Vudu has a 4k stream of it. Maybe if there is a VOL 2.I would have liked "Funny Girl" to have been included. It got a terrific restoration for its blu ray release but has never gotten a release with any extras except a trailer and short promo films made at the time of it's original theatrical release.
Me, I'd buy most of them if they were released individually. The only ones I don't want are Jerry Maguire and A League of Their Own. But my wife would probably like to have the latter, which we don't already have on any format.So, that's the set?!
One rumor had it at 39 titles
Another, I believe at 19.
This is six. Not sure I am even excited about it. The only one I want is Lawrence of Arabia if sold as a single.
There's eight UHD discs (Lawrence and Gandhi have an additional disc due to film length), six Blu-rays for the films themselves, two Blu-rays for the supplements on LoA and Gandhi, and one bonus disc. 17 discs in all.Me, I'd buy most of them if they were released individually. The only ones I don't want are Jerry Maguire and A League of Their Own. But my wife would probably like to have the latter, which we don't already have on any format.
On edit: I just looked at the Amazon listing. It's 17 discs...UHD plus BD plus DVD! Seriously?! Eliminating just the DVDs would allow for another 2-3 movies. Of course, the count doesn't allow for 3 discs for each title (that would require 18 discs), so I'm not sure what's being left out. Not to mention that the Lawrence BD Collector Set had an extra Special Features disc in addition to the Movie + Features discs that were in the regular editions.
That makes more sense, now that I see the breakdown. As I said above, the Amazon listing said it was UHD, BD, and DVD, which makes no sense.There's eight UHD discs (Lawrence and Gandhi have an additional disc due to film length), six Blu-rays for the films themselves, two Blu-rays for the supplements on LoA and Gandhi, and one bonus disc. 17 discs in all.
There's no reason why they can't combine the two supplement discs from the Lawrence of Arabia gift set onto one BD-50. The only HD contents are the deleted scene, the vintage featurettes, restoration featurette, premiere footage, and the trailers and TV spots. The rest are all 480p/480i.
Seems like the Blu-rays are all the existing discs, which is why the "new" content is placed on the UHD discs, with the exception of condensing the two Lawrence discs into one.
Do they understand that polls tell them how many people are interested in these films on UHD, but not how many would actually buy them? Or buy them, but wait until they appear in a bargain bin at Best Buy for under $10 a pop.https://deadline.com/video/dr-stran...league-of-their-own-columbia-classics-oscars/
Link to an article about this set that includes a trailer. Trailer makes it seem more exciting, so good job on the trailer.
The other two films selected by the studio are more recent: 1996’s Jerry Maguire and 1992’s A League Of Their Own (which might be the closest we get to baseball this season). So how did they get in here with the quartet of certified classics? Sony took a poll of consumers asking which “modern” classics they wanted to get this kind of 4K treatment, and out of a reported 30,000 responses League was No. 1 and Maguire was second. So there is something here even for anyone unaware that movies existed before the ’90s.
