New on Blu-ray: James Bond x6

James Bond has never looked as striking as he does in these newly released high-definition transfers. These six unforgettable Bond tales never-before on Blu-ray are coupled with great bonus material, combining DVD extras that appeared on the previously released Special Editions with new bonus material to create a must-have Ultimate Edition. Furthermore, they’ve replaced the film footage used in the featurettes with HD transfers so now many of the re-issued extras are HD too.

The following is a list of the overhauled Bond flicks and the impressive roll of extras that accompany them.
