Hello all,

I'm still very new to this forum but I've had great fun reading through all of the various opinions and facts available here. And the fact that Robert Harris posts product reviews here is an extra special treat.

I'm sure we have fans of David Fincher's "Se7en" here...

I'm interested to know if anyone has heard anything about an upcoming Blu-ray Disc release. I'm about *this close* to purchasing the New Line Platinum Series 2-DVD edition, but I'd hate to see a Blu-ray Disc on the market for this film only a few months from now.

Can anyone help?

Many thanks,

Rob

I've heard nothing, but New Line's catalog is now controlled by Warner, so who knows when they'll get around to it. You'd have to think that it would be pretty high on their list if they're gonna release from the New Line catalog, however.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

You can usually get this title for less than $10 these days (Amazon has it for $9.99 as we speak), so why not go for it; you could sell it for at least half that when a Blu-ray comes along, making your investment well below the value of your peace of mind...

Why not just rent it and wait to buy the BD version?

Rob,

Welcome to the forum.

Regarding 'Se7en' and most things Fincher: Over at the "Insiders" section of the forum, David Prior, developer and producer for most if not all of the Fincher special edition DVD's can be reached for such questions.

I noticed recently that he hasn't gotten around to answering one such question from another member of the forum, but it's a good section to monitor for such news.

Of course, that news will spread like wildfire when something is announced. I think that all of the Fincher movies are eagerly anticipated on BD, and 'Se7en' has to be near the top of most people's list.

I've read over on David Prior's page that Fincher isn't prepared to revisit Se7en or any other title until he's done with The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which makes perfect sense to me.
