Definitely picking this one up.

I just hope for at least a 2-disc set.

I don't like the artwork.

It looks better in dark gray.

When I saw the poster, I just knew they'd zoom in on it too.

I hope this will be released in HD as well.

Any word on extras for this yet? It's only two weeks away and I'm debating doing a blind buy. If it's barebones, I'll definitely pass.

-------

No extras on this based on reviews from several sites. I may contradict my earlier statement and buy, b/c the extras on Clint's dvds are not very good anyway, and I wouldn't say 100% there will be a double dip.

I can't find a damn thing about this. I suppose Clint didn't have time for any features on the disc. I'm hoping for at least the trailer. I'm sure Warners will give us a loaded disc for Letters from Iwo Jima.

Wow. Not even the trailer?

That's bizzarre, to say the least.

I'll buy it as I thought it was a great film (NOWHERE near as astonishing as Letters) and sell it when the ultimate Iwo Jima set is released.

That's not different. That's bizzare and annoying.

no special features=not interested..
i for one am getting pissed off at the lack of special features on these high profile major studio releases...
(The Prestige, Casino Royale, V for Vendetta, The Departed, Little Children, Flags...etc.)
What is the deal with this trend???

Not surprised at the lack of special features, still I'm excited to rent this.

No chapter selection also. Is Clint Eastwood taking the David Lynch route?

I can understand the lack of special features (trailers, commentaries, etc.) but lack of chapter selection??? That's BS.

I think I'm going to wait unit Letters From Iwo Jima comes out to get Flags. I bet some retailer will have a deal if you get both.
