I was looking to buy The Last Samurai, and noticed there are two editions (that I could find). The 2 disc R1 version, and the R3 "Limited Edition Premium Package" version. Does anyone know if there are any other versions out there? If not, is there any difference between these two in regards to picture quality and audio?

Region 2 has it 2 disk, with a chopstick as bonus

the r3 has no burned in subs for the jap speaking part
but the packaging is nice
there was some r4 with a t-shirt but I think that was only a preorder deal?
kumar j: you mean the R2J or R2 EU (pal)?
edit: looking at your location I presume the r2j :)

R3HK has a set of postcards. otherwise, it looks all the same (compared to R1) to me. no insert, tho. the same thing happened to Matrix Revolutions.

Yes it's the Japan version and the chopsticks are now almost gone.You get the plain version only.But like Kill Bill all the gore is uncut! :)
Saw it last at the Final Battle scene and there is plenty of :johnwoo:

Is there a lot of Japanese speak that I would miss out on the translation of in the movie to justify the extra battle scenes and gore?
Is there a version with the extra footage and subtitles for the Japanese dialogue?
