    I've been reading rumours that it's coming out sometime in April. I hope it's true! [​IMG]

    April would be nice. I missed it in theaters so hopefully it gets a firm release date soon.

    Any news on this? I'm guessing that the April date has been pushed, otherwise we would've already seen an announcement.

    May 20 would be sweet. I'm guessing that they were waiting until Oscar noms before making any announcements, although I'm probably one of the few here who felt that it deserved a few nominations.

    I really liked this one, although not as much as Tykwer's previous films. It seemed to get dumped into theatres though, barely any advertising after its initial release. I was surprised when it showed up at my art house. Thought it was forgotten.

    Hey Michael

    Where did you see this?

    Man, that still seems like an eternity. Especially for someone that never was able to even see the movie [​IMG]

    Have there been any early reviews of this disc yet? I watched the R4 Rental version earlier today and can't wait to own it. I loved it more on DVD than in the theatre (I remember having a really long day before viewing it the last time). Has Tykwer made this a SE like his other films?

    Haven't seen any reviews yet, but I'm not too crazy about the cover art:

    That is a terrible cover. Let's hope the focus was on the transfer.

    The cover art for Heaven sucks. If you look closely at it, the cover art makes the film look like an action film.

    Supposedly the disc contains all the same extras that the German DVD has (audio commentary, deleted scenes, and what not). I just wonder how the subtitles will be presented since a quarter of the film was in English and the other three quarters in Italian.

    You're right Matt, gee look at all the Helicopters and the 2 running from an explosion. Bad art.

    Oh well its the content that matters. The transfer from the rental R4 version was great.
