any news on Armageddon blu-ray?
 
I sold my crappy non-anamorphic dvd in anticipation for this. Since Con Air and The Rock are both out, I figure it can't be too long before this gets released right??

Hopefully, not.

Giles 03-03-08 02:14 PM

now if the uncompressed PCM tracks sounds identical to the DTS laserdisc I own... sold!

Since Con-Air, The Rock, and Crimson Tide all have had Blu-ray releases, you have to think this will happen. I don't know if I would buy it again, but I hope it gets a good transfer, and ports over all of the Criterion extras.

in theory that would include the film being the extended cut.

There was some interview with Michael Bay recently where he indicated that the negative had been damaged in a fire, or something (ironically enough), so while it's coming eventually, it will still need more work. I believe there's a link to that interview via The Digital Bits.

Here's that article: http://www.homemediamagazine.com/new...ticle_ID=12086

well in that case, remaster/remix the sound to 7.1

:D

Given that Disney crammed all the Criterion goodies onto The Rock, there's a good chance this will receive similar treatment.

Considering that "Armageddon" never received an anamorphic release on the DVD format, I think it's a safe bet that a new Blu-Ray transfer will blow any previous release out of the water.

It probably shouldn't take too long. They've generally been reluctant to put out their Miramax titles, instead focusing on their Touchstone and Hollywood Pictures titles that fit the young male demographic.

Then again, they haven't released many catalog titles, period, so who knows?

Yeah, because only films that you enjoy should be on Blu-Ray. Of course.

Being the Michael Bay love I am, i would buy this in a heart beat..

I hope so too. The gag reel on the Criterion version is one of my favorite DVD extras of all time.

The article says the master was lost in a fire. They will need to make a new master from the camera negative.

Sure it did. Just not in the US.

I would hope Disney would have the balls to port it over, and yes it is one of the greatest dvd extras of all time.

So it's been over a year and still nothing...I guess this isn't among the top of Bay's to do list.

The Bay films I most want on BD now are The Island and Bad Boys 2.

You may want to let the guy finish working on the biggest movie of the summer first.

The Island is available in the UK on region free blu-ray. It's only 9.98 at AmazonUK (+S&H).

If it had Bay's commentary and the awesome theatrical trailer, I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

Buena Vista/Disney produced and provided most of the extras for the Criterion releases including Armageddon. There are some materials that were provided by the filmmakers themselves like the gag reel for Armageddon.

The Region 2 UK special edition release for Armageddon is nearly the same as the US Criterion release except its anamorphic and does not have the gag reel. So there is the safe assumption that most of the extras will be on the eventual Blu-ray Disc but will be missing that gag reel.

Home cinema site The HD Room has gotten hold of cover art for the Blu-ray editions of two movies belonging to the Disney/Buena Vista catalog: 'Armageddon' and 'Tombstone'. Although that does not necessarily mean that either of these titles will be announced soon on Blu-ray, it is a good sign. No other edition details are known at this time.
