Dawn of the Dead

Just in time for the remake they are releasing new DVD versions of one of the best horror films of all time!

DAWN OF THE DEAD: Martin: That's going to be our big release for 2004. It's going to be an amazing [set] ... we're still up in the air as to HOW MANY discs it's going to be. Felsher: To say it's going to be the biggest thing we've done is understating the matter. ... What our current plans are, and please, I wish I could write this above our heads: SUBJECT TO CHANGE -- because we've had so many false starts and stops on this project: We're going to have a single-disc version of George Romero's theatrical cut of the film. I have seen portions of the new high-definition transfer that was done and it looks stunning. Martin: It's amazing. You've never seen the movie like this before and that's before cleanup! Felsher: Even before cleanup it already looks miles better than any other version of the film. So, there's going to be a single disc of that, hopefully with commentary by George Romero and Tom Savini [FX guru]. Martin: We're scheduled to do that in two or three weeks. Felsher: We'll have that out in time for the remake of the film in March. ... Then coming in late summer will be a multi-disc edition of Dawn. At this point, it will be at least three discs and could go all the way up to five. It's going to contain at least two versions of the film: theatrical cut, plus the extended version. ... Just the other day, we recorded a new commentary with producer Richard Rubenstein. It's the first time he's ever done anything like this before and it's very, very cool. Martin: He talked about a lot of things I don't think he's gone on the record about before. That's just one. We're also going to do an all-new commentary, as Michael said, with George Romero, Tom Savini and hopefully Mike Gornick [cinematographer]. There's possibility of even a third. Felsher: We're trying to get a commentary with all four cast members. We know at least three of them are all about it, because I've talked to them at various conventions over the past couple of years. Martin: It's really just a logistical issue. Some of them are in Los Angeles. Some of them are out here [in New York]. We'll fly two of them somewhere ... Also, I'm trying to put together a "making of" featurette that will run a minimum of one hour, maybe 90 minutes ... very comprehensive coverage of the whole production history. We'll interview everybody. Felsher: He's already got interviews with Dario Argento, Claudio Argento, Goblin, everyone ... Martin: We want to do the project justice, so it's going to be quite extensive. It should be a lot of fun. Felsher: Another wildcard, as we're still talking to the licenser, is including Document of the Dead, which is a documentary Roy Frumkes did during the shooting of the film. We've already acquired a director's retrospective that will be on there. Then we're going to get trailers from all over the world. Martin: Hundreds of stills. ... Your thumb's going to get worn out before you get to the end of the still gallery. Felsher: We had six still galleries on Day of the Dead. We're probably going to have almost a dozen on this one. We'll also have the screenplay on there. Martin: Again, the goal is to produce the ultimate DVD version of this film, so stay tuned!

DOTD is among my top 5 all time favorite movies and I was so pissed when I saw the trailer for the new one. I am baffled as to why they continue to remake perfectly good films. I even heard that the majority of the film doesn't even take place in the mall and that they also removed the character 'Fly-boy' (/boggle). Anyhow, I just pray that they don't fuck this one up too badly

As far as them releasing the DVD, well I am stoked beyond believe! The old DVD was rare and I could not find it anywhere.

I honestly just bought what will soon be the "old" version. I hate that!

The mall in the flick was my local mall when I was a kiddie. My family and I ate dinner one night at the same table in the pic, when you can see the ice rink in the background. My brother played ice hockey back in the day when we lived in Penn Hills.

Sounds great! Wonder if they'll digitally "darken" the blood. That was the only thing off about an otherwise perfect movie.
