It appears like the list we've seen before, but I'm not sure if it's been updated since the last posting.
I still live in the hope that we Will see more special features. We will perhaps get something new at comic-con?
That's nothing new and should be all we get for the features until the next upgrade. I think the 60th anniversary would convince EON to open their vaults a little more, after 16 years!
Maybe they are re-releasing them idividually as well. I certainly hope so because i hate the packaging for the box set... And the lack of extras!
Well, at the time it is two new featurettes about the 50 anniversary and we are going to get the videoblogs from Skyfall. Other then that, nothing. Not even the extended material that we got for CR is on this set.
Shame on you Eon!
I am so dissapointed on EoN if we don't get more special featurettes!
Well prepare to be dissappointed then as the spec of the box set has been released on Amazon and lots of other sites. Theyre not suddenly going to announce a load of extra documentaries, deleted scenes etc.
What you see is what you get - discs that are 6 years old, just in Bluray.
And in CRs case theyve actually gone backwards by giving you less. The CR special edition should be the template - they shouldve given every film that treatment for the 50th then they might have convinced me to buy it. As it is I'll just get OHMSS,TLD and GE as theyre the ones I'm really missing on Bluray. Then I'll probably pick up the rest bit by bit in a year or so when they come down in price.
I think I'll save my money for the Indy box set as say what you like about Lucas but he usually dangles some nice carrots for the fans to get them to buy.
Along with Die Another Day but that happened with the UE release and now we'll never get those missing extras back.
."with regards to the other posts this was on thedigitalbits website and they are usually accurate (please note fox distribute the discs in the us and they are direct ports.)
"And in other news, there's been a lot of talk around the Internet about the list of extras revealed yesterday by Fox and MGM for the upcoming Bond 50 box set. Specifically, it appeared (based on the press release) that many things have been left off from the previous DVD and Blu-ray Ultimate Editions of the Bond films. Upon reading the list however, I wasn't convinced that it was 100% comprehensive and included absolutely everything on the discs. So I asked the studio to clarify. Sure enough, I've just heard back from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. As expected, the list posted yesterday - and included in the official press release - was simply a "marketing highlights" summary. The complete list of extras on the Bond 50 discs is significantly longer. We've asked for additional details and specifics and we'll post them here as the studio makes them available."
so it looks like they will do a comprehensive list a bit later on
No, but if it is true and there Will be a longer list, then i'm really excited for this set!
Exactly. They're hardly going to leave off stuff like deleted scenes, screen tests and loads of documentaries from the original list of extras and then suddenly reveal them now. At best you might get the odd bonus thing like a different trailer or, more likely, the exact same discs that we already have.
So far the only things of interest is the 142m 15s runtime on OHMSS as listed. When has it ever been THAT long? Blu Ray menu transitions for said film have also been submitted. Exciting.
TND has also now been passed as 12 on blu ray as opposed to 15 (ultimate edition dvd)...will this still be the uncut version and the BBFC have decided to downgrade the rating as it really isnt all that bad?
GE remains as 15 with Strong Violence warning listed
In addition all Bond Movies ready for Blu Ray release have been submitted throughout July to BBFC with Video and Online submissions listed. Looks like UK might be getting the streaming experience too.
That's it for now...will keep looking. :-)
Running times on all the films should be slightly longer due to blu-ray being the same as cinema presentations at 24fps where as video/dvd were encoded at a slightly faster rate - too much to hope there is even more been put back into OHMSS!
Yeah but my UE DVD states a running time of 136 mins. The faster rate couldnt account for 6 mins surely?
Although I would say the chances of us getting a extra 5 mins of new footage from nowhere are as close to zero as winning the Euromillions. They wouldve at least mentioned it as an incentive for people to buy rather than just slip it under the radar at the last minute.
For example, Casino Royale, a 144 minute film is only 138 minutes on the region 2 DVD because of this.
That 4% accounts for 6 minutes, which is quite significant really. You would never guess it would be that much.
EDIT: OK, much of this has already been said but hey, this is my take on things. At least I got an opportunity to share my useless knowledge. ;)
Yes, but if you look at the blu-ray of CR run time is 144mins because of this, so OHMSS would be about 6 mins longer, frame rate makes quite a difference on a film 2-and-a-half hours long. Just can't wait to see it on blu-ray.
However, here is the most bizarre change so far
BBFC rated Diamonds Are Forever as '12' for Blu Ray release earlier this month (main film not extras)...it has been PG for years and years...what made the BBFC change their mind?
My only possible suggestion is Ms O'Toole's high def breasts in the pool! :-)
Also for all those wanting to collect Bond on Blu Ray seperately due to owning previous titles and not wanting to pay for a full box here is some news (USA at least) that might mean you are in luck.
This links seems to suggest EON have something up their sleeve.
