This year is so filled with releases. I can't keep up!

Anyway, this looks great. Definitely a purchase for me.

damn, a digibook release. in the quest to upgrade DVD to HD, these are a real PITA. they just add additional expense. i just want HD upgrade. don't give a flying fart about a bloody "book". fingers crossed they'll release in UK with a non-digibook "cheaper" edition.

Aw yeah! While I am not the biggest fan of this movie, I do enjoy it. The fact that it is a digibook seals the deal for me.

Add me to the list hoping for a UK release of the film only in a standard case, like The Color Purple. Hate digibooks.

The article says it's a BD with the film and a DVD with the recycled 2008 doc "Warner at War".

Assuming the BD will also include the 1hr making-of doc narrated by Martin Sheen that was on the laserdisc and DVD. Hoping to get that disc alone from the UK and avoid the book and DVD.

What's that, like 9 probable Spielberg Blu debuts in 2012? Yowza. That's my biggest frustration going from DVD to Blu, being able to own a director's complete filmography and then suffering through years of HD catch-up.

I loved this movie when I was very little. Like 7 or 8. An odd movie for a child to like IMO considering It's subject matter. I haven't seen it in 15 years or more probably but I'll pick this one up for sure.

I'm hoping Paramount (if I'm correct, they got the rights to it) releases Munich as part of their centennial celebration. And hopefully Catch Me If You Can.
