Does anyone know if this Warner double-bill of THE ROAD WARRIOR & MAD MAX BEYOND THUNDERDOME is going to contain the SE of the former?

I haven't made the HD/Blu-Ray leap yet (and am not likely to for the time being) but am hoping this still contains the George Miller commentary and extra features that are on the HD discs (and an improved transfer).

Most of these double features have been repacks, so it's more than likely that it'll be the same thing.

Right, but this has the same blue cover as the HD-DVD and Blu-Ray versions; I'd assume the minimal SE features would be included.

Looks like it might be a double sided (i.e. skippy) disc?

For that price it's all but guaranteed to be the current disc and not the upcoming remastered SE.

So this will be the first SE that's available only in HD and NOT SD-DVD? The blurb from the WB chat indicated a Road Warrior SE but there was no mention of HD exclusivity.

They're also reporting that a SD release is soon to be announced as well.
