    Looking at CD Wows site the R3 version runs at 109 mins and the R1 runs at 110 mins both are NTSC therefore R3 must be cut!

    Russ 66, thats poor logic. It could be a.) A typo b.) an approximate number c.) the fact that start/finish credits are different on non-US prints.

    I have just bought this R3 version and have checked the disk itself and according to Power DVD, it runs for 1 hour 49 minutes and 6 seconds. It has the Directors introduction stating that it's an unrated version.

    I really don't see this being a cut version.

    i watched the unrated version the other night, didn't really notice much difference in terms of gore, i think most of the extra scenes were extra bits in conversations, mainly homosexual in nature, at least i dont remember those from the screener i saw.

    I think i'll wait for the official Region 1 release with DTS sound and probably a better picture.

    As the version of the film and the extras of the R3 release are identical to the R1 release, does it mean that the picture quality will be identical?

    As far as I can gather only the Japanese Premium edition will have a DTS track. It may also bennefit from a higher bitrate with the bonus material being spread across two discs enhancing the picture quality. Fingers crossed!

    I emailed them 2 days ago about the running time of Dawn of the Dead and they said that it was correct and that once the Region 1 release came out they expected it to have exactly the same running time. They also said that they had removed the title from their website because they had so many pre-orders for it so they wanted to get all pre-orderes shipped out first then they would put the title back on their website.

    Subtitles will not be a problem as there are no foreign language parts in the film. (apart from the Zombie noises :D )

    The guy I have pre-ordered it from sent me this the other day..

    This is slightly better translation of the Dawn of the Dead contents

    Director's cut.
    Premium Edition.
    Japan original 4 types of TV spots

    Contents
    1. Director's cut explanation by the director
    2. Zombi special effect's back stage
    3. Zombi character creation
    4. Making of head explosion.
    5. Although it is in the middle of the program, there's a special program - slightly ambiguous translation!
    6. The tape which was found in Andy's shop
    7. 11 scenes of director's cut with director's voice explanation

    I also mailed CD Japan & they assured me that it is identical to every other region, apart from the glorious DTS track :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :clap:

    Is the R3 version of Dawn of the Dead listed on www.koreandvds.com and www.play-asia.com the same release Movietyme and CDWow are selling?

    Also, I noticed on Play-Asia that they have a R3 release of Shaun of the Dead coming out tomorrow, anyone know anything about it?
