I wonder if this will be available in other configurations - Disc 1-4 are essential for me ..but overall package size, it looks like its going to be double the thickness of the arrow Videodrome... the soundtracks and hardback sound fine but an option without would suit me better personally. That said, if this is the only variation available I'm in. I like this movie and only have a ropey DVD... Thanks for the update

Yeah. I have no need for books or soundtrack CD's either so hopefully they cater a package for those of us who just really want the film discs!

From intewebs : "They said the package will weigh just over a kilo (2.2 pounds)".

Postage is gonna be something else ...

Damn - heavy, heavy, heavy.......in more ways than one. The price tag......can only conclude will be more expensive than i thought, for these. As for the inclusion of book and cds, i think is justified for a movie of this stature - this, i would say, is a movie that deserves that full blown treatment. Other than that, i really hope this lives up to the anticipation. Fingers crossed!

Anybody knows which extras are exclusive to this edition ?
Looking at the details on box, i would say that the audio cds 1-3, the 150 page book, and the novelisation book would all be exclusive to this limited edition - that’s my guess, anyways. The 3 cuts of the film ( 3 discs) and the extras disc i think will be available at some later date. Only a guess, though.

Any news on the price?
No details yet when pre order is or price

You can expect price for either edition be high due to amount of discs and having 2 books

There will be a standard edition released at a later stage when both of the limited editions end up sold out

The standard editions will not have the CD's or Books

I might hold out for the standard editions then depending on what the pricing will be on these.......

It's not coming at a great time as the way the world is right now, a lot of people might have to skip on such an expensive set as a lot of people are out of work.

Depends on when this goes up for preorder. But maybe Secondsight will hold it back a bit longer until employment get back to normal a bit....?

I hope there is gonna be bare bones because otherwise fans and f*cked by Second Sight. IMO.

I do appreciate this whole package. But it's gonna be expensive, not everyone is gonna afford it. Or want it.

There are those who want movies in 4K scan and maybe some extras. That's it. "Affordable."

...oh well, time will tell. (hey poem) :rofl: :thumbs:

There will be a standard edition but not until limited editions have sold out

Second Sight always do standard edition after limited editions

The overall print run of the discs would be high you use a % of 4K and Blu-ray discs for limited edition and the rest of the disc stock is later used for standard edition
This is normal practice for a lot of independent distributors labels
