    no specs yet, but judging by previous benny vista releases can we expect a dts soundtrack? If films like Chicago (both released by Buena Vista in US & UK) get a release in dts, then surely we can expect the same from a massive blockbuster like this...can't we?

    :confused:

    If the DVD can match the DD EX soundtrack I heard at our local flea pit last night, DTS will not be missed.

    BTW what was Geoffrey Rush's Accent Bristol/Irish/Oz/Scots? great fun

    According to the Dolby website, POTC had a cinematic DD-EX soundtrack and, according to them, any such DD-EX soundtrack will also be featured on the subsequent DVD release... so whether it's listed as such or not, the POTC DVD should actually be EX encoded.

    nice collectin of extras. I hope that the making of is decent and not just some EPK stuff.
    the bloopers might be good though.
    I think we might be lucky over here and get DTS.
    BV seems to put DTS on UKR2 while not on R1.
    but can we wait long enough?

    Jack Davenport played Commodore Norrington. Orlando Bloom played Will Turner.

    I think Mr Bloom is rather busy at the moment & can't find time to do a commentary.

    BV seems to have had identical releases over their last few (major) releases. Chicago had exactly the same everything(!) right down to the menus (which included dts) so it looks likely that the UK will have a 2 disc Special Edition (much like the US release - lacking dts).

    Have to agree that the soundtrack in dolby at the cinema sounded great, but you have to remember that most soundtracks are remastered for home use (mainly due to differing sizes of rooms - the original soundtrack is designed for a room which is - to be fair - preety massive!)

    Most DVD releases have a better soundtrack release than the cinema anyway; Austin Powers Goldmember and Final Destination 2 have some of the most aggressively remixed home soundtracks you'll here.

    So back to the main subject, i'm saying NO - UK won't get dts, on this release anyway!

    What do you think...?

    Buena Vista UK released dvd's with DTS sound many ocassions where as the US release did not have DTS like Treasure Planet or Signs.
    Pirates Of The Caribbean is a Disney title and even though the press-release states no DTS I think it will end up there eventually and if not it has a very good chance it does have DTS in the UK.

    I suppose, Chicago wasn't having dts in us or uk right up until 3 weeks before launch when it was confirmed (for the UK at least) in a 'final' press release. The US never had it officially confirmed until it was released when it was then known to feature a dts track, so, with a bit of luck Pirates could have dts yet...

    Anybody heard any more on this 5th Dec R2 release date. I said in another thread that Amazon have this up for pre-order at that date. But isn't it strange that no other supplier (that I can find anyway, before I get flamed..) has it?

    The 5th is a Friday, and surely they wouldn't miss the oppurtunity to do a smae date R1/R2 release by 3 days? It all sounds a bit susspect to me?

    Cheers

    I wish Buena Vista would release more of their DVDs as part of the "VISTA Series" - the exisitng "VISTA Series" dvds are fabulous, but there are only 4 or 5 of them :(
