Hi Bryan Here…
This is such AWESOME news. Much like Kubrick’s sets before, we will be getting a “Limited Edition” Collectors Set of nine of Kubrick’s films plus the documentary, “A Life In Pictures” all on bluray!!!
Plans are to release this magnificent box set May 31st of this year. Warner Bros. sure knows how to roll out the red carpet for their titles.
The megaset will be a 10-disc collection containng nine films including: ‘Spartacus,’ ‘Lolita,’ ‘Dr. Strangelove,’ ‘2001: A Space Odyssey,’ ‘A Clockwork Orange: 40th Anniversary Edition,’ ‘Barry Lyndon,’ ‘The Shining,’ ‘Full Metal Jacket,’ and ‘Eyes Wide Shut.’
Finally we will get Lolita and more importantly Barry Lyndon (best shot film ever) on bluray. If Lolita and Barry Lyndon are anything like the hi-def transfers from the previous catalogue titles of Kubrick’s films, then these will be perfection just as well.
Specs have not been released yet, but the set will come with a 40 page hard bound book detailing Kubrick’s films.
SRP for the moment is $148.99.
