Fred Olen Ray's Retromedia is set to release a special edition DVD of Destroy All Planets (a.k.a. Gamera vs. Viras) that has literally been years in the making.

"We've transferred an original 16mm AIP-TV print and color corrected it two times to produce the best version of this film available," commented Fred.

"But the real reason to catch this Special Edition is the commentary track by American star, Carl Craig... his recollections of the film making process is fascinating. Hosted by Brett Homenick and Damon Foster, recorded in Chicago by our own Randy Carter," added Fred.

No release date has been set, but once it is announced, you'll read it here.

  2. Yes, Shout! owns the right to the Japanese version. This version is strictly the U.S. version, but it's been in the works for several years. Can't wait to get my copy!

  3. If this taken from a TV print, doesn't that mean it's in Full Screen then?
