    Here are the specs for the German Resident Evil 2-DVD set:

    Dolby Digital 5.1: German
    Dolby Digital 6.1: Englisch
    DTS ES Discrete 6.1: German, Englisch
    Disc 1: Audiocommentaries P. Anderson, M. Jovovich, B. Eichinger
    Disc 2: Making of; Deleted Scenes; Alternative Ending; Behind the Scenes; Trailer & TV-Spots; Biographies & Filmographies; Hidden Feature

    As you can see the commentary is different (it includes Producer Bernd Eichinger). Also the specs mention Commentaries. I also think the presence on the Alternative Ending and Deleted Screnes are new and long promised by Paul Anderson.

    I only hope the UK retail release (we currently have a no supplements rental release) will be the same in March.

    Is this a Fox/Pathe release ? as Amazon.de does't list the dist.
    R4 BV are releasing in April 03 a single disc the same as the R1 Sp Ed but with DTS added but the above double disc set is exactly what I've been waiting for...........[​IMG]

    Be aware that the specs mentioned above are for the German-only release by BMG Video.

    Yes. The specs I quoted are for the German release, which you will have trouble importing due to the film's rating.

    I am hoping that the UK disc(s ?) will be the same - Pathe are usually pretty good at sourcing extra supplements over the R1 release.

    What I meant is, since BMG Video only has distribution rights for Germany I wouldn't expect that the additional extras will appear on another version. See the German 5th Element 2-Disc-Set.

    And what's with the German rating? Like the existing rental release the DVD will be rated FSK16 (uncut). And since the FSK doesn't rate supplemental material there shouldn't be a problem.

    I hope you are right but wasn't Crying Freeman a Pathe DVD?
    I have emailed Fox/Pathe about DTS/extra's - will post it, if I ever get a reply.........[​IMG]

    The UK version of Resident Evil is not being distributed by Buena Vista but Pathe. Perhaps some other European countries are part of Buena Vista's rights domain, but not the UK.

    The same disc as the Australian release will not be released in the UK (as I presume it will have the Buena Vista ident at the start).

    Latest news is the Pathe UK sell-through release of Resident Evil will be sometime in the first two weeks of April.

    Look for an announcement in the first week of February or so. Fingers crossed for the same extras as the German version (after all it was a British/German co-financed film!)

    Can you please post a mini (or full) review of the German 2 disc when you get it (& who from?) as I'm sure a lot of people would be interested as opposed to waiting for the alleged R1 2 disc......
    Which if it appears at all won't be until after June03 ie after Black Hawk Down 2 disc & how long have people been waiting for that in the States (lucky old us in England have had it since the middle of Sept last year!) [​IMG]

    what abbout the german subs on the disc? are they imposed??
    I have the Dutch/Belgian set with fullbitrate english DTS and the same extras as R1 (from what I can gather about R1) but on 2 discs. (subs not imposed!!)
    Then again missing a few extras is not too bad as I only paid 20€
    HTH

    Forced subs are a posibility - Amazon.de only lists German subtitles - generally if the subtitles are only in the native language, subtitles are forced on English playback.

    However, my player can bypass forced subtitles on about 60%-70% of discs which use this feature. (Start playing the movie, stop it go to player's setup screen and turn subtitles off on the player's own language selection screen, then resume the movie. Sometimes, for some reason the disc will not allow the film to be resumed, which is when this method doesn't work).

    Australia doesn't have a sell-through release, but the rental release details have been posted earlier in this thread (basically its the same as the US + DTS)
    The UK is getting a single disc release - the exact contents are vague at the moment - bbfc submissions are listed in this thread, plus this link
    http://www.residentevilthemovie.co.uk/
    the exact nature of all of the 11 featurettes is not known (there's only 10 on the bbfc submissions if you ignore the making of and music video).

    [​IMG] Pathe's (Pathe-tic's)R2 UK release confirmed as being exactly the same as the first USA R1 release not even including DTS as per R4. [​IMG]
    DVD Times [​IMG]
    Seems to me to be the same Pathe-tic that missed DTS from Sleepy Hollow, as well as lots of stuff plus pan&scan of Crying Freeman.......

    Well the BBFC have certainly certified more than is reported from the DVD Times press release! The Pathe site too (although not listing the specific details) confirms 11 featurettes(not including the Making of and Music Video). I think this is a lazy case of PR.
    Edit: I stand corrected - the official Pathe site has changed the specs! [​IMG]
