Bigger Pic

FOX is big on books, evidenced by their Alien Anthology, Star Wars and Planet of the Apes sets. Two of those came out later in individual Blu-ray plastic cases.

I don't think there's any confirmation on the region coding. I believe a few pages back someone said that they'll actually most likely be region locked.

I concur that they'll likely be locked. But I'm region-free and thusly don't care

Re: James Bond Update

The bonus features listing is kind of generic; it doesn't give the titles of the featurettes included, etc., so it's not really possible to see if anything from the previous DVDs/BDs is being dropped (except that Casino Royale does seem to be missing items from the two-disc as pointed out).

I have every single one of the two-disc DVDs and I'm not parting with any of them until a more detailed list of extras is available (which I realize may not be until just before the set comes out). There's just an incredible archive of Bond lore on those discs (and on the BDs, for the movies that got BD release previously).

That box looks awesome! I think I'm in the minority but I love the book packaging - it just makes the collection feel more special - and if your careful their isn't really a scratching issue.

According to the guys at blu-ray.com this will be region free like the individual releases.

Re: James Bond Update

I love that book, sucks I have almost all of them in either DVD or blu-ray. If it ever reaches a low price point or I find it for cheap used I'll grab it. But it might not happen for a few years if at all...

I like it too. And it looks thin enough where I can easily find a place to squeeze it in - a lot easier than individual blu-cases would be.

Re: James Bond Update

From Bill Hunt via FB:

"UPDATE for all Bits readers following me here RE: Bond 50 BD extras - I've just heard back from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. As expected, the list posted yesterday - and included in the official press release - was simply a "marketing highlights" summary. The comprehensive list of extras on the discs in the box set is significantly longer. We'll post additional details as the studio makes them available."

Re: James Bond Update

Awesome! Good to see people who supported the several 'delayed' releases get fucked in the ass.

Thanks MGM!

of the few Fox UK discs I have, they haven't region locked them - why would this be the exception? - I don't want the book and I sure as hell don't want to pay close to two hundred bucks when the UK is 75 dollars less (give or take the conversion rate).

Re: James Bond Update

Looks like Amazon.com has sweetened the deal a bit with an exclusive bonus item . . .
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006U1J5ZY/



The un-excerpted version of the poster book publishes in September and will supposedly be 304 pages. Curious to know how many pages this "excerpted" version will be . . .

Re: James Bond Update

I want it but the price tag is too much for me to let go at the moment.

On post #102 it mentions various music videos that are already on the dvds. Some might be on the R2 dvds but they aren't new.

Re: James Bond Update

Digital Bits just posted from Comic-Con that the Bond set will have an empty space for Skyfall. Look at MGM, actually planing ahead.

This was already announced a few months ago - the set will include Skyfall 'video blogs' as well.
