Looks like Die Hard's 1-3 will only be available in the box set with Die Hard 4.0 available seperately on Blu-Ray.

Fox has not yet provided a specific breakdown of the supplements on the 'Die Hard Trilogy' set, other than that it should mirror the previous collection issued on standard-def DVD, which included multiple commentaries, featurettes, deleted scenes and more for each movie.

Retail is $39.98 for 'Live Free or Die Hard,' and $99.98 for the 'Die Hard Trilogy.'

As of now, the three films in the 'Die Hard Trilogy' will not be made available separately, nor will there be a four-pack that includes 'Live Free or Die Hard.'

Fair enough not releasing the first 3 outside of the set, but why not just do a complete set of 4 :confused:

Will pick up all of these :thumbsup:

Agreed. I was looking forward to a four film boxset and don't really understand why there isn't one. It's going to be a very expensive run up to Christmas (and that's not including the girlfriend's present. I'm sure she'd love some Blu-Rays :rotfl: :suicide: )

Die Hard 4.0 was good ... but not great.

It was no way near the quality of Die Hard 1 ... but should suit the HD format VERY well.

Fox Home Entertainment has revealed that the Blu-ray version of 'Live Free or Die Hard' will be delivered in the PG-13 rated form. In the ultimate head-scratcher, the Fox Blu-ray website shows a cover for the title which says "Unrated". We have contacted Fox to get some clarification, but for now it looks like Blu-ray fans will be neglected by the studio this fall.

I am completely at a loss as to why Fox would release an unrated cut on standard DVD but not on BR - I just hope that the press release was a mistake and that the box cover on the FoxBR website is correct.

If it is going to be the PG 13 cut I think I will go with the unrated DVD and no get the BR:eek: - which is a shame as I really liked the movie and it would look great on BR

Fox madness!!

If Die Hard 4 is going to be the PG version then I'm quite glad this won't be in the box set.

Fox seem to give with the one hand then take with the other.

From the MPAA

"Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, language and a brief sexual situation."

Couldnt find out exactly what the differences were, other than Yippee Ki Yay :censored: had the last bit censored by a gunshot, although I still heard in the cinema.

Do we know if the UK version was cut or not? If so I might opt for Region B for this release.

It was passed with no cuts according th the BBFC website, but I should imagine this is as the version submitted was the same as the US PG-13. States the film Running time as 128 mins & 37 seconds, looks like the US unrated is 130 mins.

original trilogy all the way, proper action! the new one was good but all the talk of the "pg-13 rating being pushed to the limit" was crap. Unless they shot every scene with Mclane twice, one pg-13 and the other full of language I wouldn't hold much hope of the unrated being too different. Id expect Yipee ki yay to be in and maybe some blood splatters.

No idea on the status of the cut on 4.0 in Japan (same as everywhere else I guess if were going for wider audience), but they are getting a Quadrilogy set with all 4 films.
