Steven Spielberg Directors Collection ($52.36 SHIPPED from Zavvi)

Currently running a sale on the box set over at Zavvi:

http://www.zavvi.com/blu-ray/steven-.../10975128.html

It's 32.99, or $52.36 shipped to the U.S. (without tracking).

Assuming you're only getting it for the four yet-to-be-released solo titles (Duel, Sugarland Express, Always, and 1941), that works out to $13.09 per movie, plus the nice packaging, plus the four other films (it's $6.55 per movie if you're buying it for all 8).

I have no idea how long this deal will last.

Amistad was released by Paramount -- I lose track these days of who owns who anymore though
Amistad was a DreamWorks production.

Duel gets its standalone Blu-ray release on May 5, along with 1941, Always, and The Sugarland Express.

In the product description, it says Region B. Do we know something otherwise?

It's a Universal release, which has never region coded their Blu-rays.

As pointed out above, it's region-free.

For the record, UNIVERSAL and WARNER BROS. Blu-rays are always region-free, so never worry about coding on those titles. It's hit or miss with other studios, but SONY is almost ALWAYS region-locked, and FOX is hit or miss, but more unlocked than locked these days, it seems.

Being a Universal release, I'm very surprised that Schindler's List didn't make the box set.

We discussed this in the thread devoted to the set, and the general consensus is that Universal wanted to make this a "family friendly" release, thus no R-Rated movies in the set. Although if there's any R-Rated movie a kid should be allowed to see, Schindler's List certainly falls into that category.

Ah, I missed out on the conversation. It does seem ridiculous to exclude Schindler's List when you have a box set called, "The Directors Collection".

Thanks for the heads up Shannon. I'll bite at that price.

Awesome - thanks for posting, had to jump in at that price - Probably would have skipped Always on it's own but Duel and Sugarland were a done deal no matter what - I own all the 'non-exclusives' already but being a Spielberg die-hard, this price is too good to pass up.
