With the upcoming Kubrick re-releases in October, I was wondering what was happening with Barry Lyndon - is this not coming out with a new restoration set... is it coming on blu-ray/hd-dvd??? Do we know?

It will not be among next month's releases, Neil. Which is sad for me, since Barry Lyndon is often my "second favorite" title by Mr. Kubrick. But a reissue will occur eventually (probably in a time when this stupid format war has been decided).

Thanks for tha info Jack. I wish there was some concrete news about Kubrick Blu-ray in the UK... I have to say, that I am close to upgrading to Blu-ray PS3and I'd like to christian my new set up with the blu-ray 2001... gutted though that they are holding out on Barry Lyndon, this too, is my second favourite.

Is it not being re-isseued at all, even in SD?

It's my No. 1 favorite Kubrick film Posted Image.

(I've said it in every Lyndon/Kubrick/"most-wanted SE" thread, but I'm going to keep chiming in until Warner counts all these posts and gets motivated.)

A new SD edition is being released on 10/23/07, but I can't tell if it's anamorphic, or just a reissue of the older release.

Amazon is saying Widescreen. Hopefully if this is true then an HD-DVD release is not too far behind. Posted Image

Also Lolita shows for an 10/23 SD-DVD release in WS according to Amazon.com:

Actually, the previous releases of Barry Lyndon (and Lolita, IIRC) were widescreen: they were matted at 1.66:1, albeit without anamorphic enhancement.

The real question, which hasn't been answered yet, is whether these new releases are anamorphic remasters.

That's right... I keep forgetting they technically were letterbox transfers since the last time I watched "Barry Lyndon" was several years ago on my now long gone 27 inch Sony VVega.

I know this isn't of interest to most people here, but wasn't the R2 version anamorphic?

Nope. I have it, and it's definitely not anamorphic.

That's terrible. I think I might wait for HD now, though.
