Dawn of the Dead:Divimax SE - Available over 1 week before release date!
 
Picked up the new Dawn of the Dead: Divimax SE today at a local Kmart for $14.99. That's almost a week and a half before the March 9th release date if anyone is interested...

OldBoy 02-29-04 10:57 AM

Holy crap dude, I'm in Woodbridge also (Colonia), so post here or if you find one & I'll do the same:)

It's easily worth the $15.00.... The first version Anchor Bay issued sold for $30.00 and was an (ugh) FLIPPER disc (no dolphins were injured in the making of the film).

Drop 02-29-04 01:41 PM

Well I might go looking later, Sessa, so whatever my finding are, you can bet I'll have a report.

steebo777 02-29-04 01:41 PM

Must get this disc immediately. :drool:

K-Mart in Colonia3/Avenel & Best Buy in Woodbridge definitely don't have it out yet. I stopped by both today.

The question about double dipping is "how much will the box set be"?

I'm waiting for the box set personally, but I might change my mind when the price is released.

I'll buy the box set for around $40 max, but i'm not going to pay $75~ for one movie.

TomOpus 02-29-04 06:09 PM

Whoever finds one, don't forget to hide it first.

scarredgod 02-29-04 06:12 PM

ill wait until release day for a better price.

this is going to be the only DVD i ever bought when i knew, or thought, a new version will be coming later, which i will buy as well.

snoopydoggy2002 02-29-04 06:30 PM

nice one tomopus

LivingINClip 02-29-04 08:38 PM

Also got a copy at K-Mart, Somerset , Kentucky.

DarthMaul420 02-29-04 09:15 PM

I picked one up last Friday at K-mart. Couldn't believe it was on the shelf! What cut of the film is this supposed to be? I have the previous theatrical cut and the new version seems to have some dialogue missing. The "real brothers" speech isn't on my copy?

BlackBeauty92 02-29-04 11:12 PM

i believe it's the theater cut

the director's & international cuts will come in the next coming deluxe set

welb25 03-01-04 04:12 PM

I found it today, also at Kmart. Thanks for the heads up Father Karras. Darthmaul, if you read this review of the new dvd, http://www.dvdmaniacs.net/Reviews/A-D/dawn_2004.html it says that the first U.S. Theatrical Cut (also known as the Anniversary Edition) that Anchor Bay released had a scene or two included that was actually from the Director's Cut, making the Anniversary Edition more of a hybrid between the Director's Cut and the true Theatrical Cut. They say this new disc is the true theatrical cut but I have no idea if that's true, I wasn't around to see it when it was first released in 1978.

rsortor 03-01-04 04:30 PM

Another thanks to Father Karras! I picked it up at the Glenstone & Battlefield K-Mart in Springfield, MO.

Geofferson 03-01-04 04:47 PM

Looks like I'll be stopping by K-Mart on my way home...

Yes, that is true. I call it the "accidental cut". ;) It is actually my favorite of all the versions available.

sicklerice 03-01-04 05:21 PM

Why not wait for the big honkin' boxed set do out later this year?

What self repecting Romero fan doesn't already have the nonanamorphic release of the theatrical cut?

I'm waiting for that big bad mofo box in Sept.

If you want to excite me, tell me that you've seen the Media Blasters ZOMBI 2 in a store....

Hehe.
