Optimistically: That may be the Theater Release version. Whenever the DVD comes out, it must have more.

It is the info for the DVD, dummy!!

In the components list the 20:49 seems to be extras. This makes the main movie even shorter at 95 minutes. THE FUCK?

Components List
This work is made up of a number of separate components. Note that since February 2001 the BBFC has measured each component separately, but older works may not have the exact details, only a list of titles

01:35:18:15
THE ROXY MOVIE
00:20:49:01

I'm worried that after all this waiting it's going to be underwhelmimg and a "not what it coulda/shoulda been" type of thing.

And what's the betting that half of the 20 minute extras will be the Cheepnis Monster Movie?

Finally!!! :twisted:

I must admit that considering the extremely long wait, the duration is too short. But it's obviously better than nothing! And since Eagle Rock is releasing it (like they have with several other FZ DVDs), it'll probably be available through regular retail outlets as well...

I sent a message to the Eagle Rock News Twitter account asking when the pre-orders will start. No answer yet.

This was shot on film so it would be nice if there was a blu-ray transfer. Might help the audio as well.

This is confusing... the previous info we got was that Eagle Rock was putting out ROXY. The RS article says something different.

The estate recently entered into a new partnership with Universal Music Enterprises, allowing Ahmet to find new ways to spread the Gospel of Frank. The joint venture's first release will be the 40-years-in-the-making Roxy Movie, finally due out this October.

In April 2014, Eagle Rock Entertainment was acquired by the Universal Music Group.

It's what I do whenever I read a Plook post! :)

Maybe they had a good reason why it's not 4 hours.
