Master and Commander: April 20th

From DVDAnswers:
We've managed to get hold of an advertisement containing the official release date for the region one release of Master and Commander which stars Russell Crowe and Paul Bettany. I'm afraid that we've yet to receive the official announcement from Fox, so we can't reveal the full disc specs to you yet. We do however expect the disc to include a featurette on sound design, a HBO first look featurette, a In The Wake Of O'Brian featurette as well as twenty minutes of deleted scenes. Plenty more features should be included though - and hopefully a stonking DTS track! Naturally, we'll try and bring you the full list of specs in the coming days. For now though, we've attached the aforementioned advertisement below:

I think it's getting a re-release due to the Oscar momentum. You might still catch it.

Home Theater Forum's recent chat with Fox confirmed that M & C will be getting two separate releases (a single-disc and a 2-disc a la Red Dragon).

Hopefully we won't have to wait a few months after the 1-disc comes out to get the 2-disc set.

This is definitely getting a re-release to capitalize on its 10 Oscar nominations. Do yourself a favor and see it on the big screen.

Thanks for the info - I guess I'll be waiting for the 2-disc version.

I am very excited for this, this was one of my favorite movies from last year. I hope there is a 2 disc edition, because the more the merrier for this movie I got to say. Love it.

I'm glad Fox got the rights to do this on DVD. I shudder at what Miramax would have released....

Any idea why Peter Weir doesn't do audio commentaries? He's one of my favorite directors, and I'd love to hear a commentary from him.

Looks good (the 2-disc set, that is!). I also missed this one in theaters, unfortunately.

Oh my...that looks truly appetizing! Looks like they've learned from the LOTR sets.

I like how the single-disc version is inferior in every way (including the fact that it's full-screen only )

Very nice set! I am very excited for this. Not only did I love the movie, but I thought the audio mix was top-notch. Can't wait to hear this at the Gazeebo Googleplex.
