Bohemian Rhapsody DVD/Blu-ray

Postby KNIGHT » Sun Nov 25, 2018 11:44 pm

Sooner or later it will be released a version of Bohemian Rhapsody in DVD and Blu-ray.

We can buy it already in some sites including Amazon.

Is there any more info about this?

Think I'm general, they tend not to do too much promotion of the home release while the film is still doing really well in the cinema.

I notice a few different places have 'exclusive' versions of it. I guess it'll be out early spring.

At the shop I work in, we get a list every few months of forthcoming releases. A lot of the time the dates are provisional and subject to change, but the one we got in most recently listed BR for a home release in February. It was either the 18th or 25th, can't remember off hand right now.

HMV seem to have an exclusive DVD and Blu-ray combo edition with a book-style sleeve, which matches with the QOL exclusive sleeve for the soundtrack. There is a 4K Blu-ray edition available too, but that just seems to be the standard sleeve.

January seems slightly early. It's still in theatres everywhere now . Think the March release date seems like a more likely fit.

I agree too but they will probably want the film to be released before the Oscars.

January 31st is a Thursday, so that definitely won't be the UK home release date.

Except on very, very rare occasions, DVDs release on a Monday in the UK. However, I think it's a different story in the States where they could be released on any day of the week.

Been a while since I had a vested interested in DVD releases. Does that typically happen that they rush out films that are in theaters at the end of the year onto DVD to catch the Oscar buzz (should said film be involved in the Oscars)?

Amazon UK are now stating March 4th as the release date for the DVD / Blu-Ray / 4K release.

There also appears to be an Amazon exclusive Steelbook listed as well, though that still has a placeholder release date on it.

HMV are apparently doing an "exclusive" 2-disc blu-ray, the second disc is described as a film-book, whatever THAT is.

I think that's just the style of the case, based upon the image they're using on their site.

OK, got it.

The two discs are the blu ray AND the DVD. It seems all the other releases of it, have one or the other.

Still think I'll probably buy that one, as far as i can see, you effectively get an extra copy on DVD for just a fiver more.

There's a strong sense of "special features" = "fancy packaging", which is an eminently QPL approach.

Are we taking bets on the existence of a "see the WWRY musical" sticker, in any appropriate countries?

Is the book that comes with it the official movie book?
