Is this Universal's first digibook? I can't seem to remember any from them.

Re: The Big Lebowski Blu-Ray Book >> 2011

hopefully they add some more features. You know what I'd love a Bridges, Goodman, Buscemi, and Turturro commentary. We'll never get that...but I'd love that if it ever happened.

Re: The Big Lebowski Blu-Ray Book >> 2011

One of the rare films that for some reason I never upgraded since I bought my Polygram DVD 12 years ago...I will definitely be upgrading now!

Frankly, I don't care what features are there as long as it's a new transfer.

Re: The Big Lebowski Blu-Ray Book >> 2011

New? I think Universal is still recycling them. IIRC, the recent Sandler flicks were recycles, but those were delayed from mid 2008.

The Big Lebowski Limited Edition Blu-ray
Posted May 24, 2011 03:05 AM by Matthew Smith


Having been teased with a HD DVD release in 2007 and a 10th Anniversary Edition DVD in 2008, Lebowski fans will finally get to see the Dude on Blu-ray when Universal releases The Big Lebowski: Limited Edition on August 16th. The studio announced that the cult comedy has received a new remaster for the Blu-ray transfer and will be presented in its theatrical 1:85:1 aspect ratio. New special features will join those previously released on the 2-disc 10th anniversary DVD to make this the most comprehensive collection of supplemental material on the film to date.

The disc itself will be housed in a 28-page digibook featuring production stills highlighted by many of the movie's timeless quotes. Also within the book's pages is an interview with Jeff Dowd, the man is who is credited as the Coen Brothers' real-life inspiration for "The Dude".



The film's classic soundtrack will be presented in DTS HD Master Audio 5.1 and a digital copy will accompany the Blu-ray disc. It is not known at this time whether the special features outlined below will be presented in high definition.

New Special Features:
Scene Companion: A picture in picture mode that features cast and crew interviews, behind-the-scenes footage and more during key scenes.
Mark It Dude: On-screen counter that keeps track of all the "F-Bombs", "Dudes" and "Dude-isms" in the film.
The Music of The Big Lebowski: Instantly identifies the songs heard while watching the film, and allows the creation of custom playlists.
Worthy Adversaries- What's My Line Trivia: Trivia that tests your Lebowski knowledge by finishing lines of dialogue during the film. Play as Walter or The Dude or in two-player mode against friends.

Additional Special Features:
Jeff Bridges Photo Book: Exclusive shots taken on the set of The Big Lebowski by Jeff Bridges himself.
The Dude's Life: Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi and John Turturro take a look back at their performances and their delivery of the Coen Brothers' dialogue that became classic movie lines.
The Dude Abides- The Big Lebowski Ten Years Later: A conversation with the cast about the film's cult classic status.
Flying Carpets and Bowling Pin Dreams- The Dream Sequences of the Dude: Featurette on the making of the surreal sequences in the film.
The Making of The Big Lebowski
The Lebowski Fest- An Achiever's Story: An in-depth look at the popular Lebowski Festival, formed by the legion of fans in honor of the film.

That's only 50% off MSRP, which is a very common "discount."
