Not quite. What Scream has apparently said is that their current license agreement only applies to including the films in the boxed set.

That has nothing to do with what other license agreements could be entered into in the future.

Unless one has access to the licensing agreements Miramax has drawn up with Lionsgate and Anchor Bay/Scream respectively, there's no way to know what the terms are, and certainly no way to know whether Lionsgate already has exclusive licensing rights to stand-alone special editions.

I understand emphasizing the boxed-set exclusivity right now. There's no way Anchor Bay and Scream would put out a big boxed set, and then immediately even imply the possibility that the majority of the "new" stuff exclusive to the boxed set (the stuff that many folks are primarily buying the boxed set for) might be released on its own in a year or two.

It has been said the films are very expensive to license. But I would tend to doubt that Miramax would simply deny Anchor Bay and Scream if they wanted to pay enough money to do a new license for stand-alone releases. It would be easy money for everybody. Most (if not all) of the work is already done. They would just need to repackage the things.

Does anyone think Lionsgate is going to do their own special edition with all new, independently-produced special features? They could essentially license back all of Anchor Bay and Scream's special features. But simply reissuing the cheapie Echo Bridge BD tells me Lionsgate and Miramax don't have a huge interest in any of this. It would be much easier to simply issue a license to Anchor Bay/Scream to do standalone releases.

Any Anchor Bay/Scream release wouldn't even particularly be competing with the barebones Lionsgate release of the films, as those are always going to be infinitely cheaper.

Don't forget the new commentary as well. I would have understood if it was 10 years later and they released a better edition but to release the 35th anniversary edition and then not long after release a better version in a box set is pretty annoying. That's basically giving a big "screw you" to those who bought the digibook. This will just make me hold off in the future before buying anything.

So is the book that comes in the cased version smaller than the digibook one?

I don't think the movie can look much better on standard blu ray. I won't even think about an upgrade until the actual 4k format comes along.

I compared the 2007 version with this version on my 55" the other day...the 35th blows the 2007 out of the water in every way. It has beautiful grain structure and the color timing is so fall like. It's like watching it again for the first time.
