Wargames and more
We now have some details for the upcoming MGM DVD releases of Wargames, The Package, Cyborg and Invasion of the Body Snatchers. All four discs will retail for £19.99...
Wargames (PG) will feature a commentary track by John Badham (Director), Lawrence Lasker and Walter F. Parkes (Writers), trivia, production notes and the original theatrical trailer. The movie also features a new DD5.1 soundtrack and a 1.85:1 widescreen transfer. From the sleeve, it looks like the transfer will be non-anamorphic - it states widescreen and then has 4:3 underneath hinting at it possibly being letterboxed.
The Package (15) features trivia, production notes and the original theatrical trailer. This one looks like it will feature an anamorphic transfer. The soundtrack will be stereo and the picture will be presented in 1.85:1.
Cyborg (18) features only the theatrical trailer but will once again benefit from a 1.85:1 anamorphic transfer and will also feature a pro-logic soundtrack.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (15) will feature a commentary by director, Philip Kaufman. This one looks like it will be non-anamorphic 1.85:1 with a stereo sountrack.
[UPDATE: Michael Kirk has confirmed that Invasion of the Body Snatchers is indeed non-anamorphic. However, it apparently does feature a great transfer all the same.]
