    Is that still going to be released? We haven't seen any specs yet, and deepdiscount and dvdempire don't have it listed, although they both have Usual Suspects on that day. I'm going to pre-order US, but I was also really wanting that Memento SE.

    Anyway, if anybody can chime in and re-assure me, please do so.

    I heard rumors that it has been delayed, but I don't know what the new date is or if that is even true. Does anyone know what the bonus features will be?

    Dvdfile and Dvdshrine.

    I suppose he meant to say May 21st as it is the correct date.

    Does anyone no what features will be included or have a text of the announcement? Besides the obvious like commentary I would love a feature that allowed you to view the movie forward as you could in the canadian release. Yes I know the way the movie was intended to be viewed was backwards but I would love to watch it forwards as even with multiple viewing there are probably things I am still missing.

    Sorry guys, I meant to say the 21st of May, I just made a mistake in typing. Please don't go crazy on me, mistakes are made sometimes.

    Maybe a SuperBit Deluxe set??
    All mid to high profile discs should at least be like this, with DTS or DTS-ES too! [​IMG]

    I'm usually not the guy who picks up multiple copies of the same movie. But if this one has a great commentary or a really great documentary I'll probably pick it up. This is one of my two favorite movies of the last year.

    I'm guessing that the second disc may have the chronologically edited version of the film, like the R2 disc has. (Actually, the R2 disc had the entire film stored on the disc twice, and yet had fairly good picture quality!)

    As for DTS, I doubt it. The film doesn't really push the limits of its Dolby 5.1 track, so I think that DTS would be superfluous.

    Oh is that how they did it without pauses? I did wonder 'cos my Canadian version is very annoying with its reverse process version.

    There was talk of a commentary on the UK version. It's only this that holds me from getting it. I guess the U.S. one might be really excellent but I'm not sure there can be much more left that Chris Nolan wants to say about the movie...

    The region 2 disc never had an audio commentary - the distributors couldn't get the rights in time, apparently.

    I'm presuming that Nolan's note covered script will be on there too seen as it was on the R2 version. This seems to be an extra he likes doing as Following had his script presented as an alternate angle.
    The only way I'd upgrade is to get commentary tracks. I know the rumoured R2 one was supposed to be Nolan and the cast. Hopefully that was actually recorded.

    I would like a commentary track (or two) and a chronological edit. They can keep the "HBO first look" type promo material.

    I believe this is one of those titles that I won't mind purchasing more than once. This sure does bode well as a really special edition.
