Wow! Very cool! Hope the US edition gets great cover art.

That UK cover looks like they're really trying to capitalize on the Lndon 2012 Olympics!

LOSSLESS audio... something that belongs on EVERY Blu-ray Disc. Every one. Warner and Paramount: take a lesson.

If it's not 1.5 screen widths, it's not "Home Theater" -it's TV.

At that price I'm sticking to my UK preorder for now. Only downsides for me are (a) no digibook and (b) possible region-locking (which I can handle).
BD players: PS3 Slim 250GB; Sherwood BDP-5004 (region-free); HP P7-1010 (w/ LG WH12LS38K, AMD HD 6570, Hanns-G HL227, Altec Lansing 2.1 speakers, TMT 6, PDVD 11)
A/V hardware: Vizio E3D320VX 3DTV; Sony HT-SS380; Vizio Co-Star (Google TV); Radiient HDMI switch; Nook HD; Galaxy Tab 3 Lite; Moto G; iPhone 3GS

I like this Christian movie. I use to own Charriots of Fire on Laserdisc than DVD. Now I will get rid of my DVD and will own it on Blu-ray.

The Amazon pre-order screen says its 1 disc in the package. The Blu-ray.com website claims it has two discs in the package. The Blu-ray disc plus the motion picture soundtrack on CD. One of the websites has incorrect information about this title.

The soundtrack is a HUGE bonus. One of the best soundtracks ever. I'm in for this one. Outstanding movie and very deserving for it's Best Picture Oscar.

Does the US version have the soundtrack on CD? Amazon website currently says it only comes with the Blu-ray disc.

Never seen this, considering I'm a big fan of costume dramas I will give it a go.

It looks like there will be two versions released here. The digibook, as well a standard release. So no need to import if you think the digibook is too expensive.

You can see both listings at wbshop.com (no pics though)

Standard - $18.95

Digibook - $29.95

The digibook package also comes with a CD sampler that includes the following tracks from Vangelis' score:

"Titles"
"Abraham's Theme"
"Eric's Theme"
"Jerusalem"
