I'm wondering the same this movie, not counting low-quality imports and bootlegs, FINALLY for sale on an authorized DVD release? Amazon lists the studio as Paramount, so I'm hoping. I'm going to search and post here what I find.

Would also like to know. I have a cheap import, so I don't need another... Is strange that Amazon does not list much info. I too will wait....

But today's list price is not one of the 4 announced by Paramount. $25.99 matches neither edition of DVD or BD. Is this the Commemorative edition or the Standard? Come ON Amazon, get it right. You messed up on first few days with Alice in Wonderland and on Have Gun Will Travel season 4. But this time I won't profit from your error.

It has to be region 1, Amazon US does NOT sell other regions. US Marketplace Sellers MIGHT, but Amazon US "THEMSELVES" do not.
