Me too, looks like only a single disc release depending on how long those features are.

Rypro 525 08-23-04 06:56 PM

i sure hope its a 2 disc release just because the movie is so long (159 minutes)

joshualane 08-23-04 07:35 PM

It's a 2-disc release. Cover-art available at the link:

Wish they would have stuck with the bronze tinted movie posters

pro-bassoonist 08-23-04 08:02 PM

simply ....BAD (cover art).....as usual.

I wish there was more, and I wish it was coming earlier. So it goes.

wastro 08-23-04 08:06 PM

Wow, such paltry extras for such a movie that was nothing short of a massive undertaking (or so I've heard). Go figure.

onebyone 08-23-04 08:11 PM

Hmm, I expected much, much more from thie disc. I am thinking an extra special super edition will appear down the road.

Jericho 08-23-04 08:26 PM

I'm a little surprised they waited until after the holidays. I guess Warner Brothers has a few other big releases coming out these holidays (Harry Potter comes to mind), but it can't help initial sales.

Where is the DTS track? I hope the initial release of Troy is a decent dvd. I am getting tired of studios releasing a crap first version then following up with a special edition.

The Ultimate Matrix Collection comes to mind as well...

Warner does not release titles in DTS.

The limited Warner releases that have been DTS, excluding the first five, were all from Morgan Creek.

Dang... sounds like a slight disappointment, but the movie is what counts, and it was excellent. I am looking forward to putting this movie in my collection!

Don't expect much from WB! As ALWAYS!

Terrible Cover
Terrible Features
Terrible SOUND!

Hey guys at least it's NOT a snapper! :lol: One less thing to bitch about.

PopcornTreeCt 08-23-04 09:33 PM

Still gonna pick this up. Really sucks that I have till next year for a sub-par DVD.

Get Me Coffee 08-23-04 09:38 PM

That's true too. What the hell is WB thinking? AFTER XMAS?!?!?

Iron Chef 08-23-04 09:43 PM

big heads

fryinpan1 08-23-04 09:46 PM

This film deserves a deluxe DVD. This was rumored to come out in October, so WB is really making us wait.

DonnachaOne 08-23-04 09:52 PM

Poppycock to that release!

Check it -

DonnachaOne, Thanks for the pic. That's one awesome set. Is that being released to the States?

Yeah, all titles not in dts have terrible sound. Good call. And since the three featurettes have their own disc devoted to them, I have a feeling they might have length and some good making of material.

Warner Bros. is one of the best dvd companies around, rarely double dipping, and only doing so when it is worthy (exclude Gothika).

Don't bash Warner Bros. when you haven't even checked the disc out yet, that's rude given all the great two disc sets they've given us in the past few years.

C'mon AnonomusBob15 ;)

WB soundtracks are always crappy! It's not about DTS ...WB does have shitty audio.

The cover DOES look like shit.

And the features look SLIM.

I don't think I'm bashing....just laying out fact and opinion
