    It's tough to read but I think it says '50th anniversary' to mark the JFK assassination. If it's the 30th anniversary of the movie, it won't be out for about 8 more years. :)

    Wasn't there already an Ultimate Collector's Edition of JFK? Or was that DVD only?

    Hey Brian!

    The last release of JFK on Blu-ray was the digibook release.

    I take it that this is the same transfer used for the first Blu.

    Looking forward to this. I skipped the first BD, so I'll be getting this.

    I was thinking of this. It was DVD only, released in 2008. I would consider purchasing this release if the theatrical cut were included.

    I think the theatrical cut will never be seen again.

    I wish Stone would at least fix the glaring continuity error that was introduced in the "Director's Cut", where Jim Garrison refers to Clay Shaw before he finds out who Shaw is in the film (in fact, Shaw's identity is revealed in the very next scene)!

    A closer look at the set...

    ...curiously, the set bears a 50th Anniversary banner across the top

    Interesting. PT-109 fresh from the Warner Archive. Too bad they didn't upgrade it to Blu-ray for this set.

    Obviously the anniversary of the assassination, not the film. Once again, just like the Titanic anniversary, why would anyone want to celebrate a tragedy?

    That's odd.

    I don't think I have seen a Blu-ray Collector's Edition celebrate the
    anniversary of the subject it portrays, but rather the original year of
    the film's release.

    They did a "60th Anniversary Commemorative" DVD release of Michael Bay's Pearl Harbor back in 2001.

    ahh, okay. So, I was wrong. Thanks for that information.

    I updated the thread to reflect the Anniversary release as
    dictated on the box.

    Which is unfortunate because it's a much tighter version of the movie.

    Overall I think the "Director's Cut" is the better version, except for that newly introduced continuity error, of course.

    TITANIC in 3D was timed for the 100-year anniversary of that tragedy.

    Vincent,

    I understand that, but it's not often that a Blu-ray release displays
    the anniversary of the event, but rather, the anniversary of the film.

    Of course, as noted above, there are a few exceptions.

    I hope the special features from the 2-disc DVD will be carried over.
