Thanks for posting that link. That was a very cool Dante interview. I always love hearing him talk about movies because he's always informative and brings a sense of enthusiasm.

The release was confirmed in a recent pretentation reel which includes releases from the past, present and the future. You can watch the presentation reel here:

Shout Factory.

If only, but it doesn't look like it's happening any time soon.

I fully suspect, what with their influx of Universal licences, that Shout Factory will get to THE 'BURBS at some point. Hopefully MATINEE too. But anyone who really cares about films should have a multi-region player anyway. It opens a whole world of possibilities to you.

The 'Burbs UK Blu-ray will probably be announced by Arrow on Wednesday. This picture is from their Facebook page.

Between this and their Lifeforce release, it might be time to get a region-free player. smile

But I'd be happy if Universal simply released their "Tom Hanks Comedy Collection" on Blu-Ray: The 'Burbs, The Money Pit, and Dragnet in one convenient package, like they did on DVD. (The Money Pit was on one disc while the other two films shared the second disc.)

I am so glad that there is a discussion for my favorite Tom Hanks movie The Burbs. Out of all my dvd and blu-rays, The Burbs has the top rotation of my tv entertainment. Why don't they make movies like this anymore? It's a simple, fun story with good, clean jokes.

No Hanks, Dern, or Ducommun (at least) involvement in the documentary, according to further discussion in that Twitter thread. That's a bummer.

(I'm open to suggestions.) smile

Arrow Video has finally announced the specs for their Blu-ray release which is coming out on September 15. A steelbook release is also available. The disc is region B coded only.

We're thrilled to finally unveil the full specs for our upcoming release of Joe Dante's tongue-in-cheek horror classic The 'Burbs. So excited were we, in fact, that we decided to film a special report direct from the suburbs to mark the occasion, and here it is!

We think this package is a real corker and we hope you agree! Here are the specs in all their glory:

- High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation of the Theatrical cut, newly-restored from the original film elements
- Original uncompressed 2.0 Stereo PCM Audio
- Isolated Music and Effects Soundtrack
- Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
- New audio commentary with writer Dana Olsen, moderated by author Calum Waddell
- There Goes the Neighbourhood: The Making of The ’Burbs - A new feature-length documentary including interviews with Dante, actors Corey Feldman, Courtney Gains and Wendy Schaal, director of photography Robert M. Stevens and production designer James H. Spencer
- The original Workprint cut of the film transferred from Director Joe Dante’s personal copy, on home video for the very first time - includes deleted and alternate scenes!
- A Tale of Two ‘Burbs – Video featurette comparing the differences between the Workprint and Theatrical cuts of the film, with optional audio commentary from Dante
- Alternate ending, presented in HD for the very first time
- Original Theatrical Trailer in HD
- Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys
- Collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film by Kenneth J. Souza, author of Scared Silly: The Films of Joe Dante, and an article looking at the collaborations of Joe Dante and composer Jerry Goldsmith, illustrated with original archive stills and posters.


There's also an announcement video:

Had this pre-ordered for months... I was sold on the new Graham Humphreys artwork alone.



Cannot wait for this release.

Can someone explain to me why does all the cool releases packed with bonus features, etc, never get released here in the U.S? Will this ever change or should we all just buy region free players? I want this Burbs release.

Welcome to the UK during the first 10 years of DVD.

Very true .... I had to fork out for a region free player foor all the R1 dvds which had far better features than the R2 discs . Arrows blu rays are cracking ..!!!

If you wanted decent editions of anything in the UK, you HAD to get a multi-region player. That's why there were dedicated websites aimed at Brits importing region 1 discs like Play USA and DVD World USA.

It's nice to be on the other side of it for a change, but Shout/Scream Factory are knocking them out of the park as well. Who would've guessed that Sam Raimi's CRIMEWAVE would get a stellar blu-ray before DARKMAN?
