Blu-Ray Scream Franchise Collection

Alliance/Universal will release the Scream Franchise Collection onto Blu-Ray in Canada on August 10th. Dedicated special features are unlikely, as the company are known to release straight upgrade ports of titles in their library. It’s entirely possible the strange name is to allow room for a revamped trilogy-titled set once the inevitable USA new boxset gets its act together.

RRP is $39.99 but Amazon.ca have a pre-order price of $27.99 (now, that’s in Canuck dollars).

The Scream trilogy are already available on BD format in various parts of the globe either in full or in part (Australian release of part one pictured), offering gorgeous high-definition transfers that need to be seen to be believed.

  3. Man…why do the American audiences get screwed when it comes this kind of release? It’s not like the fans aren’t willing to drop the money for the releases. Hell, I’d be willing to try and find a TV set that does NTSC and PAL and find a Blu-Ray Player that does PAL and buy the Australian release even though it’s 10 minutes shorter than the American version just to have the damn thing on Blu-Ray. Shame on Dimension. :(

  5. Im from Scotland, and i feel the same way however i have to say America gets most films on blu-ray and dvd a good three months prior to us, so guys be grateful! The U.K will be getting the scream trilogy on Blu-ray Christmas 2010 and will contain the same special features as the previous boxset now out of print! A further release will appear on the shelves here in July 2011, however this will be a new quadrilogy boxset featuring Scream 4, with all discs completely revamped and loaded with extras!
    “The body count is alway’s bigger, the death scenes are alway’s much more elaborate, more blood more gore, carnage candy!”

  7. I wonder who do you write to about the scream trilogy dvd? I want more is the special features added when they make a new trilogy box set.

  9. I recently upgraded to a Blu-Ray Player a few weeks ago and was surprised that the Scream trilogy hasn’t been released yet. I actually just purchased the DVD trilogy set from Amazon for less than $15 and they look fantastic upcoverted in the player. I suppose I don’t mind Dimension Films taking their time with the American release AS LONG as they add some compelling bonus footage. I’m sure they have something up their sleeve, considering the buzz Scream 4 is receiving.

    This is a great time to be a Scream Fan!

  11. The following pertains to US home video rights ONLY…. Everyone should remember that the Weinstein’s (and Dimension Films) have now split from The Disney Company—who retains the release rights to any films made before the split. This includes the entire Scream trilogy. So, Scream 1-3 will continue to be released by Buena Vista Home Video unless the sale of Miramax goes through and then the home video rights could go to anyone. The Weinstein’s NEW home video deal is with Sony (I believe) so Scream 4 will be released by them. Without some wheeling and dealing between studios we may NEVER see a complete Scream box set. This same problem has prevented a complete ‘Halloween’ box set from ever being released in the US. Part 1 (tv version and theatrical), part 4 and part 5 are released by Anchor Bay. Part 2 is at Universal. Part 3 is a company called “Goodtimes,” I think. Just like the Scream trilogy, Part 6, H20 and Resurrection were made at Dimension BEOFRE the split so they stay with Disney. The Rob Zombie films were made at the NEW Dimension. I think Rob Zombie’s Halloween was actually released by Genius and H2 was released after the Weinstein’s deal with Sony so that one was done by them. Confusing, right? I’d prepare yourself for a long wait. While Disney would love to make money by releasing Scream 1 – 3, they also aren’t in the habit of helping other studios promote their sequel—especially after the problems between the Weinstein’s and Disney. I could very well see Scream 1 – 3 being withheld for quite some time. I mean, they’ve never even put the Director’s Cut of Scream out on DVD even though there have been 2 different versions of the disc (bare bones and collector’s edition)—neither one of which is enhanced for widescreen TV’s. So, best case scenario is probably an original Scream trilogy box set from Disney (hopefully with the Director’s Cut and some new features—commentaries!) and an individual release of Scream 4 from Sony.

  19. Update to my previous post: Disney sold Miramax and their catalog of over 700 films for $660 million dollars to Filmyard Holdings LLC – and its partners Ron Tutor and Tom Barrack. So, they now own the rights to Scream, Scream 2 and Scream 3. They do not own the sequel rights — obviously. So, that’s who we go to for Blu-Ray releases, Anniversary editions, 16×9 transfers, complete boxsets, DIRECTOR’S CUTS, etc.

  21. @waiting…

    Is there any news that company (or whoever is now behind a Scream Trilogy Blu-Ray Box Set) is working on (or will soon begin work on) a Scream Trilogy Blu Ray Box Set…or if they ever will??

    PLUS do you think its wise to purchase the Canadian import which was released yesterday (8/10/2010) or should we hold our for the U.S release?? Do you think its more possible we will get the U.S release now that Miramax is finally sold?

  23. As far as I know, the “new” Miramax has not signed a deal for releasing their titles. The best option would be for the “new” Miramax to sign their home video deal w/ Sony. That way all the Scream titles would be under 1 roof. This would allow for complete box sets featuring Part 4 and any future sequels. It would also prevent there from being any bad blood. For instance, let’s say Wes or Kevin wants to be seriously involved with special editions of all 3 films. If those rights are held by a studio other than Sony, it might create some bad blood between Wes/Kevin and the Weinsteins if they go and do that.

    However, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Weinsteins want nothing to do w/ the “new” Miramax and they could influence Sony to not get involved w/ them.

    Basically, keep your eye out for news that “new” Miramax has signed a home video deal with someone. Until then there can be no releases.

    But, whether they can do a complete 1-4 set or not, they’d have to put someone pretty stupid in charge to not have the first 3 films on Blu when Scream 4 hits Blu– if not when it hits theaters.
