Taxi Driver - 4/5/11

Was looking on Amazon.ca and High Def Digest and it states releasing on Feb 3, but on Blu-ray.com theres no release date but theres one for Canada.

Is it cancelled?

was looking forward to his release since it was announced last year and since then there has been no word.

I ordered it through Amazon.ca. It isn't a bad deal and it comes out in 2 weeks.

From Blu-ray.com--
The Blu-ray release of 'Taxi Driver', which was initially expected for this time last year (see blu-ray.com, July 29, 2008), may be a reality very soon. Wal-Mart has this Martin Scorsese masterpiece up for preorder on BD with a release date of February 9. If the date is correct, this could be a retailer exclusive. Little more is known about this edition, other that it will reportedly come in a "Blu-ray book".
And from the comments section:
Just saw it listed for pre-order at $18.49 on Amazon so I don't think it's a Walmart exclusive

What's up with retailer exclusives? This never happened with DVDs?

yea this is actually annoying now. it was one thing when the retailers would get exclusive features or packaging or stuff like that on the dvd releases, but now that they are getting exclusive rights to sell a movie for a certain period of time is kinda dumb. id rather know i have choices of where to get a movie when it comes out instead of being 'forced' to get it from one store or have to wait until the exclusive time is up.

but back on topic, i cant wait for this to be released! i loved this movie and hopefully it gets a good visual upgrade on bluray!

I'd love to see the Scorsese commentary and isolated score track from the Criterion laserdisc included, but I won't be holding my breath.

The rest of your post seems to have been cut off. You know, the part where you explained how you came to know that, how credible your source is, stuff like that. Could you please add that back in?

Well, it was supposed to come out last Feb. and it never arrived. There's been no news about it this time either so I'm guessing it'll be the same situation all over again.

Wal-Mart's listed release date is now 12/31/2010. So much for that.

The are currently restoring this ala The Bridge on the River Kwai. I read an article that this is happening now and it will be released at the end of the year in the fully restored version. I hope they go back to the original color blood. They might have to do this digitally.

I hope that's right, about it being a digibook, although I know others will feel different.

That would be a cheap digibook since the list price is only $24.95.
