DVD's that have been released on dvd before and are confirmed or rumored to get a RE-release.

The list is based on information gathered from the internet and I have NO connections to the studios. There is a possibility that some of the titles might not get a re-release since the list contains also rumors.

Pretty much all of the bold titles are certain (some are on the fence). Some of the "confirmations" are from a while back and studios tend to change their minds. Anyway, don't blame me if a bold title doesn't get released.

This list hopefully prevents all the "Damn, I just bought this title and now it is being re-released" talk.

From the http://www.thedigitalbits.com/rumormill.html

According to http://www.Comics2Film.com :"The Tim Burton original, Batman, will contain lots of extras, like additional scenes, deleted scenes, trailers, commentary, storyboards, cast info and so on. The other movies in the series may also be re-released, but with fewer extras. Harvey speculates that Batman Forever may contain deleted footage as there was an estimated one hours worth cut from the movie."

I can't wait for these! I've came close to buying the old ones.

What's supposed to be new about the Commitments reissue? Anamorphic widescreen? I own the current release, which appears to be open matte.

Dances with Wolves

I hope this is the 4 1/5 hour version. I have it on LaserDisc, That is the only movie preventing me from ditching the LD player.

Goshdarnit, I’m sure I saw mention of a domestic release of the Tai Seng/Mega Star camp classics Zu: Warriors from the Magic Mountain and Naked Killer but I can’t remember where it was. Anyone able to confirm?

Also, anyone heard rumours of Fox re-doing the highly underrated Strange Days?

The WILD BUNCH re-release will only be RSDL-improved (dual-layered instead of flipper), but not 16x9-enhanced?

Does the list encompass any possible Criterion remakes? (i.e. is there any way of knowing what Criterion has it eyes on next?)

According to Anchor Bay's web site, Django and Django Strikes Again are coming out in late 2001. At this time, The Evil Dead is listed for "early/mid 2002".

Posted by Mikko Rasinkangas from Tyler_Durden's computer.

Jerry Maguire is coming in 2002. J M Kenny is doing the SE.

Added Lawrence Of Arabia.

Some details corrected.

Does anyone know anything of the following (I just know that they were in some occasion mentioned as a possible candidates for a re-release): Absence Of Malice, Crimes Of Passion, Dirty Harry Collection, Hard Days Night, Sleuth, Zombie. Since I’d like to know if they are on this list for nothing.

Have they already released the corrected DTS versions of the Jurassic Park movies?

Removed: Fly Away Home (Release 08/07).

Exactly which "Black Rain" are you talking about? The Michael Doglas film, or the Shohei Imamura film? Of course, the latter is what interests me most.

Is Run Lola Run being re-released with different material? Amazon has it on pre-order status. And if I'm not mistaken, which I could be, the MSRP has risen as well.

For those like JaseXF3, who are concerned about the cost of replacing DVDs in their collections, I'd like to suggest that you sell your current editions as soon as the new release is announced. That way you can get a decent price for the old one and lower the cost of the new one.

I'd like to see a new release of "Chariots of Fire", one of the few P&S titles I have left, but there doesn't seem to be one in the works that I can find.

I don't think Trainspotting is even tentatively scheduled for re-release at the moment... unfortunately Criterion doesn't have the rights.

Is there any word on Pretty Woman? Both dvd releases thus far (98 widescreen and 00 10th aniversary edition) have "bonus" footage added in, and I hate the bonus footage. There's no option to show the theatrical release on either disc. On the 98 release it's called "director's cut" and on the 00 version it's called "selected B Roll" film - both are horrid imo. So I'm hoping against hope that one of my favorite movies of all time will get a third proper release and allow the viewer to choose to watch the theatrical release in widescreen.

Otherwise I'll be forced to (gasp) re-purchase the vhs just so I can watch it without the extra "hooker" stuff. And in doing so suffer through pan and scan h*ll. I can't believe I bought this in vhs years ago, then twice in dvd form trying to get the "real" version. I'm pi$$ed.

None of the reviews I've read mention it is the DC...

Does anyone know the exact length of the Director's cut and the theatrical cut (the length on the cover doesn't help since they are always wrong)...

If the DC has been released, I'll take it off the list...
Well, the 10th anniversary B Roll version has a listed time of 125 minutes and when I skipped to the end (as the credits begin to roll) it says 124.5 minutes approximately. The widescreen DC version says 124 minutes, and the time when I skipped forward also said about 124.5 - seems to me the two versions differed by a few seconds but that's it.

Spot checking showed the same added in footage on both disks from the theatrical release, but I didn't bother to watch the whole thing.

As to the length of the theatrical release - you've got me, because it's never been released on dvd. And I got rid of my vhs over a year ago. IMO this movie should DEFINITELY be re-released in its theatrical cut - as of now, there are two versions "B Roll 10th Anniversary" and "Director's Cut" (which appear to be the same version of the movie, with extras on the 10th Anniversary disc as the only difference) - but no theatrical release option.
