Die Hard gets Blu-ray rework
Fox Home Entertainment has dramatically altered its release plans for the Die Hard series on Blu-ray, and for the better.
Originally the plan was to release the first three Die Hard films as a box set and the new Die Hard 4.0 (Live Free or Die Hard) (Filmstalker review) as a single release.
However Fox Home Entertainment has seen the light and decided to release all the films in a single Die Hard box set as well as releasing them all individually.
The Die Hard Collection is to include all four films, and whether released singularly or in the set they will consist of a BD-50 dual layer disc with 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 and DTS-HD 5.1 audio tracks.
High-Def Digest has the news and the details of the releases, and tells us that the first three films will have all the extras as per the standard disc releases, whereas Die Hard 4.0 (Live Free or Die Hard) will carry all the standard disc release extras with at least one Blu-ray extra.
All sounds good, and the box set looks like it might be US$129.99 and the single releases will be US$39.98.
