No pc so posting by phone, so excuse the bare bones thread.
But great news, and hopefully more from touchstone in the works

I've wanted to see this movie again for the longest but haven't been able to so I can't wait. I'll definitely purchase this one day 1.

Good news but I'm disappointed it's looking like it's going to be a barebones release. I'd at least want a commentary track with Beatty.

Oh, wow. This could look eye-popping on BD if given some care...

Recently saw it on HDNet Mpvies and it looked superlative. Not really much they'd have to do to make it look good on BD. One of Pacino's most over-the-top (and fun) performances. Notable also for being the only other time Pacino and James Caan shared a scene since THE GODFATHER. Would have preferred more detective stuff and less of Madonna...but the production design made me wish a couple super-hero films would be done this way.

That was just a BS rumor.

Crious as to what the aspect ratio will be. Beatty shot it in 1:37 and (as he stated when the laserdisc was released) prefers that it be seen in 1:33 because he composed it that way to replicate comic strip panels. The HDNet showings were 16X9, so I guess the BD will be the same...but it would be good if the disc had both.

This was playing last month on DirecTV with what looked like a possible new master.
I was a little disappointed.

I saw this movie at a midnight showing when it opened back in 1990. I even still have the free T-shirt they gave out to patrons. I've always loved this film, and it will be a day one purchase for me.

There has been an HD master used for cable tv for a very long time. I recorded it off of Cinemax a while back.

I'm sure there is a "newer" master used for the blu...hopefully.

The HDNet showing was a noticeable improvement over the Cinemax one. Whether that's the one that will be used for BD, I don't know. But as I said earlier, it looked so good that not much else would need to be done if they used that HDNet print for the BD.

There haven't been new extras produced for any of Buena Vista's Blu-Ray catalog titles that I can recall -- especially not in this new wave of titles from Rocketeer onward. They simply splash an "Anniversary Edition" tag on the front cover and call it a day.

It's been on cable in HD recently and looked terrific. And the film was and always has been 1.85:1. That's how it was shown in theaters. It was never projected at 1.33:1. It was shot flat and many shots were opened up for TV, but some shots had to be zoomed in because of hard matting with the FX shots.
