Rocky Collection Being Prepared for Holiday Release

Blu-ray.com:

Eric Doctorow, General Manager of MGM Worldwide, revealed in an interview for Home Media Magazine that the studio is currently preparing “the entire Rocky collection” for Blu-ray in time for the holidays. So far only the first and the last Rocky films ('Rocky' and 'Rocky Balboa') have been released on Blu-ray.

I hope that this time they do it right and include extras for all films.

In for rentals of all of them. Passed on the current BDs knowing this would eventually come.

If they include ALL bonus features I might bite.

Yeah, they keep making waves that Stallone's gonna do commentary on all of them...if that happens, I may be swayed.

Re: Rocky Collection Being Prepared for Holiday Release

Considering how many times they re-released Rocky on DVD, I imagine the same is going to happen with it being released on BD. I'm hopeful that this release does consolidate all the extras but I doubt that'll be the case.

Re: Rocky Collection Being Prepared for Holiday Release

I would love it if they released a Rocky Boxset of

Rocky
Rocky II
Rocky III
Rocky IV
Rocky Balboa

It can be like Marty McFly's family picture in Back to the Future, "erased from existence!"

Re: Rocky Collection Being Prepared for Holiday Release

The real question is will they will be sold individually so that us suckers who bought R1 and RBalboa won't be forced to buy them again in a box set. Unfortunately, studio executives are dicks so I think I know the answer to that question...

Re: Rocky Collection Being Prepared for Holiday Release

I already own 1 and 6, but considering 1 was barebones I won't mind double dipping as long as all 5 have some new extras! I'm getting tired of a new Rocky boxset every year only to have 2-5 shafted on bonus features every time.

Re: Rocky Collection Being Prepared for Holiday Release

I never bought the series on dvd because only the first one ever got a good SE, If they give the whole series some new extras. I'll buy.

Won't happen. There have been three different releases of these films on SD, all with different bonus features.

Wait, maybe I'm thinking of Rambo.

Well, I bought two of the DVDs for "Rocky." And I gave in to Rocky IV with DD5.1

I want I-IV with either a Dolby TrueHD or DTS-MA track. Otherwise, I'll pass.

Re: Rocky Collection Being Prepared for Holiday Release

A thread on blu-ray.com has the apparent artwork for this set. It's added to the OP. releaselists.com is showing October for the release date.

Re: Rocky Collection Being Prepared for Holiday Release

I am drooling over that box! I cannot wait for this! I already own Rocky and Rocky Balboa, but will get rid of them quickly for this.

Stallone has stated he WANTS to do commentaries on them, but if they will is up in the air I guess. I really doubt there will be any special features, but I do hope and pray there will be.

Re: Rocky Collection Being Prepared for Holiday Release

I love that coverart. I hope this is a great release. I've held off on Rocky Balboa and Rocky for quite some time now. I'm hoping the five that matter get great transfers and are loaded with special features. If they wanna toss in a Rocky V coaster that's fine.

Digital Bits mentioned it's been moved to next yr...also Lucasfilm probably would've announced it at Comic Con if it were coming. But yeah, I'm kinda glad ... I've still gotta get the Bourne and Matrix sets... and now Rocky.

I guess since this series is complete (right?) the packaging is less important to me... but I'd prefer separate slim cases.

Re: Rocky Collection Being Prepared for Holiday Release

You'd think with a title like "The Undisputed Collection" that there would be special features.
