    Was in my local 'blockbusters' last night and noticed they had a couple of copies of this film for £9.99.

    However; 'Confusing packaging alert!'
    The front of the case stated widescreen but the little screen logo on the back said 4:3.
    Also the sound format icon (little square with boxes to denote speakers) said DD5.1 but was the symbol for stereo (not even surround).
    :confused:
    Can someone who has actually seen this disc confirm please, as I wouldn't mind seeing this film again but am not paying a tenner for a P&S version.
    Cheers

    This disc is 1.85:1 widescreen (but it is not anamorphic) and is DD 5.1. The picture quality ain't that great.

    There is a special collector's edition due out soon - I'd hang on for that (anamorphic 1.85:1) if I were you. Or you can get it already from www.ezydvd.com.au (region 4 PAL) for about £13. The R1 collector's version has been out some time now if you don't mind NTSC.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers for that Matty, Glad I checked first now.
    Where did you hear about the SE of this then?
    & do you know of a release date?
    Unfortunately R4 is out for me (at the moment anyway - R2 only player :( )

    Sorry - I haven't heard of any official release date.

    As America & Australia have it already it can't be long. As lots of places are now selling the original version off cheap (I've seen it for £7.99 at MVC) it makes you wonder if they know already! Someone like HMV might confirm the date.
