United Kingdom The Prisoner (1967): UK, September 21

I'd already mentioned a French edition coming up.

It seems there'll be also a British release. It's already up for preorder on amazon UK.

Dear god. You just made my year, Grubert. SWEET.

I'm seeing a number of UK DVD industry folk tomorrow, see if I can track down anything more on this.

I am very happy about this. Any chance we will see an American release? A&E has not been that aggressive with its properties on Blu-ray.

And they have been rather high priced too.

I am shocked that this is getting the blu-ray treatment, but very happy about it.

Hopefully there will be a North American release, as with the DVDs, or it will be region free.

Update:

The set is back on track for September 21 release.

(I've edited the title to reflect the new date).

The US blu release is set for October, so I imagine the UK will get it too as it originated from there.

Amazon.UK simply has not put up the new pre-order info for the Blu-ray release. The date I noted above is correct.

I'm skeptical about that listing. Amazon.uk had the BD set listed before. I went to Network's site, and it wasn't listed. I e-mailed Network, and the reply was that they are working on the set, but no details were available yet (I had specifically asked about release date and region coding).

I just looked at the new Amazon.uk listing, then went to Network's site. It's still not listed there.

I hope it's not another f***up. I just sold my DVD set in anticipation of buying the Blu since Amazon had it listed. I knew about the first UK release being pulled from the Amazon UK some months ago, but figured this was the real deal this time here in America.

Nice packaging. Fans of The Prisoner might like to know Factory Replicas have secured a licence to make merchandise and prop replicas for the upcoming series and the original. Items should be on sale in late 2009/early 2010 but no details of exactly what. I suspect there'll be a diecast KAR120C.

Thanks for the update, Pro-B. I, too, had found confirmation on the Six of One page, but forgot to post it here.

That's a strange shape for the box.

I wonder if any of those extras will also be in HD.

5.1 sound mix?...I'm a bit leery about that, but will reserve judgment. Other classic titles sound very good (like Star Trek) w/ a 5.1 mix.

BCNU,
Doug

Hello Doug,

I would try to contact the agent for this title next week to confirm all of the specs.
