James Bond in Quantum of Solace
A brand new listing has appeared online at Australian DVD website EzyDVD for a 2-Disc Definitive Edition of Daniel Craig’s Quantum of Solace.
While details are extremely limited at the moment, this new release is due out on 28 July 2010 and will feature lenticular packaging (something that was briefly done for the James Bond DVDs in 2008).
Cover artwork, special features and whether or not this so-called Definitive Edition will also be available on the Blu-ray format remain a mystery for the time being.
CommanderBond.net readers will recall that Quantum director Marc Forster revealed in April 2009 that he was working on a special edition of the film that would include audio commentaries and behind-the-scenes featurettes, among other extras that were omitted from the original release.
At the time, Forster was also debating whether or not to include the original cliffhanger ending to the film as a deleted scene. It was in this one-minute long scene that 007 confronts Mr. White and utters the ‘Bond, James Bond’ line.
‘It wasn’t cut because of that sentence,’ Forster said at the time. ‘It was cut for other reasons. I think it worked but it is still better how it is. It’s not on [the original DVD release] and we are still discussing whether we should put it in the next one. On one hand, I think it would be cool for the audience to see it. On the other hand, I think it would be more interesting to keep it a mystery.’
