    There is a sequel coming out soon so i imagine they are re-releasing the original to cash in on the sequel, often happens with films.

    Probably the same dodgy Southerner accent that he normally has.

    Some small edits were made to the movie depending on where you watched it.




    DVD CUTS.


    R1 America - (Fox) - No cuts, This is the PG-13 theatrical release.
    R2 France - (Fox) - No cuts, 88:46 (PAL). Appears to be a slightly longer version than the PG-13. It has at least two longer scenes on the film itself (Fight on the bus, and the final fight on the motorway).
    R2 CE France - (Fox) - No cuts, 88:46 (PAL). Appears to be a slightly longer version than the PG-13. It has at least two longer scenes on the film itself (Fight on the bus, and the final fight on the motorway).
    R2 SE Germany - (Universum Film Home Entertainment) - No cuts, 88:46 (PAL). Appears to be a slightly longer version than the PG-13. It has at least two longer scenes on the film itself (Fight on the bus, and the final fight on the motorway).
    R2 Holland - (Fox) - No cuts, 88:21 (PAL). This is the PG-13 theatrical release.
    R2 Italy - (Fox) - No cuts, 88:21 (PAL). This is the PG-13 theatrical release
    R2 Japan - (Asmik Ace Entertainment) - No cuts, 92:03 (NTSC). Appears to be a slightly longer version than the PG-13. It has at least two longer scenes on the film itself (Fight on the bus, and the final fight on the motorway).
    R2 Scandinavia - (SF Films) - No cuts, 88:21 (PAL). This is the PG-13 theatrical release
    R2 United Kingdom - (Fox) - No cuts, 88:21 (PAL). This is the PG-13 theatrical release.
    R3 Hong Kong - (Fox) - No cuts, 92:03 (NTSC). Appears to be a slightly longer version than the PG-13. It has at least two longer scenes on the film itself (Fight on the bus, and the final fight on the motorway).
    R4 Australia - (Fox) - No cuts, 88:21 (PAL). This is the PG-13 theatrical release.



    The Japanese and German releases not only feature the longer version of the film, but also include a DTS ES 6.1 soundtrack and have most of the extras as seen on the French disc. The Japanese also includes some additional trailers through, unfortunatly the commentary and the longer making-of on these two releases are in French and do not include English subtitles.
    The French CE specs are almost identical to the two above but missed out on the DTS track, instead it's a 3-disc release that includes two CD's, Unfortunatly just like the Japanese and German releases, this too does not include English subtitles on the French extras.

    The R1 US, R2 UK, Dutch and Scandinavian or the R4 releases include a different (English) audio commentary, But note that these releases are of the shorter theatrical cut.

    well it will have DTS, but if you look at the way the description is worded, it would seem that the extended fight scenes are a separate option and not part of the film.
    What makes me think this is that it says optional audio commentary like you have with deleted scenes on other dvds. It does not mention seamless branching or any info that would lead me to belive that this is nothing more than a souped up version of the standard region 2 release.
