So whatever you thought of the transfer, read this....

The Digital Bits, quoting industry sources, is reporting that Paramount Home Entertainment, in cooperation with Universal Studios Home Entertainmment, will re-issue Gladiator on Blu-ray later this year, using a brand-new 1080p transfer that was just completed "a couple of months ago." Bill Hunt says this was done "after Paramount and Universal realized how bad the first one was, naturally."

Again according to the Bits' sources, the studio plans to schedule this Blu-ray rerelease for late summer or fall, to coincide with either the theatrical or (more probably) the home video release of Ridley Scott's Robin Hood, and possibly labeled as a 10th Anniversary Edition.

There is no information as to whether there will be an exchange program for the first edition of this title. There is no information either of a rerelease in other territories.

well surely they must know you can only fool some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time, so therefore amazon should preview before they offer such for sale instead of just relying on the hype etc because in the long run such is not good for business is it ?

How so? No one holds Amazon responsible for the quality of the products. You blame the manufacturer, right.

Plus, how would a regular Joe Bloggs be able to differentiate between fantastic and only reasonable on blu ray? You have to quite extensively watch things like Life, Zulu, etc, to be able to make the distinction.

I don't think stocking sub-par products hurts Amazon at all. It hurts the people who make them.

A lot of people are crying out for an part exchange on the original US Sapphire release on that forum. They can only blame themselves for not paying attention to the negative review on the site they are members of. Still I feel sorry for the average joe who bought the original (apparently disappointing release) . I wonder how brilliant this new transfer is. I'll wait and see what Blu-ray.com say. Having said that, I'm not gonna wait for a 15th anniversary, I bloody love the movie.
