    Have tried to find some definite info on this with no real success...

    Can anyone confirm that the 3D Blu-ray release of Aardman's 'Pirates!' also contains a standard 2D version of the film?

    99.9 % of Sony 3D releases have a 2D version on the same disc and if not, they'll include it on a 2nd disc.

    Yeah, I suspected that was the case. Odd though that all of the listings I checked didn't have clear information on this.

    I have the 3D Blu pre-ordered from HMV (from their 20% Off code offer a while back) and even though I have a 3D projector, I don't want to be stuck with just the 3D option of watching any film.

    I have the box in front of me and it says 2D and 3D on the back.

    'Harvey'; 'The Trial' & 'Homeland' (all dispatched on 6th) landed this morning from HMV.

    'Titanic' (dispatched on 5th) has yet to dock! Probably hit an iceberg on its way here.

    And The Pirates, due to arrive today, still haven't set sail. HMV certainly are all over the place lately! :rolleyes:

    I cancelled it, picked it up on ebay sealed for £13.

    I've also cancelled all my orders with them.

    I'll be keeping well away, until I hear of a marked improvement in service.

    Looking at this disc now

    Single disc in the set, both 2D and 3D on it - defaults to 3D menu when played on a 3D setup

    Hi,

    Can anyone confirm for me, please, what the extras are that are on the Sainsbury's DVD release of this film, which comes with a second disc of content? :lease:

    I need to know whether the extra content is worth getting the title from them, or if I should stick to the Blu-ray release - which has relatively minimal extras any way, or at least, it looks like it has minimal extras. :(

    Is this worth a buy? It's not often I pay the full shop price nowadays but I was tempted by this in Morrisons at £15 the other day.
