    I noticed that this is being released in region 2 this week. Is there any word of a possible region 1 release in the near future?

    Special Features on the region 2 disc:

    * Over 2 hours of additional material!
    * Interviews with Terry Gilliam, Johnny Depp, Kieth Fulton and Louis Pepe
    * Deleted scenes
    * 2 alternative openings
    * Video portraits
    * Costume design and storyboards from 'The Man Who Killed Don Quixote'
    * Interactive menus
    * Scene selection.

    Has anyone purchased this as of yet?

    I think it's still playing in theaters. I know it was playing at the NuArt in LA last week. My guess would be R1 release in May or so.

    so I guess that this is better than the r2 as it was just a single disc or not ?

    Cheers

    What is the aspect ratio of this film?
    will it be 16x9?

    The UK version (which I reviewed here) was presented in 1.33:1 ratio. Since it seems that the producer / directors of the film had considerable input into the R2 version, there's no reason to suspect that this isn't their preferred ratio.

    The Facets email is very vague, but it doesn't mention anything that isn't on the R2 version. It's quite possible that the R1 version will have the same content, only spread across two DVD5s (or, if you're lucky, a DVD9 and a DVD5).

    I saw the filmmakers speak at the film's premiere here and they confirm that the 1.33:1 ratio is correct.

    I believe this was originally intended to be a behind-the-scenes documentary for the DVD release of The man Who Killed Don Quixote, so 1.33 sounds correct.
