Well that was released by a different studio I believe so would have to be done by a different publisher

A) not an official Bond movie and B) a remake of Thunderball, so no, it has nothing to do with this collection!

Never Say Never Again has been released for some considerable time but strictly region A only. I have recently noticed a re-release is now available in a combo pack of DVD and Blu-Ray (Region A)
I have been waiting desperately for the release of this in Region B (I'm from Australia).

Yes - Never Say Never Again was produced by another Film Studio (not AON production as was the rest).
Within Australia we consider that this film was a genuine James Bond and was actually released for showing in the Theatres
at the same time as another AON Bond (can't remember which one though) - believe me it was quite a strange feeling at the time to have a choice.

It's actually "EON" (which stands for Everything or Nothing) Productions... but that's not my main point.

Never Say Never Again was released in 1983 which was the same year in which official Bond film Octopussy was released. In a good number of countries Octopussy was a summer release whereas NSNA was a winter release. It's true that Australia saw them released in November and December, respectively, but anyone who was familiar with the official Bond series should have easily been able to differentiate between the two and see the key differences in NSNA such as no gunbarrel and no James Bond theme.

It's still unfortunate that only the US has apparently seen the release of NSNA... it has some fun bits. I don't think it should or ever will be released with the official Bond films, though.

I agree with Emmitt. Much as I prefered NSNA to Thunderball if I'm completely honest it doesn't flow with the 22 MAIN Bond films. But don't be to suprised if there happens to be a double set of NSNA with the 69 Casino Royale on Blu Ray around the same time this is due out

Are people still going on about this?

Never Say Never again isn't canon. It's not part of the established Bond series any more than the Woody Allen film so stop complaining about it, sheesh

Who cares if it's canon or not? Some people like it, and we're complaining that it hasn't come out on Blu-ray at all outside of the States. The fact that it isn't 'official' is irrelevant.

Yes it would be good to see it on bluray in the UK. My DVD of NSNA says MGM on it, same as the new bluray set so why not issue it now separately?

But the U.S. Blu-ray of NSNA takes great pains to hide its MGM connections. The only studio logo on the package is Fox (MGM's distributor); the studio logo in the film is of Orion (NSNA's original distributor), but from after MGM bought them. It's MGM, but *not* EON; EON won't let it be included with their films.

EON doesn't allow the 1966/67 spoof version of Casino Royale either, even though Danjaq (i.e., EON) is now a co-owner of that version as a result of the deal that got them the rights to make CR 2006. (Two versions of the same story is also an issue for NSNA because it's officially a remake of Thunderball.)
