Thanks for this. You guys had me wondering if I was gonna have to crop the sides off this disc in order not to have to worry about that time-traveler!

Guess I will take my chances, and hope-like-hell I do not see him, or like the rest of you I will see him every time thereafter!

i read somewhere, i think it was at blu-ray.com's forums, someone ordered it from amazon.com and they got the older version. the best bet is to buy it in stores so you can find the remastered version yourself

It's just odd that Crowe's sword is cut in half by the shadow.

Boy's it ever--nice catch! Very odd indeed. Who knows how on earth something like that could happen? The crowd shot got layered over the Crowe shot somehow?

Cant cuz Im from the Philippines. Blu-ray titles are limited here, plus a lot more expensive. I guess safest bet is to wait a few more months eh?

Dutch. Let's see if we can keep this going back and forth.
post #2684 of 2846
Is the new remastered out yet everywhere?

The difference is extremely small, but given the choice I would pick the Dutch version, primarily to avoid what appears to be slight filtering during the first few scenes of the film on the US version (look at the ringing around the letterbox bars).

Me too... I just got my Blu-ray copy of Gladiator from Amazon.com yesterday, and it is the "R1" version :-(

I'm sending it back... in the meantime, I went to Best Buy and bought it there. It did NOT have the "2-DISC SET" above the Paramount logo on the back/lower right corner. When I opened it, the PLAY side did not have the "R1" on the inner ring either. In fact, it was very different. It started out with a BVDL notation (instead of "NA")... Does this suggest that the R1 EE version is single layer and this version is Dual Layer?

Also, the UPC on this BVDL version was WHITE and not YELLOW...

I went to Walmart and picked it up. From my understanding you need the one with the yellow UPC, on the plastic disc case the DTS HD master audio should have the symbol next to it in color, above the copy protected you should have technicolor, and the date is 2010. Below the paramount on the plastic case the number 11111019853, on the paper case 11111016517.

No. 25GB discs with that form of code start with "BVSS". The different codes have already been discussed earlier in the thread.

I figured I'd chime in here... Mailed my Gladiator disc off through priority mail on Aug 30th, received it Sep 16th. I'm in Central NY, so I figured a 2 1/2 week turn around time isn't bad.

The quality, as others are showing, is amazingly better than the original Sapphire.

I was watching the remastered version today and in chapter 14 of the extended version I ran into every kind of problems, first the player paused for itself on 1:24:54 and didn't respond, then I had pixelation problems on this chapter, I don't know if my disc is defective or if there is problem with my blu ray player, I have the panasonic bdp80 with the latest firmware update.

Pretty much the same turn around time for me also here in NYC.

Well he's telling the truth because the copy I just bought today has
BDVL-103860B1-3 AND BVDL 103860A1-1 on the inner ring. The number he lists for the paper case is what's on my paper case but my plastic case has:11111016515. Also people have said this is a guide for remastered edition recongnition:

1. No "2-Disc Set" printed above the Paramount logo found at the lower right corner of the slip cover AND the case. The words "2-Disc Set" can only be found at the spine.
2. No security sticker or factory seal at the top of the case.
Again, the disc I bought has this set of guidelines but I have no clue if this is remastered edition or not.

Never mind. Have it from the very best source that:

Simple way to check for remastered edition:

White UPC: Are the words "2-Disc Set" missing above the Paramount logo on the actual artwork? If the answer is yes then you have the 4k remastered version.

Yellow UPC: Is the UPC yellow? If the answer is yes then you have the 4k remasted version.
AND......
STICK TO THESE TWO CRITERIA AND STOP LOOKING FOR OTHER INDICATORS.
Case closed.
post #2696 of 2846
well just watched the movie and it definitely is the 4K re-master. Boy does this baby look amazing. Glad I waited to buy this version.
post #2697 of 2846
Has anyone seen the remastered version in Canada? Everywhere I look still seem to be trying to push out the original no-arrows version.

Was hoping with the release of Robin Hood we'd see the improved Gladiator as well. Wish they would have slapped a 15th anniversary version slip-cover or something onto the new ones to make it easy to identify.

Does it have to not have the 2 disc set if it has a yellow upc? I was at Walmart today and that's what I saw. Yellow upc but still had the 2 disc set on the inside cover but not on the slip cover. I wasn't sure so I passed.

Just got my copy in and it looks amazing. Only took about 2 weeks. Now i gotta find out how to send it my Saving Private Ryan.

That is the remastered. Latest and greatest.
