Classic.

Great news.

I'm hoping it's the digipak version. I liked the Bonnie & Clyde Turned out.

I'm a sucker for marketing.

I hope it's the coffee table book edition as well, they are way cooler than the regular blue plastic boxes.

Bonnie & Clyde and this film really do go hand-in-hand as two of the early classic examples of the late-60s/early 70s maverick cinema taking over the industry. I will be absolutely stunned if this is not a coffee table book. By the way, I don't have enough Blu-rays to fill up my whole shelf (yet), so I like how you can stand these movies up like books and display them. Hoping for excellen coverart to have out on display. But more than that, I hope the PQ and AQ are on par with Bonnie & Clyde. I was not a fan of the quality of the old Warner snapper disc. Never did have the desire to purchase it. This one will be mine on day 1 though.

No purchase for me if it's not in a standard Blu-ray case, or the the height of a standard Blu-ray case, so I can wait.
