Agreed! Now if only they'd purchase all the Hammer horror titles and re-release them with anamorphic transfers!

Just read on the temporary Fangoria site that Shout Factory is releasing the original Gamera this coming May. Sounds good to me. This will be a must buy.

I want a multi-DVD set with the original (Japanese and English dubs), the American Albert Dekker version, and the Sandy Franks version.

Gamera is really neat, he is filled with turtle meat.

Now that Shout! Factory has Gamera and MST3k under the same roof there's been speculation of a release of the Gamera episodes but Cliff says the Gamera rights owners have no interest in that.

Sad to say perhaps, but I would think a MST3k Gamera bookset could very well outset the Gamera straight boxset.

From what I've read, Sandy Franks was really pissed off by what MST3K did with the films and refuses to renew the rights so that those episodes can be released on DVD.

http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=4373

"Shout! Factory has released the edition details for Death Race 2000 , which will come out on Blu-ray on June 22. This movie, the biggest box office hit for a Roger Corman production, is set in a world where the biggest entertainment is the three-day Transcontinental Death Race, whose winner is the driver who racks up the most points by killing innocent bystanders. The Blu-ray has been transferred from the interpositive film element.

Special features include:
Audio commentaries:
Roger Corman and Mary Woronov
Assistant director Lewis Teague and editor Tina Hirsch
David on Death Race: A brief look back from star David Carradine recorded in 2008
Playing the Game: Looking Back at "Death Race 2000"
Ready to Wear: In-depth interview costume designer Jane Ruhm on her inventive work for this film and other Roger Corman classics
Designing Dystopia!: A detailed look at the film's futuristic landscapes and now-classic race cars with co-art director B.B. Neel, car designer James Powers and car constructor Dean Jeffries.
Start Your Engine!: How the world of Death Race 2000 came to life, interview with original story creator Ib Melchior
Killer Score: An all-new interview with composer Paul Chihara on the creation of the film's eclectic score, which was also his first feature film composition.
Leonard Maltin interviews Roger Corman about Death Race 2000
Original theatrical trailer

Wow, now I'm really getting excited! That sounds like it's going to be an awesome Blu-ray.

Just got an email from Amazon saying the release date of the Death Sport disc has been pushed back to Aug. 3rd? That was one of the releases I was really looking forward to as I am a big Claudia Jennings fan.

Damn...just have to wait a little longer.

I got that email today from Amazon also, it looks like the release date has indeed changed.

Death Sport? You mean the new Death Race 2000 DVD from Shout! Factory, right? Also, Shocktillyoudrop has reported that the new release will have (and I quote), a "New Anamorphic Widescreen Transfer (1.85:1) in high definition from the inter-positive film element ".

EDIT: Never mind, I look at the Amazon page for the Death Sport/ Battle Truck Double Feature (which Chomp was right about it being delayed). Death Race 2000 will still be released in June.

Glad I sold my standard dvd of Death Race 2000 when I did. This Blu-Ray will indeed be the definitive release of this cult classic.

No. Death Sport is sort of a sequel to Death Race 2000.
