BD announcement of the century: Troll 2 - Oct. 5th

Seriously.

It's also a two-disc set: one DVD, one BD.

It really ought to come with Best Worst Movie. And will the DVD be the Troll/Troll 2 double feature?

Maybe it will.

With as stingy as MGM is, I can't picture them giving us a double-feature -- half of which is a recent theatrical release -- for twenty bucks. I sure hope I'm wrong, though! The listings on Amazon and FoxConnect.com don't say anything about Best Worst Movie, so again...hopeful but very skeptical.

And will the DVD be the Troll/Troll 2 double feature?
I'm guessing it will be since that's the only DVD that's been released so far, and MGM probably isn't going to go through the hassle of producing a new one. Escape from New York was a double-sided disc too, so it seems likely.

...but maybe I'm wrong about the second disc being a Troll 2 DVD. It was announced alongside other DVD/BD pairings like Mad Max, so I'm just assuming that's the case here too. Maybe the second disc will turn out to be Best Worst Movie (on DVD or BD?) after all.

For sure! It would make a great companion piece. Although, you don't even have to have seen Troll 2 to enjoy Best Worst Movie.

It's certainly possible, it looks like they're releasing a stand-alone Troll 2 DVD on October 5th as well.

Here's hoping the disc is a new flipper: Troll 2 on one side, Best Worst Movie on the other.

That would be fantastic if they did release KKFOS, easily one of my favorites.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I am really excited about this announcement.

Wiseau said he's definitely working on it later this year.

Now the big question...will he use the HD camera's footage or scan the 35mm negative?

Please, let Super Mario Bros. be next. No trash cinema collection is complete without it.

This announcement is surely a joke... right?

How is this getting released and many classic films are still waiting ever so patiently for their due?
