This September See Several Fox Filmmaker Signature Series Films On Blu-Ray

On September 18th, Fox will be releasing several films under their Filmmaker Signature Series banner.  This films being released on this day include The Brothers McMullen, She’s The One, The French Connection, Wall Street, Hoffa, and The War of the Roses.  What makes the Filmmaker Signature Series notable is that all of these Blu-rays are given personal attention by the original filmmakers, meaning that the transfers onto Blu-ray were personally supervised and approved by them, implying that these are the preferred and best current way to view these films in a home media format.  I believe Best Buy previously had an exclusive deal to sell these titles, but in September they will be available all over.  Continue on to learn more details regarding the release of these upcoming films.

    Wow, a full Best Buy exclusive slate finally outside of Best Buy for purchase. I already have Wall Street. Hoffa and French Connection look tempting.
