Rumours had already spread and were discussed on the German Cinefacts forums: 20th Century Fox will release a remastered version of TGBU in 2014. They confirmed it yesterday when they replied to a question posed by a user:


So, what do you think of this? Will we finally get a decent BluRay of this movie??
I'm thinking about asking via Facebook if it is possible to include fans in this project in order to assist them on some things that had been wrong in previous editions... What do you think?

UPDATE:
Fox wrote at Film-Insider:
"Zu Rocky liegen noch keine weiteren Informationen vor. Bisher ist nur bekannt, dass es einen neuen Transfer geben wird, mehr wissen wir leider noch nicht. Gleiches gilt auch fr die Glorreichen Halunken."
("There is no further information regarding Rocky. The only thing that is known by now that there will be a new transfer, we don't know more yet, unfortunately. The same is true for The Good, The Bad And The Ugly.")

Awesome news. Along with a beautiful transfer, I'd definitely recommend some seamless branching options.

This IS good news, but doesn't speak to whether or not there will be a U.S. release for this master. I'm hoping for a Criterion edition.

If MGM/Fox masters this film again I see no reason why they shouldn't release it worldwide again.

Question is what they do in that case with the audio options. And with the cave scene.

In a perfect world they would release all versions in one set. Some kind of Special Platinum Extra Gold Titanium Edition

I've been thinking about this and there are so many ways they can mess up this release.

Ultimately, I hope they abandon the extended version. That will increase our chances of getting the original English mono soundtrack.

I believe most feel that the already technology exists (for several years now) to offer as (1) original US release, (2) with the additional scenes added in (except the cave scene), and (3) the entire "restored version" with the cave scene, so viewer could simply chose one of those options with the DVD remote control.  And maybe with a choice of original or modified audio.

But the real goal should be to get it right.

depp91,

Can you ask 20th Century Fox Deutschland if this remastered release will include the International or extended version? Or both?

So far they have only announced that they are willing to release it again next year if they think there is enough interest. So there is a chance they will take in consideration every point of critic which was uttered constantly in the last years.

It would be clever to make a deal with the Italians and to remaster it together by using all elements which belong in the film. But, are they clever ?

...and what about a 3d version


Personally from time to time, I like to watch the old grainy version from my old VHS.



Some people still prefer to listen to vinyl, than mp3s.  Grin

Then we should let them know there is significant interest by barraging those message boards with posts, and sending them letters, emails, and phone calls....

It sounds like The Gaumont la demande series.

The lack of the mono is still a major dealbraker for me Sad. Evidently, outside of the old SD DVD theatrical version, there's never been a version of this with the original mono. The downmix is almost more insulting than not including it at all. How foolish does Fox think that fans are? The definitive movie of the whole genre, and no proper release? What a crushing disappointment. It's the Drunken Master II of Spaghetti Westerns. Sigh.
