Raging Bull Special Edition?


#1

No, I haven’t heard any news on this, but I just noticed recently that all copies of the current Region 1 dvd are being pulled off the shelves in numbers and it was taken out of print a few months back. So, that poses the question, all signs seem to point to a Raging Bull special edition dvd being released, (possibly a 25th Anniversary edition as early as this coming Christmas) but has anyone heard any news of this?


#2

I heard a rumor that US will release the Region 2(not sure what region) special edition that already exists. You can get it on ebay. I hope this is true because i would definately buy this.


#3

A 20th anniversary edition exists in the U.K. Will there be a new region 2 version?


#4

I don’t see any signs of a new Region 2 dvd at all. The current anniversary edition is still in print and on shelves. The only reason I commented on Region 1 is because its been pulled off of all major store chain shelves.


#5

I thought the R1 release has been OOP for a long time. I’ve looked for it in stores for the last 2 years with no luck. The only place I can find it is on ebay and half.com. There are also a lot of bootleg asian copys, look out for a blue sticker on the front and the lack of a chapter insert. It was released in 2000, so its a pretty crappy dvd. No special features and a Non-Anamorphic transfer. All I hope is that RB and Goodfellas special editions to be released this year.


#6

Well, FYE and Barnes and Noble had it all the way up until this past Christmas, I know that much. I wish I had bought em then, but I had opted for the Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Criterion and the Taxi Driver dvds instead.


#7

I think they are just re-packing it. as far as I know, all those SEs (UK or US or Germany) are non-anamorphic and that sucks toad-balls


#8

i know that there is going to a special edition for mean streets and godfellas in a few month i cant fuckin wait


#9

There is? wow i didn’t know that - YAY! ;D

#16

The french track sucks! Its just in Mono and the sound’s not good, but it still that the video quality is incredible. The interviews are interestingand pretty funny
