Definitely looking forward to watching Finding Neverland again when it hits the shelves - it's a wonderful movie experience with a great performance by Depp. Hopefully some substantive extras will be included.

Does that NT cover/poster of Cage remind anyone of The Rock (the WWE superstar)? Everytime I glance at it I think of him.

Yeah, that's the release date. The April one must have been tentative... that and it doesn't make sense for Buena Vista to have it's own releases competing with each other for sales.

From Dvd answers

Title: Finding Neverland
Starring: Johnny Depp
Released: 22nd March 2005
SRP: $29.99

Further Details
Miramax Home Entertainment has released early artwork for the release of Finding Neverland which stars the likes of Johnny Depp, Kate Winslet, Julie Christie, Radha Mitchell and Dustin Hoffman. The disc will be available to own from the 22nd March next year, priced at around $29.99. The film itself will be presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen along with an English Dolby Digital 5.1 track. A seperate full frame release will also be available. Extras on both will include an audio commentary with director Marc Forster, producer Richard Gladstein and writer David Magee, The Magic of Finding Neverland and Creating Neverland featurettes on making the film, deleted scenes with optional commentary from the producer, writer and director, outtakes and an On The Red Carpet feature which brings viewers up close and personal with the film’s fabulous Hollywood premiere.


Title: National Treasure

SRP: $29.95

Further Details
Disney has sent over revised artwork for National Treasure which stars Nicolas Cage alongside Diane Kruger, Jon Voight, Harvey Keitel and Sean Bean. The film will be available to own from the 3rd May in seperate widescreen and full screen editions. Each should set you back around $29.95 a piece. The full disc specs have yet to be revealed I'm afraid, although we can confirm that the disc will boast an English Dolby Digital 5.1 track, along with an audio commentary, some deleted footage and a behind the scenes featurette. We'll bring you some further details shortly. For now though, here's the revised artwork:

FINDING NEVERLAND, Best Picture - maybe.
FINDING NEVERLAND, Excellent DVD - most definitely!

Anamorphic Widescreen, 5.1 mix - does it get any better?

Looking forward to Finding Neverland. Great movie, and I really need to pick up the score which was just beautiful. I also liked the theatrical artwork more than the revised, but it's no biggie.

OK, the "big head" covers have to go - *now*! Perhaps the studios are "saving" their better art for HD releases. After all, they'll need a way to push those discs since most people don't have HD TVs and are already happy with regular DVD.

I'm *not* buying HD and I'm sure I'm not alone. The studios can try to manipulate our buying habits until the "cows come home."

For a MASSIVELY better picture and sound, I sure as hell am. The different cover art would just be icing.
