While this was posted in the wrong forum, this info is stunning. Three audios and four commentaries, are you kidding me? I'm also dying to see what the alternate endings; could they have been even more depressing? This is unreal. I wasn't a huge fan of the movie, but how could you pass this one up?
There is a god of DVD, and his name is David Fincher. He'll have done six commentary tracks on two DVDs, that's a record that should live for some time. Now if only we could get a SE for my favorite Fincher movie, The Game.

I bought Magnolia on DVD and inside it had a form with up coming New Line releases and the Se7en pack was on there with no date. I could order it for 29.99.
The box is simple but cool. Black with Se7ev written on it with the scratch marks on it. This was before the release date was announced and I went to stores asking if they had a date but they all looked at me like I had a pimple on my nose...which I did. jk

STILL waiting for Back to the Future Trilogy on DVD!

You cannot order it from the order form. I called one day and they said that were not setup yet. Then I called a few days later and they said that the order form was for Video stores only.

The announce date for the disc has bumped. It was supposed to be this Monday, 10/23. We'll see when Warner can roll this thing out. It is supposed to be released December 19th along with New Line's The Cell.
