Monster Squad is coming from LionsGate in October? (merged)

*edited as it's an April Fool*


Could be (probably is) an April Fool, but...




Thanks to brainbug from Rue-Morgue forums:

A new DVD company called StoneStageFilms will release a 2-disc special edition of The Monster Squad on July 12, 2005. It will be presented with a new 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer and loaded with extras.

Also of note is that they are gearing up for Dekker’s Night of the Creeps for a similar release this fall.

Special features:
• Audio commentary by director Fred Dekker and writer Shane Black
• Audio commentary by stars Andre Gower, Robby Kiger, Ryan Lambert and Ashley Bank
• “Meet the Monsters” 37-minute featurette with Tom Noonan (Frankenstein), Duncan Regehr (Dracula), Carl Thibault (Wolfman), Tom, Woodruff (Gillman) and Michael Mackay (Mummy)
• “Meet the Squad” 26-minute featurette with Andre Gower (Sean), Robby Kiger (Patrick), Ryan Lambert (Rudy) and Ashley Bank (Phoebe)
• “On-Set: The Monster Squad” 18 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from 1987
• “Monstrous Creations” 14-minute featurette with special effects artist Phil Cory and the make-up artist Matt Rose
• “Monster Music” 12-minute featurette with Emmy-award winning composer Bruce Broughton
• “The Neighborhood” 10-minute featurette touring the filming locations including LA’s Natural History Museum
• “Scary German Guy” 9-minute interview with Leonardo Cimino
• “Monster Squad Cartoon” a look at concept sketches for the unproduced Saturday morning cartoon

Soon as I saw the thread title, I was suspicious cuz of the date. Here's hoping it's just a conincidence, though it's probably not.

It's a fake, look at how blurry the title logo is compared to the rest of the image.

Total fake. “Meet the Monsters” 37-minute featurette with Tom Noonan (Frankenstein), Duncan Regehr (Dracula), Carl Thibault (Wolfman), Tom, Woodruff (Gillman) and Michael Mackay (Mummy).
Jonathan Gries was the Woflman, not Carl Thibault, I would think a legit company would make a featureette with the correct actor.

Not only an april fools joke but a lame, lazy one at that.

Uh, you're wrong. By the IMDb, Carl Thibault was the Wolfman, Jonathan Gries was "the Desperate Man" ... which, coupled with your error, I tend to think means that he was the Talbot equivalent. Thibault was the one wearing the make-up, though, and playing the actual monster part of the monster.

This could still be an April Fool's joke, though.

I love it when people get their feelings hurt by an April Fools' joke so much that they call it lame and lazy. No, lame and lazy would be saying the Batman TV show is finally coming to DVD. With all the efforts put into this one though, it was actually good.

I wish this was true I want this movie on DVD so badly I probably bring up the Monster Squad thread every month. As soon as I saw all those special features I knew it was fake. We still to need to find who owns this thing?

From IMDB:

Production Companies
Home Box Office (HBO) [us]
TAFT Entertainment Pictures
TriStar Pictures [us]

Distributors
Image Entertainment Inc. [us] (USA) (laserdisc)
TriStar Pictures [us]
Vestron Video [us] (USA) (VHS)


So could Tristar be the one holdin out? It should be illegal to keep holding onto it and not putting it on DVD. Everyone should own this movie.

It's been a while since we heard any info about this. Anyone heard any new news on Monster Squad (or RAD!!)? I remember it was also supposed to be released by Pacific Family/Triumph on 10/28/03 (in addition to the OP statement of "StoneStageFilms on 7/12/05"), but those never came about. Why is this movie so elusive! I can't believe Monster Squad and Rad have not been released yet! By the way, I found an active petition for Monster Squad if anyones interested. Here's the link below.
