It's interesting to go to herbalpertis.com and download the movie's press kit. It contains a LOT of information, including the full movie credits and list of all the songs included on the soundtrack. Pretty all inclusive!

Color me disappointed that the Blu-ray will "follow later." I wonder how much later? That's the one format I want it in, since a theatrical viewing won't be possible around here.

I would think BluRay and 4K downloads should follow soon after--nobody really wants to wait months to get something that's already out. The BluRay could be a manufacturing delay. It's not like the format is uncommon. I didn't even think DVDs were sold anymore, to be honest.

I think DVD is still the dominant physical format. BluRay has been a bit of a disappointment.... people didn't flock to it like they did with DVDs and why should they? With your typical TV setup and the typical viewer, the difference is not worth chucking your player, until it breaks.

I'm glad it's only a couple of weeks for the BR. I will definitely get it that way, whether or not I decide to watch it over the www.

I also think 4K streaming has taken over from buying movies on disc, especially now that rentals are fading away. (I honestly can't think of any video rental store in my area.) I have seen very few DVD players available anymore--BluRay has gotten so cheap that there's no reason to produce the older players. Current TVs being 4K, some have good enough upsampling that DVD can look closer to 4K, so I can see why consumers might not see the attraction to upgrading old DVDs to BluRay if they notice only a small difference. Or again, why even keep the old DVDs if they can find it on one of the streaming platforms? (Not referring to collectors, but to the average video consumer.)

No not free. But there's been no pricing info yet.

Based on the cost of the LP box set, I'm betting it'll about $249.00. (I'm kidding.... probably closer to $20 to $30 -- that seems to be the going rate for new streaming movies these days.)

I was assuming a free premiere with Q&A with Herb and Producer John Scheinfeld afterwards, but I've asked the question and will post once I have an answer.
