    According to DVDFile, The Fox film "The Transporter" is not getting a DTS track. Looking at the trailers on this one, it would have been a prime candidate for the ol' dts treatment.

    Is Fox not supporting DTS on their DVD now?

    Any info?

    Thanks
    Troy

    The Transporter wasn't exactly an A-list title. It was a pretty run-of-the-mill action flick. Those kinds of movies don't usually get a DTS tracks.

    Not to mention it tanked at the box office. I imagine Fox is trying to get this one out at a minimal cost.

    I wouldn't describe that as "plenty of extras" Those sound like the kind of extras that a lot of non-blockbusters have.

    I would have picked this DVD up with a DTS track included, but if there isn't one, I'll have to see if it comes out at a price that I just cannot pass up.

    I saw the film during its theatrical run, and I was not blown away by it (actually I thought that it was a fairly poor movie), but I'd consider the DVD if it ends up being a good disk.
