DVD Empire HAS ALWAYS BEEN RELIABLE in the past when it comes to street date listings.

I will be getting this as well.

A Aronofsky, Rourke & Tomei commentary track would make me happy.

Re: The wrestler= 4/21/09

DVD Specs:

The Wrestler single-disc DVD is presented in widescreen format 2.35:1 aspect ratio with English 5.1 Dolby Surround. Individual disc bonus features as follows:

o Within the Ring featurette

o The Wrestler Music Video Written and Performed by Bruce Springsteen


Note: the only difference between this and the Blu-ray Disc release is that the BD comes with a Digital Copy and one extra feature entitled "Wrestler Round Table."

Re: The wrestler= 4/21/09

For some reason I don't think we'll see a better version of the film than this. Fox Searchlight isn't big on double dips I think.

Re: The wrestler= 4/21/09

Re: The wrestler= 4/21/09

I'm still buying it since Fox Searchlight or Aronofsky don't double dip much....

Re: The wrestler= 4/21/09

Offhand, the only double-dips from Searchlight I can recall:

The Full Monty
The Ice Storm (via Criterion)
Napoleon Dynamite


Then there are those Searchlight titles that have had separate single and two-disc releases:

Titus
Kinsey
I Heart Huckabees

Re: The wrestler= 4/21/09

for the love of god,i don't understand why "The Wrestler" and "Slumdog Millionaire" get a single disc releases while "Notorious" gets a 3-disc set.

argh.

Damn I really wanted that Wrestler Roundtable but won't buy the blu-ray garbage. Hopefully somebody gets that as a bonus disc somewhere

I've ordered over a thousand discs from them the past few years and I wish I would have found them earlier. They are probably one of the most reliable DVD retailers.

Annoyed that neither The Wrestler nor Slumdog Millionaire got the online vids with Boyle interviewing Aronofsky and vice versa.
