    Can't wait!! Will definitely be picking up the Deluxe Edition! I found this film to be not only more faithful than the 1971 version but a better film in all aspects.

    I had a look at the back cover of the 2 disk version and it mentions the theatrical trailer on disk 1 (see davisdvd)

    The transfer for this film should look spectacular. Good thing Warner Bros has a good track record.

    So is the single disc just disc 1 of the double disc set?

    Is 5.1 EX really necessary? When I saw this at the local multiplex the rears were rarely used at all.

    Love how WHV releases BOTH SEs and regular versions the same day. No buying something and then getting an unpleasant surprise when a better version comes out unexpectedly 6 months later.

    I've gotta wait until the week of the 22nd. I preordered both from Amazon when C&TCF 2 disc & Polar Express 2 disc were $15.99 & $16.99 (both now up to $19.99) & took free shipping so they'll ship together. Chances are (as with most deluxe editions with single discs released same day) those prices will be way under B&M sales prices.

    Seems like I just saw this in the theater. How long has it been? This seems like a fairly quick flip from theater to dvd.
