can't relinquish my widescreen LDs of these two.
I found OUATitW widescreen and sealed for $19.99. And it wasn't a punchout...and for laser that was a heckuva deal. As for OUATiA, that was a Columbia House freebie and I'm just going to have hang onto it until the DVD is in my hands.
BTW, the BFI Modern Classics book on OUATiA is a good read with plenty of color stills. Check it out.
