Mulholland Drive - Blu-ray:
Menu is mostly English friendly
English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1
Japanese LPCM 2.0
Japanese subtitles (optional)
Studio Canal logo at the start of the movie
Extras:
English Trailer (1:45)

Mulholland Drive DVD - Bonus disc:
Menu is English friendly
Does NOT have the movie on it
All Japanese subtitles are OPTIONAL

Introduction Thierry Jousse (10:14) FRENCH
Dans La Boite Bleue (Inside the blue box) (28:42) some English, mostly FRENCH

Interview:
- Angelo Badalamenti (35:39) English only
- Mary Sweeney (20:59) FRENCH only

...and I'm done. It seems quite obviously all the bonus features for this one were originally Studio Canal bonus features and were simply ported over.

I'm impressed that all the discs are at least mostly English friendly and that all subtitles seem to be optional except for a tiny few.
It's a real shame that it doesn't have all the shorts. Especially not including Rabbits is just sad. They included so many extra features, why not Rabbits too?

Sorry if this has been mentioned, but is Mulholland Drive the latest remastered transfer or the older one that was out on the first Studiocanal collection release?

I wrote a PM yesterday if you know a way how to identify the transfers.
I have not yet received any answer.

I don't even know which releases you are talking about. French ones?
There were 2 standalone Blu-ray releases in Japan. One by Pony Canyon, which was the old release.
And a second time by Kadokawa Entertainment, which is the same publisher as the one, who released this box set here.
And at least on blu-ray.com that second standalone release is called "4K Remastered Version". This is surely also the one included in this box set.

If you can get me some data of the other releases like for example different durations, I can see if I can identify it that way.
It looks as if it's the most recent one.

It's very weird that the bonus material was put on a DVD. The interview with Angelo Badalament is way longer on this set compared to even BOTH French releases.
The one released by Studio Canal in France is 16:46 according to dvdcompare. The other one is 16:45 including an audio only (?) interview that lasts 16:30. I'm pretty sure that the interview on this one is 35:39 all-video.
The Mary Sweeney interview is 17:16 (and called "New") on the French Studio Canal set, while it's 20:59 on this set.
Strangely other extras from that release are not included on this disc.
The interview with Naomi Watts & David Lynch is missing on this one (I can take a second look just in case). "On the Road to Mulholland Drive" and "Back to Mulholland Drive" are both also missing.

What's also strange is that none of the releases in France has the trailer (at least it's not mentioned on dvdcompare), while this Japanese release has it.

Same here, i'm very curious about the transfers. Twin peaks fire walk with me I'm hoping is the new 4k transfer.
I find it hard to get info on this set.

For that one (standalone release) blu-ray.com also says "4k remastered version".
I don't own a PC Blu-ray drive, so I can't check stats of the disc.

In that case it will contain the new digitally restored 4K transfer, which is a nice bonus aside from the extended extras you mention. A longer interview with Badalamenti is also a huge plus for me, as I love both his score for the movie and he steals the movie with that board room scene.

The different releases are on caps-a-holic, I wish I could offer some point of reference as I don't own the new 4K transfer yet, making this boxset very tempting to own.

Don't forget though - the whole set is Region A locked.

Will look into caps-a-holic. Still I guess it will get a bit difficult, because I can't capture stills, so comparing them will probably be difficult.

I personally already own Mulholland Drive various times, but not any European 2017 releases.
I own right now:
- UK Steelbook (2014)
- UK digibook (2010)
- German collection box set (2011, also including Inland Empire plus Lost Highway)

I have a region free blu-ray player, thanks for the heads up. Like you, I also own the UK digibook which is actually a nice package. I held up from getting the new UK release due to the issues with certain blu-ray players have with that release, so have been meaning to get a different country release.

Which one do you have? Did you buy it modified?
How much was it?
Right now my European BD player is region locked, well region free for DVD thanks to the magic IR region free code (it's a Sony).
I imported a PS3 from Japan ages ago, which is why I can play region A BDs.

Wow, I did not know about that.
Insane that there was no replacement program.
Quality control these days...

A Pioneer BDP-150 which I bought on ebay for about 70 $ couple of years ago and while the seller advertised it as region free, it was not. I had to reinstall the firmware myself after researching online how to do it and it has worked since. You have to go to the player settings to adjust the region code setting in a hidden menu.

It seems there are players that can have issues with the 2017 UK blu-ray release skipping, if you check the UK thread it provides plenty of examples.
