Further DVD announcements...

The big gorilla (ha ha) of DVD announcements is discussed below. However, here's some other stuff due out.

Aside from the King Kong DVD due out to coincide with Peter Jackson's upcoming theatrical version, fans of the Kiwi director will be glad to learn of a new director's cut release of his pretty fun earlier film, The Frighteners. Apparently an earlier laser disc release featured a four hour (!) making of documentary. Will it be ported over to the DVD? (Probably not, since apparently this will be a single disc release. Morons.) Details to follow.

In the "Whatever, Dude" catagory, there will be a new, 2-disc "unrated" (see my earlier discussion of faux 'unrated' versions') edition of the greatest movie ever made, Alien vs. Predator, out in November. Details can be found here (under the Kong stuff), but the set is insanely loaded. I might have to try to rent this only to hear the commentary track Lance Henriksen participates on, although I haven't actually seen the movie yet. I know, my bad.

In better movie news, the long-awaited special edition of Mike Judge's cult comedy Office Space hits shelves on Nov 1st. Per "In addition to a new anamorphic widescreen transfer and audio commentary with writer/director Mike Judge, look for the Out of the Office: An Office Space Retrospective with Mike Judge documentary, the film's theatrical trailer, deleted scenes (including Peter Lies to Lumbergh, Happy Hour and Chotchkies, Peter Goes off on Nina and Tom's Mixed Heritage Called into Question), DVD-ROM extras and more."

Meanwhile, Dark Shadows fans will be glad to hear that the complete set of the 'revival series,' presumably the updated show with Ben Cross that ran several years ago, is to be released in October.

Alien vs. Predator was fairly dopey, but it was much better than Alien Resurrection.

I know, I know, praising with faint damns and all that.

I'm still convinced that someone was on a bender when they came up with the design for the partial human alien. You know, the alien with a nose?!
