I posted that it was coming in the 'Movies that Deserve Better on DVD' thread. And some specs have just come out about the SE that's due June 29th. It sounds pretty good. Hopefully a few more of Mel Brook's movies will get decent SE's in future. Like "Robin Hood: Men in Tights", "History of the World pt. 1", and "Spaceballs". Oh, and streeting the same day is "Dracula: Dead and Loving It". Plenty of extras on Blazing Saddles. No news on extras yet for Dracula.:)

Warner have kindly sent over details on Blazing Saddles: 30th Anniversary which stars the likes of David Huddleston, Alex Karras, Cleavon Little, Gene Wilder and Mel Brooks. This special edition release will be available to own from the 29th June this year, and should set you back somewhere in the region of $19.97. The film will be presented in 2.40:1 along with a new English Dolby Digital 5.1 track. A Spanish Mono track will also be included. Extras will include a scene specific commentary Mel Brooks, a cast and crew reunion documentary, a Intimate Portrait: Madelaine Kahn Remembers feature, Black Bart, the 1975 TV Pilot inspired by the movie and some additional scenes. The artwork is attached below:

Warner have also announced the region one release of the Mel Brooks directed Dracula: Dead and Loving It which stars Amy Yasbeck, Anne Bancroft, Clive Revill, Harvey Korman, Leslie Nielsen and Lysette Anthony. The disc will be available to own from the 29th June and should retail at around $19.97. I'm afraid we have no word on extra material, but we can tell you that the film will be presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen along with an English Dolby Stereo Surround track. The artwork is below:

Another Life of Brian? Criterion already did a release that was outstanding, what else can they possibly add?

As for Blazing Saddles...I'll be adding this one to the collection. Anyone else up for some refried beans? :)

I think he means, it's being re-released at the theaters. I read about that earlier today, over on another board I'm on. :)

Ah, thanks for the clarification. I was thrown a bit as it was made reference to in a DVD thread. I'll be looking forward to TLoB in the theater.
