Didn't see this posted here, thanks to Cameron at DVDTalk for posting the first news I heard of this.

Looks the same as the Australian release, except for the inclusion of (frankly useless) DTS and DD ES/EX tracks.

Glad to hear this news. I've seen the film twice on truly awful P&S VHS. It will be wonderful to see it on higher quality DVD in its full OAR. Posted Image

(And, yeah, the DTS and ES/EX tracks do seem like a weird choice for this film)

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

I couldn't believe how awful the trailer they have on the website is. Surely there must be a better trailer than that available.
