Both of these discs are finished. Crimson Tide was supposed to be released in 2002 in Region 1 and is still MIA. Has it been cancelled or something?

According to the producer of BlackHawk Down's SE, work was finished. This was supposed to be a 1st quarter 2003 release, yet we've heard absolutely nothing on this 3-disc set. Does anybody know anything on a possible release date for this?

Regards,
Dan

re: Black Hawk Down SE

I think we received the unofficial specs a few months ago and the first quarter 2003 release, but that's about it. I'm very curious to know what happened because we should have gotten the street date by now.

re: Crimson Tide

I don't think we've heard anything about a R1 release for awhile. My guess is that it's been canceled.

Also, does anyone know what happened to the Panic Room SE?

Last I heard Feb. But this was an unconfirmed date.

Oops forgot that was for Black Hawk Down.

Crimson Tide SE is available in any R2 country.
BHD SE is available in France or Belgium in a great 3DVDset with superb packaging (still no DTS though)

If it's February, we should have heard something. I think 1st Quarter of next year is slowly slipping away.

Does the R2 version have a commentary track recorded by veterans from the actual mission?

Jeez, I hope the BHD SE hasn't been canceled. I've put off buying the "reg." edition in anticipation of this. Someone say it ain't so!

heres my review thread for the r2 and i've included pics of the disc artwork/packaging for the Belgium 3 disc version, so at least you know what your getting on the r1 3 disc.

I'm waiting on Panic Room. I hate the new Columbia SE policy. Like cancelling all the supplements from Sixth Day and rereleasing it later... it's become a pattern.

Any word on the Resident Evil SE with deleted scenes and a making of? Or are they waiting until Nemesis is released (Hope not, it hasn't even started filming)? I wish they'd drop the price on Starship Troopers and Mask of Zorro to make up for it! Posted Image

I too have been holding off Black Hawk Down because Ridley Scott films get some great special editions and hopefully it will come with a DTS track.

There is a so called Crimson Tide Special Edition in Region 4. Here are links to two review for those interested.

Don't be surprised if there is no DTS track on BHD:SE. This would be an ideal Superbit movie a year or so after the SE.

Read the reviews for the R4 Crimson Tide; only making me want the R1 SE even more.

I'm glad I picked up BHD used over the summer...I'd be dying if I hadn't.

From what I understand and I have heard this second hand yesturday after I talked to a friend regarding this post. He stated that the hold up seems to be with Ridley Scott. Now I know Mr. Scott is a fan of DVD look at the great disc's he has done with the studios before (Legend, Gladiator). So can anyone else confirm if this is true? And if it is what the deal is with the hold up.

the same version is out on r2 as well. The only difference (that I can make out) regarding extras that were'nt on the great THX LD is that there are a few deleted scenes, the making of and trailer that were on the LD are on this too, Nice but not much of a SpEd though.

YES the DVD has 3 commentaries and a very funny easter egg, Dos and Don'ts of commentaries (eg: actors don't need to say that Ridley is a genius, we all know it and Do not try to be funny u are not)

I would just be happy with a real nice transfer on Crimson Tide.

I am curious too. This was one of those movies I was on the fence about buying when it was first announced. Then I heard that an SE was on it's way, so I held off on buying (or even seeing) the original. I'm getting antsy and am wondering if I should just rent it or wait for the SE comes out.

I've heard rumors this was supposed to arrive Q1 2k3 and that it is going to be a Criterion. Does anyone have any facts concerning this release?
