Way too many films by WB not even released yet (example Hooper) to worry about a better presentation of a film that (I personally like) but was a bomb in 1981 and only found it's audience through cable TV in the early 80's.
BD Wantlist: 1. Le Samouraï 2. Ikiru 3. Nights of Cabiria 4. La Strada 5. The Burbs 6. Murder By Death 7. Hooper 8. The Abyss 9. True Lies 10. The Little Princess 11. Love Affair (1994) 12. Into the Night 13. The Remains of the Day 14. The Gumball Rally 15. The Magnificent Ambersons 16. Urban Cowboy 17. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance 18. Blame it on Rio 19. Under the Rainbow 20. The Pirate Movie

I love Excalibur. One of my all-time favorites. But it is time to face facts...WB will only due the bare minimum, because this title doesn't make them much money. You think they care? Look at some of their "classics" on blu that make them money, yet they still rerelease the same pre-2006 masters and lossy audio versions of those films.
Release the Permium Collection digibook that Eurpoe got, and I'd wager this would be a pretty decent seller.

It was a bomb? It made $34,967,437 domestic.

This needs to happen. This film is such a classic and it got a sorry first release on blu. I'll buy a proper restoration in a heartbeat.
Samsung UN55F6400 TV
Sony STR-DN1000 Receiver
Klipsch KB-15 Icon & Quintet III Speakers/350w SUB
LG BP125 Blu-ray Player
XBOX One + 360 Slim

It's ok if we have different opinions. It really is.

It's exactly the same around the world as far as PQ and AQ goes. Maybe one day we will get a new master in the proper ratio of 1.66:1.

Ok bomb was a little harsh but take a look at my example. Hooper 78 Million dollars, at the height of Burt Reynolds popularity right after Smokey and the Bandit. Yet we have not even seen a "Widsescreen 16x9" DVD release let alone a BD release. I think what we have with Excalibur is fine until other catalog films can at least see the light of day. That's all I was sayin...

Thank you, then no need to grab that Digibook, I will just stick with my US version until something better.

Thanks again

No problem, but I wouldn't hold my breath since this is Warner.
