From The Digital Bits:

Quote:
First up, look for DreamWorks' Munich to be announced soon by Universal for release on 5/9. Separate single-disc widescreen and full frame editions will be available (SRP $29.98 each) along with a 2-disc Limited Edition (SRP $36.98). The single-disc editions will have a video introduction by director Steven Spielberg. The 2-disc edition will add a 7-part behind-the-scenes documentary (including The Mission, The Team, Memories of the Event, Portrait of an Era, The On-Set Experience, The International Cast and Editing, Sound and Music).

Overpriced 2-discer as usual. Here's hoping for a cheap R3. Posted Image

If the second disc of features is as good as the one we got with WAR OF THE WORLDS, I'm sold.

thedigitalbits reported that the WOTW 2-disc set will be for SRP $36.98 but then it turned out that the price is $39.00.i wonder if things will be the same in this case.

and oh yeah, the 2-disc set will be so limited, just like the 2-disc WOTW and the 3-disc The Terminal

FWIW, DVD Pacific lists it with an SRP of $39.98 (approx. $30 after discount).

This was my choice for Best Picture last year. I will happily pick up the two disc version. Posted Image

With a price that high, though, the cover art better be sweet.

I've never had to pay MSRP for a DVD. The only time I've gotten into the $30+ range was for a Criterion or a box set, which is reasonable. I paid $20 bucks for the 2 disc War of the Worlds brand new.

This is a no-brainer for me, I'm picking up the 2 disc Munich in a heartbeat.

Overpriced, sure, but as Aaron said, it's not like anybody's going to be paying SRP. Two disc version is going to belong to me. One of the best films of 2005 and a high point in Steve's career.

The Bits put 5 pics of possible artwork up a while back but they're not showing up at the moment.

That cover is awesome. And for this film, my personal favorite of 2005, I have no problem paying a higher price. I think of it this way: if this were a laserdisc release of the 2-DVD set, the retail would easily be $50 or higher.

I disagree about the cover art, and wish they'd just stuck with the original poster artwork. Oh well though, I'm definitely springing for the 2 disc set. This is my favorite film of 2005 as well.

I wonder how the single disc and 2-disc coverart will differ?

I missed this in the theater but I'll just buy the 2-disc. I really hope the limited edition has some better cover art as what's been posted is pretty horrendous.
