We have just received detailed information from Sony Music about the release of the eagerly awaited Pink Floyd: The Wall. The disc is currently scheduled for a release on November 9 with a number of impressive supplements.
The DVD is coming from a new Hi Definition Telecine film transfer of the complete motion picture from
the original wide screen interpositive and also contains a remastered 5.1 channel Dolby Digital soundtrack direct from the original master tapes, as well as previously unreleased film footage and a running commentary by Roger Waters and Gerald Scarfe.
The disc will also contain “The Other Side Of The Wall”, a 25 minute documentary about the making of the film, “Retrospective”, an exclusive new 45 minute documentary of interviews with
Roger Waters, Gerald Scarfe, Alan Parker, Peter Biziou, Alan Marshall and James Guthrie. The package will also include the original film trailer and production stills as well as a Deluxe DVD packaging that will include four film stills printed on double sided postcards.
It seems the price will be catching some retailers who put the title up for pre-order up very early by surprise, because Sony now marks the suggested retail price at $31.98. Considering that many retailers currently still offer the title for $14.99, I would urge everyone to go out and pre-order the disc before these prices are adjusted!
