Default Ben-Hur and Citizen Kane coming in 2011

Fox announced that BEN HUR will be on blu ray... Was wondering if Ben-Hur 1933 and others will be packaged with 1963 version blu as well?

I think FOX should becasue they had BEN HUR with several discs collection.

I can not wait!!

The 1925 version is really incredible. Both the '25 and '59 versions are wonderful. But I think that the '25 version is more lavish because of the expanse and knowing the limited special effects at the time. That makes it all the more visually stunning knowing that everything is built to full scale!

I hope that they port over all of the extras from the most recent SDVD release and put both movies in 1080p.

This is one of my all time favorite movies. In fact, I'm looking more forward to Ben-Hur than LOA or any other catalog title that has been announced.

I'm sure both versions of Ben-Hur will look stunning on BD. Another classic epic I would love to see on BD is Lawrence of Arabia. I saw it on HDNet Movies recently and it looks phenominal imagine how it would look on Blu-ray. Hopefully Sony gives it the BD treatment packed full of special features.

Yes, it will be a while (at least a year) before LOA will come out. Read the insider's threads and you'll get more information.

I agree here. The 1925 Ben Hur had 125,000 costumed actors and extras! Who does that now? Now they just use computers. The sets were amazing. For special effects, there were some very convincing glass shots, too. I wonder how they will hold up to close inspection on Blu-ray.

Well, it depends on who you ask...I mean LOTR was heralded to have used "everyone in New Zealand".

Ben-Hur is one of my top "wish list" items. This one REALLY needs Hi-Def, since even on my 46" Sony the ultra-wide ratio reduces the image size significantly from most standard wide-screen movies. I'm also hoping the 1925 version is included; it's a different but still wonderful movie experience.

Silent movies rock...and I'm looking forward to seeing flicks like:

Metropolis
Greed
Gance's Napoleon
Phantom of the Opera

...on BR. I'm sure they'll look incredible!

I'd love to see a mix of pillarbox/widescreen on the Napoleon set for the finale. And the brilliance of the Phantom Technicolor sequence will be amazing.
