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 für 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.")

A Fistful of Dollars / Universum BluRay (Germany 2013)
« on: February 22, 2013, 12:20:03 PM »
I haven't received it yet, but here's some stuff I have found out about it:

It is based upon the superior Italian restoration of the movie.
MGM BD: http://images3.static-bluray.com/reviews/2898_6_1080p.jpg
Universum BD: http://screenshotcomparison.com/images/1361470634_2604783951.jpg
But the German BD is said to be darker and more reddish than the Italian counterpart.

Confirmation:

Italian BD: http://s14.directupload.net/images/130213/6sqfa8rs.png

The main titles are in German:

Apart from the well-known MGM bonus features, it contains an interview with Morricone, an Italian featurette about the restoration (possibly dubbed in German, don't know exactly), and featurettes about the locations where it was shot.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Italian version vs. MGM cut
« on: June 11, 2012, 12:36:51 AM »
Hello guys!
This is my first post on this forum, but I've read the discussions on this forum for quite some time now:)

Yesterday I ordered this Italian Sergio Leone BluRay Boxset online:
http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Sergio-Leone-Collection-Blu-ray/21788/

I know that these releases are not English-friendly, but what the hell, I had to get these movies (GBU especially) in decent quality!


Now I've read on this forum that there are several differences between this Italian version and the restored MGM version. I'll list those that I know here, but I'd like to ask you to add other differences which I might have forgotten or don't know about:)


Differences between the restored MGM cut and the Italian BluRay release:
- The "Il Grotto" scene is exclusive to the MGM cut
- The torture sequence is missing a reaction shot of Angel Eyes on the Italian BD
- Finale of "The Trio" is slowed down and contains a wailing horn on the 5.1 mix of the Italian BD
- "Sorry, Tuco" scene is missing on the Italian BD
- Different shots of Tuco screaming "You dirty son of a ..."


Are there more differences? Especially concerning the torture sequence!
