Fan art on both but the Blu-ray cover is very well done. In the second one, the zero in "of" is capitalized which makes the 007 logo look odd.

The DVD cover is assuredly fan art, but that Blu-ray cover is interesting. I'm quite a fan of it.

I'm sorry mate, but they're not the official ones, you can tell by the Aston Martin image used on the Blu-Ray one and the weird logo on the Widescreen one.

Very good ones though!

Quantum of Solace Hits DVD & Blu-ray in March

Source: Twentieth Century Fox January 13, 2009

MGM and Fox Home Entertainment have announced that Quantum of Solace will be released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in March. The full press release:

The high-octane action of the world's most famous secret agent continues when QUANTUM OF SOLACE explodes onto Blu-ray Disc and DVD this March from MGM and Fox Home Entertainment.

A worldwide box office phenomenon, QUANTUM OF SOLACE has broken countless records and scored among the top 20 film openings of all time in 67 international territories. Bond... James Bond remains one of the world's largest and most successful film franchises with 22 films to date.

Starting shortly after Casino Royale ends, Daniel Craig returns as James Bond, betrayed by the woman he loved and determined to find those responsible for her death. His pursuit and determination lead him deeper into the criminal organization known as "Quantum" and into the company of Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), an environmentalist using his wealth and power to help overthrow a government in exchange for a barren piece of desert land that will allow him to control the country's water supply. Forced to work without the help of MI6, Bond partners with Camille (Olga Kurylenko), a young woman on her own quest for justice, and together they travel across the globe in order to stop Greene and seek retribution.

The 22nd film in the James Bond franchise, QUANTUM OF SOLACE features many familiar faces from 2006's Casino Royale including Academy Award®* winner Dame Judi Dench as Bond's closest confidant, M; Giancarlo Giannini as René Mathis; and Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter. The Blu-ray Disc and two-disc Special Edition DVD contains special features including behind-the-scenes featurettes, crew files, plus a music video for "Another Way to Die" featuring Jack White and Alicia Keys.

*1999; Best Actress in a Supporting Role; Shakespeare in Love

Daniel Craig returns as James Bond in this thrilling, action-packed adventure which starts shortly after Casino Royale ends.

On a nonstop quest for justice that crisscrosses the globe, Bond meets the beautiful but feisty Camille (Olga Kurylenko), who leads him to Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), a ruthless businessman and major force within the mysterious "Quantum" organization. When Bond uncovers a conspiracy to take control of one of the world’s most important natural resources, he must navigate a minefield of treachery, deception and murder to neutralize "Quantum" before it's too late!

With pain or joy? The Blu-Ray one is rather nice, the DVD one is ghastly.

No commentary, so a double-dip is all but inevitable. But if it's as swanky a release as the new Casino Royale discs, I suppose I can't complain.

I must have missed the fact that we were "promised" the alternate ending. :(

If we get to see it at all, it'll be on the 3-disc Extra Special edition.

You really think they'll be a double dip? MGM and Fox are in charge now. Sony is out.

But, I hope you're right.

I believe it has already been announced that the 2nd wave will hit the same day. IT is going to be an expensive day!

As has been said, a second edition is bound to follow. A shame, but them's the breaks. It's not a rip-off any more than the price coming down after a few months on the market. You pay to own it early, or you wait.

I'll get the one-disc DVD now, the 3 disc when it shows up. I'd pay 13 quid to 'long term lease' QoS for two years, since it'll get watched a lot and I'll take a lot of pleasure in it. That's that.

I guess that answers my question!

Do we really get the DVD first here in Australia? I suppose it would make up for waiting longer for the movie in cinemas.

First one is easily fake, simply cause it has a Fox logo on the spine (even though Fox now handles MGM releases, they still only put the MGM logo on the case, except on the back). Now, for the second set, the BD only looks good, but the DVD is easily fake, because the logo doesn't look right, and it announces the actors names underneath the title in a similar typeface (with all the Bond films, except for DAD, the only actor listed on the front of the case is the actor playing Bond and in a simple byline at the top).

As for the specs of the releases, like the movie itself, seems a bit disappointing. Like, no commentary? no deleated scenes? just some basic featurettes, a music video, and the trailer? And I really was hoping, cause it's technically Fox (releasing for MGM) that we would get a digital copy for our ipods and such (guess they want us to illegally download it if we want a copy for our ipods). I can already smell a special edition when the next film arrives in theatres fall 2010 (or spring 2011).

Exactly. Ultimately, the price of a DVD (if you seek out the bargains) is equivalent to seeing it one time in a theater. And you can always trade in the old DVD when a the new one arrives. I'll pay to have one fast. Then I'll pay to have a super-duper edition later on. In the end, I will have paid less out of pocket than I did to see the movie on opening night. It's not a big deal.

Some of us may not want to hear what Forster has to say.


And some of us would. After all, no one would FORCE you to listen to the commentary if you don't want to.

At least we have confirmed dates now. I’m sure there will be re-releases in the future. To be honest, all I really want is the film itself in high definition. That’s the main thing. It still doesn’t make up for waiting to see the film while other countries had seen it, but it’s good to see Australia get the earliest DVD release.

I'll definitely wait for the second edition to buy it, in BD. But now I have doubts about whether buy this first edition in the 2-disc edition DVD or in the single disc one.

Actually, perhaps I wouldn't even buy the (potential) second edition if it wasn't for the possibility of further documentaries about filming in location, 'cause my country was one of those locations.

We all knew a double dip (& more) was coming so I've already gotten over it. At least they got the trailers on this one. :( It will be great to see this in high def at home.
