Grab your little friend, bury your head in a huge cup of coke…a cola and head out to your local theater later this month. On August 31, for one night only, the influential gangster remake Scarface, written by Oliver Stone and directed by Brian De Palma, is headed back to the big screen. The screening will help celebrate the September 6 Blu-ray release of the film and in addition to the movie itself, which features Al Pacino, Michelle Pfeiffer, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Robert Loggia, audiences will get their first look at a brand new documentary from the Blu-ray which features famous filmmakers talking about how much Scarface has influenced them.

Sure, you might think you love Scarface. But do you really love Scarface? Like, say, to the tune of $999.99?

That impressive figure is what it’ll cost you to get the limited-edition Blu-ray of the gangster classic, dropping Sept. 6, and it’s quite a jump from the $19.98 “Widescreen Two-Disc Anniversary Edition” DVD that’s currently on the market. So what does that extra $980.01 get you? Find out after the jump.

During an interview with Ecranlarge, Universal France marketing director Eric Legay revealed that Steven Spielberg‘s Jurassic Park will finally be released on Blu-ray in 2011, along with the other two movies in the franchise (if you care..,). I assume we’ll get single discs and a box set, but no word on new extra features. Legay also revealed that Brian DePalma‘s classic ganster filmScarface will be released on the format this year. Also on the list is a bunch of westerns, including Winchester 73, Shenandoah, High Plains Drifter and another unnamed Clint Eastwood film, as well as some more movies from director Alfred Hitchcock.

The United States of Movies Map

Subtonix decided to create a map of the United States by pinpointing the movies which best represent each of the 50 states. For example, New Jersey is Clerks and Kansas is The Wizard of Oz. There will likely be some debate over some of these choices (is Fast Times at Ridgemont High the ultimate representation of California?) but it is an interesting concept none the less. It’s also interesting to note that more Coen Brothers films appear on the map than any other filmmaker. Hit the jump to see the whole map, and click to enlarge.
