Drugstore Cowboy (Meridian Collection) - October 14th

I read this over at dvdtown this morning:

Lionsgate will release "Drugstore Cowboy" under their prestigious Meridian Collection label on DVD this October 14th. The film stars Matt Dillon, Kelly Lynch, James Le Gros, and Heather Graham.

The Meridian Collection is a compilation of acclaimed, groundbreaking and influential films from around the world, debuted this past June with two celebrated films "Diva" and "The Red Violin."

Through Meridian Collection, Lionsgate will present significant works of world cinema in elite quality editions of the highest technical standards that celebrate their creative impact.

Special features will include: a "New digitally remastered print," "Drugstore Cowboy: A Retrospective - new featurette with the filmmakers and cast," a "Filmmaker Commentary," a "Making-of featurette," and a "Trailer."

Great movie. Count me in for a double dip as I would love to retire the earlier release by Artisan.

Love the flick, but not sure about another dip. Should be a nice release though, thanks for the info.

Does Lionsgate have the rights to Bob Rafelson's Mountains of the Moon? It was an Artisan title, so I thought they might.

If so, I highly advocate that for a Meridian release.

Pretty good news. I may snatch this up some time.

My fingers are now crossed in hopes of getting Matewan in the Meridian Collection.

If this is art-house fare my hopes of an anamorphic Extreme Prejudice and Johnny Handsome aren't gonna fly.

I still need to see Drugstore Cowboy, and my screenwriting professor did recommend The Red Violin to me.

In theory, I'd be all over this (though I'd rather have a Blu-Ray edition) but I was pretty unhappy with the Meridian "highest technical standards edition" (HA!!) of 'Diva' (check the dvdbeaver site for the ugly comparisons), and I don't have much faith that this will be any improvement over the old Artisan edition.

I sure hope reviews prove me wrong, though.

Why shouldn't this deserve its own thread?

Seems a bit speculative too me. Better to wait and see, I think.
