Studio Double Dipping Warnings

I don't know if this has been done but how bout we start a thread where persons of inside knowledge can inform/warn us if a particular title will be re-release with a "special edition" so that us po' folks won't have to double dip?

Let me start with Electra and Meet the Fockers...any studio planning an uber edtion down the line?

Thanks.

There's a re-release list stuck right at the top of this forum:

Who said you have to buy a new edition if one is released?

If it is a Columbia Tri-Star release, you can count on a rerelease.

... with the widescreen version removed so that only the foolscreen version remains.

Considering how much $$$ The Passion made in theaters and in sales, and that the DVD has no special features on it, I'd have to say that's a safe bet for double and triple-dipping. Fox did the DVD, right? In that case, definitely.

If you could send them an e-mail, that may help to speed things along. I've been holding off on the original edition for this very reason... but Criterion won't respond to my letters.

Well, apparently Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Ridley Scott and Jean-Claude Van Damme want to do an audio commentary track together, and it's almost impossible to get them all together.

I refuse to watch Good Burger. It can't possibly do justice to the original Akira Kurosawa version.

Wrong. That was Yasujiro Ozu.
