Universal announces dates for new Scarface and Animal House SEs!

According to DVDFile:
Rounding out today's news area couple of new street dates from Universal Studios Home Video. Hitting shelves on September 9th is a new 20th Anniversary Edition of the Brian de Palma bloodfest Scarface, starring Al Pacino as the legendary Tony Montana. And due on August 26th is (no joke) National Lampoon's Animal House: Double Secret Probation Edition. Both get anamorphic widescreen transfers and new Dolby Digital 5.1 remixes, and stay tuned for further specs...
Looks like the late August/early September period continues to get more expensive. At least neither is being released on 9/2.

Edited to correct grammatical error.

I just read the same thing in the Scarface post right above this one at the time. This is great news. I love the idea of Double Secret Probation Edition

Hopefully, restored anamorphic transfers since the current transfers already are and suck big time.

5.1 for Animal House!!!!! Hopefully restored video to boot....the old one was truly terrible in both departments. Truly exciting wonderful news!!!!!!!!!!

now what are all those bootleggers going to do? I hope they really give the Scarface cover a makeover to make it very obvious when someone is selling an old one.

Nope, they've already changed their specs to reflect this news...

As far as I know, the previous release of neither film was anamorphic.

Anyway, this sounds good. Now, if only they could announce the extras for Scarface soon so I'd know what to do with my R2 disc with the improved transfer. If there's a commentary track, that baby will be for sale so fast...

Wow, great news on Scarface...as long as the specs are good, this baby will sell huuuuge. Hell, as long as there is a good transfer I'm buying this, but I'm hoping to God Universal pulls out all the stops for this one.

They must know a huge number of people have been dying for this re-release....or let's hope so.

Don't quit your day jobs :-)

Great to hear these are getting re-released. If anything, just so I never have to read about the poor transfers again.

Great news on Scarface!

As for Animal House. 5.1..ehhh,current mono dvd sounded great & it is 16.9! So i will definitely not be upgrading this title. Besides Uni never includes the original soundmix on upgrades thus far.

Wrong

Animal House had 2 versions, a full screen one & an anamorphic collector's edition
