Nothing that big in terms of extras, but at least it should be anamorphic.

20th Century Fox Home Entertainment will release "12 Angry Men (50th Anniversary Edition)" on DVD this March 4th.

Extras will include: "Beyond A Reasonable Doubt: Making 12 Angry Men" and an "Inside the Jury Room" featurette.

I don't own the previous release; good thing I held off as long as I did.

Fab! A release of the Showtime remake with jack Lemmon would be nice as well.

Actually, this is annoying. They just released 12 Angry Men (Decades Collection with CD) on 12/4/07. I recently saw the play and was going to pick the DVD up. Glad I didn't. Thanks for the heads up OP.

Cool. I really didn't want that silly decades collection one. This should be better, I'm in. :)

No commentary track with Sidney Lumet?

Yeah, without one I won't be bothering to double dip.

Well considering you'll get an anamorphic video, finally, I think that solely is worth double dipping on this classic.

I really love that cover!

It figures that 1 day (1!) after I order the DVD off on Half.com, this is announced. Ugh.

I was just thinking about that one. Guess there's no chance they'll include it as a special feature with this release.

I suppose Fox isn't even considering a Blu-Ray release for this... :(

Nice.

I'll second the motion that William Friedkin's excellent 1997 remake needs to finally be released as well.

Great news. Another title I held off on so long it's getting a SE.

I sure hope the audio is remastered. The scene when it's raining outside is a mess. I can barely hear the dialogue over what sounds like a shower of breaking glass.

There still isn't an anamorphic release of The Abyss. In Region 1 at least...

Great cover but 50th year ed. deserves more special bonuses especially a commentary track!

Meh. Nothing against the quality of the remake on its own, but the original is a rare case of a movie being virtually flawless that no remake is necessary.

There is even a remake made in Russia earlier this year:

It isn't an issue if the remake was necessary or not. The issue is a remake WAS made and hasn't made it's way to DVD yet. That's really annoying. I have yet to see it and just based on the cast and director alone of the remake, it deserves a DVD release.

Hopefully it's a rights issue and not one of just a company never getting around to it.

And why no Lumet commentary track? Anamorphic is nice, but a 50th Anniversary edition and no commentary? That making of better be nice and lengthy.

Just a heads up; Next weeks release of this DOES indeed include an audio commentary it is not Lumet but instead it will be a full-length Audio Commentary with Film Historian Drew Casper.
Very cool we will be getting commentary on this.
