Watching that trailer brought the 18-year-old version of me back to life for a moment! Wow! I've been waiting for new TP material for 21 years! I hope this can press be some interest for a new Twin Peaks on Netflix or the like. I've got this pre-ordered. The reason I've worked in the media for most of my life is through the inspiration Twin Peaks gave me at the age of 15.

I even got to edit a documentary David Lynch appeared in last year (not Side By Side although I highly recommend that film to anyone with an interest in the business!)

Very very happy!!

Thank you for putting up a screen cap where it is visibly seen, that there is no slit. Actually I watched the trailer only two times, the second time showing it to my family trying to read the reaction. Somewhere in google I found a dark screen shot, that's why I thought the throat was cut.

When I saw how the transportation scene with Jeffries was executed I thought the effects were original and outdated, anyway not visual effects, but ideas are whose things, which rule!

This is such an exciting time for Twin Peaks fans!
I was really surprised to find out this is really happening. I don't have a blu-ray player and I have always said that the only reason for me to ever buy one is if some kind of a Twin Peaks set not available in other formats will be released. :D

I don't really care about the HD update, and it wouldn't even matter as my only TV is still an old CTR television.
But man... The extras on this set........ Tons of hyper exciting material! And FINALLY the deleted scenes of FWWM! I'm already satisfied that I've been able to see the two minutes worth of material from that trailer, so I'm really stoked about the possibility to see nearly 90 minutes of new stuff.



By the way, there has been discussions if we should read the unseen stuff from the screenplay as canon. Some were for it and some were against. What are your opinions now? They still aren't part of the movie but now they are going to exist in an official Twin Peaks release. I personally think that all the new material should be seen as part of the canon, as David Lynch has been quoted in the press release saying “During the last days in the life of Laura Palmer many things happened, which have never been seen before. They're here now alongside the new transfer of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and Twin Peaks, the television series.” So Lynch thinks of these materials as things that have happened in the world of Twin Peaks.




Some thoughts about the trailer:

That was as good of a fan service that fan service could be! They managed to show the known parts (fight with Cable, Ed and Norma, the appearance of Truman and co...) but they also showed some of the really juicy parts that shows that we will indeed see new stuff from the Red Room and what happened to Phillip Jeffries! And I'm sure the juiciest parts weren't in the trailer...

There are some concerns too though.. Will they show a more talky version of the Convenience Room scene? Will they show Bob talking? "Light of new discoveries." Will that work? I kinda like see Bob saying "I have the fury of my own momentum" though :)
The Jeffries special effect was also a bit on the cheesy side (it's not the best green screen effect ever made, and you can see Phillips "ghost arm" over the railing where it should not be - perhaps they fix the effect to the final release), although in the trailer the slow motion shot of Philip screaming and that music starting to play gives the scene a really sad feeling. The agony and pain of a body moving through space and time is done really well by Bowie. But then again, that might just be because of that trailer. I'm a tad worried the scene could end up being too funny with that effect and if the guy at the hotel really says "de shit it come out of my ass" :D
Well, no matter how it ends up being, I'm sure I will enjoy whatever they decide to show me.

I never realized that the part in the Jeffries scene in the movie where he screams in close-up is from the part after he has teleported back to Buenos Aires. If you look closely, you can even see a small part of the railing behind Jeffries! I always thought that scream happened in the office but he actually screamed in Buenos Aires.

And the last part where Cooper blows a kiss must be from that part of him talking to Diane. I'm really excited to see that too. We haven't ever been able to be so "close" to Diane before :)

Paramount Brazil just set the date for the release in Brazil: August 1st.
The price is almost the double tho. Bluray sets are really expensive here.
The cheaper way would be to import from the UK. Anyone knows if it's gonna be region B locked? My player is not region free :(

Twin Peaks on Blu-Ray DVD Official Discussion Thread

Anne wears her Miss Twin Peaks dress AND Caroline's dress in the Black Lodge. Caroline's dress points to Caroline being Coop's love. Therefore, two of Coop's loves combined in the Black Lodge. Therefore, NOT a continuity error. Caroline's dress on Anne outside the Black Lodge is a beautiful ambiguity. A dream-like schism.

I'm surprised Anne wearing Caroline's dress is so confusing.

It is apparently a continuity error because we saw Annie wearing the Miss Twin Peaks black dress OUTSIDE the Lodge in episode 29... Waiting to see the whole thing (we're discussing 4 or 5 seconds of footage here) the only explanation is that she somehow brought that Caroline-Annie combination outside, changing clothes like she does in the Lodge... The only other moment in the series which reminds me of this is Briggs dressed as a pilot, like if those clothes were given to him by the White Lodge.

BTW, I don't remember...is she bleeding in episode 29?

My bad, I forgot that we do see her black dress on outside the lodge. Aces!

Exactly- if we hadn't seen that final shot of Annie OUTSIDE the Lodge in episode 29, there would be no continuity error. And yes, her face is bloodied outside the Lodge in that final shot (as well as inside the Lodge as she lies next to Cooper in Caroline's dress).

Wonder if we get to see the one armed man pinching out the circle of candles while saying "fire walk with me" backwards.

Al Strobel mentioned filming this scene in an interview on the artisan set.

Will this new set contain the extras from the Paramount Season 2 DVD box? I sold that one back because I thought the artwork looked horrible and it paled in comparison to the Artisan Season 1 box...but I suppose it would be nice to have the extras again (even though they weren't that great).

Will it contain anything from the Artisan box?

When I read this before I thought you were talking about the other railing for some reason. Now I see that you were talking about that light haze on the railing that's closer to the viewer. Interesting. I wasn't even thinking about that, but rather the effect of the blurred Bowie beaming into the scene before he's completely materialized.

I am wondering if there will be another trailer?
You know, in a few weeks?
July 29th is still so very far away!

Yeah, I thought you were confused with what I was trying to say, Jasper. :) Anyway, I still think the effect is from that time period.
