Recent price drop of Director's Cut DVD - a sign?

I purchased the Director's Cut about 2 years ago and the cheapest price I could find it for at time was around $14-15. The DVD had been available for about 5 years with minimal price drop. However, now I can find it for $6-7. In my experience, a price drop usually occurs when a new SE is in the works.

What I'm suggesting could be a stretch, but it's just something to think about.

Too good to be true. :cry:

The works on SE are in so immature phase it can't remotely have impact on the price of previous release on the market. 'Sides, 5 years is enough to cut the price down. If the price dropped down everywhere, it's probably a standard Warner policy.

If the rumors are true and the SE is nothing more than a remastered Director's Cut plus that docu, then it could be true. The release date is the first quarter of 2005, if I remember correctly.
If the remastered 'DC' looks every bit as good as the remastered 'Alien' then we're going to be in for a unbelievable treat!
Of course, a new DC (plus Theatrical and 1992 DC) would've been nirvana/utopia/heaven.

BR796164,

I see your point, and I did figure that was a possibility.


BTW, Blade Runner DC DVD is $3.88 at Walmart this Friday :shock:

That DVD has been out a long time, one of the very first dvds that was released. I think the price drop has less to do with the SE and more to do with the age of the original.
