    Does anyone know whether Universal are planning to release Spielberg's Duel on DVD anytime soon? It was supposed to be in the works ages ago, but things seem to have gone quiet. Is anyone else as keen as I am to see a good DVD version of this great movie?

    Like you say it's been rumored forever, but I haven't heard anything lately. I did get all excited when I saw that Duel was being released, but it turned out to be some other film with the same name [​IMG]. It'll probably come out around the same time as Back to the Future and Song of the South [​IMG]. Right now Universal is too busy preparing the Super Duper Ultimate Collector's Special Limited Edition of Patch Adams to bother with Duel.

    I've said it around these parts before in regards to the Incredible Shrinking Man, but would anyone else besides me love a Richard Matheson commentary track for this film? He tells some great stories and is very opinionated. He's not getting any younger, Universal! Bring us Duel and the Shrinking Man!

    I believe Duel is out right now, I gotta go find it!!

    I am just dying for Back to the Future trilogy and Convoy, and then I'll be content for a while.
