A Hard Day's Night to be re-released on DVD & Blu-Ray AND back in movie theaters

The Beatles' 1964 classic movie A Hard Day's Night will be re-released on DVD and Blu-Ray on June 24. This is being done in celebration of the movie's 50th anniversary. Not only will be movie be re-released but it's also seeing a limited run in selected movie theaters. The re-release will be coming from the Criterion Collection, with the film newly remastered. As expected, the DVD and Blu-Ray will feature a load of special features. The movie has been released on both formats before, the last times being in 2002 and 2009 respectively. This new release will have both new and old features on the Fab Four's first motion picture.

I'm excited to hear about this. A Hard Day's Night is not only my favorite Beatles movie but it's also one of my favorite movies of all time. Seriously- it's my third favorite movie of all time (with This Is Spinal Tap and The Godfather following it as my second and first favorites). I do own the 2002 DVD, which already had bunch of special features. The one main criticism in the Amazon reviews for the 2002  version was that the movie's aspect ratio was incorrect- cutting the picture down. I'm sure this movie was shot in widescreen but I guess they did something wrong with the 2002 one.
