Les Miserables Superbit - Any news?
 
As last reported in this thread, the Superbit of Les Miserables in Concert was pulled because some dumbass put the THEATRICAL MOVIE on the disc instead of the concert. Obviously, i twas recalled before it was even released.

Is there any word on if and when it will be [re]released?

i don't know... but buy.com has it coming out in december 31, 2004.

who knows? i am very interested in this as well.

Seeker 09-29-04 06:48 PM

I've almost given up on this, but I'd love a copy.

I was just thinking about this the other day. I'll be snapping this up the day it gets released... IF it ever gets released.

Funny, I just thought about this the other day as well (as I was listening to the CD set of the concert).

damn... this conversation just got me to buy the french cd set... created an account at amazon.fr... bought a couple different versions.

I gave up and bought an original copy of the DVD from a Canadian site. Got me an official R1 version and everything.

an upcoming 2-Disc UK edition has the concert and a second disc comprised of:

55min documentary entitled "Stage By Stage" Featuring Interviews With Cameron Mackintosh, Alain Boublil And Claude Michel Schonberg
Commemorative Booklet

can't seem to find any DVD specs on this but I would assume it's Dolby Digital and of course, it's in PAL.

Those sites have got to be wrong as the 31st is a FRIDAY!!!

Dammit, I read the topic and was hoping it WAS the theatrical film.


Sigh.

Considering that Columbia Tristar holds the rights to the movie, why don't they just release it. I watched the movie in the theater in 1998 and enjoyed it.

I have the original DVD. Not the best pic quality.

How was this recorded? Film? Hi-Def? Lower-rez video?

Wondering if an eventual Blu-ray version would be worthwhile.

superbit would be cool. I got mine from amazon.ca and the audio is okay but the video is not very good.

If I could get 5.1 sound and 1.78:1 anamorphic video confirmed I'd probably (a little afraid of PAL speedup on this one) get it but no site seems to have this information.

I just was about to buy the DVD of the concert from Amazon, thinking it it must have finally been released. Good thing I read this thread again... it's the Superbit that had the big screwup then? If the PQ on the current DVD isn't that great, I guess I'll continute waiting.

Bump from the dead

Has anyone heard ANYTHING about this? I found this on Amazon with some user pics of the case and disc. The last I heard was they mistakenly pressed the discs with the 1998 Liam Neeson version, though the discs and cases had the correct info on them. Any truth to that rumor?

Hell, at this rate, I might as well wait for the Blueray version...

shaun3000 09-28-07 02:23 AM

Ha, just saw that I'm the OP. I guess I really am the only one interested...

movielib 09-28-07 06:42 AM

I've had this one for a couple years:

Mine looks like it has the exact same disc but I don't have the booklet interior with all the lyrics like this one.

shaun3000 09-28-07 10:47 AM

How is the picture and sound? Is it really widescreen or did they just chop the top and bottom off?

vcuram 09-28-07 10:50 AM

Wasn't the "Superbit" series discontinued?

Not in 2004 when this thread was originally posted. :lol:

It's 16:9, OAR. Fullscreen chops off the sides. The sound is terrific.

I believe sam goody dot com has the 2 disc dvd for around $60. I was looking for this for my g/f. When I searched and clicked on the link they showed the single disk and it was not available, but to the side they had the other version. No idea if its region 1 or not. Hope this helps some.
Edit: just checked & ordered. It's region 3

melvin 09-29-07 04:23 PM

Got my email conformation!!! If you're unsure about ordering from outside the us, this might be a good idea. $66 including tax+ shipping. Thanks for bringing the thread back from the dead! Was watching this with the g/f on PBS last week and they were giving away VHS copies with a membership.

shaun3000 09-29-07 05:01 PM

It was $26 from DVD Heaven. I'd rather take my chances with South Korea (and I'm not worried) and save $40.

Thanks for the link!
