Default Citizen Kane 70th Anniversary) Pre-Order Is Up!

http://bluray.highdefdigest.com/3350/citizenkane.html
no date yet, but looks like a great package.

http://bluray.highdefdigest.com/5216...gnificent.html
notice Welles' classic "The Magnificent Ambersons" is coming with this set on dvd only.
(that film has never been released on dvd in NA; there is a Universal dvd in region 2)
This second edition is exclusive to Amazon.

Wow- so this set actually has three feature films in it, only one of them actually on Blu-ray.

Does anyone yet know exactly how this particular package differs from the non-Amazon-exclusive variant(s)?

Whatever Amazon may want you to believe, Citizen Kane is not an Amazon exclusive- this particular package is.

I'd love to pay that price if Ambersons was on Blu-ray, as well. I'm glad it's finally seeing release on 5" disc, but come on! I'm not expecting any special remastering/clean-up effort, but give us HD fer chrissakes.

I'm actually most excited about The Magnificent Ambersons being released, but I kind of which it was on Blu-ray too, but who cares...it is about time it got a proper release. I consider it Welles' best film.
