|DVD news has been pretty
quiet lately, but here are a couple of brief items that caught my
First of all, the movie that launched Christopher Reeve's career, Superman: The Movie, will finally make its appearance on DVD in early May. There will be a load of bonus material as well as a new digital video transfer and audio remix. You can check out the full press release here, it sounds like it ought to be a winner. In addition to the "main" release, the other three sequels will also be released at the same time. However, they will not be special editions. A box set of all four Superman movies will also be available.
Secondly, fans of Thomas the Tank Engine will be happy to hear that Anchor Bay will be releasing a "Best of Thomas" DVD in the Fall. No details have been released yet, but based on the comments I heard at VSDA, it will be more than just a collection of shows. It'll be interesting to see what they come up with!
Finally, I've been receiving some additional info on the Dinosaur DVD problems. Over the past couple of months, MousePlanet reader Bruce Roberts has been updating me as he's been trying to return his problematic copy, and on March 26th he wrote:
Thanks Bruce, keep us updated! I too haven't heard if there will be any differentiation between discs, so we'll have to wait and see what happens. As for my personal experience with this disc, I received my copy of the Dinosaur Collector's Edition last week, and, fortunately, both discs worked just fine on my Pioneer DV-525 (it's about a year and a half old). Additionally, I noticed an interesting statement on Amazon's sales page for the Collector's Edition:
It's not terribly helpful for folks that want to buy it, and I imagine the uncertainty will ward off potential buyers until things get resolved. I'll keep monitoring the situation and provide updates as I get more info.
That's it for now, but stay tuned for more!
