    Does anyone know of a new release coming out, it really deserves better than the R2 release I have.

    I thought I heard a while back that a new "super" release of the Shawshank Redemption is going to happen next year as the film will be 10 years old (its hard to believe that it is nearly 10 years old already!) - could be wrong though. :confused:

    I remember thinking how fantastic it looked and sounded, my first DVD.

    Now it is very disappointing

    Yes, there will be a new release, but not 'till next year.
    This is what the director Frank Darabont had to say.....

    "My suggestion to Warners that we do a Ten Year Anniversary theatrical re-release of Shawshank Redemption has met with enthusiasm. Plans are afoot for a Jan or Feb 2004 re-release in either L.A. or N.Y (maybe both, which is what I'm hoping), followed by a roll-out in key cities nationwide if the L.A./N.Y boxoffice results indicate public interest. If not, we'd obviously fold our tents quietly after L.A./N.Y., as there's no point rolling out if people ain't showing up. Hopefully they will, though. I'm very excited about the possibility of folks getting to see this movie on the big screen as was intended (so few did), rather than the dubbed-for-language-and-chopped-up-for-commercials Turner version. Aside from making sure the negative hasn't deteriorated, we'll be doing a re-mastering of our sound to current digital standards (the film was originally mixed in Dolby A, which a tad old-fashioned even then). No, there will be no additional scenes or re-editing, since I was lucky enough to be able to release my director's cut the first time around, thanks to Castle Rock. (Besides, I've always had mixed-to-negative feelings about films being mucked around with years after the fact.) Beyond that, I'll also be doing a Ten Year Anniversary Special Edition DVD for release later in 2004 (before Christmas). The set will include some fabulous documentaries (one of which was superbly done by a company called Noblesgate for Channel 4 in England), as well as a CD of Tom Newman's score. Very exciting stuff."

    Definitely one of my all time favourites :) Have you ever seen "The Hurricane"? Similar sort of genre, but better IMO due to the "true story" element :) My ABSOLUTE favourite :)

    Same as mate, hurricane was good, but didn't really do it for me (only seen it once so far, I will probably watch it again soon) whereas Shawshank was superb, i've now seen it about 15 times and would watch it again tomorrow happily.
