Mm-hmm. I always enjoy hearing new info reguarding dvd releases and what each contain etc. I often do searches and find that not all sites give us all the dvd releases. Always see something pop up in the store and think "gee, now why didnt that site mention this one". Anyways, the more the merrier for me.

Is this the cut that shows the 3 villains being escorted out in handcuffs from his Fortress of Solitude at the end of the film?

"Hellraiser III" to Get Re-Released August 8th

Hellraiser III
From horror legend Clive Barker comes "the ultimate in fear!" Dan Scapporotti, Cinefantastique. Some call him the Black Prince of Hell. Some call him the Angel of Suffering. The horror fans everywhere, he's Pinhead (Doug Bradley), the urbane, spike-faced minion of evil with a bloodlust for human souls. Now Pinhead's back in the most diabolical Hellraiser of them all - Hellraiser III: Hell On Earth!

TV reporter Joey Summerskill (Terry Farrell, Back To School) is on assignment at a local hospital when a bloodied teenage boy is rushed into the emergency room. As Joey watches, the writhing boy is literally torn apart by chains impaling his body. Fleeing the carnage, Joey follows the victim's girlfriend to a downtown nightclub, the Boiler Room. In the apartment above the Boiler Room rests the owner's newly purchased sculpture: A pillar etched with distorted figures and faces. Among the frozen images is Pinhead.

Tonight he shall be released.

This is a great thread JRs, thank you for the hard work and time.

I was wondering what you think about the Blue ray/Hd-dvd technology and if you have any "insider" knowledge of release dates of players and media. Every place I look is different in their thoughts and dates. I know that High def Tv is an amazing thing to watch in comparison to regular tv, but it is costly. What will these new DVDs cost? Any input would be great..Thanks.

I know all about that.

Anyhoo, I reported DVD news for the media for over almost over a year and I know what I am talking about. The 14-Disc Superman Box Set will be put out Tuesday, June 27th - the week of the theatrical release of "Superman Returns". Along with a collaboration of a bunch of other Superman releated DVD titles.

As for the documentary "Look Up in the Sky", it will be released first June 20th and then on the 27th with the collection.




So we'll be able to buy Superman Returns on DVD the week it's released in cinemas?

Those players are too pricy for the moment. Better to wait to see who wins the battle between the HD and blu-ray anyways. And dont forget the expensive hi def t.v. that goes along with it.

I like the U-571 cover there. Nice picture.

I wonder how they choose which dvds they convert first to the buyers?
