    This can be pre-ordered pretty cheap from cd-wow (~£2.00 with vouchers!) Does anyone know how it differs from the original R2 release?

    Also does this come in DD 5.1?

    Thanks.

    Hi Tejstar,

    The prism release is basically the film only. It has no other extras, like deleted scenes, commentary etc.

    I would presume it comes as dd5.1 but not sure.

    I have ordered it, but doesn't come out till 26/1.

    Can't go wrong for £2.49 though. :smashin:

    I saw on another post, that Argos were doing the normal release for £4.99.

    I feel like a cheapskate !

    :devil:

    This is an extremly poor transfer of the film, and its letterbox, R2 can be picked up for a fiver at HMV i think and has extras and is anomorphic.

    Cheers guys, I've heard differing views as to the transfer of the film. Some say it's crap, some say it's the same as the standard release.

    There doesn't seem to be any official info out there either (from amazon, play etc) - guess I'll have to wait and see :)

    With a film like Donnie Darko you really should have the director's commentary to explain what the fudge is going on.

    Actually it has a few commentaries and lots of extras - it is NOT just the film. Where did you get it for £2.49 if you don't mind me asking?! For the record:

    Audio commentary by Richard Kelly and Jake Gyllenhaal
    Audio commentary by selected cast and crew including: Dreww Barrymore, Katherine Ross, and Jena Malone
    20 deleted and extended scenes with optional commentary by Richard Kelly
    Interviews with 20 principle staff and crew members
    B roll footage
    The philosophy of time travel
    Website gallery
    Artwork gallery
    'They Made Me Do It' art exhibition and making of art exhibition (featuring 'Mad World' by Gary Jules
    Cunning visions gallery and infomercials
    Theatrical trailer
    TV spots
    Extensive cast and crew filmographies

    Hi Dean,

    I got it from Cd-Wow. Was £4.99 but had £2.50 in vouchers. Have a look in the bargains and offers section for the details.

    Paul ;)

    Are you sure this Prism release has the extra features? The only 'special features' I have read it has are:

    Interactive menu & Scene access

    Great eh? Usually Prism only distribute extremely cut down budget style discs.

    Could you let us know what else you get on the 2nd disk when you receive your copies please?
    I don't speak German, but the list of extras doesn't look significantly different to the release I have on the face of it.

    Tin might be nice though;)

    You could be right, I am just going by what is listed on the play.com site - which is where they listed loads of extras! I've preordered Prism but if it is just the film I will cancel it as I would really like to hear the director's commentary for the film. PS Paul thanks for the price info :smashin:

    got the tin this morning

    tin looks fantastic. However it simply contains a standard two disc dvd case. So the disc holder is in no way connected to the tin itself.

    I don't think there are any additional extras that are not on other releases out there

    I don't really care about the extra features (although I may change my mind once i've seen the film :p ) but what I do want to know is how the pq and sound differs from the standard release.

    Anyone know?

    I don't normally care about special features either - there are only 2 films where I think they made a huge difference to my enjoyment of the film and I got "value" from them - LOTR and Donnie Darko. For a couple of quid I wouldn't even think about getting DD without the special features.

    Agreed

    It is one of the very few dvds where the extras are essential
