Yep and I finally snagged a copy! And I wanted to pair it with Legends of the Fall... and now it's out of stock now, LOL.

Damn. Well, at least I got the Rocketeer.


Now you'll just have to wait five years for the USPO to deliver the Rocketeer to your door.


HAHA, yes indeed. Rocketeer speedi it ain't!

Received mine today--shipping time from CA to FL was three business days which is fantastic considering the current state of affairs in the US. (also received what I'm guessing was one of the last copies of Chinatown)


I immediately noticed the heft of the booklet compared to similar releases. It's 24 pages including front and back. My jewel case version of Return of the Jedi has 32 pages and I've had to stop removing the booklet because it's got a nasty dog ear from barely fitting in the jewel case sleeve.

For the Rocketeer, the paper is MUCH thicker. I'm probably gonna just scan the booklet when I rip the CD so I don't cause any clumsy damage.

Edit: this is not a criticism of the pressing--it's a beautiful release and I'm so thankful to Intrada for all they do!

I must say there's something about the paper stock that Intrada users that causes the printing to damage under the plastic clasps if you're not careful. Black ink is actually removed, leaving small white patches if you're not too careful. Actually, it's not a case of being careful, simply removing and re-inserting the booklet is enough...

Anyone who double dipped to get the new remaster; is it now as good as you wanted it to sound like? Any feedback if you think it improves it?

My wife likes to poke fun at me when I HAVE to order something as soon as its released.

I just have to show her some of these threads to prove that film score aficionados don't mess around. wink

I've never seen the film but ordered the disc because of all the praise on this forum. And I'm so glad I did. It's beautiful. And apparently I ordered it in the nick of time.

There will be one last batch coming. Then we're at the AFM maximum and can't do more without paying high new use fees.

OMG Roger! If I recall correctly that maximum was 10,000 copies, right? (Or 9,999?) That's why LLL's Star Trek: The Motion Picture was limited to 10,000, I think, anyway...

If that's where you are at for The Rocketeer, that is AMAZING news! Major congrats.

The rules are a bit different now. 5000 is the limit.

@ Mr. Roger Feigelson: do we have any idea of the E.T.A.?

Still, 5000 is pretty good going for a flop film that nobody saw!!
Well done Intrada.

To the film's credit, it didn't flop but it did under-perform from what Disney had hoped or expected it to (in 2020, it would have made $110M in the US). It was #10 at the US box-office for the summer movie season with $47M (not a flop) and #26 for all new movie releases in 1991 in the U.S.

To put it into perspective, it made the same amount of money as The Fisher King, Point Break, Thelma & Louise, New Jack City and Bugsy all did individually that same year in '91.


Glad more people may have been exposed to the film because of the exceptional score release Intrada gave us though!

SAE's website allowing you to order something doesn't guarantee they currently have stock to cover it. I learned that twice in the last month.

I have the original Intrada release of the Rocketeer (pre-remastering). The dynamic range never really bothered me that much. I'm curious, for those of you that had that issue and bought the re-release, would you say the remastering is worth the double dip?
