Trainspotting: The Definitive Edition in R1?

Anyone know if there are plans for this DVD to be released in Region 1? The movie was pretty popular here, but I don't think I want to shell out just for the bare bones DVD that we have. I liked it a lot, and I'm wondering if anyone has heard anything about the new one.

Disney (mirmax) controls the title here. that's what we are counting on.. Who knows. To think, Criterion released this on LD.

Yeah, this alone makes me want to upgrade my Daewoo to a Malata, just so I can watch anamorphic WS PAL discs.

i actually bought the canadian dvd last year (better than the u.s. release) and last week purchased the definitive edition from amazon.co.uk. i haven't received it yet though.

i doubt that the u.s. will see it released here.

Maybe is 28 DAYS LATER (which I highly recommend) does well, it will get Miramax a bit more sparked about Boyle. It's sad they can't see how they can milk fans of a movie like this with another edition. (I know, one shouldn't beg for such treatment from the studios, but I'm in covet mode...)

I've been waiting for this title for almost 5 years now, and I'm not holding my breath for it anytime soon. Although jamieoni might be correct in sayint that if 28 Days Later does well here, then maybe there will be a market for Trainspotting. Let's hope so, but like I said I'm not holding my breath.

Will there be an SE of Trainspotting?

Trainspotting Criterion to be released?

Trainspotting DTS Special Edition

Trainspotting SE?

Considering a foreign Special Edition does not at all mean a special edition will be released in America, and time and time again this has been proven - don't hold your breath.
