I used to work in that building, so part of me wants the replica just for that reason. But I'm still passing as most of the sequels bore me.

I see this includes the Unrated version of Live Free or Die Hard on Blu-ray. Currently the Unrated version of this film has only been available on DVD.


This is not however a good reason for me to do a huge double dip on the franchise.

The original 5 star collection of Die Hard also had an extended version (accessible via seamless branching). To my knowledge, this hasn't been released since. Wished it would be available via Blu-Ray, including this addition. What does Fox have against releasing unrated versions on Blu Ray that was previously released on DVD (Die Hard, Commando, Independence Day, Fantastic Four)? Although admittedly they did finally released the DC version of Commando in the UK as a steelbook.

Given the time frame of when the extended versions were released, my guess is that the extended versions of all those movies were finished in standard definition. In order to have the extended versions in HD, they'd have to locate the film elements of the deleted scenes and that may be impossible or it may be a cost that they don't want to incur or it may be something that they just simply don't bother to do.

Nice looking model, but didn't Fox do a new scan of Die Hard a few years ago (I'm sure I can remember reading here about a showing on a big screen), & Die Hard 2 could really do with another go.

Yippee-Ki-Yay....NO. Unless theses are remastered editions (which I doubt), I will stick with my current collection. This packaging, while interesting, is simply too cumbersome and unnecessary for my tastes.

That is a nice theory, but I'd have to say that probably would not be the case. The reason why I say that is that even though DVD is SD, the titles in question were anamorphic widescreen, which means that they were created from HD masters. That would mean that the source (including the extra scenes) are already in HD. Another title from Fox that is relatively new by comparison that does not have a blu ray release (but has an FX TV showing) is an extended edition of Iron Man. (The same could be said of Jurassic Park from Universal - no home video release, including Blu Ray, but an extended version shown on TV).

Thanks for the info, Ron. Putting the set in the Nakatomi building is pretty fun (and I'm not even a big fan of crazy packaging) but I'm not re-buying the same stuff for a box. I'd have definitely bought it if it had been new transfers though.

It was just one scene and it had missing elements (a couple shots are in black and white!). Waste of time addition if you ask me.

I'm pretty sure they'll release this set without the tower at some point.

That is definitely debatable as it pertains to Die Hard. Not trying to hijack this thread, but the overall point was the issue of Fox not putting previously released unrated DVD versions on Blu Ray (Die Hard, Commando, Independence Day, Fantastic Four, xXx). In Die Hard's case, I admit that the scene in question doesn't add a lot to the story, nor takes anything away from it, but it would be nice to have what's already been released on Blu.

Its disappointing, that they use the old discs for this set and new 4K transfers exist. Its time for remastered Blu-rays like Sony and Universal did

The original extended edition of Die Hard just had 2 sequences from the deleted scenes section watchable within the film. They were inconsequential and were deleted for a reason.


The unrated version of Die Hard 4 has been available on Bluray outside the US for well over a year although it's always only available in a boxset - fortunately in standard sensible priced boxsets and not an overpriced one with gimmick packaging
