The Amazing Spider-Man: th reboot

this awful covers (http://www.mubis.es/noticias/relanzamiento-de-la-trilogia-spider-man-en-blu-ray): blu-ray reboot

Have they uncovered if these are going to be complete rehashes of the old blus? I would hope that they decided to release them with the old special features from the DVDs.

They look like shitty custom-made covers to me :shrug:

I don't care what the covers are at this point...all I care about is if this will have all the DVD features or not.

I actually don't think the covers are that bad just slightly plain. The main thing I don't like on them is the number on the cover of each release. I'll probably only get this if it's cheap enough and includes movie cash for The Amazing Spider-Man.

The most important thing missing from the Blu-rays is the plethora of commentary tracks. Spider-man had 3 (2 on the regular DVD, 1 on the Superbit) and Spider-man 2 had 3 also (2 on the regular DVD, 1 on Spider-man 2.1). I hope they include the other features too, but the overwhelming majority of those are all available on Disc 2 of the DVD sets, making a custom version fairly easy to make. I want to watch these movies in high-definition with the commentary tracks, if I so choose.

Oh, you don't remember how when the movie came out it was called "Spider Man 1"? Just like we all forgot that the correct title of the first Indy Jones movie was "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark?"

Also, the box cover here looks a LOT like the poster for the new movie.. so, you know, they can trick grandma into getting it for her grandkids, thinking it's the new one.

Less-than-impressive cover art aside, I'd consider grabbing this new set, as long as all the previous extras were ported over, and not just repackagings of the previous Blu-Rays...

lamphorn
03-29-12, 06:18 PM
I'm also interested in knowing if these are new transfers. I held off on the previous blu rays because I read that the picture quality was not very good.

Those look like very early mock-ups. The first image doesn't even completely match the second one.

Do we even know that these are coming to the U.S.?

Awful cover art aside, it is pretty amazing the first two movies haven't received better treatment so far on Blu - perfect video and all extras, etc. This is Sony's premier series... I don't get it.

MTRodaba2468

Well, the blue backgrounds on those look even worse than the black ones.

With that said, I'd waited to grab these, as I was wanting the extras to be ported over along with everything else. Since it appears to be the case (for the most part, anyway, I'm not sure off hand if EVERYTHING has been brought over, but it appears most of them have), then I'll probably grab these, and just use custom art.

Seems pretty weird that they aren't releasing this as a set; even the cover art they're using looks like it would work better in the context of a box set.

Matthew Chmiel
04-02-12, 09:36 PM
Weren't the extras originally announced when Sony was gearing up to put out the Blu-ray essentials re-release of the films?

I'm not believing anything until someone has a copy in their hands with all of the DVD bonus material ported over.

joltman
04-03-12, 07:54 AM
They weren't announced, they were just listed on Sony's site. This appears to be a press release, so while it might not be 100% correct, I think it's safe to say we'll get the extras this time.

flansered
04-03-12, 08:18 AM
This makes sense, due to my finally ordering the British set off Amazon UK last week. I guess I'll just keep that and stick the extra discs in the case.

Just in time for this summer’s highly anticipated release of "The Amazing Spider-Man," in theaters July 3, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is re-releasing "Spider-Man," "Spider-Man 2" and "Spider-Man 3" on Blu-ray with UltraViolet on June 12. Each edition includes new, collectable O-Ring packaging, as well as a code for owners to enter at a movie ticket redemption site (www.sonymoviecash.com/ASM), where they can see a sneak peek of "The Amazing Spider-Man" and print their free movie ticket offer*. The "Spider-Man" Blu-ray includes two never-before-seen bonus features “Spider Sense Over Movie Trivia Game” and “The Spider-Man Cutting Room.” The "Spider-Man 2" Blu-ray includes both previously released theatrical and extended versions of the film, with additional footage and fight sequences not seen in theaters.

UltraViolet is included on each edition, allowing owners of the Blu-ray to add the films to their Digital Right Library, enabling them to download or instantly stream the film.

The critically-acclaimed trilogy based on the Marvel Comics characters, which boast a combined worldwide box office gross of almost $2.5 billion, stars Tobey Maguire ("Seabiscuit," "The Great Gatsby") as Peter Parker (alias Spider-Man), Kirsten Dunst ("Meloncolia") as Mary Jane Watson, and James Franco ("Rise of the Planet of the Apes") as Harry Osborn. All three releases are directed by Sam Rami ("Evil Dead" trilogy). The series also features spectacular villains, with Willem Dafoe ("The Boondock Saints") as Green Goblin/Norman Osborn in "Spider-Man," Alfred Molina ("The Da Vinci Code") as Doc Ock/Dr. Otto Octavius in "Spider-Man 2," and Thomas Haden Church ("Easy A," "Sideways") as Sandman/Flint Marko and Topher Grace ("Predators") as Venom / Eddie Brock in "Spider-Man 3."

I was comparing the special features list with DVD Compare's listing for the first two films, and it looks like it would still be missing a handful of features from the DVDs. If there's an AV upgrade for the first two, it would be worth it, though I doubt the third would have much if any of an upgrade. I actually wouldn't be surprised if the third one is the same as the first disc of the current version.

Man, those covers are hideous. Part of me wants to upgrade these, but I just don't think they hold up at all. Maybe SM2, but the first is severely dated and the third is, well... we all know.

