They released Ishtar and Troop Beverly Hills themselves. So nothing from Sony surprises me any more.

Gotta try to make as much money from the upcoming Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser as possible, which comes out DTV in July.

It's just sad that they're turning this of all films into a cash grab opportunity. That's not what Joe Dirt stood for.

Christine (1983)
The Indian in the Cupboard - 20th Anniversary (1995)
Jumanji - 20th Anniversary (1995)
Zathura - 10th Anniversary (2005)


No surprise with Christine that Sony is handling the re-issue themselves. If TT could sell 3000 copies in 8 hours that surely got Sony's attention.

First BD release for The Indian in the Cupboard. Jumanji and Zathura were released previously on BD in 2011.

I believe this is the first Twilight Time release to receive an American Blu-ray release after TT's license lapsed, right?

Yes, aside from the ones TT renewed & re-issued themselves.

Funny, last year Twilight Time said they had re-licensed Christine.

It most likely sold out so quickly partly because it was limited to 3000 copies. I don't a regular non-limited edition would sell so much so quickly because there's no need to rush, it's not a limited print.

Sure, but 3000 copies that fast still indicates a market Sony didn't foresee, regardless of scalpers. With all the content of the release needing just a simple repurposing to a new disc image it's a no-brainer investment in their part.

I was just thinking of Arrow's experience with Hellgate and Hell Comes to Frogtown, where most likely the 1000 copies sold out not because there was a market for the movies but because it was limited.

Sony could very well press 3000 copies of Christine and take 3 years to sell them out, and that would only further consolidate their view on how it's not interesting for them to do this kind of releases.

Zathura - 10th Anniversary (2005)


At which point does the home video industry surpass the greeting card industry for exploiting anniversaries?

Unfortunately, it hasn't been restored - they're showing it because Tavernier picked it

You Can't Take It With You at bluray.com

Where does this line up with other Capras? Closer to It Happened One Night, or the message films?

It's lightweight, the only message is to have fun and let loose, you only live once, &c. It's an okay film, but not one I'm in any hurry to upgrade
