    I'm just curious, as this is now on sale which it has never been before..and I can't seem to find a copy in stock anywhere in town....this smells to me like the signs of an upcoming re-release. Are there any rumors anywhere hinting that this may be so?

    highly doubtful as this was already reissued with a new anamorphic transfer and DTS soundtrack.

    There is already two edition of LAST OF THE MOHICANS region1 release.But internationally,THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS is not available anywhere in the world,probably due to who is the video rights holder.
    I think what you are refering to,is the international release.
    If there is a re-release,it will probably happen 2 or 3 yrs later.

    That's kind of what I was thinking too, but the disc is relatively bare bones are far as extras go. I woudn't but it past them to redo the soundtrack and video for one release, then tack some extras on for a subsequent release.

    Michael Mann oversaw production of both The Last of The Mohican DVDs. He would only approve them without ANY added-value material and NO trailers.
    Albeit some of Mann's films on DVD do have added-value supplements, you will notice that he does not participate in them. Nor does he provide audio commentaries.
    The Last of The Mohicans were the only DVDs that Mann had full control over.
    As for why you can not find it...
    Try an online store. I know Best Buy currently has it on sale for $19.99.

    I'm not sure which version I prefer, between the dts dvd and the latest laserdisc edition, ie, as far as the director's cut and theatrical version (ld) are concerned. I kinda liked the song during the climbing and the confrontation, which is not present on the dvd.
    will keep both for sure.
