Has anyone decided on getting the 2 or 3 disc Pianist from Canada? I saw it on www.cnl.com and was wondering if anyone knows anything about this release. I know it's a bit early to ask about transfer comparisons, but is it a safe pre-order?

Hmm, this is interesting.

And Lions Gate, from what I remember, doesn't bother with French on the titles. And Dare I say it, they may keep the Theatrical Poster art, as opposed to the crappy DVD artwork for the US release.

That would be pretty badass if the coverat was the same as the poster art. Not to mention possibly more extras.
In Heaven, everything is fine.

For those that are interested here are the details on the Candian release from CNL:

Quote:
DISC 1:

* Anamorphic Widescreen (aspect ratio 1.85:1)
* English DTS 5.1 Surround
* English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround
* English Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo

DISC 2:

* “Story of Survival” Featurette
* Theatrical Trailers
* Television Spots including Adrien Brody Interview Segments
* Poster Gallery
* Photo Gallery
* Director's Note
* Q and A with Roman Polanski
* Production Diary
* The Warsaw Ghetto: Historical Background
* Wladyslaw Szpilman Biography
* Filmographies
* Bonus Audio Tracks from the Sony Classical CD Soundtrack
* Soundtrack spot

DISC 3:

* Original CD Soundtrack

So it appears the CD Soundtrack is the only addition to the US release (as well as the possibly alternate cover art). I think I'll be grabbing this release ala. BOTW. It also says "while supplies last" on Disc 3 at CNL.

Hmm... well it would be more convenient not to have to buy it in Amazon. Plus it's rare I admit a Canadian release actually looks better then the US (which is more then I can say for CSI). So as long as there is no French titles on the cover, they got my sale.

There are actually more special features on the Canadian version as it appears.

Cover art and specs here.

Canadian cover art blows away the US release in my opinion.
