Excellent news.

Hm, so what does this mean? I remember Taxi Driver was once up for pre-order, and that didn't turn out too well..

be wary since there's been no announcement or rumors, I remember when Bad Boys pre-order was put up on HMV 6 months before they even announced it!

Hopefully it's going to be one of Sony's big pre-Christmas releases. It's certainly been rumoured for long enough. (It would be great if Taxi Driver also finally appears before Christmas.)

I'm not sure what to think... this was supposed to come out already in 2008 along with "Lawrence of Arabia" and "The Guns of Navarone". But I do hope that this time it's really coming and the other two will also follow.

Huge announcement for classic BD fans. Looks like Sony's trying to challenge Fox (The Sound of Music) as the first studio other than Warner to release a pre-1970 Best Picture winner on U.S. BD.

The UK has it a little better, with Hamlet from ITV (and, if you count its one-time "Unique and Artistic Picture" Oscar, Sunrise from MoC); but the only four Best Pictures before Patton currently on U.S. BD are all from Warner--GWTW, Casablanca, An American in Paris, and Gigi (with Mutiny on the Bounty joining that list in November).

Looking for the release dates on both TSoM & Kwai to see who gets first dibs...
BD players: PS3 Slim 250GB; Sherwood BDP-5004 (region-free); HP P7-1010 (w/ LG WH12LS38K, AMD HD 6570, Hanns-G HL227, Altec Lansing 2.1 speakers, TMT 6, PDVD 11)
A/V hardware: Vizio E3D320VX 3DTV; Sony HT-SS380; Chromecast; Vizio Co-Star (Google TV); Radiient HDMI switch; Nook HD; Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4; Moto G; iPhone 3GS

Until an actual release date is announced by the respective studio there's no point in getting all giddy. In other news, Last of the Mohicans is being released October 5th.

THIS!

This is the type of thing that grows blu-ray. I know a bunch of people who have been waiting for more classic catalog titles. This fall, we're getting tons (Sound of Music, The Exorcist, Maltese Falcon, Treasure/Sierra Madre, Forbidden Planet, etc. etc. etc.)

Great news all around.

Default Bridge on the River Kwai up for pre-order

Without any fanfare or announcement that I've seen, Amazon has put The Bridge on the River Kwai up for pre-order. I'm a bit skeptical until I see an official release date but, if it's really going to happen, for me this is the greatest news in a month of great news
