Dawn of the Dead
Those of us who Actually Work For a Living hate office meetings, right? Well, I'm fortunate enough to work in a place where meetings are conducted within ten feet of an HDTV. Today, it was tuned into the INHD channel, which seems to show nothing but movie trailers. While my boss prattled on about whatever she was prattling on about, I was watching zombies.
Apparently, there's a remake of Dawn of the Dead on the way. Will it be good? Who cares? This means that the original version will almost certainly get a proper DVD release.
Currently, hard-to-find DVDs of the film run $75 or more on Ebay. According to Amazon, a "Divimax Edition" is on the way but it neglects to mention any special features. A site called the Laser's Edge claims the disc will contain a commentary by the director along with oodles of trailers and TV spots.
What's going on here? Does it matter? Humanity will soon boast not one but two zombies-in-a-shopping-mall films.
