    I was under the impression that a SE for this film was in the works. But I have just seen that Dracula is going to be released as a Superbits title. Does this mean that there will be two future DVD releases of the film in the near future, or is there only going to be a Superbits release. I'm a little confused, to say the least. Can anyone offer some clarity on the issue?

    Superbit in 2001 produced by Columbia Tri-Star Home Video, approved by Francis Ford Coppola.
    Special Edition in 2002 produced by Zoetrope Studios and Francis Ford Coppola to be distributed by Columbia Tri-Star Home Video.

    Thanks Rutger. I wonder how many people are going to picking up both releases. I already have the current edition, which features an incredible soundtrack. With the recent so-so reviews coming in from WSR about Superbits AFO and TFE, I think that I'll probably wait for the SE. Unless of course, Superbits succeeds in living up to it's hype.

    I love this movie but I think I'll wait for the SE also...

    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

    I'll be waiting for the SE if it ever comes out. I have the current version which is excellent A/V wise. I'll be passing up the superbit unless there is a mindblowing improvement in A/V quality.
