Is anyone else expecting them to release an Ultimate Edition Box Set of the entire franchise to include everything from each individual Ultimate Edition and more? They've done the same thing with Lord of the Rings and other franchises. My guess is that it will appear sometime next year.
You could wait until Warner Bros. releases an Ultimate edition or you can pay amazon.co.uk a visit. If you do not mind waiting another 3-4 weeks and the substitution of "philosopher's stone" instead of "sorcerer's stone", then check out this ultimate [region-free] package. My cart reflects a price of 58.91 British pounds ($90.79 USD) at checkout. This is lower than the 66.99 British Pounds price on the product page. The shipping is about 3.00 British Pounds.
For those interested in Blu-Ray 3D of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part 2 see: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00512WO9M/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE or even the Blu-Ray 3D of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part 1 (yes, they did finish it) see: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Potter-Deathly-Hallows-Blu-ray-Region/dp/B005GKYRFS/ref=pd_sim_d_h_2
Unfortunately, it looks like we were victimized by another Warner Bros. exclusivity deal with a major 3D HDTV manufacturer.
Yes. Both the books and films have different lines for the US and the rest of the world. Rowling is said to have later regretted allowing the US version of the book to be dumbed-down to "Sorceror's" from "Philosopher's". Apparently her American editor told her Americans wouldn't understand what "philosopher" meant as opposed to the more easily-identifiable "sorceror"... Stupid if you ask me.
Why haven't they upgraded the audio on the first 5 movies? Number 6 is DTS-HD and 7 is DTS-MASTER.They need to upgrade before i buy the box set.I think the ultimate bluray's where upgraded so why dont they do all new bluray's in the better audio.I couldn't see cost being an issue when they have made billions of dollars on this franchise.
"Hard-core Potter fans will be pleased to know that 2011 is not the end of the Harry. Potter film franchise on DVD and Blu-ray. Warner Home Video plans to release a comprehensive Harry Potter film collection, with even more extras and collectible premiums in 2012. More details about the collection will be available at a later date."
According to the product description, the blu-rays are region free, but the dvds are region 2. In a related forum on the site, customers report that both amazon uk and warner bothers report that the dvds are also region free. What to believe...?
