Withnail and I

Thanks to Retronana we now have the confirmed specs for the upcoming Region 2 release of Withnail and I from Anchor Bay. The DVD will feature:

  • A completely uncut widescreen transfer of the film supervised by Director of Photography, Peter Hannan
  • A new Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack
  • A 53-minute documentary entitled 'Withnail & Us'
  • Rare pre-production photos by Ralph Steadman
  • The original theatrical trailer
  • Limited edition collectable poster of the original film art by Ralph Steadman.
Expect this disc to be released on 12 November retailing at £19.99.

It's also worth noting that over at the R2 Project, Andy has spoken to the PR people and has news that Paul McGann has agreed to do a commentary track. It does sound like the Region 2 disc outperforms the Criterion release (reviewed here) by some margin.
