I'm not surprised this is coming out. The original release was a little sparse in terms of extras content. Hopefully, my local video store will carry this so I can compare it to the 1-disc and decide if it's worth purchasing.
Hmm. While many expected this, I didn't. I took Ang Lee at his word when he said it was a film he didn't want to ruin with too many extras, commentary, etc., so I thought the current release fit that fine. I still don't own it though.
Universal Studios Home Video have announced the HD DVD release of Brokeback Mountain (Collector’s Edition) for 23rd January 2007 priced at $34.98 SRP. Winner of three Academy Awards®, including Best Director, Ang Lee’s gripping drama comes to HD DVD in collector’s edition form on the same day as the standard definition DVD release.
A HD DVD / DVD Combo release Brokeback Mountain is presented in 1080P 1.85:1 Widescreen with English, French (DDP5.1) and Spanish (DDP2.0) audio and subtitle options on Side A, and in standard definition on Side B. The full array of special features expected on this release are still TBC, but we do know you can expect all-new bonus features, never-before-seen footage and collectible packaging (including postcards).

Ya know, for a movie that generated SO much talk last year, you would think a couple people could be rounded up for a commentary...that this could be a three disc set with the original motion picture soundtrack...that this edition would have all the bells and whistles known to man on it.
I'll grumble about it, but I'll be there. One of my favorite movies.
