James Bond box sets, collectibles, and more to be released ahead of SPECTRE

james bond collectibles blu ray dvds set
Fans of Britain’s most dashing secret agent are in for a real treat this Fall. In advance of the November 6 release of SPECTRE, MGM Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment are releasing special edition Blu-rays, DVDs, and collectible box-sets on September 15.

Two new featurettes will be included among the bundle of collectibles, both of which are based on interviews with famed Bond screenplay writers Robert Wade and Neal Purvis. One will detail the history of SPECTRE (The Shadow of SPECTRE), while the other will recap the backstory of the Daniel Craig-era James Bond films (The Story so Far).

Also dropping on September 15 are limited edition Steelbook Blu-rays aimed at home entertainment enthusiasts. The collectible set includes six films that feature the shadowy SPECTRE organization that gives the upcoming film its name (including From Russia With LoveThunderball, You Only Live Twice, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Diamonds Are Forever, and For Your Eyes Only), along with the series’ three most recent entries (Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, and Skyfall). Each Blu-ray features metal packaging with imagery inspired by the films’ iconic opening title sequences.

Those looking for the definitive Bond box-set will want to grab The Ultimate James Bond Collection, which features all 23 of 007’s risky/risque adventures in one bundle. The set even leaves a 24th slot open for SPECTRE when it hits small screens, and also provides digital copies of each film in the series.

Dedicated Actor Packs with new packaging will also be released on Blu-ray & DVD. The packs feature the films of Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig respectively.

Of course, we may soon have a new entry in that elite group. Craig is only signed on for one more film as the iconic sharp-dressed spy and bookies are already taking odds on who will step into his tux and fill those very big and very well-shined shoes — British actor Idris Elba seems to be the top name being whispered by the rumor mill at present.

SPECTRE hits theaters November 6, 2015 and stars Monica Bellucci, Ralph Fiennes, and Christoph Waltz in addition to you know who.