And only $10 movie cash? That won't cover a ticket at any showing in CA.

04-03-12, 07:26 PM
Unless they release this as a set, I'll just keep 3 from the trilogy. The sound might not be as good, but the movie is bad enough where I won't mind.

I'll upgrade the first 2 and just give the bare bones blus that I have to friends or family.

I did really enjoy the first two and this was one of my first blu-ray purchases and I didn't know they'd drop extra features and all the things that I know now.

The double dip on 1 and 2 is something I'll just have to live with to get the extras.

I can't believe, though, they didn't just release 3 the way it was in the first trilogy. Add features back to one and two, but leave off the extra disc from 3. Ugh. Why do the studios make such dumb decisions?

Having these, the covers aren't great, but not too bad.

I had a 3-disc BD case so I took the second disc for SM3 and a bonus disc that I think I got from Circuit City and put it in there as well.

Really sucks Sony didn't just port everything over to make an ultimate set or something, though I am glad all the commentaries are available.

Most of the DVD features are added to parts 1 and 2. They dropped the features disc in part 3 for some reason.

Amazon and Best Buy.com both have $11.99 prices for each. I'd order from Amazon, but they haven't added any promo about a free ticket to the new film. Regarding movie cash titles, they usually don't get those.

For the MIB movies, they added a free ticket promo near the release date. I may just get these in store to get multiple tickets.

I know what you mean -rolleyes- I really wish they would get their act together and start stocking their shelves with new releases (catalog titles) when they need to be stocked. Sometimes my BB will stock new catalog titles two or three weeks later from the original release date. It happened with To Catch A Thief and Chinatown.

Out of the 3 Walmarts in my area, only one had all three Spidey re-releases. You would think the other two Walmarts would have them too. Nope!!

I picked up 1 & 2 today due to the movie cash since I plan to see the new flick. I still couldn't bring myself to pick up part 3 even though my son (who is 8 and has never seen it) wanted me to. My wife told me when I got home that she wants to see the new movie as well so I guess I will have to pick up a copy since it will be just 2 bucks after the movie cash is taken out. But I still hate supporting that piece of shit. Ugh.

We watched part 1 tonight and my kid loved it. He got really upset when Uncle Ben died. :(

TheBang
06-16-12, 11:05 PM
I did a comprehensive comparison of the features on the 2012 blu-rays compared to the DVD releases:

Summary

Spider-Man - The new release contains all previous special features except for a couple insubstantial ones. Recommendation: dump all previous releases and buy the 2012 Blu-ray.

Spider-Man 2 - Although it contains the regular and extended cut and the most substantial special features, the 2012 Blu-ray loses some features from the previous DVD releases due to space constraints. Recommendation: Buy the 2012 Blu-ray, but if you want all the features, you'll have to keep both the Spider-Man 2 and 2.1 DVD's.

Spider-Man 3 - I don't own the new one, but based on what I read, it looks like it's simply Disc 1 from the previous 2-disc Blu-ray release, missing all the content of Disc 2. Recomendation: Buy the original 2-disc Blu-ray release and avoid the 2012 release.

For anyone wanting to buy Spider-Man 3 on Blu-Ray with all of the special features it originally had and get the free ticket for The Amazing Spider-Man:

I was at Target yesterday and they had the original 2 disc Blu-Ray of Spider-Man 3. On the front of it is the ticket thing for The Amazing Spider-Man, though just like with the Prometheus ticket it seems that you'll have to print it out. It cost $14.99.

I'm more curious about the transfer for Spider-Man.

I watched all three on Friday (the original Blu-rays, not these new reissues) and I've read time and again about how "bad" the transfer for the first film is.

How does the new release compare in terms of video quality? I've read the review here but I'm just wondering if anyone's done a straight comparison between the old and the new.

I've never had a problem with the old transfer so I won't be upgrading to these new releases but I'm still curious.

Did you see if they had a Spiderman promo cardboard shelving unit in the middle of the aisle?? That's where I found my copies. They weren't on the normal shelves where they put their new releases at.
I found a new Walmart that hasn't been opened too long in this area, so I went there on Saturday and they had the display. This store was extremely well stocked and dwarfed the other Super Center. So I'll be checking in there more often.

Cool!! Glad to hear that you found the display. :thumbsup: It's just odd how some Walmarts have more selection of blus than other Walmarts. That is how it is here in SoCal.

I stopped in the older location today and lo and behold, there's a big Spider-man cardboard setup in the middle of the media area. Only 1 week late.

If you bought these at Best Buy, you can get a price adjustment starting Sunday as they will be $9.99 each.

Nice, I was kind of thinking/hoping BB would have a lower price soon.

Does anyone know if the disc art on these re-releases are the same as the Target Exclusive Trilogy set??

The disc art matches the design of the new covers, so i'm sure it's different from the old Target set.

I do have the Target Exclusive Trilogy but I was also thinking of buying the re-releases because of the DTS-HD audio tracks. Was just curious if the disc art were the same. I guess I'll find out sooner or later.

Yeah, picked the first two up at Best Buy for $10 each (basically free, since I'll be using the movie cash).

When I upgrade, I usually get a blank two-disc Blu case and make a DIY Blu+DVD package. But in this case, I did just the opposite.

These new Blu covers are so friggin' ugly I would up finding a two-disc DVD case to house both in my old Superbit box.
