CHICAGO specs: Where's the rest?

From DVDANSWERS.COM:

At a time when crimes of passion result in celebrity headlines, nightclub sensation Velma Kelly and spotlight-seeking Roxie Hart both find themselves sharing space on Chicago's famed Murderess Row! They also share Billy Flynn, the town's slickest lawyer with a talent for turning notorious defendants into local legends. But in Chicago, there's only room for one legend! You will be able to own Chicago from the 19th August for around $29.99. The disc will comprise of the following:


1.85:1 Anamorphic Widescreen
English Dolby Digital 5.1 Track
French Dolby Digital 5.1 Track
Deleted Scenes
Behind-the-Scenes Featurette

---
I don't mean to be ungrateful, but where's the rest? VH1 had an awesome one hour documentary and I know the director/cast should have something to say on a commentary? The movie wins Best Picture and this is the version we get? I'll still buy it, but I wish there was 4x this!!!

I was hoping for a loaded 2-disc set, like we got for Moulin Rouge.

I'll still buy this the second it comes out, and will happily upgrade if an SE follows.

I thought this was supposed to be 2 discs. Where is all that rehersal footage, where is the performances from the oscars, where's the commentary, I thought that disney was hard at work for this dvd.

I'd be okay with that, actually, but IMO, August is hardly "rushing" it out.

Jeez, you'd think we could at least have gotten DTS if that's all that's really on there.

I also assumed Rob Marshall doesn't have enough of an ego yet to turn down doing a commentary, but maybe he just doesn't like them for some reason.

No offense to DVDAnswers.com, but can we trust them?

Anyway, the most important things for this DVD would be:
the fully finished version of the deleted scene "Whatever happened to Class", video and audio quality.

The CHarlie Rose interview would be nice, but Richard Gear dominated a good bit of it with political talk so I'm not unhappy if they don't include that.

Right now you can get a DVD disc with some extras if you buy the soundtrack for $25. I might just do that and invent my own 2 disc set.

I've found them to be reliable in the past, but boy, would I love it if they were wrong this time!

this disc screams SE all the way.. for one, this movie deserves a dts track, commentary and more..

i wouldnt necessarily say the specs are unreliable, maybe just incomplete. i dont work for a studio (anyone wanna hook me up?) but ive always been curious at how long it takes a studio to finalize specs after a movie leaves the theatres. something tells me chicago's specs havent been finalized. i second the moulin rouge package/specs/box art

I expected to see this on there also. There would still be a good 40 mintues if they cut that part out.
