According to blu-ray.com, the swedish version comes out in 2 weeks... does that mean screenies soon? Dying to see how good this one looks.

Good to see that it already has 4.5/5! Seriously, I wish Amazon would stop blending ratings of different media formats! mad.gif

Glad to see it's no longer just a pipe dream, though. Hopefully it is up to par with Ben-Hur!

Looks like Lawrence of the Artic - no sand, no sun, no blu sky, everthing is just white and blue?

I guess it doesn't really matter as long as the Blu-Ray is as good as RAH says.

I never did like the Sony UK cover series, it's always baffled me how popular they are.

That kind of stuff is popular? eek.gif
While usually horrible covers of classic releases (King of Kings, The Bible) do not get any love from the custom cover designers I hope that somebody will at least take on Lawrence and do a cover that is based on a movie poster at the time of the theatrical release.

No doubt the same box will be released stateside, not least since the picture seems to show the American release (English text everywhere, MPAA logos on the discs). The specs for the regular two-disc release state that the "plus d'1 heure de making of" is In Love With the Desert, which runs 83 minutes. It was released on DVD in France, but apparently nowhere else.

Amazon's pre-order link does show this as the U.S. artwork so you're probably right!

Or maybe they just borrowed the artwork in the absence of having anything else suitable to use! So have we gotten off-topic by talking about the French and now US releases?

I notice the box says "LIMITED EDITION" (of course). Does anyone care to speculate what this might mean for a U.S. release...?

There's a digital 'US premiere' of LOA in LA but it's sold out so I guess I will not be flying down there to check it out.

Forgot to mention, it's being shown in a couple of days or so, if I remember correctly.

Looking forward to Lawrence of Arabia on Blu-Ray this November in the US on November 13th. That new 4K transfer will look fantastic. And extras should exciting as well.

I'm gonna get the U.K. edition come September for less currency and less fancy packaging.

In real life I am Dot Mongur champion of the International Pacman Federation. I don't play the game, I operate it.....no dot is safe from me....

Good reminder. I've done that a number of times, and I like the results.

No commentary?! One of the most popular, praised, important and beloved films of all time and they couldn't find one person to do a commentary on it?! They've got to be taking the piss.

Full details have not been announced yet. That list probably came from TheDigitalBits post.

Who cares? Really. It's the MOVIE, you know, Lawrence of Arabia. I need to listen to some faux historian pontificate for four hours telling me what I'm seeing? No thank you. BTW, this restoration is astonishing. I saw it last night - and it's going to make an absolutely incredible Blu-ray.

I really do want this on blu-ray but I'm not at all willing to pay the price Amazon is currently asking for it (over $67 US). If it comes down to a reasonable price, or they offer up a simpler blu-ray package with reasonable pricing, it will definitely go into my movie library..

Me, obviously. Otherwise I wouldn't have written the post.

Just go to Amazon U.K. and get that version. It should fit inside your parameters.
