    Inoticed early today, that blu-ray. com has listed under their new upcoming titles and mca combo release of Spartacus due on June 5.
    I am surprised there is no mention of it here.
    Any one else have more info?

    I saw that, too. I pre-ordered it just in case it's a new transfer. Hopefully, it's not just a repackage that adds a DVD version.

    AFAIK, there's nothing new here. Avoid.

    If this is the same, universally panned transfer, it reveals a level of contempt by MCA for it's customers.

    I still have 'hope' that Universal with Criterion will release a new version 'down the road'. Perhaps wishful thinking but I can't believe that the present Universal Blu is the last word on Spartacus...

    I'd think that Spartacus is a better selling title than Out Of Africa so if they've already revisited/corrected that one then a re-release of Spartacus is a question of when and not if.

    I just love the title of this thread. It refers to a company that hasn't existed in any form in the last 5 years.

    Word back from Uni is that it's just a repackage with Digital Copy.
