Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol - 4/17/12

Not officially announced yet, but this date is what's being thrown around. Amazon has their pre-order up. BD/DVD/DC combo pack. Their current pricing is $21.99.



Day 1 purchase for me and I really dig the artwork.

I wonder if there will be a "BIG SCREEN" version exclusive ALA Transformers for the IMAX scenes. That would be freaking stellar.

Also, is the name of the movie GHOST PROTOCOL?

I had fun with this in theaters. I might pick it up once it hits $15.

I'll wait until they remaster the first three and include this in a box set. I might be waiting a while...

I see a steelbook coming for France and the UK.. Why does the US get the shaft on pretty much all the steels?

I'm assuming it will be like THE DARK KNIGHT Blu-ray...2:35:1 for standard scenes, then the entire screen for the IMAX stuff.

Which is exactly how the Wal-Mart exclusive "Big Screen" Edition of TF:ROTF works.

You should have a good time. I was pleasantly surprised by how wonderful the IMAX presentation was when I saw it!

except that the BS ediition of ROTF (heh...BS) was only for Wal-Mart. I'm heavily assuming BD for MI4 will be avaliable for all IF we do get the IMAX scenes?

holy crap! I was nearly gripping my chair when the camera was looking down the skyscraper (the cover art) I have a fear of heights and the IMAX presentation replicated that fear to a tee.

Because people in the US buy Blu-rays no matter what (even if they're in crappy recyclable cases). Whereas the Europeans need a little more incentive to plunk down their money.

Thought it was pretty good. Not sure if I'll rush to buy it though.

It was pretty crazy, wasn't it? Heck, even some of the overhead shots of those cities had me watching in awe.

Re: Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol - 4/17/12

Just pre-ordered it on Amazon.com for $21.99. Loved the movie enough where I don't mind paying that price, but it would be nice if it dropped a few extra bucks.

Re: Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol - 4/17/12

This is definitely a movie I'd like to see the behind-the-scenes features on but I'm waiting for a price drop.
