Warner Bros. Releasing Diamond Luxe Editions of Classic Films

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release Diamond Luxe Editions of its films starting Sept. 30 as a way to repackage library titles.

The discs will feature newly designed collector-style packaging.

The first films — “The Green Mile,” “Gremlins,” “Natural Born Killers,” “Forrest Gump” and “Ben-Hur” will be released as anniversary editions, with “Ben-Hur” also offered as a new two-disc Blu-ray package.

All Diamond Luxe discs will include new or additional bonus features and are priced at $24.98.

Warner Bros. said the new line is meant to encourage collectability. It’s also clearly a way for the studio to mint more coin out of its library at a time when more consumers are building digital libraries for their mobile devices.

    Release Burt Reynolds’ Hooper as one of these classic titles on blu-ray, Warner!!!

  2. JoelR says:

    So except for BEN-HUR, no Blu-Ray for the other titles? No thanks, then.

    • Lex Walker says:

      They’re all Blu-ray (you can see the Blu-ray logo on the Green Mile discs – and I just got a WB press release saying as much), I don’t know why they felt the need to single out Blu-ray’s two-disc status (as it’s not the only one).
