There were lots of concerns as to what this bundle was. Taking a chance, I pre-ordered it. It's actually 2 of the sapphire releases bundled together. So if you were to take Braveheart sapphire, remove the paper cover, then take the Gladiator sapphire, remove its paper cover, shrinkwrap the two together, and place it in a single paper cover. This is what you get. You get 2 double disc cases, the movies packaged separately. Not a single 4-disc case. No slim cases.

From what I can tell, the Gladiator version has a copyright of 2010, has a yellow UPC and appears to have the R2 code on the disc itself. This means you also get the re-mastered version, instead of the flawed old one.

Considering Amazon sells each individually for more than the bundle price, this makes a per-movie cost the least I've ever paid for a Sapphire release, and the lowest price I've ever seen for any Sapphire release.

I pre-ordered this 2 pack a few weeks ago and just got it today. I know there were a lot of people who held off on pre-ordering this, because it was unclear if this would include the special features of both movies, or if it would be a new packing of just the movies themselves.

I can confirm that the special features are included. It is a 4 disc set and each movie is in its own packaging. They're not in slim packs, either. What you get is 2 discs for each movie, in the original, full size blu-ray package. They come bundled in a slipcover, which is what you see pictured on Amazon's item description.

And at $18.99, this is cheaper than you could buy either movie individually. A great bargain.

Just received my copy from Amazon, these are not slim packs but the Saphire discs. In total 4 discs in total, 2 for braveheart and 2 for gladiator. Hope this helps you in your decision.

I know some people are interested to know if you got the remastered version of Gladiator. The only sure way to tell is look at the inner ring of disk 1 and look for r1 or r2. R2 is the newer remastered version. All the talk about upc color or missing "2-disc set" wording won't help you in this case. In fact everything indicated that my disc would be the older version on the packaging but when I opened it up it was the remastered version. In fact my special features disc (disc 2) was from the old version so it looks like they just swapped out my disc 1 from the this set for the new one. If you do indeed receive the "bad" version of Gladiator and want to do a swap, Paramount is doing a free exchange program. Just call 323-956-3010 and give them your information.

I received my order of the Braveheart / Gladiator [Blu-ray] today.
I'm very excited and at the same time, worried about the non-remastered copy of Gladiator.
I read about the telltale signs of the packaging about UPC / 2 Disc-Set above Logo / Color of the disc - dark grey etc.

However, all the above doesn't matter because I know I got the re-mastered copy with the B1R2 on the backside of the inner ring under DISC 1.

I played the disc and is delighted at how good the picture is on the opening scene. Everything looks perfect.

And for those who liked to know the signs - here's what I got

1. A Yellow UPC
2. A 2-DISC SET above the Paramount logo on the back of casing
3. Light grey disc for both Disc 1 and 2
4. A B1R2 indicated on the underside of DISC 1 <- nothing beats this

For Sapphire discs on both titles at 2 Disc each, its really a bargain! Grab one 1 now!
Couldnt be happier!

In this twin-pack you get the same 2-disc, BD cases of the Sapphire Series-version of these movies sold separately at a higher price - no slim cases or anything of the sort. The Braveheart part of this twin-pack is the same old, reference quality version - no point discussing that one - so my review will focus mainly on the confusion of Remastered vs Old (DNR-laden) version of the Gladiator BD.
First of all, you can confirm which version you have with Paramount at 888-889-9456, as opposed to trusting rumours being spread by guessing folks :).

The first thing they ask you is if the UPC label is all yellow (remastered, new version) or white (old version). This seems now also the only necessary "proof" of having the new version - I suppose they don't ship new versions with white UPC anymore.

Also, regarding the alphanumerical sequence on the inside of the back of Disc 1, it can be a number of combos that indicate the new version - not only the B1R2 (remastered) vs B1R1 (old version) - so you are better off just giving them what you have and they will cross check it for you. I have the Remastered version and my disc has "BVDL-103860B1" on it, which is also a CONFIRMED way to tell the remastered version apart from the old one.

Furthermore, there was a mention of the new version having the title "Gladiator" on black letters vs gold letters for the old version - NOT TRUE, as I have a gold-titled BD and it is a remastered copy.

The new version also NO LONGER has the white security sticker at the top of the case. And then there is the "2-Disc Set" above the Paramount Logo at the back (right bottom corner) on the new, remastered version.

And the final test, of course, would be to check if you can see the arrows and catapult ammunition in flight without them disappearing into thin air during the first battle scene of the movie.

Bottom line is, if you are still in doubt, just call Paramount :)

I received my pre-ordered blu-ray versions of Gladiator and Braveheart today. They are wonderful. I watched a little of Gladiator and Braveheart and the picture is outstanding. Its also great having the extended versions of the movie. They have many new scenes not in the theatrical version. I can't wait to watch both movies all the way through. These are two of my favorite movies of all time.

I recently received the 2-DVD set of Gladiator (Extended Edition) and Braveheart together in the set called The Epic Legends Collection. I love both of these movies, but to get them both in one set was wonderful. They played flawlessly on my player, the quality was excellent, and the movies shine when viewed one after the other. It's a great combination of two great, yet vastly different, movies, and they really go together like only the peanut butter and chocolate of a Reese's. I highly recommend this set to anyone who does not already have both of these. I also want to point out that the Extended Edition of Gladiator has some great scenes cut back into it which go far in explaining some of the scenes you might not truly have understood from the theatrical version of the film. Definitely a must-have for any fan of the Gladiator film.

First thing I look for was the yellow UPC--CHECK

Next I look at the inner ring of the Blu-ray for NAXXXX1B1R2--CHECK

Next I looked for the Title card at the start of the movie--does the word "Gladiator" stays black--CHECK

I know I went over board but I've never seen the original pre remastered copy to compare to and I wanted to be absolutely sure

Someone wrote a review here that they received the older pre remastered copies..TWICE..As far as I know this seems unlikely..There was a problem early on(over a year ago) when they were sending the yellow UPC copies with the older version but this was isolated event and only in Canada. Paramount realized their mistake..Plus, this was long before this double pack was even an idea..

Next--The aspect ration is listed here AND BY PARAMOUNT AS 1.85:1..This is not correct..these are the same versions of the Sapphire Collections that are 2.35:1

The Movies speak for themselves..Great movies..Nothing more to say

The PQ and SQ on both are above standard..

Gladiator could have used SOME light DNR but I think they were afraid to do anything to this after the OVERUSE(I cannot stress this snough) of DNR and EE on the first release..

Paramount messed up with this and really messed up with the re release..almost making it..Making it a Sherlock Holmes-esque mystery to figure out.

REMASTERED ON THE BOX OR EVEN BETTER THE BLU-RAY WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE

I'm sure I'll get a lot of one votes for this but I think this might help some people so I'm writing this review.
