    OK, I finally broke down and bought an HD television and a bluray player. I now find out the one movie that I wanted in bluray isn't available. Does anyone know if The Last of the Mohicans will be out on bluray this year?

    It's not on any of the lists I check each week for any time this year, Bob.

    Good luck with your new set up. Enjoy!

    I have seen a list purportedly of part of Warner's planned Blu-ray release schedule for 2010 in Europe. Warner has distribution of Last of the Mohicans in Europe and it is listed for late next year. That obviously doesn't have any direct bearing on a US release as Fox owns this film in the US and they have not made any noise about this title over here.

    I will also note that Warner distributes the original theatrical version of this film, not the so-called director's cut that was released on DVD by Fox in the US. Since if was Michael Mann that altered the theatrical version (hence the term "director's cut"), it is likely that will be the version that eventually gets released on Blu in the US. Some of us do still like, if not prefer, the theatrical version, so the Warner release will be of as much interest to some of us as any eventual US release from Fox. As this is one of my top ten "desert island" movies, I will no doubt have both if both get released.

    Was the theatrical cut ever released on DVD in the States? I think I may have seen it back in the VHS days, and I watched some of it on Hulu recently to see the changes.

    I can't wait to get this title on Blu-ray. Hopefully, they will seamlessly branch both cuts.

    I am expecting the review copy some time this week, but Fox typically gives very little lead time.

    I just got the blu-ray edition. I was glad to see that the Clannad song, I Will Find You is on this edition.
