    I was looking on Koreandvds.com and came across this:

    http://www.koreandvds.com/dvddetail.html?id=23993

    They list some of the specs as:

    - All New Digital Transfer
    - Soundtrack remastered in DTS 6.1ES and Dolby Digital EX
    - Original Theatrical Trailer
    - Interactive Motion Menus
    - Behind the scenes Documentary "The Magnificent Rebel"
    - Original Screenplay (Reprint 176 Pages)- in English
    - Mini Lobby Cards
    - English and Chinese Subtitles

    It just recently was released on Sept. 24 and it appears to be all Region.

    I looked on DVDasian.com and saw this version:

    http://www.dvdasian.com/cgi-bin/dvdasian/12718.html

    This is a 2-Disc set also but has the "original" and "remastered" versions, with DD Mono and DD 5.1 respectively. The specs and packaging differ from the otehr version, and this one is Region 0 also.

    Can anyone comment on these two releases?

    I saw this over at CD-WOW when I was looking up the Shawshank SE. This is one my favorite McQueen movies, and Dustin Hoffman is wonderful as well. Anyone else checked this disc out?

    ETA: Ouch. $43 before shipping @ Play-Asia! I'll hold off on this one until I get a little more incentive to throw the cash down.

    Can anyone confirm whether it is Region 0 or not? I probably won't pick it up for a while, but it would be nice to know ahead of time.

    Why is it a 2-disc?

    I love this movie, but is the 2-disc version a substantial improvement over the R1 and R2's (which I have) transfers/audio?

    Thanks to a little coupon help (props to MarcoBiscotti!), I went ahead and ordered the set. However, Play-Asia, still indicates that it's a pre-order, although the release date was almost a month ago. They have a separate indicator for out-of-stock, so I'm wondering if anyone has any idea on what could be holding it up.

    This title is available now. I received it this week from another retailer and the movie is spread over two discs.
