Default 'The Graduate' -- pre-release buzz

MGM/Fox has at last announced the classic for Blu:

No specs yet, but we'll hope for extras.

MSRP is $24.99, and street date June 2.

amazon is showing this as a 2 pc, iirc.

gotta say the new MSRP is fantastic. Warner pushed it w/ their budget catalog line, and it seems Fox is doing the same now.

According to blu-ray.com this (and a majority of the other MGM releases in June) are coming with a DVD copy of the film as well (like Princess Bride)

That's gonna be an awesome deal. One of the best and one of the funniest movies ever made... with the DVD as bonus... all for the lowest catalog price they've ever charged? I'm amazed. Let's hope the presentation & extras are up to snuff. This is a day one rush out and buy type of movie.

Wow for the price there probably won't be too many extras, but good movie. It is nice to see a young Richard dryfass in a small part.

^ Stop holding Blu-ray to lower standards than DVD. If it doesn't include ALL the DVD's special features, none of us should buy it. Because even at that new, lower catalog price point for MGM and/or Fox titles, it's still MORE than the cost of the DVD.

Well considering this is an HD forum, it is the general assumption that people are here to view HD content. Saving money and watching SD content isn't the point of this forum, now is it?

If you want to talk about S DVDs, perhaps you should go to a non-high def forum like DVDTalk, instead of crapping in threads about how a certain title will not benefit from HD. Especially without having seen the transfer.

This is another title I want to see before purchase. I don't have the DVD but always wanted to collect this title. If it has stellar quality i'll pick it up on disc.
