It seems that many people have had issues trying to find this re-release. I went to my local Best Buy on the release day and came away empty handed. I eventually ordered it from Bestbuy.com when they had a promo going. However, even now, I still do not see it readily available at my local B&M stores.

Circuit City and Wal-Mart both carry the SE version of this film on DVD.

deepdiscountdvd.com has it for $13.99. Unfortunately you missed the sale when it was $8.99 a few weeks ago.

Maybe you did see the new one? It's not particularly flashy looking. All it says is "Collector's Edition" in a blue banner up top. One disc only. It's not a big flashy re-release (ala Scarface)

Hey guys (and gals) some questions on this.

All the online pics I see of the collector's edition have a plain front with no WS or CE banners. I saw one today at CC that also had nothing on the front, but also didn't list any features or anamorphic on the back. It was marked 22.99 but figured it'd ring up less than that (i didn't check)

So, was that the old version, or the CE? Any other way to tell? Would just go the DDD route, but it's only available in the 2pack.

Weird, I was just wondering the same thing.

I cannot answer you for sure, but I can say that every time I have been in Circuit City over the past couple of months, the NEW Anamorphic version has been $14.99.
