Rencontres du 3e type

Post by Mister Zob »

Selon USA Today, ça serait pour le 13 novembre :
Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)

Nov. 13

Details: Close Encounters of the Third Kind: 30th Anniversary Ultimate Edition (DVD, $40; Blu-ray Disc, $50). Includes three versions of the film: the 1977 original theatrical cut, the re-edited 1980 theatrical special edition, and Steven Spielberg's director's cut, released in 1998.

Why it's important: It's the first time a Spielberg movie has been issued on high-definition disc, and it's the first home video release of all three versions

What's new: An interview with Spielberg created especially for this release and a retrospective documentary.

Plus: Only on the 50 GB Blu-ray edition are new "storyboard-to-scene" comparisons and the original 1977 "Watch the Skies" featurette. Blu-ray, says David Bishop, president of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, "will add yet another new and thrilling dimension to this timeless film."

Ajout de la news DVD Times :

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced the US Blu-ray Disc release of Close Encounters of the Third Kind: 30th Anniversary Ultimate Edition on 13th November 2007 priced at $49.95 SRP. Celebrating the 30th anniversary of Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi classic this set incorporates all three versions of the film, including the first-ever home video release of the 1977 Original Theatrical edition, as well as the re-edited 1980 theatrical Special Edition and Spielberg’s definitive Director’s Cut (released in 1998 as the Collector’s Edition). Bonus material on the 30th Anniversary Ultimate Edition includes a never-before-seen interview with Spielberg created specifically for this release, a retrospective documentary and more.

A legendary film, Close Encounters of the Third Kind was nominated for eight Academy Awards. Richard Dreyfuss (Jaws) has the starring role of electrical lineman Roy Neary, as he sets out to investigate a mysterious power outage and experiences a life-changing “close encounter.”

The Original Theatrical version of Close Encounters of the Third Kind was released on screens in 1977 and was never available on home video. Spielberg released a re-edited Special Edition theatrically and on VHS in 1980 wherein he deleted several smaller scenes and added other sequences including scenes of Dreyfuss inside the alien mother ship at the end of the film. In 1998, the Collector’s Edition was released on home video with a limited theatrical run and featured Spielberg’s definitive director’s cut with changes, some small and subtle, as well as a change eliminating the interior mother ship scenes from the end of the Special Edition, thus restoring the original ending. The Close Encounters of the Third Kind: 30th Anniversary Ultimate Edition is the first collection to include all three versions of the film.

The first classic Spielberg film ever to be released on a pre-recorded high definition disc format, the Blu-ray release provides for all three versions of Close Encounters of the Third Kind to be included on one 50GB disc through a process known as “seamless branching,” made possible with the added interactivity of Blu-ray’s software and the robust processing power of the second generation players. This process identifies the differences between each version of the film and segments the footage accordingly. These segments are then encoded and assembled into three unique playlists, thus allowing footage used in all three films to be included on the Blu-ray disc only once. Based on the viewer’s selection of the Original Version, Special Edition or definitive Director’s Cut, each film will be presented seamlessly in its original form by use of its respective playlist.

That sounds a lot like the seamless branching we see on DVD, but the Blu-ray Disc release does offer some additional extras not found on the day-and-date DVD release courtesy of a second disc…

* All New Interview with Steven Spielberg on Close Encounters of the Third Kind
* All New “Storyboard to Scene Comparisons” (Blu-ray Exclusive)
* Close Encounters of the Third Kind Retrospective Documentary
* The Original 1977 “Watch the Skies” Featurette (Blu-ray Exclusive)
* Original Theatrical Preview (Blu-ray Exclusive)

Faut relativiser !
50$ en SRP, ça fait du 35$ sur Pacific... donc moins de 30€ port inclus. :mrgreen:

Les trois versions seront proposées sur un seul BD50 avec le procédé seamless branching.
Through a process known as “seamless branching,” the Blu-ray version contains all three films on a single disc.

après le labyrinthe de Pan (50 euros) et Blade Runner (annoncé à 100$), on continue sur les prix délirants...

à croire qu'on revit l'époque du laserdisc...

d'ailleurs, je me demande si on en prend pas le chemin...

Je ne sais pas. Pour la 257e fois depuis 5 ans, je te conseillerais bien de le voir, mais tu risques de me juger maniaco-depressif.

disons qu'il a pris un sacré coup de vieux. tout comme ET d'ailleurs.

Un film comme Starman vieillit beaucoup mieux je trouve avec le temps...

à propos, que fait ce film de 1977 dans la section naphtalinée?
