Now THIS is what would convince me to finally buy a blu-ray player…
The British Film Board announced that they have approved 84 minutes of extras for The Godfather Trilogy remastered DVD collection, dated 2008.
No more details are available (and Paramount has not formally announced this release) BUT I’m pretty confident we will see another release of these films on DVD and POSSIBLY blu-ray this year (just in time for Christmas I assume).
I have all on DVD (yes, even the third one) and, while the transfers look pretty good to me, I can see many opportunities to remaster the picture and sound (if only they could “remaster” Sophia Coppola out of the last movie, or James Caan’s really bad stunt punching out of the first one).
If this comes out then count me in.
It’s nothing personal. It’s strictly business.
