    Probably never. I doubt George Lucas would let this be released again. From what I've read, he's disowned this.

    Probability of it being released: Zero per cent.
    Probability of me purchasing it if it were released: One hundred per cent.

    The accountants crying for a few hours probably! Any release would be welcomed. Its not that bad a film. There have been many less entertaining flops

    I'd rather have Universal re-release Xanadu as a 3-disc special edition rather than release Howard the Duck at all. [​IMG]

    I'll buy it. I'd buy a used laserdisc of it even, if I ever find one!

    If the other atrocities that George Lucas is responsible for ("Radioland Murders", "More American Grafitti") can be made available on DVD, so can "Howard The Duck", but I doubt anything special would be produced for the DVD. Whenever it is released on DVD, and I don't think there's any big rush to get it released, I don't see anything more than a bare-bones release.

    I'll be happy as long as it includes the movie!
    I have the soundtrack LP; it's a digital recording but it was never issued on CD!

    Sorry man [​IMG]
    I didn't think however that anyone would think i was mentioning a forthcoming release! Howard the Duck, 3 disc set, ultimate edition. It just ain't going to happen!! [​IMG]

    Put me down for a bare bones release with any music promos that may have been filmed.[​IMG]

    I hear there's a 4 disc set of this, but it's currently only available in Guantanamo Bay.

    Hey c'mon this is one of THE 80's guilty pleasures, is it just me or is there more guilty pleasure movies in the 80's than any other decade? Weird!

    I'd love to have Howard The Duck on DVD even if it's a bare bones release. It laid an egg at the boxoffice and sadly I don't think George Lucas will be doing a commentary, but a trailer will be fine, um and an isolated score would be even finer, John Barry's score is far better than the film deserves.*quack* [​IMG]

    not if there really is a God in heaven...
    on the other hand, I propose a FOUR disc HTD-SE; the 4th being devoted to "THE LIFE, TIMES AND DEBACLES OF SIDNEY SHEINBERG" (former head of Universal) Included: The Sheinberg version of BRAZIL; The Sheinberg Version of LEGEND....and so on and so on...
