They must be cramming all this on to one DVD, which explains the absence of the audio commentary and DTS track. Which means, I 'll probably have to get the UK R2 DVD for DTS and commentary and the R1 for the other extras.

Is there any indication as to whether the English subs are going to be optional? (Yes, yes, I know I'm anal about this.)

I believe that there will be both an English and a French commentary.

Would've been nice if they spread it across 2 discs.
