    What happened to this release for R1? I held off buying the initial dvd set because the director had said a new 2 disc special edition is in the works.

    I'd think it would probably get a release sometime next year. Probably right before RE2 gets released in theaters.

    I think it turned into a Superbit release. But the 2 discer will probably come out to help promote RE2

    Maybe it'll be a 2-disc SuperBit, just like the Charlie's Angels release before Full Throttle came out.

    Any news on this?

    RE2 will be out in September so I guess the "Deluxe" edition will be released in August.

    Maybe it will be unrated. I heard that it was trimmed for an R rating.

    I don't think that it will be unrated. The director deliberately kept the film light on gore (for a zombie film, anyway). I heard that they were going for a PG-13, actually. They'd have to add a lot to the original cut of this film to not get an R.

    I hope they come out with the special edition soon. I've been holding out on this one for almost two years in anticipation of a better release.

    They could still go for the 'Unrated because it was never submitted for a rating' route like most "unrated" editions do today.

    I really doubt that there's anything in the new version of Underworld (for example) that would make it NC-17.

    On the audio commentary of the old edition of Resident Evil Michelle Rodriguez complains about the lack of gore and I think that the director says that there isn't any because it was shot for an R rating.

    I'll be happy if they just add the (already existing) second audio commentary and the featurettes and the alternate ending from the German edition.

    When the Superbit emerges from its cocoon in all its triple-dipping glory, then I will buy it.

    Picture might be the same but the DTS sound track it better, hey has Tristar ever put a DTS track on a NON-Superbit DVD? DTS the the only reason I buy Superbit 90% of the time.

    I thought that the picture quality was awesome on the Superbit. And the DTS was very nice too.


    I got rid of the regular release before I got my HDTV, so I can't say if the picture is the same or not, but the DTS was enough for me.

    I meant when the Superbit DELUXE emerges from its cocoon. Sorry. Forgot that deluxe part. It's deluxe, son! Deluxe!

    Well, to be honest, the german edition leaves nothing for me to be desired(technical- and extra-wise). Resident Evil isn't a movie I need an audio commentary of, not to mention 2 of them. [​IMG]

    Any news?

    If they're going to release it in time for the sequel then there should be an announcement soon.

    There's another "create your own poster" contest up for RE2, fyi. Winner gets to be turned into a zombie. Not really. But the contest is real.

    The only thing that the movie lacks is enough gore imho.If there is no longer cut of the movie then i see no point in upgrading my superbit version.I always had the idea that there was more explicit violence that was cut from the movie.Is this just an urban myth or what?
