    In March, Warner Brothers is dropping a new 70th Anniversary Edition of Casablanca.

    http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=8054

    A few things I gleaned.

    1. NEW 4k Transfer. The previous HD DVD and Blu Ray releases were an old 2k Transfer. This is from Warner's own restoration which brought us Citizen Kane (which looks amazing).
    2. New Extras, many of which were not on the previous release

    Here's a list
    The box set looks just like the Ben Hur Big Ol' Box of Junk. I'll be curious to see if they release a separate Movie Only version as well. I know Best Buy has been known to do this. Thus, if you want to buy it but don't want the Big Ol' Box of Junk, you might shop around a bit when it releases.

    Any idea how much?

    I think I have 3 copies now.

    And the poster sounds great, but if they fold it up.....

    Amazon Pre Order price is $48. Similar to what I paid for the Ben Hur box set.
