According to bluray.com, Joe Johnston's (Captain America: The First Avenger) The Rocketeer: 20th Anniversary Edition will finally be arriving on blu-ray before the year ends. The street date that had popped up on amazon.com was December 13th, which has been confirmed by the house of mouse. According to Disney's official announcement the Blu-ray will present The Rocketeer in a 2.35:1 aspect ratio with 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. The special features are still unknown at this time. The starting price of the blu-ray is $26.50, which is not bad. I gotta say that I'm actually excited for this blu-ray.

The film stars Billy Campbell as a stunt pilot and a mechanic in 1930's California who comes across stolen jet-pack designed by Howard Hughes. Based on the retro comic book by Dave Stevens, the superhero flick also stars Jennifer Connelly, Timothy Dalton and Alan Arkin.

I still have the old super nintendo game that came out. Man I hated trying to fly the planes around the stupid track in the game, but this movie still looks cool.

Saw this in the theater when I was 6 years old.

Joe Johnston's the man.
plasticman - 9/16/2011, 10:30 AM
True, BlueMex, this is indeed...awesomeness!!!!

One of my favorite action movies of that time period. I can't wait to share this adventure with my kids and drink out of my plastic Rocketeer cup and lid from Pizza Hut!!
marvel72 - 9/16/2011, 10:38 AM

DarthTesla - 9/16/2011, 10:42 AM
@Plasticman: I wanted one of those cups so bad when I was a kid!

You're a lucky guy

@Romack
The mechanical horse scene is burned in my brain forever! And I ain't complaining.. lol!

@CaptainDusty
I was 7 yrs old when I saw it and then saw the live action play at Disneyland.

@plasticman
I had a couple of those cups,but unfortunately they got lost when I moved from L.A. to San Diego and I never saw them again.

Ghostfire - 9/16/2011, 11:29 AM
@CD
Flippin awesome indeed.. do you remember the live Dick Tracy show at disney?
DarthTesla - 9/16/2011, 11:37 AM
Hahaha yes! And, funny you should say that, Dick Tracy was, I believe, the 1st movie I saw in a theater.
Shredder - 9/16/2011, 11:39 AM
@ Ghostfire Never saw Career Opportunities until years later, but she was indeed incredibly hot in that. Just one of those movies you watch for the eye candy. Not so much the story. :D
Locdogg81 - 9/16/2011, 12:23 PM
Hell yes. I love this movie. I have the deco teaser poster on my wall
JackBauer - 9/16/2011, 12:25 PM

batmanrises - 9/16/2011, 1:25 PM
Nice. I loved this film as a kid!
BillyBatson1000 - 9/16/2011, 1:30 PM
<------- LOVE this film. LOVE this character. LOVE the late Dave Stephen's artwork, humor. Love his Betty Page art too. But will this Bluray be Region-locked. I'm in the UK and really NEED to see this in Bluray standard.
DarthTesla - 9/16/2011, 2:50 PM
It's funny how the younger members here perceive this movie. It must look ridiculous to a 12-year old lol.

It'll always be a classic to me.
otakux3r0 - 9/16/2011, 4:23 PM
Awesome movie. still waiting for the team up with the Shadow.
matt28 - 9/16/2011, 6:31 PM
i have a nostalgic love for this
abw2 - 9/16/2011, 8:15 PM

@otakux3r0: I'm really, only responding, directly to you, because you, kind of, put the idea, into my head.




BUT




Wasn't someone, supposed to be, working on a, Shadow remake? I mean, what the hell, ever happened, to that here, ya know?!! P :)
DarthTesla - 9/16/2011, 8:41 PM
A remake of The Shadow needs to happen.

Same goes for The Phantom. Hell, I'd even like Billy Zane to come back.
souhunter - 9/16/2011, 11:07 PM

I don't know why there's so many people that are against this movie. I think it's one of the most awesome takes on superhero there's been. Now if we can just get a sequel.
