  1. James Bond Blu-ray Special Features Confirmed

    Since their official announcement last month, details and cover art for the upcoming James Bond Blu-ray discs have started to come in.

    The special features that will accompany the first six Bond titles (Dr. No, From Russia With Love and Thunderball, Live and Let Die, For Your Eyes Only and Die Another Day) have now been confirmed in a press release.

    The listing of extras should look pretty familiar to most 007 fans as it’s merely the special features that debuted on the Ultimate Edition DVDs carried over. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment did confirm to TheHDRoom that the special features would be presented in high-definition.

    Furthermore, click here for a closer look at the two boxed sets that will also be released in the US, holding three Bond films each. Both of these sets will include two ‘E-movie cash’ coupons to catch Quantum of Solace in theatres.
