    Dreamworks is scheduled to release the recent hit "The Ring", starring Naomi Watts, on March 4th. The only known feature so far is that it will include a DTS track on it.

    Wow, that has to be one of the fastest theater to DVD releases ever, about 4 months. I've seen a screener DVD and the picture quality is outstanding, hopefully it's the same transfer.

    Looking forward to owning this, but I'm almost tempted to buy it on VHS instead...

    RINGU will be released seperately on the same day with an anamorphic widescreen transfer, DD 5.1 audio in the original Japanese language and a trailer.

    I can honestly say that this movie absolutely, positively gave me the creepin' heebie-geebies! I saw it in the theater as a matinee and there was only one other person there, about 6 rows back from me. I have never had another motion picture affect me the way The Ring did. Very disturbing [​IMG] , and I'm 45 years old!
    Just my .02 ...

    Unfortunately, the only extras on this disc are a featurette titeled," The Mystery of the Ring" and the trailer for the Japanese film Ringu. Also, apparently, the "Ring" tape inself seen in the movie is supposed to be longer, with more creepy footage to it. The disc will still contain anamorphic widescreen and Dolby Digital and DTS tracks. The cover art can be seen at several other sites right now.

    Just from what has been heard the "Ring" tape will be extended slightly and add more creepy and disturbing footage to it. I also thought that it would include a supplement or at least a deleted scene with this feature. The specs don't list this at all, so its possible it may or may not be included. Personally, I dont see it making much of a difference since all of the footage in the tape concerned parts of the movie that the tape was based on, or that were things that had to do with the story
    I can't imagine what would be put in that would further enhance the story. It may just be a rumor, but who knows.

    I was suprised by the lack of supplement, especially from a film that was well received at the box office, by critics and audiences, and from Dreamworks. Their are no commentaries, no making of or documentaries, no other trailers, storyboards, interviews, or anything. The movie also came to DVD rather quickly, which makes one wonder if their will be another release of it. But seeing as how Dreamworks rarely if ever has re-released a title again on DVD, we will probably have to live with what we get.

    Can someone that is familar with the original series clear something up for me?

    I am bit confused in the order I should watch them. The one that confusing me is Rasen/The Spiral. It claims to be a sequel to Ringu. Then what is Ring 2? I know Ring 0 is a prequel but should will it spoil it if I watch it first or should I wacth them the order they came out?

    Thanks for any help.
