Bond Is Back!

No specs have been revealed as of yet, but separate widescreen and pan & scan editions will be releaed, each retailing $29.95. Expect a full announcement in the coming days…
How Long Is It?
In late-breaking news from Universal Studios Home Video, the next Best Picture Oscar nominee to get a DVD release date is Roman Polanski’s highly-acclaimed THE PIANIST, now consider a dark horse favorite by many to take home the gold. Universal will release the film on April 15th in separate anamorphic widescreen and full screen special editions.
It Was A Huge Disappointment To Me
Buena Vista Home Entertainment has just announced a July 1st retail date for Martin Scorsese’s GANGS OF NEW YORK, the auteur’s controversial epic that has drawn reactions right down the middle – some love it, others hate it. I hate it. No specs have yet to be announced for the release.
Coen Brothers Coming Soon!
Just in are the long-awaited details on two Coen Brothers cult classics finally making their DVD debuts, BARTON FINK and MILLER’S CROSSING. Fox will issue both films on May 20th, each with newly-remastered anamorphic widescreen transfers and English Dolby Digital 5.1 surround tracks. Neither include audio commentaries, but there are some extras: Barton Fink features 8 deleted scenes, while Miller’s Crossing includes cast interviews with Gabriel Byrne, Marcia Gay Harden and John Torturro. Both feature trailers, and retail is $19.95 a pop!
Finally, Big Rumours!
Word coming in from retail sources is that Fox’s DAREDEVIL: Special Edition will street in early to mid-June (the 10th is the date that’s apparently being targeted). If everything holds together, that same day you can expect SOLARIS as well. And JUST MARRIED will follow later in the month.
