    If past is prologue, yes. We can probably expect this to be available for rent at full price ($19.99 here in the US) at the end of November/beginning of December.

    Apparently it's going VOD in the States next week Tuesday i think it said on the mi6-hq website

    It'll be for rent next Tuesday, probably at full price ($19.99). Probably for sale a month later for streaming, two weeks before it hits physical media.

    According to the listing at Amazon's US branch, No Time To Die comes out on Blu Ray/ DVD on December 21. Looking forward to picking up my copy then.

    Received mine a few days early, on my birthday no less, but can’t play it yet because the player won’t recognize it. I do believe the issue is with the player.

    Your player has good taste, I trust it as a Bond fan!

    BTW do people tend to buy BluRays and now the 4K thing because they have larger tellies and sadly the old DVDs just don't seem so good on them, rather back in the days of 40in flatscreens they were serviceable?

    I take it NTTD is also available as a BluRay 4K thing? And the older traditional Bonds will be released next year to tie in with the 60th anniversary?

    Can anyone recommend any great 4K classic movies worth the outlay? Not just Bond, but other ones like, say, Lawrence of Arabia? I asked on another relevant thread but it got ignored.

    LAWRENCE OF ARABIA and BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI look outstanding on 4K. Highly recommended.

    Others of note that I've been very happy with on 4K

    TOP GUN

    JAWS

    The INDIANA JONES films. RAIDERS, especially.

    @Silhouette Man was saying elsewhere the Being James Bond doc is only available on the 4k version of No Time to Die

  • Silhouette ManSilhouette Man The last refuge of a scoundrelPosts: 7,812MI6 Agent

    Yes, that's correct. As I said in that post I feel it was rather mean spirited of Eon not to include that documentary in all the home releases. However, I'm guessing it's a rather cynical ploy on their part to encourage us to buy the 4K disc as well. Sadly many Bond fans (myself included) don't yet have 4K TVs or 4K players to watch it on.

    Anybody know anything about this new Casino Royale release? (10th Jan in UK)

    I was going to wait for the (inevitable) Craig 4K Boxset before upgrading from the original Blu-Rays, but I find myself tempted with this. The Amazon link seems to give the most info on the release.

    Yes. Considerably.

    Prob just the same old disc in fancy packaging.

    Both the 4K UHD Blu ray and regular Blu Ray of NTTD are outstanding. The 4K UHD version has made many top 5 lists relative to picture quality and sound. My only disappointment with the 4K disc is that the IMAX scenes were not presented in the taller 1.90 to 1 IMAX ratio.

    Very much looking forward to the classic Bonds being issued on 4K UHD disc. The 4K UHD versions presently available on streaming platforms look good, but are really only about as good as a regular 1080p Blu Ray disc due to the bandwidth limitations of streaming platforms. It's going to take a lot to improve upon the 1080p Blu Rays of DN, FRWL, and GF as they are some of the best Blu Rays ever released but since all those classic Bonds were shot on 35mm film, new disc releases created from 4K masters with HDR, etc have the potential to set new standards. TB, which is an ok Blu Ray remaster but inferior to the first three, could really benefit from the new 4K / HDR remaster on disc.


    For those looking to upgrade to 4K UHD discs, I would highly recommend the 4K UHD Disc remaster of the original Predator. It's a huge improvement over the regular Blu Ray release and can be had for under $20.00. The Kino 4K release of The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly is also highly recommended as the color timing has been finally corrected and it's a great looking 4K disc in general (far superior to any previous physical media releases of that film).

    Some label called final cut entertainment have recently reissued CR 67, have any of you purchased it? Does it have any new features?
