The cover looks really good! I'm looking forward to watching it in blu ray. does anyone know what extras it has, since it's a collector's edition?

According to Amazon FR, the French edition will feature the extended director's cut (142 mn) and a booklet. It's probably the same master as the UK one, since both BDs are distributed by Fox. If I'm not mistaken, the US edition from Universal is the shorter international cut.

I love how it advertises Bob Hoskins who is barely in the film! Also obvious Photoshop...don't like how Johnathan's head is shoved in at the bottom.

Certainly a bit different!

If it has the 'full' (AKA Criterion) version then I'll be buying it.

Criterion owns the longer director's cut, so I doubt anyone but them will be releasing that. This site advertises it as the shorter 132 minute version, and that's what I suspect it is.

German disc thread: http://forum.blu-ray.com/germany/191...inute-cut.html


It seems UK has the longer version. Very odd we've had no review http://forum.blu-ray.com/united-king...ml#post5554669

I just read that the UK edition and the German one (presumably the french one as well) boasts a meager track (DD 2.0 @ 224 kbps) for the original audio. Is it true? If so I'd rather stick with Universal edition (despite of not being the extended cut) once it hits the 10 bucks mark.

Dolby Digital Stereo for a classic title released by a major studio in 2012? I cannot believe it! Please, tell me it's not true

French disc has "DTS HD Master Audio: Anglais:5.1" listed in most places.

Wait and see.

Then it'd be a different edition than the british and german one. Hopefully those specs are right. If so, let's just hope the disc is not region B-locked.

Thank you very much for the info.

Strangely enough, the UK Blu-ray is the Criterion director's cut, not the UK theatrical release. Wait and see if the French disc bests it will lossless audio.

Review of the French disc: http://www.lesnumeriques.com/film-bl...2684/test.html

Looks like we have 2.0 (DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0) audio confirmed -no problem with that here.

That is an awesome French release! It makes me want to splurge and get it now even though Criterion will release it eventually...

In the link posted by The Driver it says that the feature doesn't have forced subs, but I can't see anything about the extra's.

Full review @ http://www.avoir-alire.com/brazil-la...e-test-blu-ray

I don't think many people here are too bothered with some extras the distributor might of dug out of a skip somewhere. We have 15 years' worth of DVDs for the fluff and already have fairly definitive extras on the Criterion releases.

Important thing here is we're getting the version we believe is the definitive version which we know and love and in HD obviously. Oh, and for this particular thread, a nice book edition too

And it looks like the UK/French/German is that version.

Any new info on this bd since it was released yesterday? Forced subs? I'm assuming it's the same cut as the UK BD which seems to be pretty much in line with the Criterion DVD.
