Exclusive - The long awaited "The Living Daylights" and region 2 Bond "Monster" Box Set will be available later this year. MI6 has the details...

"The Living Daylights" & Bond Box Set R2 DVDs
17th July 2003

MI6 has great news for Bond fans in region 2 - "The Living Daylights" and Bond Box Set will be available in November 2003!

When the Bond DVDs were re-released in late 2002 to coincide with "Die Another Day" in theatres, one title was missing from the series - "The Living Daylights". MI6 obtained an official statement from MGM Home Entertainment regarding the issue:
The reason the James Bond DVD "The Living Daylights" is not available to purchase as a single disc, yet is available in the James Bond Collection box set, is due to a pending rights issue that we had anticipated would have been resolved before our November DVD release.

MI6 can reveal that the distribution rights issue has now been resolved and "The Living Daylights" will be available in region 2 almost exactly a year later than the other 18 titles - on November 3rd 2003. The disc will be identical to the DVD released in 2000, when the "Special Edition" series was first released.

Audio Commentary Featuring Director John Glen And Members Of The Cast And Crew, Inside The Living Daylights Original Documentary, Ian Fleming 007s Creator Documentary, The Living Daylights Music Video, Never Before Seen Deleted Scene The Carpet Ride, The Making Of The Living Daylights Music Video, Collectable Making Of Booklet, 3 Theatrical Trailers.

James Bond "Monster Box Set"

Although available during the re-release of the "Special Edition" titles back in November 2002, the box sets were quickly pulled from shelves when "The Living Daylights" distribution rights issue prompted recall.

An updated edition of the James Bond "Monster Box Set" of DVDs will be released on 3rd November 2003 in Region 2 along with the individual "The Living Daylights" title - just in time for Christmas!

The new 20-title set will include the two-disc "Die Another Day" Special Edition. It will be housed in a similar tin to the previous boxed sets. The contents of the DVD discs will be identical to previous 007:SE releases, with special features totalling more than 85 hours.
