    As I know there are a fan or two of Ford fairlane on the forum, I will post this, even though it is strictly a Norwegian release. Ford fairlane is coming on DVD in Norway. Na na na na na na.
    Sorry, I had to get the last bit out of my system... [​IMG]
    Not much extras, only the movie in anamorphic widescreen and Dolby digital 2.0 surround sound with a trailer.
    Some Norwegian DVD's have forced subtitles, but at least they are not dubbed, especially when they can argue that the release is exclusive or early, so I think it's a safe bet there will be forced, player generated subtitles, although there are no words on other languages.

    "...player generated subtitles... "

    ...there ain't no such animal!... a DVD player doesn't 'generate' anything,
    it simply 'reads' whatever 'bitstreams' are encoded on the DVD (be it movie, trailer, behind-the-scenes featurette, different soundtracks [PCM stereo, MPEG multi-channel, DD 2.0, DD 5.1, dts, etc.], subtitles [in different languages], whatever)...

    . . . Q.E.D. . . .

    Hate to rain on anyone's parade, but it's on the schedule to come out at about the same time in R4 as well... [​IMG]

    My sincere sympathies to my fellow HT brothers/sisters in Norway and Australia/New Zealand. Maybe they will cancel this title and you'll be able to spend your money on something from America that we're proud of.
