The Police Academy Collection in April
Update 08/01/04: Revised details and release dates for these titles can be found in the following news piece.
Warner Home Video have announced the Region 1 DVD release of the Police Academy Collection for 6th April 2004. Arriving separately with a retail price of $14.97 each or as a complete 7-disc set with a retail price of $59.95, all seven films will finally be available to own on DVD with Anamorphic Widescreen transfers and their original Mono soundtracks. Sadly it would seem there are no bonus features whatsoever, but things could change between now and that April release (the first is certainly tipped to be an Anniversary Edition).
Here is a little reminder of the films...
