Westley and Princess Buttercup will be celebrating their 25th anniversary this October with a release of a special edition Blu-Ray on the second of the month. With this we are going to be getting a ton of special features, and a chance to influence the set, take the jump for a look.


First off, the special features.
· Audio Commentary by Rob Reiner
· Audio Commentary by William Goldman
· As You Wish: The Story of The Princess Bride
· Cary Elwes Video Diary
· Miraculous Makeup
· The Dread Pirate Roberts: Greatest Pirate of the Seven Seas
· Love is Like a Storybook
· The Princess Bride The Untold Tales featurette
· The Art of Fencing featurette
· Fairytales and Folklore featurette
· Original theatrical trailer
· Easter Eggs

Secondly, our chance to influence the item.

What we have here are two possible covers for the film. Over on their Facebook page, we get to decide which of those two will be picked. Personally, I like the classic a bit better, but the crown does have a few decent touches. So, go vote, then come back here and tell us what you decided.

    Personally I like the second since in the movie the story is being read to the kid. It adds to the whole idea that what we’re seeing is what is being imagined as the story is told (at least that is how I’ve always seen it).

    “Have fun storming the castle!” I have used almost as many catch-phrases from P.B. over the years as I have from Ferris Buller, Animal House, The Blues Brothers and Stripes. A true classic.

    First BEST MOVIE EVER, I kill 2 VCR tapes from over playing this move. I voted for the 2nd one, I like that most of the charterers are on there and it fits the story a little better. I already have a Blu-Ray copy but I may have to get this one the extra’s look outstanding. The Audio Commentary by William Goldman is a nice touch; I have his hardcover book The Princess Bride (The “Good Parts” version).
