Ricochet (1991) DVD, were there 2 releases?

Hi,

Found out from a friend that on a 1998 pressing on DVD of the film Ricochet starring Denzel Washington and John Lithgow, there were the trailer and TV spots but recent copies have shown otherwise. Was there a release that had the trailer and tv spots and if so whats the best way to recognize that release?

I think that's doubtful. You can tell the 1998 release because it shipped in a "snap case"...a plastic tray with a wraparound cardboard cover and a snap closure. Only a handful of studios used these: Warner Bros., Image, HBO...and that may be it. By the early 2000's these were getting phased out in favor of keep cases. Here's the snap case version from EBay:

note the photo of the back cover listing all the special features with actual screen shots. The most unique feature is "Cast Bios". DVDCompare says the same thing:

There was a 2005 re-release, which may have shipped exclusively in the 3-film "Denzel Washington Collection". See https://www.ebay.com/itm/Denzel-Wash...sid=m570.l1313 . This was from Warner Bros., but the photo suggests it was still a collection of the old snap cases. I don't think there was ever more than one disk.

Hope that helps.
