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

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

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!

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

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
