Is anybody getting The Day The Earth Stood Still (Special Edition)?? I see it's getting a release on March 4th. The movie is really good so I'll probably end up getting it.

I'll probably get it!

This is one I have always always wanted to see, but just never have been able to. This is one of those street date purchases for me.

This sci-fi classic is an absolute must have for me!

I would have been happy just to have this on DVD, but with all of these extras and at this price... WOW!

March is going to be a GREAT and very expensive month. :D

It is a very good film. It even gets mentioned in the opening theme to Rocky Horror Picture Show.

looks like the Uk release is bare bones, so I'll be importing the r1. Now, if the original King Kong and Mighty Joe Young could get a decent DVD release as well!

Sounds like it'll be a superb release - keep 'em comin', FOX !.

Sounds like a great release to me. I havent seen it yet, but after the recommendations on my 50's sci-fi thread this one is at the top of my list.
