The good news is that finally the nine remaining James Bond films not on Blu-ray will be making the jump this Fall to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the franchise. The bad news is you’ll have to buy a complete box-set to get them.
MGM announced the plans today during the annual Consumer Electronics Show. The box-set will run the entire official gamut from “Dr. No” to “Quantum of Solace”. More importantly we’ll finally get “You Only Live Twice,” “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service,” “Diamonds Are Forever,” “The Spy Who Loved Me,” “Octopussy,” “A View To A Kill,” “The Living Daylights,” “GoldenEye” and “Tomorrow Never Dies” for the first time in HD.
No word on those unreleased titles getting separate disc releases. It’ll happen but it likely won’t be until well into 2012 (my guess is around the time that “Skyfall” hits Blu). EON also confirmed Thomas Newman’s involvement as composer on “Skyfall” in a press release.
