Criterion Collection op BluRay

Nu de korte, hevige oorlog tussen de HD-formaten is beslist, met BluRay als winnaar, komt The Criterion Collection met het goede nieuws dat we hun sublieme selectie ook in High Definition kunnen bewonderen. Criterion is één van de weinige labels die al sinds de vergane hoogtijdagen van de Laser Disc garant staat voor uitgaven met perfecte beeld- en geluidskwaliteit en bijzondere special features.

Uit de newsletter:

Dear Criterion Collection Newsletter subscriber,

We’ve got some exciting news for this fall, and we wanted you to hear it first.

Our first Blu-ray discs are coming! We’ve picked a little over a dozen titles from the collection for Blu-ray treatment, and we’ll begin rolling them out in October. These new editions will feature glorious high-definition picture and sound, all the supplemental content of the DVD releases, and they will be priced to match our standard-def editions.

Here’s what’s in the pipeline:

The Third Man
Bottle Rocket
Chungking Express
The Man Who Fell to Earth
The Last Emperor
El Norte
The 400 Blows
Gimme Shelter
The Complete Monterey Pop
For All Mankind
The Wages of Fear

Alongside our DVD and Blu-ray box sets of The Last Emperor, we’ll also be putting out the theatrical version as a stand-alone release in both formats, priced at $39.95. Our Blu-ray release of Walkabout will be an all-new edition, featuring new supplements as well as a new transfer; we will also release an updated anamorphic DVD of Nicolas Roeg’s outback masterpiece at the same time.
