According to the specifications, it's not only Region 1/A, but the running time makes it the extended 3 hour, 38 minute cut as well...cool!!!

Sheltering Sky was never in 2.35. I saw it in 70mm on opening day in LA.

well just got this reply from amazon JP : Thank you for writing to us at Amazon.co.jp. Regarding your inquiry, it is confirmed that the item, "ラストエンペラー コレクターズ・エディション(初回生産限定) [Blu-ray]" has "Aspect Ratio: 2.35:1" as you see on the product page. According to the label, "Geneon Universal," the "Aspect Ratio: 2.35:1" is the first one in the world with the item.

I've ordered this at the Amazon Japanese website, but they're allowing only one copy per customer, as this is A LIMITED EDITION ITEM...just giving everybody a heads-up!!!Posted Image

When a Japanese release of "The Last Emperor" became available on Laserdisc, they snipped out a few seconds of footage that depicted "Japanese atrocities".

I'll report if they left that part of the dialogue in for that key scene when I check it...

looks like the bonus disc is three documentaries they got from criterion,which for the most part are in English ,there are a couple people who speak in Italian,so there are no English subtitles for that ,The long version is 2.35:1 16x9 DTS Hd the surtitles on that and the other version can be removed ,haven't compared picture yet there's no commentary so one will have use for the Criterion version for something,also there are also other extras which aren't on the Japanese Universal set

This looks close to the criterion to me,more so than the french Pal version which before this Japanese version came out was the best version That I had, That is yellower , I think its excellent ,the best so far and it even has resume play!! you can watch the long version now and of course it isn't cropped like the Criterion version

Any news if this is coming in Region 1? (I was complaining about the current Criterion set on another thread, so I figured I'd better look into it.)
