Universal Planning Dual 'Hellboy II' Blu-ray Sets | High-Def Digest

"In an early alert to the trades, Universal has announced plans to bring two versions of 'Hellboy II' to Blu-ray this November in two-disc and three-disc collector's edition configurations.

Tech specs and supplement details are still slim, but according to the ad, fans can look forward to high-def exclusive features including a "Build Your Own Comic Book" function and additional BD-Live content. All versions will also contain a Digital Copy of the film.

Complete details are also still to be revealed for the three-disc set, but the deluxe Blu-ray set will feature collectible packaging with additional goodies, including a painted Hellboy bust and more TBA."

I loved this film. Posted Image One of the best flics this year (from a very good summer) that got a wee bit overshadowed by Dark Knights, Iron-Men and a 60 year old with a bull-whip. I think despite the 75M take it barely passed it's budget which is a shame.

2-disc set for me. Don't need the bust or the build your own comic.

Same here with the 2 disc set. I'm kind of already sick of this digital copy nonsense that has been creeping into every release.

Actually the bust looks really cool to me. We usually get sent the non CE sets but I might have to splurge on this Uni release...

I'm with you. Bugs me that I am paying for something that I will never use. At least with HD DVD combo discs there was actually some use for the combo side since non hd dvd owners could borrow it although I didn't like paying extra for that as well.

This is one of the few movies I was interested in seeing this summer that I didn't get to; so this will be a rare blind-buy for me. However, blind-buys present little risk to me whenever Guillermo del Toro is involved. Posted Image
Universal Blu-ray Discs I will not be buying while they're offered only as Blu-ray + DVD 'flipper' discs:

The Jackal
, Out of Africa, and Traffic.

Guillermo del Toro drops acid much? Posted Image

If you think this movie is wild, imagine how The Hobbit will be?

I haven't seen that we're paying extra for any digital copies. I like it. It always ticked me off that I could import my cds into itunes with no problem but not my dvds. I'll be glad to have HB II (and Nightmare Before Christmas) in my ipod.

But why does the cover art for the 3-disc collector's set only say HELLBOY, not HELLBOY II: THE GOLDEN ARMY???
Ernest Hemingway once wrote, "The world is a fine place and worth fighting for." I agree with the second part...
