I've seen this rumoured in a couple of places; is it true, and, if so, why??
I really haven't heard anything about this... where did you see this mentioned?
The major e-tailers still have it listed as 15/01/02.
MY TOP 20 OF 2001
Dont know but check out this thread on DVD-Depot :
Strange that neither DVDFile or The Digital Bits have picked up on this if its true.
Quote from the thread you pointed us to:
Do you suppose this means that they WILL release the DC to theaters first? I always felt it would be odd to release the DC in theaters then release it to video a month later. So maybe the change in the date has some thing to do with this.
Could mean it's taking longer then expected to do up the effects for the R-rated cut. Be nice if David Prior could pop in and post about this...
Mark McLeod posted this in another thread:
Yes, these are bruises from fighting. Yes, I am comfortable with that. I am enlightened.
Will the Directors Cut have a DTS track?
Call me cynical, but it smells like (marketing)
"Buy Gift Set in December, then buy Vista in May."
If the release dates were only ~a month apart, most people would wait, but now.......?
Are they still going to release the regular version in December though??
I'm waiting for the 3-disc version in January.
I doubt this will increase sales. The people who want the DC will simply wait.
If they are delaying so they can do it right, I have no problem with this.
If a movie is not available in OAR, than it might as well not be available at all.
The way I understand it is that Disney wanted both the directors cut and theatrical cut to be done for the December 4th date. This wasn't possible so they announced the January 2002 date for the Vista Series disc. Then there were some delays in getting everything ready including Bay's new cut of the film and an insane amount of extras (according to David Prior). While they were still hopeful the disc could make it's date they decided to push it back. Part of the reason for this could be that they were already losing sales of the DC untill after Xmas. Then orders on the December disc were down due to people waiting for the DC Vista release so they used the fact that there MAY have been a need for a delay on it to push it back to what appears to be the month of May 2002.
So apparently the Directors Cut Vista Series will now be released sometime after Jan 15. The disc's producer David Prior gave a quote to DVDBlokes.com claiming that Bay wants it out ASAP though so the new May date might not stick.
As for DTS on the DC Vista Series cut. I hope so but only David Prior or someone at Buena Vista/Disney would know that info. Maybe someone will pop in and let us know.
At Amazon.com they have the soundtracks listed at 5.1, 2.0, and a neat feature, a 5.1 Sound effects track! But Still wish it had DTS.
I thought the 3-disc version wasn't slated to come out until January anyway? What's the official name of the 3-disc version? I didn't think it was the director's cut.

Shit, I don't know... maybe Pearl Harbor: Vista Series?
Also, the Vista Series set will indeed have DTS (as stated by the press release).

When I was out in LA for the HTF meet, I spoke with some folks from Disney and they said that Michael Bay had not completed his Director's Cut of the film yet. I'm sure that this is the reason for the delay.
