I just received this disc...do these Lion's Gate editions come with a booklet? If so, I didn't receive one. Thanks.
How does the new Cube DVD look?It looks fantastic. A definite step-up from the previous non-anamorphic DVD by Trimark years ago. It also includes a nice Dolby Digital 5.1 track which is also a step-up from the 2.0 track on the old release too.
The DVD includes a brand new commentary from Vincenzo Natali, three deleted scenes, a bunch of storyboards/conceptual art, trailers (for Cube and Cube 2), and a new four minute interview with Nicole de Boer.
The new DVD does miss out on the following features the previous DVD had: the old commentary track (with director/co-writer Vincenzo Natali, co-writer Andre Bijelic, and actor David Hewlett) over both the film and the three deleted scenes. It also misses out on three bonus trailers (Slam, The Curve, and Carnival of Souls) and some additional set design sketches. Why they didn't include the old audio commentary track is beyond me, but this is a fine DVD release.
it was only let down by a couple of very weak performances.
