Re: Ultimate Film Collection Editions

Wow, they are really milking this product and tricking the fans so many times...

I rather they waited until they created an ultimate ultimate edition rather than tempt us with half-ultimate DVD's...

The DVDs sound tempting, but I'm going to wait and see how good they are. If they are just the ABC Family editions, I probably won't buy them since I have the ABC versions recorded on my DVR.

Re: Ultimate Film Collection Editions

Obviously these aren't "ultimate" editions, but that word is always a misnomer anyway (I lost count of how many ultimate editions there have been of Terminator 2 and the Evil Dead movies), but these releases do sound really very good, better than I'd expected: an 8-part documentary, new featurettes, two versions of the films, screen tests, it's tempting alright. (Also, it's very smart of WB to include a DVD with the 3-disc Blu-ray set - Disney's currently doing the same and I wish more studios would.)

Yep, definitely. There are a LOT of special features and it is tempting, but I've made up my mind to wait until the films are completely finished and buy the whole box set. One reason simply being that I don't have a blu-ray player yet but expect I will by 2012. The other being that from the description of how much footage is added for the extended editions I can tell that it's likely just the ABC Family versions.

I'm holding out for "never before seen" footage I'm confused as to what all these "deleted scenes" listings are though (see underlined)

You guys think those are gonna be NEW deleted scenes that were not included on the DVD's previously or are they simply the deleted scenes that are being reinserted into the movie for the extended edition...but like so you have the option of viewing them seperately?

I just hope to God we don't have to go through a stupid game again like on the SS/PS DVD to access the deleted scenes, so annoying

Re: Ultimate Film Collection Editions

I still doubt that these extended editions will contain any "never-before-seen footage"; the back of the packaging only states that it includes "footage not shown in theatres", which could easily mean that Warner Bros inserted some of the deleted scenes from the two-disk edition into the finished film (note my use of the word "some": I am certain that there was more than thirteen minutes of deleted scenes on the second disk of the first Chamber of Secrets DVD).

Based upon the other special features listed before these "deleted scenes", it appears that these third disks are merely the second disks of the previous DVD releases; both have exactly the same features.

Actually there are 13 minutes of deleted scenes on Chamber (someone on Fanedit.org reinserted the deleted scenes of all the Potter films back into the film. Sorcerer's Stone was 7 minutes (like mentioned on the packaging of the UE) and Chamber was 13.

Here's a trailer for the Ultimate Editions from Yahoo.com:

http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/1802813191/video/15629849

Looks great! Can't wait to buy them.

Right, which is why I am waiting till the series is complete and they release versions that actually do have "never before-seen footage"

Like the person above me noted, it was indeed only 7 and 13 minutes respectively. So these are merely the ABC Family versions available for purchase. Which is pretty cool, but not good enough. Not for me to rush out and buy em at least. I'm guessing there will be better.

Re: Ultimate Film Collection Editions

A new trailer, advertising the releases of the upcoming Ultimate Editions, has arisen on the Internet: http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/1802813191/video/15629849.

As I have previously stated, it appears that these extended editions are merely the deleted scenes from the first DVD release reinserted into the final film, though the special features do look intriguing. Despite my dislike for him, Chris Columbus's comments sound interesting, and I do love what happens at 1:16 or thereabouts. Poor Michael!

In addition, this trailer confirms the Ultimate releases of films three through eight, as well. I would definitely consider purchasing Ultimate Editions of Prisoner of Azkaban through Half-Blood Prince.

Re: Ultimate Film Collection Editions

Hi, I'm new here so I hope this is the right place to post this...Amazon has the first 2 Ultimate collections up for pre-sell. This is the link to the regular DVD version of the Sorcerer's Stone, you can link to the Chamber of Secrets from there. You can find them here. They have a great pre-sell price

When I first heard about this, I was hesitant but seeing the trailer changed my mind. I'm now saving to but ALL of those.

Re: Ultimate Film Collection Editions

Anyone see the thumbnail pic of the whole Ultimate Edition collection of films 1-8? You can see the color scheme of each film and it seems like they match the book covers. Awesome

Re: Ultimate Film Collection Editions

Only 7 minutes of extended footage? I probably will buy those two when they go down in price just for the interviews and such. Really Looking forward to Prisoner coming out though!

Re: Ultimate Film Collection Editions

I have a friend who has an Amazon Prime account and he's been ordering things for me. If you order the Ultimate Editions and choose two-day shipping, you will receive them on release day. Since Amazon Prime is free two-day shipping on all items, you'll get the sets on release day. Because he has been doing this for me, I am actually considering buying them. If I do purchase them, I'll write reviews on the extended cuts of the films and the extras.

That's how I always order from Amazon and it's great to receive the item on the day of release without having to select 1-day shipping. Definitely recommended this buying method.

Future Ultimate Collector's Edtions

Well, with the PS and CoS Ultimate Collector's Editions coming out in less than a month, I was wondering, what will the others be like? I hope they all come with extended editions (maybe even unseen deleted scenes). For OotP, I would love to see the Battle of the Ministry in its entirety. Oh how I yearn to see Sirius and Bellatrix duel. The extended edition of PoA is shown on ABC Family in the US, so it will probably be the same as that. But what about the others? Do you think they will just plug in the deleted scenes we already have, or put in new ones? What features do you expect to be on them?

Re: Future Ultimate Collector's Edtions

I suspect they'll just put the deleted scenes back in the movie. Then after all eight boxes are released they will hopefully want to earn more money and therefore put some unseen scenes on some NEW boxes... and THEN we will finally see Rik Mayall as Peeves (like we were promised 10 years ago!!!!)
