    Universal Studios has just announced The Big Lebowski: Collector's Edition for release on October 18th.

    The only info for now is separate anamorphic widescreen and fullscreen editions and a retail of $19.98. A Gift Set will be available as well for $49.98.

    All I ask is "Please no DVD 18". Universal's cannot manufacture these discs, and as badly as I want this, I will pass if it is released on DVD 18. Any other studio, and I could probably overlook this, but not from Universal.

    Sounds good. I don't care if it's on a DVD-18 or not.

    At least the WS and FS versions won't both be crammed on the same disc this time.

    $10 says that the gift set comes with a bag of "The whites". [​IMG]

    Excellent! Only annoying thing is that I caved in and bought the original release only a few months ago but this won't stop me from getting it.

    I hope Universal will use a new transfer for the SE. If not, I'm skeptical about double dipping (the Coen bros DVDs aren't exactly known for their special features).

    A Dual Sided/Dual Layer disc

    Universal has had problems with nearly every title that they've released on this format, particularly they hang up & pixellate around the layer change.

    I don't see why they would use a DVD-18 for a movie that runs 118-minutes and I doubt that the extras be that extensive. New anamorphic transfer, commentary, new interviews with cast. I reckon it will be a 1-disc, like 12 Monkeys.

    BTW, is the Casino disc truly a DVD-18 or is it a DVD-14?

    At first I didn't understand what this meant but now that I think about it, my DVD-18 of Orgasmo does indeed hang up at the layer change on the supplements side of the disc....HMMM.

    DVDPlanet added this title today. The two-disc Gift Set is called The Achiever's Gift Set (the CE is a single disc).

    "And proud we are of all of them."

    Hallelujah! This is one title I've been expecting, nay hoping to double-dip on. I'm all for the "Achiever's Gift Set." I wonder what's in it? Creedence tapes? Thai sticks? A copy of "Logjammin'"? When will we find out?!

    Fuck it, I'm going bowling.

    "Shut the fuck up, Donnie."

    Cool, I bought this used a few months back and that was my first experience with the film, and I can't recall the last time I laughed so hard and so often! [​IMG]

    Maybe 'The Achievers Gift Set' will come with some of Donnie's ashes in a tiny coffee can for spreading at sea. [​IMG]

    LOL, that would be funny if the collectors set came with a rug! [​IMG]

    I will wait and see what this set looks like in the A/V department. As much as I like supplements, I have probably 100 DVDs in my collection that I have not watched a single supplement on, so Im going to sit on the fence for this one.
