HellBoy Director's Cut - Confirmation and Cover Art.

We have some more official details regarding the upcoming Director's Cut of HellBoy:

We finally have official confirmation that Guillermo Del Torro's HellBoy will be released with additional footage, this year, and quite a bit before November 30th.

We know for certain that the HellBoy Director's Cut DVD set will contain an all-new cut of the movie, a new audio commentary and an exclusive Excerpt From The Diary Of Grigori Rasputin.

A HellBoy DVD Gift Set will be released on the same day and will include the Director's Cut DVDs and an exclusive limited edition HellBoy figurine.
You can find the full article and a large shot of the Director's Cut cover art here.

Great news! However, it doesn't look like it will be a 3-disc as was rumored.

I was going to double dip, but now that I know a release date, I'll probably hold off.

Hells yeah. I'll double dip because it looks like it's going to be just the movie while all the extras are going to be on the regular release.

I'll give this a rent to see what the DC does for the movie. I didn't like the theatrical version enough to even think about buying it.

Right. Also listed on the "cover-art" site:
Judging by the artwork, and from snippets that we've heard (which probably isn't ideal grounds for theory), this set looks as if it will be a single DVD, with just the Director's Cut and miniscule extra features. The 2-disc HellBoy Special Edition, that we recently managed to get our mits on, is chock-a-block full of extra features; so this new DC looks as if it will just be an accompanyment to the SE and not the rumoured 3-disc set.
So if you want the big extras, looks like a mandatory double-dip is in order here for the true fans.

Hey, at least it's not like the Underworld - SE and the Underworld - UR DC.

All over the gift set like white on rice. I'm pretty sure that Sideshow Collectibles will be doing it (the statue).

I think I'm just gonna get the theatrical release if the director's cut doesn't have any special features. Plus, it'll only be $19.99 + Tax - $10 MIR at FYE. I can't say the same thing for the director's cut.

If this DC version is indeed a bare-bones type of thing, Del Torro should have just made the whole thing a 3-disc Deluxe Edition. But then again, the 2-disc SE is targeting J6P. Because why package the TC with the DC on the first release. Who would ever watch the TC? Same thing goes for the LOTR releases, except this time it appears that the horde of special features will be on the initial release rather than the latter.

I get the feeling the DC will eventually get delayed, cause they always seem to
