    Hi all,

    I have heard that there is a new Starship Troopers Special Edition DVD being released (Region 1).
    Several site (Digital Bits, DVD Review etc) mention the disc, but nobady has any details.

    It seems strange to me as there is already a pretty descent version out there (although it was one of the early DVD releases).

    Do any of you guys know anything about it?

    Lex.

    I was hoping for a 2-disc Superbit Deluxe with DTS sound, but unfortunatly it isn't....

    It's released on May 28th and has the following extras which don't seem all that much different from the original release to be honest:

    Disc One

    1.85:1 Anamorphic
    Dolby Digital 5.1
    Commentary with Paul Verhoeven, Ed Neumeier, Casper Van Dien and Denise Richards
    Isolated Score by Basil Poledouris

    Disc Two

    Deleted Scenes
    Documentary: "Death from Above"
    Behind-the-Scenes Featurettes
    Screen Tests
    Scene Deconstructions by Paul Verhoeven
    Special Effects Comparisons for Eight Sequences

    Hmmmn...don't see much point in binning my existing R1 version then.

    Sounds a bit pointless, really.

    Sounds like they've been reading the George Luca$ book of marketing :D

    Thanks tee,

    I seem to be cursed when it comes to DVDs. I only bought Starship Troopers about a month ago! It was the same when I bought Silence of the Lambs - three weeks later they announced the (R2) special edition. And then I bought Memento last month as well, only to learn that there is a new special edition of it being released this spring!!

    I m sure they are doing it to me on purpose!! :mad: :rolleyes:

    The isolated score seems the only thing worth buying the new Starship Troopers for (although i already own the cd :rolleyes: )

    Lex.
