Does anyone know what the bonus features are for the region 2 version of Apocalypse Now? I heard somewhere that it has deleted scenes that aren't on the R1 disc. Can anyone confirm or deny this? Also, I am talking about the original cut of the film, not redux.

...no idea what extras - if any - were on it, checked but couldn't find a review...

...however, I suspect that the UK release (of the original AN) may well have been exactly the same as - or else very similar to - the French R2 release:

...which may still be available from a French e-tailer (and which does not feature any deleted scenes - rather logically, I'd say)...

...come to think of it, there may be (or have been, at one time) a Japanese R2 DVD release, either with (highly unlikely!) or without deleted scenes...

...I checked the sites of my usual suppliers of German and Italian and Spanish R2 DVDs and although I did find a few Coppola titles there, AN was not among them...

Thank you, Hendrik, for taking the time to look that up for me.

Bill,

The UK R2 release from Paramount did have a form of deleted scene with a short commentary on the destruction of the kurtz`s compound.
See a review on the UK website DVD Reviewer for full details

This version is now deleted in the UK as Buena Vista have the rights to the Redux so I presume Paramount no longer allowed to release it. We don't even get this until April !

You may find here a review of the French R2 release of "Apocalypse Now Redux" (if you understand French) : http://www.dvdrama.net/fiche.php3?2192
According to this review, the aspect ratio on the DVD is 2.0

Didier.
