    I am also looking forward to this release. The Ring was far from flawless, but it is one of the most entertaining films that I have seen in a while.

    Unfortunately, it appears that the short film bonus feature is going to be disappointing. [​IMG]

    I was waiting for the review to see if they included any deleted scenes.
    According to reports, the producers cut some scenes in order to get a PG13 rating. I was hoping they would release a director's cut or at least include the scenes as an extra. After reading the review, it ain't happening.

    What ever happened to releasing movies uncut when they went to video. It was fairly common a few years ago.

    Fox supposedly said they will release Daredevil with its R rated cut, but I'm not holding my breath.

    No trailer for The Ring on the DVD? [​IMG] This was one of the better ones I've seen in a while.

    Very disappointed that they don't have the trailer. The ending with a television tone was very effective.

    I was hoping that we would get both trailers also, especially the "normal" trailer, because it had a brief clip of one of the deleted scenes.

    International readers may be interested in some of these supplements passed by the BBFC recently (but as the film is still playing at the cinemas, expect a June/July release at the earliest in the UK):

    THE RING - CAST AND CREW INTERVIEWS TAPE #1
    Run Time 54m 25s

    00:18:27:09 | GORE VERBINSKI
    00:15:16:19 | MARTIN HENDERSON
    00:20:40:21 | NAOMI WATTS

    THE RING - CAST AND CREW INTERVIEWS - TAPE # 2
    Run Time 38m 27s

    00:18:23:24 | WALTER PARKS
    00:06:12:01 | DAVEIGH CHASE
    00:13:50:23 | HANS ZIMMER

    THE RING - INT'L DVD BONUS MATERIAL
    Run Time 2m 17s

    THE RING - DON'T WATCH THIS
    Run Time 14m 44s

    If nothing else, this probably hints at a later second release in R1. Those Interviews alone come to around 1.5 hours and there's probably still more to come...

    Another Ring Interview shows up at the BBFC (still no news on the UK DVD release date)

    I spoke too soon The R2 Project has a rumoured release date of 25th August
