I'm curious why you're so interested in this set if you can't watch the 4k discs? Just the extras?

i bought the Blu-ray version, obviously. not 4K at all. the regular LE of Blus. and for all the cuts and all the extras on Blu and best that i can get right now. there is no separate thread for just Blus of this set so i posted my feelings of Blu version. 1080p certainly better than DVD, so...

but you would use 4K if someone were to hypothetically give to you as a gift, right?

of course, i don't denounce the greatness of 4K at all, and i wouldn't say no to a free tv that shows movies in much higher quality. i'm not a moron. i know the great advantages of a/v of 4K, but i wouldn't use as main tv. that has to be my 3D, but of course i would accept a 4K. so if you're offering dlf, then pm me and i'll send you my address

Not at all. God no. If they fucking made a 4K with that seemingly easy option for 3D capability, in a heart beat, but alas...

I’ve held onto my 3D Panasonic plasma like grim death, but I realized the better picture quality is more important than the handful of times a year I watch a 3D movie. Besides I’m not throwing my tv in the trash and pissing all over it, I’m moving it to another room.

Just got this email from DD.I used a CC and a 15% off code and ordered over a month ago. Just going to ordered from Amazon.uk if I decide I still want the set.
Looks like it is a rights issue with Rubinstein ?
Really I do not buy many preorders.

Got the same email from DD. It's funny, first I ordered from Base, then I ordered from DD as a backup, then Base cancelled and I ordered from Amazon UK as a backup. Now I just have an order with Amazon UK, which I hope goes through.

There have been a few times I've regretted ordering from Diabolik, but as more and more places have canceled people's orders, I'm feeling a little better. They've always been dependable in the past so staying optimistic.

Even if they're canceling orders to US retailers, these will still probably be readily available on eBay, no?

This would be the perfect title for Criterion to step up their 4K game with...

Unless people desperately need the printed swag, or the music CDs, just wait.

No doubt in my mind at all that a stripped down three disc version will be announced in 2021.

Second Sight already confirmed there will be.

Second Sight confirmed there would be a standard version, but didn't mention if the disc contents would be any different.

It was said elsewhere that they replied to an email saying that it would include all 3 cuts.

Random b-d . com forum member does not constitute official confirmation, unfortunately.

Random b-d . com forum member getting a FB message from the official Second Sight account is something... but all they said was "There will be a more 'standard' version later." which... isn't a lot, and isn't rock-solid, IMO. They definitely don't confirm all 3 cuts, unless there was a follow-up since then.

You guys said all the same stuff before they confirmed standard edition was coming. This is standard practice for all these boutiques. They cut out the goodies, but the content doesnít change. Why donít we all email them to ask and confirm.

Not disagreeing, but the Arrow Robocop standard edition is missing one cut of the film. I believe itís the same thing with the standard Re-Animator.
I wouldnít assume it was all three cuts. I hope for those waiting it out that it is.
