Well, you have to figure it's only a matter of time... When that will be is the question.

What I know > There's been no official announcement of a new Kubrick set.

Yet.

From that thread > "Of course, none of the Kubrick films had been presented in anamorphic before."

Oh really... Could've fooled me (2001: ASO).

I will not be surprised, at all, when and if this happens...

2001 A Space Odyssey is the only one I've read of getting a new release.

The only three movies I ever liked of his were:

1) 2001: A Space Odyssey

2) Dr. Strangelove

3) Spartacus


So a special edition of 2001 I would gladly pay for

I would be pissed, I've quad-dipped on one Kubrick title (strangelove) and tripled on Eyes wide shut, and doubled on the box set in it's current incarnation...Just leave the damn things alone!

Ya, I think it would be very cool for some nice SEs, I've bought 2 copies of most of the Kubrick's I have, and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't get an SE unless it was ~$10. Although being able to get rid of the snappers would be very nice.

This guy obviously knows what he's talking about:

I know that Kubrick wanted those films to be presented full-frame, but from what I was told, they could still be presented in anamorphic, but just window-paned at 1.33:1.
some movies were shot in 1.33:1. But, from I was told, they can encode the discs to be anamorphic and still present them in 1.33, at a higher resolution.
What's his Warner Home Video inside source? The janitor?

I'd be all over a new Kubrick box set since I do not own any of the current set. I do have 2001: ASO and A Clockwork Orange in the silver book like gift sets with senitypes though.

I think Warner should have got it right the last time when they re-issued Kubricks movies with new transfers. People who own the current set may be a bit miffed and upset since this would be the third progression of all of Kubricks movies. I know a couple people who bought the original set and then had to upgrade to the remastered set. Just imagine triple dipping on a third box set!

I'd like to see a 2001: Special Edition. Other than that, I'm satisfied with what's out there.

I am sort of amblivalant to this. On the one hand I would love to have some of his films in widescreeen on the orther Kubrick clearly wanted his films presentes as they are now. I hope they at least work with the cameramen, producers etc. like the previous release and get an approval from the Kubrick estate.

I call this as bullshit.

We're not gonna see another Kubrick DVD set until there is a widely accepted HD-DVD format established.

perhaps Kubrick wasn't aware that 16x9 HDTVs would soon make an introduction to the world....

Kubrick died in early 1999... The man was miles ahead of most people, technically, and his passion was film... Of course he knew about widescreen televisions, they were already available at that point. Contrary to a lot of rumors floating around in the press and the like, Kubrick was not a complet hermit... Shut in and locked away from the world and no longer embracing of new technologies or unaware of progress. So, the line of thought that Kubrick was not aware of HDTV or future technology makes little sense - IMHO.

Isn't the new version of Dr. Strangelove in anamorphic? Anyway, if WB can improve on the versions that are out there, for all the movies, I would be more than happy do buy it again, even though, like many of you, I have bought most of them two or three times before. Definitely would like to see some pretty anamorphic transfers.

Haven't purchased any of these titles so SEs would be great.

I read they were releasing a NR version of Eyes Wide Shut, without all of the digital crap. Whether or not that is part of a larger series of re-releases, I do not know.

By about 30 seconds. It is the same cut audiences saw in theatres.

It's weird that the Eyes Wide Shut trailer was not included on the DVD.

Perahps because the star is naked in a longer shot than the one that appears in the film.
