This just in from OFFICIAL sources: GLADIATOR: EXTENDED EDITION 3-DISC SET Featuring "all-new, widescreen extended version of the film including 17 minutes of additional scenes" AND the original theatrical cut on the first disc!!! No director's commentary is availible but there is a trivia track. The two seconds discs will be packed with extras: DISC TWO: "Behind the Scenes" DISC THREE: "Image and Design" Too many extras to list! (There is an "abandoned sequences" featurette on disc three that sounds cool.) Also included is a booklet that looks attractive, but the advertisement doesn't mention exactly what it is. The packaging is NICE, with an very classy cover image that doesn't duplicate the theatrical poster or previous DVD release. I prefer it, honestly. The case is a black digipack, with a sandy-colored inset movie still for cover art. Sweeeet. The extended cut, to repeat, is 2hrs. 51min. minutes long and UNRATED. The price is listed as TBA. EDIT: If I sound a bit like a press release, it's because I love this movie so much that I'm pretty much repeating the the advertisement I saw without much loss of hyperbole. This looks like a great DVD release and I am definately down for a pre-order.
