Confirmed by Ralph Macchio on his twitter, he is also doing a new commentary on this.

region free do we know?
The vast majority of Sony catalogue titles are. Put it this way, I'd put money on them being coded for all regions.

Want this too but it's a shame they haven't released all 3 as a collection. Had the KK trilogy on dvd but sold a while back when clearing out 90% of my collection.

EDIT: @ Craigy - I thought these weren't out until 11/5 in the states?

Yep, I was surprised when I got the email too.

Good to see very decent transfers for catalogue titles, hope that blu-pop gimmick doesn't spread to other discs, though !

I am so glad the transfer looks good, i will have to order this now; one of my favourites from the 80's. I have the DVD steelbook trilogoy so will just replace my DVD with the BD and keep the steelbook as it looks good :cool:

The Beaver's review is a bit muted:

"The Karate Kid doesn't excel dramatically in terms of detail on the new Blu-ray. I recall discussing how there were some frequently weak film stocks utilized in the mid-80's and this would be a reasonable conclusion in assessing the image quality. It looks fairly good but never stellar. The transfer itself can't be blamed as it's dual-layered with the feature taking up almost 40 Gig of disc space. I don't see the waxiness of DNR - things just look very flat. Colors seem brighter and truer than the previously released SD could relate although it can tend to look blocky at times. In general, Blu-ray expectations-wise this would be considered fairly tame visually but as a representation of the original - I doubt much more could be done."
