007 The Daniel Craig Collection on 4K October

007_the_daniel_craig_collection_4k

A 007: The Daniel Craig Collection box set is coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on October 22nd via MGM, according to an early retailer alert. The set contains FOUR of the “007” films that starred Daniel Craig (so far). It’s a bit unclear why they’re choosing to reuse the title again, the same as the Blu-ray set (released earlier this year) when another film has been announced and is coming in 2020? Oh well, “hindsight is 20/20” or perhaps 2020 in this case. However, I digress.

This set does include the following films: “Casino Royale” (2006) directed by Martin Campbell, “Quantum of Solace” (2008) directed by Marc Forster, “Skyfall” (2012) and “Spectre” (2015) directed by Sam Mendes. These films co-starred Judi Dench, Eva Green, Mads Mikkelsen, Jeffrey Wright, Giancarlo Giannini, Caterina Murino, Olga Kurylenko, Mathieu Amalric, Gemma ArtertonJavier Bardem, Bérénice Marlohe, Albert FinneyChristoph WaltzLéa Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes, Monica Bellucci, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, and Dave Bautista. I know that was rather lengthy but well, someone had to give credit to all of these actors and refresh your memory a bit as well.

The release will come as an 8-Disc set “combo pack” with Blu-ray Discs included for each film (likely to also house the original bonus materials) as well as digital code (copy) of each film. Speaking of which, so far there has not been an official announcement (sent to me) regarding this and as a result, we have no info regarding tech specs or if any new extras will be included on this [doubtful]. Stay tuned though, as I will keep this post updated. The 4K UHD Blu-ray is now available for preorder over at Amazon. Lastly, the release is said to include an “Extended UNRATED” version of the first film featuring Craig (Casino Royale). This has never been featured on the Blu-ray and seems to perhaps be a 4K exclusive? We shall see. Again, stay tuned.

The HBO series “Westworld” is receiving home video release of its second season, according to an early alert to retailers. “Westworld: Season Two – The Door” is coming to both 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc on December 4th via HBO (Warner). Tech specs and bonus materials have not yet been detailed by the studio, that I have seen, so stay tuned for an update on that. They should be identical to the tech specs on the first season, you would think. Just speculating there, though. The title is available now for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon on both 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc. Below, after below the break, you’ll find the cover art to the Blu-ray Disc version.
