Found this out earlier today! As a massive Kubrick fan I am just a tad excited. I already have the original R1 DVD boxset that came out before the R2 but the general opinion was the R1 set was pretty poor picture quality, oh and didn't include the excellent "Life in Pictures" documentary. The chance to own these film in remastered HD is good but they are also loaded with extras. Commentries on all of them and lots of new/unseen extras. Not exactly sure when the UK will get them, October too? I knew Stanley Kubrick would never have done a commentary if he were alive today so these are extremley good news. I have put a link below, scroll down a bit for the details. http://www2.warnerbros.com/web/corpcomm/press_release.jsp?id=WHVDirectorsSeriesStanleyKubrick Need to go off and buy a HD-DVD player now.
