HD for me. I hope they use a completely different cover than those for the SD releases. I can't wait to watch those bonus features.

No, the incentive should be the high definition video and sound. If that's not enough then why even invest in such a format? With multiple formats out there its silly to leave off special features like this especially in this case where HD-DVD is really on it's last limb but that's a different forum/topic.

^ I agree. There's no reason to leave off features just to try an get an HD purchase out of consumers. Many people have chosen to stick with dvd and to penalize film fans by removing content that could easily fit on a 2 disc set is just lame.

Those covers are extremely lame.

Look like a 6 year old did it in Microsoft Paint.

Terrible covers. And yeah Blu-rays and HD-DVDs have had more features on a few different releases. We have gone on bitching that Fox doesn't include extra features on Blu-rays that are included in the DVD version well now it's like it's supposed to be. The HD versions should have more features because it has more disc space and because some features just cannot be done on DVD.

Exactly! Especially when they're paying ten bucks more to get that 2-disc edition, and the HD crew is paying about 2 bucks more after that.

But yes, as Mao has stated already, this will become clearer on Tuesday, and I can't wait...because THERE MIGHT BE BLOOD!

EVerything on the 2-disk HD-DVD version of this CAN fit in the 2-DIsk DVD set. (and still have about 2 hours worth of free space it sounds like). Like I said I have HD-DVD but I hate that this is coming to HD_DVD with more features than on EITHER of the 2 versions on DVD. I am not a fan of these hi-def formats. They take way too long to load and are not very impressive IMO and am glad HD-DVD is finished and BLu-ray wont be around much longer or at least widely accepted either.

I'll be purchasing this no doubt. And then I'll sell it once the BR version comes out which may be a long while.

It's temp art, which is usually butt-ugly compared to the final art.

Disney is well known for this, Paramount and Universal have started doing it. Yes, it's not good, but the artwork ain't final.

ALso i would advise everyone complaining about the cover art to chill the F out.
These are obviously not the finalized covers. There is no way they are not going to milk the awards recognition this film has received all over the front cover.
I am pretty sure the finalized art will be classier than what the pics on the previous page show.

The incentive should be getting high definiton video and audio. Not to get extra bonus features. I'm a completist when it comes to disc content, so I always prefer to get the SE's of movies when released. I can't afford to spend additional money upgrading to another format (especially one that is pretty much the declared loser in this format war) just to get extra bonus features, which leaves me in a "no-win" situation. It looks like Cloverfield (another Paramount title) is going to be done this way, which really angers me as well.

Now with that said, reading Mao's post, it does look like it might not be the case with There Will Be Blood. Notice how the specs on the HD-DVD versions have been duplicated.

It leads me to believe that this will be a DVD/HD-DVD combo title.

This is a Paramount movie, which to date has never released a DVD/HD DVD Combo movie (with the exception of Star Trek Season 1) on HD DVD.

Isthere any reason why the features are incredibly repetitive?

^Yes there is a reason and the reason is to make it sound like there is a lot more on the 2nd disk than there really is.

Paramount Home Entertainment has announced 1-disc and 2-disc editions of There Will Be Blood which stars Daniel Day-Lewis. The Paul Thomas Anderson directed film will be available to own from the 8th April. Each will carry an anamorphic widescreen presentation, along with an English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround track. No extra material will be included on the 1-disc. The 2-disc will include 3 featurettes (Dailies Gone Wild, The Story of Petroleum, 15), additional scenes (Fishing, and Haircut/Interrupted Hymn), and both the teaser and theatrical trailers. A HD DVD release will also be available with all of the 2-disc features. We've attached package artwork for the 1-disc release of the movie below:

Something tells me that the Toshiba announcement might have helped...but I digress.

The one disc art is Ok by me. But I am with everyone else, a leather like book would be nice for the two disc.

Good that the artwork doesn't match the one posted earlier in this thread.

Wait a second, it's the same picture!
