Sergio Leone's Western Trilogy with New Blu-rays

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly gets 4K Mastered

The Man with no Name trilogy is surely one of the most influential Italo western films out there. Iconic director Sergio Leone shot A Fistful of Dollars in 1964 and catapulted Clint Eastwood into stardom. A year later, For a Few Dollars More followed until the trilogy was concluded by one of the best western films of all times: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

Probably in June 2014, the US will get a new box set that is announced as 4K remastered. But as it looks right now, only The Good, The Bad and The Ugly will get this upgrade while the other two films will most likely only be repacks of the old MGM Blu-rays. Here, the 2nd film is a little shorter compared to the uncut version from Germany. More on this in our comparison.

It is likely that The Good, The Bad and The Ugly will, despite being remastered, still only be included in the MGM extended version and not in the Director's Cut, which is available on Blu-ray in Italy, for example. Whether that's really the case will have to require some more patience until the final details on the upcoming edition are announced.

Starting June 1st, 2014, the US should get their hands on the box set.
