For those that had it on pre-order like me, can hardly wait for the package to arrive. For those that didn't be quick or be backordered [:D]

Retail release of Black Hawk Down DVD isn't until June 11th. [url]http://www.dvdtalk.com/bargain.html[/url] A Special Edition of Black Hawk Down is rumored to come out this FALL.

Yeah, all video (and music) releases are traditionally are on Tuesdays, so it sort of doesn't make sense for today to be the release date. Brian

Is it possible to find out if the Special Edition is true? Because if it is I think I will cancel the preorder and wait...

This is not the special edition, Check out www.play.com, they have it on 24 hour notice. Preordered mine from DVDsoon in Canada, received email this morning that three dvd's [i]including[/i] blackhawk down had shipped.

Wait for the special edition. 2 DVD's full of good stuff. Av. EDIT: The studio has promised a Special Edition is in the works. At this time, the release date is "Fall" Here is a review for the "barebones" DVD. They make references to the Special Edition a couple of times.

There's been noise in the AV/Home theater circles that the movie theaters are planning on doing just that from now on. The movie will be released first in a movie only version, with a special edition with extra features coming after. It will suck if you buy lots of movies like I do. Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

Have some self control and wait for the Special Edition, the movie is that good where waiting only makes it better..... Side note, watched "I left my Career Behind Enemy Lines" last night...Jeeze that was a worthless movie.. As far as war movies go Black Hawk Down is #1 and Red Dawn is #2....Saving Ryans Privates is a distant #Turd... Hehe

Yeah, canceled the Blackhawk pre-order...also canceled the LOTR pre-order in August... Found out the Director's cut comes out in November and it'll have 3+ hours more movie and a few other bells/whistles.

I wasn't sure whether to start a new topic because it's not really coming out today, it's Tuesday (June 11th). Target has it for $17. Anywho, I'll get this one and the Special Edition. I don't mind if there are two releases, just as long as they are upfront (as in this case) in notifying us that there will be a Special Edition (which, it seems like most studios are doing). Apparently the SE is due sometime around Christmas. As for LOTR, the first release is the theatrical release and the second one is the extended directors cut. [b]AND[/b] the supplemental material is different for each set.

I'm in the video rental business. The day that videos are made available for rental is called the "street date" in the industry. Sam's Club, among others, is known for making releases available before the street date, and the Video & Software Dealers Association is taking a look at coming down hard on street date violators. Not sure what they can really do about it, but I think lawsuits are an option.

Found that out a little while ago. Thought it was released today, but Blockbuster is not releasing it until Tuesday.

The general rule of thumb is that new videos/DVD's and CD's/tapes are released on Tuesdays, just as new movies come out on Wednesdays or Fridays. Occasionally, a video will be released on another day, but it generally has to be something big or by a big name to skip out on this convention. CD's on the other hand, are always on Tuesays. Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

Best Buy shipped mine on saturday, as for waitng for the special edition, as I posted once that best buy offered a 10.00 coupon good for any purchase when you ordered BHD , so I can always sell the early release for more than i paid for it on ebay, and have something to watch till november.
