Can anyone tell me what actually this is?

http://www.amazon.co....s=dvd&n=507846

Is it just going to be the Special Edition with a $40 box added to it?

It's most likely the DVD, deluxe CD soundtrack, a poster, and some photos.

Don't ya just HATE it when Amazon does this?!! Posted Image

They leave ya flapping in the breeze wondering what the DVD details might be.

Sometimes I've noticed that they never change/update the technical specs for certain titles!

Warner Bros. does this with their big movies. Twister, Matrix, Wizard of Oz all have big boxes with the DVD, soundtrack, photos, script, etc.

It's another Creative Design Arts release. I've got a bunch of them (The Perfect Storm with George Clooney's signature, 2001, Full Metal Jacket, Clockwork Orange). I don't really like them because you don't get the original case with them, and those boxes are made of sh*tty material and dent easily in transit.

It looks like they're doing one of Ocean's Eleven as well. Go to www.cdaentertainment.com for details.

The Superman - The Movie box set looks a lot like this.

Why not buy the CD?. It's a great score, and that CD presents the whole thing chronologically. The DVD has the score isolated, but it's edited heavily.

The score is my favorite of all time.

Very true, Neil. But that price is a bit steep for the cd...

[quote] But that price is a bit steep for the cd... [quote] Not really, since it's a 2 CD set and the ENTIRE score is covered, plus alternate tracks. It's like buying two separate CDs for $14.50 each, which isn't bad considering its sales rank at Amazon is 15,474. Less demand, more expensive.

Honestly, since I got the Superman DVD for $14.99, and can get any cd at a Disc-o-rama in manhattan for $9.99, (Don't have this 2cd if I remeber correctly, however...) I think it IS a bit steep.
It's the CD pricing structure in general. I often can buy the DVD's of beloved films for less than the Score.
Most soundtracks list for $17.99 or $18.99 and many of these films wind up listing for $14.99 with the easy ability to buy for $9.99. Like "Sleepy Hollow" for instance. It's just lunacy that the CD now costs more than the DVD....

The Rhino soundtrack release of Superman: The Movie is damn near perfect. Not only does it have every cue in the movie, alternate takes, concert and pop versions, it even has the funky source music that plays in Luthor's place. I can't say about other film scores, but I'd put this release as the best John Williams score release ever.

That looks real sweet, kinda a bummer that they dont have the CD in there. Ive got the 1 disc one, but Ive been meanin to get the 2-disc. That poster is beyond cool, but wouldnt it be folded up? If so, then its kinda a sham, who wants a folded poster to hang up?

I've been wanting a full size copy of that poster for ages. They pop up on eBay from time to time, but always sell for more than I'm willing to spend. I have always wished that someone would do a good quality reprint, however, I can't imagine the one included in this set is standard lobby size (27"x40"). I'd LOVE to be wrong though. C

If the poster is standard lobby size, I will buy the box set.

I'd be VERY surprised if they didn't. They've always carried every soundtrack I was looking for.

And I wasn't just referring to this title.

Have you checked them out?
