Synapse Film’s President Don May Jr. commented about the release and revealed some fantastic news about some of the materials they will be working with, “We now have some amazing materials, including the original camera negative and 35mm Interpositive materials to go through, to make sure this release is the best it can be. We just got a palette of amazing stuff we have to sort through for extras, including never before seen behind-the-scenes photos, documents, vintage interview tapes and even an alternate, never used original movie poster design that I found in the bottom of a random box”.

Some exciting news for sure. As soon as we hear more and get some specs we will let you guys know.

        Popcorn is one of those movies that has a lot of good but also a lot of bad in it. But I do have a soft spot for it .
