The Crying Game SE coming in January

From DavisDVD:
Lion Gate Home Entertainment will release The Crying Game: Collector's Edition on January 25th. The film with a big surprise (we won't tell, even though you probably already know) will arrive with a newly remastered anamorphic transfer, Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2.0 tracks, DTS 5.1, an audio commentary with director Neil Jordan, an alternate ending (with optional commentary), a making-of featurette and another featurette examining the war in Northern Ireland as seen through the eyes of a Catholic cabbie from Belfast and a Protestant paramilitary construction worker. Retail will be $19.98.
DDD has it up for pre-order, for only $10.63

Let's see: the movie, a commentary track and two featurettes.

My guess is one disc.

This is true, but One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest only has one featurette and it's still a double disc.

Cuckoo's Nest is 133 minutes long. The Crying Game is 112.

Disc 2 of Cuckoo's Nest features a 47 minute documentary and 8 additional scenes. From what we know, The Crying Game will include 2 "featurettes" (which tend to run anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes) and an alternate ending.

I'm still betting it'll be a 1-discer.

Excellent news and a great price. The original dvd is absolutely dreadful. So it will be great to own a properly transfered version of the film.

What great news! I almost bought the current DVD just last week, but then I thought "They've gotta come out with a better DVD than this some day." Apparently that day is in January 25th.

I'm surprised there aren't any reviews for this disc yet considering it was released days ago.
