Apparently, *Taxi Driver* now has a Blu-ray release date, February 9th. It is likely also a digibook release. Wal-Mart has it prelisted for order, with a ridiculous price of $38.96, with their pre-order being 10% less, $35.06. Amazon lists it without date as $28.95 MSRP, and selling it currently for a preorder price of $18.49. Uncertain why the price difference between the two, but there is a chance that WalMart may get it first as an exclusive. Will follow up and let you know.

Here is a copy and paste of the article..

I for one am excited

There is also MGM/FOX titles being sold to Shout Factory as well from what I heard

this is from www.dvddrive-in.com

 

SHOUT! FACTORY SECURES HOME ENTERTAINMENT RIGHTS TO

EXTENSIVE ROGER CORMAN LIBRARY

Iconic Film Properties Include Piranha, Death Race 2000, Rock ?N? Roll High School, Galaxy Of Terror, Starcrash, Humanoids From The Deep, Grand Theft Auto, Battle Beyond The Stars and more

 

Shout! Factory and New Horizons Picture Corporation have entered into an extensive multiyear alliance to release a vast library of classic and new films from legendary producer-director Roger Corman, recipient of a 2009 Honorary Academy Award?, to the home entertainment marketplace. Under the terms of the agreement, Shout! Factory has secured the exclusive North American home entertainment rights to over 50 highly sought-after Roger Corman film properties. This announcement was made today by Shout! Factory founding partners Richard Foos, Bob Emmer and Garson Foos, and filmmaker Roger Corman.

 

?Roger holds an incredibly rich legacy in Hollywood. His cinematic works, spanning decades, continue to influence filmmakers worldwide. Many of his iconic films have been unavailable or long out-of-print in the home entertainment marketplace. There?s a lot of consumer interest in these films,? state Shout! Factory?s founding partners. ?We?re thrilled and honored with this opportunity to work with Roger and New Horizons to bring his cinematic treasures back to their original luster and share them with movie fans.?

 

?We?re delighted to collaborate with Shout! Factory to make New Horizons? historic library of films available for home entertainment,? said Corman. ?We look forward to working closely with the entire Shout team for great DVD and Blu-ray releases ahead.?

 

Shout! Factory and New Horizons Pictures are working closely to remaster a number of great Corman titles that have been long out of print, some never-before-available on DVD and Blu-ray?. Moreover, Shout! Factory is currently producing a wide range of bonus content for special editions and double features for the launch of Shout! Factory?s Roger Corman?s Cult Classics home entertainment series.

 

The first titles to be made available from Roger Corman?s Cult Classics presented by Shout! Factory are the much anticipated cult thrillers Piranha Special Edition DVD, HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP, UP FROM THE DEPTHS and DEMON OF PARADISE in April 2010; PIRANHA SPECIAL EDITION DVD and Blu-ray, the memorable 1979 classic ROCK ?N? ROLL HIGH SCHOOL SPECIAL EDITION DVD and Blu-ray and the punk rock drama SUBURBIA in May 2010. Other Corman classics slated for 2010 release include DEATH RACE 2000, WARLORDS OF THE 21ST CENTURY, DEATHSPORT, FORBIDDEN WORLD and GALAXY OF TERROR, among others.

 

The saga of independent filmmaker-producer Roger Corman ranks as one of the most amazing motion picture success stories. Having produced more than 350 films and directed 50 others, his influence on American film goes far beyond his own energetic, creative low-budget movies. He is arguably one of Hollywood?s most gifted and masterful filmmakers.

 

Noted for his keen ability to spot young talent, Corman?s most lasting legacy will undoubtedly be the legion of producers, directors, writers and actors he has fostered, among them: Jack Nicholson, Francis Ford Coppola, Robert De Niro, Martin Scorsese, James Cameron, Ron Howard, Peter Fonda, Jonathan Demme, Gale Anne Hurd, Diane Ladd, Tommy Lee Jones, Sandra Bullock, Bruce Dern, Talia Shire, Charles Bronson, Joe Dante, Peter Bogdanovich and Sally Kirkland.

 

About New Horizons Picture Corporation

Roger Corman?s New Horizons is America?s leading truly independent production and distribution company, specializing in cutting-edge, youth-oriented, modestly budgeted genre films for international, cable TV and domestic video markets. Roger Corman founded New Horizons in 1983 after the sale of its highly successful predecessor company, New World Pictures, which enabled Corman to continue producing films without managing a theatrical distribution company. New Horizons has a library of over 400 titles, including early films of Jack Nicholson, Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, William Shatner, Tommy Lee Jones, Sylvester Stallone, Ron Howard, Sandra Bullock, James Cameron, Jonathan Demme, Peter Bogdanovich, Joe Dante and many others, and continues to produce a steady line of exciting genre movies, with the defining characteristics of youth, energy and the introduction of new talent.

Paramount has outrageously overpriced these releases. I see Amazon still has the single BR for $27.99 which is still too much. Won't spend more than $19.95 for BR unless its something very special or possibly Criterion.
