As James Bond fans in the US are aware, the only way to obtain the new ‘Ultimate Edition’ 007 DVDs for Region 1 is buy one or all of the four ultimate collection box sets. However, Double O Section reports that individual releases are on the way…
The ‘Ultimate Edition’ James Bond DVDs will be released individually in February 2007 in the US. They will presumably be in normal DVD case packaging, and not the slimcases contained in the current boxed sets.
There is, however, one catch: The individual releases will only be single-disc editions. The second disc, filled with new and old special features will not be included. Thus, the only extras available will be the audio commentaries for each film.
Each DVD will retail for $14.98 and the first set of releases (yes, keep rolling your eyes, you didn’t honestly think the US would get all the Bond films released at once, did you?!) include: Goldfinger, Thunderball, The Spy Who Loved Me, For Your Eyes Only, Licence To Kill, and GoldenEye on 6 February.
No details have been released in regards to whether or not the individual releases will use the same cover artwork.
