    Anyone know anything about the following?

    MISSION IMPOSSIBLE - Months ago I read that there was to be a special edition DVD released with decent extras - Where is it?

    DTS - Has anyone actually heard a DTS soundtrack in a UK cinema?!! Most films have a dts soundtrack these days yet they never appear in the local multiplex (also what about SDDS? Has anyone heard this at all???:rolleyes:

    How do you know your watching a DTS or SDDS presentation? My local UGC (which is huge - Sheffield) can present all three yet I have never seen the 'Boot up demo' before a film in the same way as a Dolby D film, or indeed a DVD, to let the audience know which format is being used.

    Also: Any info on the Mission Impossible SE would be good as I keep holding back from picking the original version up in the many sales.

    There was an SDDS trailer before the film started and there is often one before films with a DD track. I have never seen a film in DTS as far as I know.

    Regarding Mission Imposssible - I personally have heard nothing. I can also say it donsn't appear on Paramount's release schedule for the next couple of months anyway. I would put money on there being one at some point however.......... If there is money to be made etc..

    I've heard Jarassic Park, 12 Monkeys, Lord of the rings and others in dts Theatrically. Thing is most projectionists I know are lazy and can't be bothered to splice the trailer in as they put the print together. Lost count how many i have heard in SDDS which is a brilliant format.

    There was an SDDS trailer, or at least something saying that the film was in that format before it started

    My mate was the manager of a Warner Village so I got to see most things in whatever format I wanted too, on my own in a screen. Best presentation i ever saw was Cat and Dogs in DLP with dts, awesome. I was on my own in the screen which was also THX certified.
    Best way to find out what format they are using is to ask a manager etc, just dont ask one of the day release workers;)

    At my local Warner Village they always show a trailer letting you know whether you are watching SDDS, DD,DD EX, THX or dts.Basically the ones you see before the movie starts on your dvd...:D

    I saw Blade II with an SDDS Soundtrack & MIB II with a DTS Soundtrack last year, both at my local Odeon. I've noticed that cinemas these days put a small trailer in just before the main feature what soundtrack the film going to be presented in.

    So does anybody know why SDDS is not used on DVD's? (Maybe THX 1138, being on the inside, knows the answer to this)
    I would have thought it would at least appear on Columbia Tristar DVD's due to their being owned by Sony.

    Sony claim it is because of two reasons. Exclusive to movie theatres and no-one would ever have the space for 5 speakers accross the front soundstage at home.
