Depends on the release. Also in the case of Fright night there are now 8000 copies from TT and a bunch from Germany France ect. Christine also has good foreign releases. But before that they were both going for insane prices.

Yeah, I looked at FN and NOTLD, which were the two I had experience with.

Latest update on a potential re-release of Christine:

From TT's Facebook page in response to a question if it will be released this year:

Quote:
Twilight Time DVD Label No, it isn't.
And a follow up question if TT plans to re-release it in 2016 or later:

Quote:
Twilight Time DVD Label There is a chance the film may be re-released in future, although not necessarily by us. Studio slates are always in constant flux, and our job, as we have explained many times before, is to be a "premium platform" for certain titles that may or may not be given a wider rollout down the line. Our 3,000 unit model has proven very successful in identifying for the majors which titles might be given that opportunity.

So, now we have 2 titles to speculate on since they had said (I think) that 4 will be re-released by them?
(first 2 were Fright Night and Journey to the center of the earth)

Then, I'd be interested in Mysterious Island and The Blob!

It's not the Blob as it hadn't even been released at that point let alone its been less than a year since its release.

Since Christine seems to be out of the running -- which is odd, as I thought TT had confirmed it early on in the reissue discussion -- the most obvious candidates for the next two are Mysterious Island and The Big Heat. Neither was a quick sell-out (a year, plus or minus, for both), but both are early releases (and past their original 3-year exclusivity period) and have been sold out for a good length of time (3 and 2 years, respectively).

Out of the running for this year, which it was never in the running for anyway because their 3-year contract ends March 2016. At that point if Twilight Time don't license it again someone else will (Arrow, Scream, etc.).

When I first read this post, it gave me a lift, as I picked up U-Turn as the freebie in the last Twilight Time promotion, even though it wasn't on my "wanted" list. It just so happened that I really wanted 4 other titles very badly, so why not take a flyer on the freebie as long as it was being offered. I was hoping to be surprised with an unknown gem (like you mention above), but instead I feel bad in saying that the movie didn't work for me at all. Different strokes for different folks I guess.
So many blurays, so little time.

Same thing for me with the much hyped Zardoz, I even tried watching it twice, ended up selling my copy

Zardoz was a blind buy for me too. I haven't watched it yet though. I'm expecting it to be weird.

(FWIW, I have my autographed U-Turn listed in the trading forum, if anybody is interested).
