Except for the cover of Pan, the content will be identical so I dont see me buying both at all, rather just the BDs.

So the content of both the DVD and bluray are identical?

I thought I read somewhere there was a difference in supplemental interviews. But maybe I dreamt that.

No, the discs are supposed to be the same as far as I can see. The difference is really just the book with an exclusive essay.

Now that we're closer to the release date and that we know the final product has already had one print run, I emailed Mulvaney about this possibility, to know if it's still feasible or not. As usual when I email them about things different from a simple replacement program, I haven't had any feedback yet. I'll update this if I do get one at some point.

Seeing the captures for Pan's Labyrinth, I can't help but think this looks more like The Spirit of the Beehive (and I believe that was cited as an influence for this film and for GDT in general).

GDT was pretty open about the influence of Erice. PL is a lot more fantastic, but the central thesis of both films: fascist Franco horror seen through the eyes of an innocent child-is quite similar.

I ordered it today through the flash sale, but since I did get the previous two, I'm mildly disappointed that I won't be getting the box ;).

I just saw GDT's own copy of this poster at the Minneapolis Institute of Art's "At Home with Monsters" show. Such a gorgeous piece. I'm not sure if the museum had just a print or the original, but it looked like the original (there was plenty of texture and substance, though it could have been reprinted on a canvas I suppose). It made me want this poster even more.

Incidentally, they were selling copies of the Trilogía at the MIA, in addition to the "At Home with Monsters" shirts and a nice looking book (I picked up both). Several people were buying the boxed sets in the gift shop, and that made me happy to see, for Criterion's sake.

New Line/WB has announced an upcoming UHD 4K release of Pan's Labyrinth, which I believe is the first time one of the licensed major studio titles has subsequently got a UHD release after a Criterion BD release (at least in the US).

People have been complaining about the older Universal BD being DNRed and all, so I guess it started from a good intention.
