    I'm a big fan of DWW, but have just now gotten around to listening to the Costner / Wilson commentary on the recent DWW SE release by MGM. Is this a new commentary? DVDFile indicates it is:

    I have the Image and the new SE versions and though I've not done comparisons, I believe the commentary's old, with just new commentary recorded for the added footage. It makes logistical sense, first of all, and it was stated in one of the reviews I read.

    I did comparisons between the old DVD and the new, and those parts of the movie that appear on both clearly use the same commentary. Only the parts that apply specifically to the extended verison of the film are new - the rest DOES "regurgitate" the old commentary. The folks at DVD File don't do a lot of fact-checking - they occasionally put out some odd and erroneous remarks like this...

    Bump.

    Thanks for the more precise info, Colin. I had the same question as OP Dave in connection with considering sale of the Image (and just hanging on to the MGM SE) in preparation for a BD release. (Now the remaining big questions have to do with what supps get ported over and whether Fox will use branching to include both cuts of the picture.)
