    amazon has it listed as 2-disc set.
    ken cranes also says it's going to be the special edition.
    didn't digital bits report a few months ago that coppola's american zoetrope is working on the special edition of the film?

    I saw the same thing on the net.
    Paramount has only announced it as a bare bones edition so
    what's up with this then.
    Will we see this movie as a special edition after all.
    Please let it be so.
    Pretty please.... [​IMG]

    I don't really understand the appeal of including Hearts of Darkness on the Apocalypse Now disc, as requested by posters here and on alt.video.dvd.
    Don't get me wrong: I'd love to see Hearts come out on DVD. It's a great film in its own right. But I'd rather have it be a separate release: that way, those who want it as a companion piece to Apocalypse Now can pick it up... and those who don't want it can ignore it and don't have to pay extra for Apocalypse.
    Personally, I think the idea of "modular" special editions is very cool. Maybe it's just me.

    Well, I LOVE the idea of having Heart of Darkness on the Apocalypse disc - what a great SP ED that would be.

    Don't forget that Hearts Of Darkness is a film in it's own right. It's not 'just' a documentary. There could be heaploads of issues with getting onto DVD.

    I'm quite sure it's on two discs because the film is so long. AFAIK, the only extra is a trailer.

    Every advertisement I see says it is a 2 disc set, but people who already got it say it is on only one disc.
    I wish it were two disks. I would love to see the deleted scenes from the 5 hour workprint that were not included in Redux.
    And does Paramount also own the rights to Hearts of Darkness?

    ANR will be a 2 DVD set when it's released in Germany in spring 2002. What will be on the second DVD is not yet known.
