    Just over 2 weeks left until this comes out!!
    Click the link for Baz Luhrmann Fan Madness!!
    And Here for Inside View!!
    Details for the 5th Disc "Behind the Red Curtain" posted below (from Digital Eyes Site):
    "Behind the Red Curtain" - This special feature DVD
    includes: Red Curtain Cinema (3 levels of branching, about
    20 pieces of video); House of Iona; "One Day I'll Fly
    Away" Video; Final Script (June 2000) and DVD-Rom
    features containing: 5 Versions of the "Strictly Ballroom"
    Script; "Strictly Ballroom" Comic Book; "Romeo + Juliet"
    Script; Dubsy's Dirt; Toulouse Tonight; Credits and
    Gratitudes."
    My hope is that DE is mistaken, I want the "Dubsy's Dirt" and "Toulouse Tonight" web videos as regular segments on the dvd - NOT as ROM extras!!

    I have the bonus disc in my possession; the Talouse Tonight and other web features ARE rom only.

    What's that ad say about R+J being a 2 disc set? The SE is have is only 1. I hope I am not missing out.

    I like the uniformity of the new packaging as well.

    Is there going to be any way for fans who've already bought the films to get the fifth disk? :-/

    Bah. It's always the fans that get it in the neck with "later" boxsets like this. In my wife's case, it's not just a matter of rebuying one film (like a later special edition), it's three. Bah.

    I have avoided purchasing any of these titles separately for just this scenario. Can't wait for the Red Curtain box to fall into my hot little hands. [​IMG]

    I already have all three films in my collection. I'm not buying it twice. Why can't FOX do what Universal did with their Jurassic Park set and have the box and extra disc available to purchase via mail? If they did us this service, there would be MORE INCENTIVE by appreciative customers to buy more FOX product. As it stands right now, I resent that they expect us to purchase them again for the extra disc.[​IMG]

    How big is the chance that MOULIN ROUGE will come with a fixed DTS track?

    And what the HELL is on this second disc for R+J? DAMMIT! Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

    Thanks,

    Seb

    This set was talked about at the same time as, or even prior to, the release of the DVD's contained within it. I first heard about the box around the release of the Moulin Rouge DVD, and I believe that the DVD's for Strictly Ballroom and the SE of Romeo & Juliet were both released after that. And with each release was more discussion of the "Red Curtain" box. So everyone who wanted the extra disc could have waited for the box if they were a bit patient.

    There was a "red box trilogy" mooted before Moulin Rouge's release, but it got delayed & delayed. There were ZERO details about it except for it containing all three films.

    There was zero concrete info - why wait for something that may or may not come out? I still say it's the fans getting it in the neck over this. FOX are usually really good for dealing with fans as well :-(

    Saw this on the shelf today at my local mega-retailer. Price was $48.88. Romeo & Juliet appears to be the recent single-disc SE, not a new 2-disc version as shown in the above ad. Sticker on the front of the package says "$5 Rebate by Mail for current owners of Moulin Rouge."

    I got my copy of the box set today, and sad to report that Malcolm is right - Romeo + Juliet is a single disc (although it has presumably been packaged especially - there's no barcode on this sleeve).
    In fact, the set is a little disappointing (at least, from a design point of view). Although there's been some attempt to present a uniform look to the four discs, Moulin Rouge is in a digipack, and the others are in normal plastic cases. The sleeves aren't quite as they are depicted in the advert at the top of the thread: the version of Strictly Ballroom in the box set is identical to the currently available version, complete with shrink-wrap and security sticker.
    The Moulin Rouge disc has no barcode on the packaging, so presumably it's been made (or re-packaged) especially for this set.
    My box set came from a retailer who sources discs from Canada, so there's a chance that the US set will be different... and if the version of Romeo + Juliet in the US version is a two-disc version, then this puppy is going back to the farm!

    Jules, could you check DTS-sync-ness for Moulin Rouge? [​IMG]
    Thanks,
