    Anyone know anything about this version being released in April?

    It's widescreen and 177 mins long. Is this a new / director's cut, or merely the extended TV cut of the movie in widescreen format?

    Sanctuary Digital have already twice delayed release of their 'Special Edition' Dune, hope it arrives in April.

    It is apparently anamorphic, and may have a newly mixed 5.1 sound. I really hope the 177 minutes is for the film and not film+extras, if so we are really in for a treat.

    I hope that the 177mins is a David Lynch version and not the Allen Smithee TV version. I currently have the R4 special edition with DTS track which is very good apart from thr fact it is non anamorphic. I recon with David Lynch involved they could probably fill another two discs with extras, it would also be interesting if they were going to include the arguments and or resoning for the 'TV Version'

    I doubt it'll be the TV version because it was made in 4:3. A second disc with the TV version on might be an idea if there arn't many extras, otherwise a 3 disc set would be nice!

    I suppose that 4:3 TV version was a pan and scan cut of the orginal film print - so in theory they should be able to combine the extra footage in a new widescreen format with the original widescreen release - and do it anamoric this time.
