    News on the US version is on DVDFILE:

    "After a few fits and starts, on May 13th Warner Home Video will at long last release a new 2-disc special edition of Roland Joffe's highly acclaimed The Mission. This 1986 Best Picture nominee will feature a newly-remastered 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer, an English Dolby Digital 5.1 surround track, audio commentary by director Roland Joffe, the brand-new "The Making Of The Mission" 60-minute documentary, filmographies, an awards list and the theatrical trailer. Retail is $26.95. "

    Looks like a "must buy"

    This is good news, thx for the info.

    I was looking for a copy of this last year and managed to source someone selling an R2 (Netherlands) copy on eBay, it does have an English DD5.1 soundtrack which sounds ok but the fact that you cant turn the subtitles off and its 4:3 p&s sort of spoils it :blush:

    I'll certainly be swapping it for the SE release when it comes out, it sounds like its a much better disc - fyi you can have a look at the specs of the NL copy in my dvdprofile here - http://www.dvdprofiler.com/mc.asp?alias=Kronin
