You must have ordered from Amazon US. If it is not a multi-region DVD player you plan to play them on then it will not play them. Unless ofcourse it's specifically a Region 1 player you have, which one would probably only find in America or Canada where they have Region 1 DVD's.
I don't see why they wouldn't do it for every region. I think we can safely assume the box itself will be the same.
That's a pretty good marketing trick. "Oh, there's a spot missing in your box. You better fill it with the newest movie". I'm all for it, though. Clever.
And for the very first time, we have details on the bonus features!
Unfortunately, the QOS bonus features look disappointing again.
And we'll get the first edition of Casino Royale, not the most recent one. No proper Quantum Of Solace either.
Thats all they can be bothered to do for the 50th? Two cobbled together docs featuring stuff that probably figures in the extras from all the other discs and a few SF adverts?
Pathetic. If they hadnt made such a pigs ear of the blu ray releases in the first place I'd have them all by now and wouldnt need to bother with this. Look how poor the CR disc is FFS when we've got the brilliant 2 disc special edition.
And QOS? I can understand DN and FRWL not having much but nowadays filming DVD extras takes up a whole separate film unit. Youre not telling me that theres not loads of QOS special features in the archive. The Guy Haines scene at the end for one.
A very lazy and unimaginative effort but then I'm hardly surprised.
I'm sure ITV will do some docs in celebration that are better than these lame - and lets not beat around the bush here - token efforts. Theyve bascially realised they cant get away with just a 22 disc set so theyve thrown in this 'bonus disc' at the last minute. Youre not telling me that 'Being Bond is going to feature anything but archive stuff from Sean. It will be 70% Daniel fullfilling his contractual obligations, maybe 5 minutes of new stuff from Rog and Tim and some old rehashed footage of Sean, Pierce and George.
It's a big day for Bond. The SKYFALL trailer was revealed this morning, then in Cannes this evening Bérénice Marlohe (Severine) will introduce the first public screening of the trailer at the Salle BUNUEL in the Palais de Festival (5th Floor). Soon afterwards Martine Beswicke will introduce a screening of FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE. Martine played Zora in FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE and Paula in THUNDERBALL. .Then very soon we will be revealing exciting news about the incredible Bond 50 On Blu-ray box set
Is it the information that already has been revealed that they are going to reveal?
Sign me up!
Doesen't sound too tempting, right?
Could this mean a new standalone release of those films in 'Uber Edition'?
For instance, Marc Forster did a directors commentary track that was never released...
And if not, then it is really bad from EoNs side...
I thought QoS was perfect, so they don't have do that for me.
It's annoying as some studios don't region lock their blue-rays.
We have confirmation of the empty slot for the SKYFALL Blu-ray.
There's never a right time to buy the Bond films, so one just has to decide the right time to take the plunge.
I guess they did it because it's the 50th anniversary box set and it should include every film of that period. It's a great idea, I'm so glad they're doing it.
I think the 50th is the right time, so in another 50, you only clog up shelf space (or hover space or whatever it is by then) with two sets :)
