Meanwhile, the website Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Ivan Reitman has found rare deleted scenes from the original Ghostbusters in boxes in his personal storage. There are apparently a few boxes, but two of them are labeled “Fort Detmerring Ghost” and “Honey Mooners.” You can read more here.
In a bit of follow-up on a forthcoming title that we’ve been monitoring for several months now, it’s still looking as if FUNimation plans to release the English-dubbed version of Speed Racer: The Complete Series in May (retail links, like this one at Best Buy, suggest a street date of 5/30 and an SRP of $22.99) and then they’ll likely follow up later in 2017 with a more elaborate or separate SKU containing the original Japanese version Mach GoGoGo too. Fandompost.com has a look today at leaked cover artwork mock-ups for the initial Blu-ray and DVD versions which you can see here...
And finally, we’ll leave you today with a look at the Blu-ray cover artwork for Criterion’s May Blu-ray slate (plus a recently announced Shout Select title), which you can pre-order from Amazon by clicking on the images below...
That’s all for now. We’ll see you back here on Monday with reviews and more. Have a great weekend!
