A Bronx Tale re-release?

Does anybody know if A Bronx Tale is going to be re-released on dvd any time soon? It's been a while now that the original dvd went oop and i would really love a 2-disc special edition of the film. Anybody have any info?

Yeah, I'd love to get a decent disc of this. Probably not until something happens with the Lillo Brancato murder charges.

I've seen Bronx Tale in the Wal-Mart $5.50 bargain bins - they are not quite OOP yet!

It seems to go OOP right when that kid got arrested for shooting a cop in NYC. Naturally, everybody wanted a copy of the film right away.

For anybody with a local FYE...they carry a line of budget DVD's ($8.88) of some recent hits, but once in a while I have seen a copy or two of A Bronx Tale in there.

I sure hope not. I love this movie. My grandfather is actually an extra in a few scenes, so that makes me want a new SE even more. I really hope someone pulls out the stops and gives us the 2-disc we all want.

I'd buy an SE in a heartbeat. One of the most underrated mob movies ever IMO. The "Come Together" scene in the biker bar is on par with Scorsese's best.

Because this thread calls for it:

<object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/SIIcObcQfyA"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/SIIcObcQfyA" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object>

The Beatles' "Come Together" is the PERFECT song for that scene....I've never heard such a better fit.

Re: A Bronx Tale re-release?

Any update? I am not even asking for a fancy 2 disc, or a blu. Just a re-release! NETFIX doesn't even carry it anymore.

Re: A Bronx Tale re-release?

There's a few new transfers of old movies that are available online but not on DVD- one of my favorites "Gas Pump Girls" (parts were filmed across the street from where I work now) has never been on DVD but it's now owned by MGM, and a widescreen transfer is available for download on Amazon, or you can watch it for free with commercials on Hulu. The transfer of "Hair" they have on Hulu looks like a new 16x9 transfer too.

I was in an FYE today and there was a sign on their wall advertising that they would exclusively start carrying A Bronx Tale tomorrow. I don't have any other details, but perhaps this is the pressed disc many were hoping for.

Hmmm, I have a FYE in my neighborhood--about a half-mile from where the events in A BRONX TALE actually took place. Hopefully, my FYE will carry it. I saw Chazz Palminteri do it as a one-man show--in dress rehearsal--about 20 years ago.

He has done that recently.

FYI, FYE has this now. I saw it today. It is a Focus Features, feature. No extra features. 'twas $12.99

I have the Amazon MOD copy which looks like garbage. How does this release look?
