Has there been any news released about this? Release date, extras, etc.?
It's coming out in Europe soon, probably later this year here. MGM seems to be working on a 6 month delay for the US for some reason
According to the British Board of Film Classification, the Great Escape DVD will have the following extras (I'm not sure what they all are, but anyway):
"The Great Escape - Special Features" 131m 21s
00:24:58:17 | A Man Called Jones The Real Virgil Hilts
00:50:44:24 | Great Escape: The Untold Story
00:09:33:17 | Great Escape: The Untold Story Additional Interviews
00:01:02:24 | The Great Escape Heroes Underground
00:10:11:24 | The Great Escape: Heroes Under Ground Act 1
00:10:07:24 | The Great Escape: Heroes Under Ground Act 2
00:08:24:23 | The Great Escape: Heroes Under Ground Act 3
00:08:04:23 | The Great Escape: Heroes Under Ground Act 4
00:04:41:00 | The Great Escape: Heroes Under Ground Act 5
00:00:56:01 | The Great Escape: Heroes Under Ground Close
00:02:33:18 | The Great Escape
Of course, the US version may have different (or more) extras, but this is a good guide.
There's an SE coming? Crud, I just bought the current edition a few weeks ago! Oh well, at least it was only $10.
This is what dvddebate lists as extras for the UK R2:
- Audio Commentary with Cast and Crew
- Steve McQueen Featurette: 'An American Icon'
- 'History vs Hollywood' documentary
- 'The True Story of The Great Escape' documentary
- Trivia Subtitle Track
- Theatrical Trailer
- An as-yet-unrevealed Region 2 Exclusive Feature
"Region 2 Exclusive Feature" sounds interesting...
Iain there is now another extra listed on 28/3 at the BBFC which may well be the R2 UK exclusive
THE GREAT ESCAPE SPECIAL EDITION - UMBRO.COM - THE WORLD CUP FROM THE TUNNEL AND THE TERRACE at 5m 19s
As this is Football related not sure how relevant it will be overseas.
Also have you seen at www.play.com there is a special world cup package which includes a large Union Flag ! for use in cheering on England at the World Cup this summer. This would tie in nicely with the extra.
Michaeldvd in Australia now have a copy of the MGM press release listing extras. R4 is out a few weeks after R2 but is likely to be cheaper.
Is this the same audio commentary as on the Criterion LD? That one even had the late director John Sturges.
Is this World Cup thing for real?
Can anyone tell me the connection between this movie and soccer (football)?
