    Having been invited to a screening of additional features from The Godfather Box Set and talking with the marketing director for Paramount Pictures last night, I though I'd pass on some new bits of information.

    With regards to the Godfather extras, we were shown a 30min compilation of short material (including a great Sopranos Easter Egg and a hilarious introduction from Coppolla for the TV edit of the original film) and a 70min retrospective documentary about the three films in the series. Simply put, this box set is the must-have DVD release of the year, and while a question still hangs over the quality of the transfers as no footage from the films was shown, check discs should be with us next week, so I'll pop in again to tell you about them.

    In additional news, there's some good news and bad news for Star Trek fans. the bad is that Star Trek: The Motion Picture - Director's Cut has been delayed until March 2002 to tie in with the VHS release of Star Trek: Enterprise in the UK. The good news is that also tying in with the Enterprise launch will be the release of the first Star Trek: The Next Generation DVD box set, these will offer full seasons of the show. The company is also looking to do something with Voyager, possibly establishing a roll-out system similar to Buffy and Angel where TNG will be followed a couple of months later by Voyager, which will then be followed a couple of months later by the next TNG box, and so on.

    Additionally, the company also has a collection of Michael Caine movies for release in the first half of 2002 with commentaries from the great man himself. The titles in question are Alfie, Zulu and The Italian Job. Woohoo!

    There was also talk about a certain blockbuster with a busty female lead, although we're sworn to secrecy on that one.

    Anton,

    You said: "There was also talk about a certain blockbuster with a busty female lead, although we're sworn to secrecy on that one."

    It's got to be something to do with that stupid tart Pamela Anderson, and a special porno version of the absolutely dire "Barb Wire", or a deluxe boxed set of "Baywatch" on DVD. I can't think of any other "busty female lead" that would fit the bill.

    Am I right?!

    Pooch
