Today I discovered a number of upcoming R2 titles which should give some indication of the contents to be found on their eventual R1 counterparts. The films in question are: 1) ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST [2-Disc Set] to be released on 10/14/02 Special Features ·Audio commentary ·Trailer ·'Making Of' documentary (50 mins) ·Additional scenes ·Interactive menu ·Scene access 2) AMADEUS – DIRECTOR’S CUT [2-Disc Set] to be released on 10/28/02 Special Features ·Audio commentary ·Trailers ·'Making Of Amadeus' documentary (50 mins) ·Additional scenes (25 mins) ·Interactive menu ·Scene access 3) TRUE ROMANCE – DIRECTOR’S CUT [2-Disc Set] to be released on 11/04/02 Special Features ·3 audio commentaries ·Trailer ·Deleted scenes ·Alternative ending ·2 featurettes ·Interactive menu ·Scene access 4) SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN [2-Disc Set] to be released on 11/04/02 Special Features ·Audio commentary ·'Musicals, Great Musicals' programme (90 mins) ·'What A Glorious Feeling' feature (30 mins) ·'The Songwriter's Review With Freed And Brown' feature (60 mins) ·'You Are My Lucky Star' out-take ·Stills gallery ·Scoring stage options ·Singin' Inspirations (text feature) ·Trailers ·Interactive menu ·Scene access 5) UNFORGIVEN [2-Disc Set] to be released on 11/11/02 Special Features ·2 audio commentaries ·Trailer ·More to be confirmed! All the above titles are owned by Warner Bros., and they are also planning two separate box sets of Hammer horror films, which should also prove interesting – that is, if they will include supplementary materials to match (or perhaps better) the R1 versions: Box Set 1: THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN HORROR OF DRACULA THE MUMMY Box Set 2: THE DEVIL RIDES OUT HORROR OF FRANKENSTEIN SCARS OF DRACULA BLOOD FROM THE MUMMY'S TOMB LUST FOR A VAMPIRE The titles in the second box set, incidentally, were all released on R1 DVD by Anchor Bay as Special Editions. I already own THE DEVIL RIDES OUT and the 2-Disc Limited Edition sets of SCARS OF DRACULA and BLOOD FROM THE MUMMY'S TOMB, all of which are excellent. Warner’s R1 THE MUMMY, we know, was disappointing for a variety of reasons but, hopefully, the Frankenstein and Dracula films will fare better when their time comes (which should be around Halloween). It appears, however, that Christopher Lee has declined to participate in these two releases and I pray that Warner will persuade him to reconsider his position for the R2 discs, something which they have already done on their DVD edition of THE WICKER MAN!
