We passed along word
yesterday that StarVista Entertainment (formerly Time Life Entertainment) has planned on September 24th
DVD releases of The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast
, according to Amazon.com pre-order listings which showed both a 180-minute single disc version, and a 1080-minute multi-DVD Collector's Edition
. Since that report was made, both listings have been temporarily removed from Amazon. We're told they were prematurely added to the big e-tailer, and that the studio wasn't quite ready to accept pre-orders at this time. These entries will be re-listed at Amazon once the titles are formally announced.
But big fans of Dino won't want those versions anyway. Our contacts at StarVista/Time-Life have let us know some exciting news to share with our readers: the studio WILL also be releasing what they told us is a "Complete Collection
" of the Roasts
. It will include over 10 hours of Bonus Material, which hasn't been finalized yet so they haven't given us the details on those extras yet. Neither is package art, cost or a ship date finalized at this time, but they do plan to sell this as an online exclusive at their studio web store, and expect to begin taking pre-orders in July. We'll bring you the formal announcement just as soon as we can, so stay tuned!
