The aspect ratio for both versions WILL be 2:39.1 (also known as 2:35.1).

anyone heard any UK news yet? It's nice that these things are region free but it costs a bomb to import...either that or can someone let me know of a good - inexpensive import site? Cheers!

I dont find import blu's that bad, alot are around £15 new granted and then a couple of quid delivery. I import 80% of blu-ray releases from the states and then the other 20% i get in the sales over here. You'll probably pay a little more to import, but the choice is better, you get them earlyer and you dont have the BBFC logos.

I have a rule though anything over £20 and i wont import it, think the most i spent so far on a sinlge import is £20 and that was for Trick 'R Treat.

As someone who has steadfastly refused to buy any version of this film on DVD over the last decade due to the aspect ratio fiasco, I nearly fell off my chair when I read this the other night! Hallelujah! common sense prevails at last...

Just one query regarding the end credits. Any chance that the destruction of the compound sequence will be re- integrated into the film? That's the ending that was present on its first two showings on BBC2 in '85 and '88 (I was only 12 in '79 so couldn't see it at the cinema), and again in recent years on its outings on ITV4 of all places. Its not the end of the world if that's not to be the case, but it would be nice. Main thing is we've got OAR at last.

Still no mention of the commentary for the main feature. Hmmmm.

Yeah good point. Seems to be the only thing(s) not carried over. Hopefully a typo/oversight.

The Heart of Darkness commentary with Mr and Mrs Coppola has been retained so it would too kooky (even for FFC) to jettison the main commentary (which is a great one, some really good stuff on Brando). I'm swinging towards getting the 3 disc release even though it has that cover art, seems to be available for around £25 on amazon - and the £ is rising against the $ so by October could be an even better price - not sure about horseflesh's poor old euro, though

Anyone know what Lionsgate's track-record on region-coding is ? Might be time to spring for one of those Oppos which can be bought for £290.

47% to 62% likely to be region free

So not that great odds

I've just bought a US PS3. This waiting in anticipation for title X to be region free business has been doing my head in. Too many good titles now out that are locked A.

True. Me and the missus like those Buzz games, though, and I'm using it as a juke-box too.

I wouldn't have one as my 'only' player anyway. Just use mine as a way of playing the rare disc that is region-locked.

That's exactly what I was thinking, but given that there's been revisions to the press release (adding audio specs for example) and still no mention of the main commentary I'm starting to get all pessimistic.

I'm not gonna hold off if the main commentary is not there, but it'd be a shame to lose it nonetheless.

Why would they leave it off? The only reason I could think of, is that we will be getting new cuts of the movies, so the commentary won't sync up.

New versions? Even though it says '1979 version' etc on the box? Nah. In any case, commentaries can be edited to fit. Could be a licensing issue.

Edit: Bill Hunt has told me that the extras for this release were approved by Zoetrope, so if the commentary is not on there then it's not because of any undue influence from Lionsgate or any licensing problems.
