How many people have been on The Great Movie Ride down at the old Disney-MGM Studios, now Disney's Hollywood Studios (I hate the new name)? I'd love to be able to do a marathon of all the films whose played in the queue in order of appearance. And I loved this trailer.

Would be a strange marathon.

This is a speculation thread. Warner has not made any confirmation as of late. Wishlists.

Between this and Lawrence- I anxiously await.


I've heard Warners did a from-scratch restoration on this film. This is one I cannot wait for.

The UK release date is July 2nd so I presume the US release date would be around the same time.

I don't think Amazon ever had the date, I believe it was got straight from Warner.

A little Footlight Parade and The Roaring 20's wouldn't do you any harm.
(What trailer, btw?)

It would not surprise me if they did a great restoration.
I even rememer when laserdiscs were the rage and when dvds first came out Singin' In The Rain was given high marks of both formats.
I would think in the US Warner woud give it a digibook release, but regardless I anxiously await.

What we know so far:

When: 2012 to coincide with its 60th anniversary (suits love round numbers).

What:
Safe to say it may be a UCE? I'd prefer a digibook but I really want to see this film in hi-def.

The transfer: from what i've read online it's a from-scratch restoration. I'm expecting a spectacular release.

Release date: My guess is Spring 2012
Singin' in the Rain holds a special place for me ShellOilJunior. In my teens and tweens I couldn't stand musicals...I could never get past their stagey artifice. In fact, I quit my very first job as an usher (anyone remember those?) because The Sound of Music had settled in for a long, l-o-n-g run, and...just...wouldn't...go...away. For years afterwards, you couldn't pay me to watch a musical. It was the quickest way to brush me off from any group trip to the movies.

And then, in the 80s, I finally got enticed into seeing Singin' in the Rain by a Technicolor enthusiast with a pristine IB print...I simply didn't know how to say "No" to that, and am forever grateful I didn't. Since then, I've owned this movie in every home video format. But it's lasting legacy was that it finally allowed me to appreciate the artistry of the movie musical form on film, something I never saw before (and still don't) in the overblown Rogers & Hammerstein manifestation of the genre.

So Singin' in the Rain is definitely a touchstone movie for me, and I'll be there day one for its Blu-ray. With the recent Best Picture win of The Artist, a spring 2012 release would also be very timely. So bring it on!

Announced for July 16 in the UK. I'm sure we'll get it around the same time.

Don't feel alone: Four entire years of Sound of Music in theaters both popularized and blackened the name of musicals for an entire generation after it.
Even Mary Poppins retroactively suffered the guilt-by-association with G-rated Julie Andrews, and that's just not right.

It's not just that Singin' is "The musical for people who hate musicals", you could say that about just about any Gene Kelly musical. Even "Cover Girl".
(Then again, you could say that about almost any musical written by Comden & Green, like "The Band Wagon".)

And hey, "The King & I" was Rodgers & Hammerstein TOO, y'know!

The new restoration will be premiering at this years TCM fest in about 2 weeks, at the chinese the same theatre that the finale of the movie takes place at, and that held its world premiere back in 1952.

Wally - great comment. My family and I visit Disney World every year and love the Great Movie Ride. Each time I make a mental note to watch one or two of the movies featured in the ride. It's directly responsible for my personal discovery of many great Bogart and Cagney movies.

One of my favorite moments in the ride is when Gene Kelly is singing in the rain! Can't wait to own this on BD.

Those were the talents I began regularly checking out on Laserdisc and then later on DVD. Most of these movies I knew almost nothing about because I had completely ignored the genre for so long. My biggest surprise was not only were they fun to watch, and superbly crafted productions, but a heckuva lot smarter than I ever imagined. Many post war musicals, which seemed fluffy on the surface, were as sharply written in their book as the lyrics, with terrific performances on and off the floor. I was really reminded of this recently while watching Pal Joey. Snappy stuff.

That one falls somewhere in between for me EricJ. My entry point for it was Deborah Kerr, whose Black Narcissus remains one of my all-time favourite golden era films. And although The King & I was probably the most watchable Rogers & Hammerstein production for me, I've never been drawn back to it. I get its appeal; I just don't deeply share it.

My favorite musical. They better release this soon.

EDIT: Actually it's in cineplex odeon digital classic cinema in August so it likely won't be available until the theatre run is over.
