Waterworld - October 20

From HD ROOM:

Bluray will get a whole lot wetter on October 20 when the Kevin Costner's "Mad Max at Sea" adventure Waterworld completes its journey from defunct HD DVD to "Blu"-er waters.
Looking back at Waterworld on HD DVD reveals a bare bones release without a single supplement. Universal Studios Home Entertainment has taken a similar approach with Blu-ray but was kind enough to include the theatrical trailer.

Rather than serve up the nearly three-hour extended cut given Blu-ray's spacious disc capacity compared to HD DVD, Universal has chosen to stick with the 2:16 theatrical cut. That decision leaves a lot of extra space, a portion of which has been dedicated to a D-BOX Motion Control track accompanying a 1.85:1 1080p transfer and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.

Will definitely get Love Actually and in time for the holidays!

Nice to see a Uni catalog title which wasn't an HD DVD release.

That was pretty funny. This will be getting the BD25 treatment.

With "True Blood" pumping along as well as it is, I'm sure Trick r Treat will sell quite a few copies with a small "Starring Anna Paquin from HBO's True Blood" sticker on the front.

Look for Love Actually on Blu-ray to include a 2.35:1 1080p video transfer and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.

Two new bonus features have been added to four from the previously released DVD edition for a total of six. There is no information currently available suggesting the new features will be offered in HD.

Deleted Scenes with Introductions by Richard Curtis
The Music of Love Actually with Introductions by Richard Curtis
Kelly Clarkson "The Trouble Wtih Love Is" Music Video
NEW: Billy Mack "Christmas Is All Around" Music Video
NEW: The Storytellers
Feature Commentary with Director Richard Curtis and Actors Hugh Grant, Bill Nighy and Thomas Sangster
BD Live - Basic Download Center
Nov 3rd? Seriously?

Already on that day: Two Guys and a Girl, Say Anything, North By Northwest, It's a Wonderful Life, Heat, Chasing Amy, and Forrest Gump.

Wow, never had a day like that and now another title.

Anyone want to buy a kidney?

This may be the reason why there's no extended cut. From DVD Talk's review regarding the extended version on the dvd:

"The downside to a pleasingly fattened narrative? Universal didn't go out of their way to restore the movie for its DVD release, presenting the network television cut of the picture. Profanity has been dubbed over and a few special effect shots remain in their unfinished state, popping the bubble of fantasy to an unfortunate degree. It isn't a patch job like the famously reworked "Dune" extended cut, but it's far from ideal."

No features were on the 2-disc dvd. I don't blame them for creating anything new for this film.

^^^I would rather have the unedited Theatrical cut instead of the edited for tv Director's cut.

Yeah, I bet it's the same master as the HD DVD. The television cut may not even have an HD master.

2-disc set with the 2nd being a DVD. The list price shown is $19.98, but I'm wondering if that's an error.

Jesus Gizmo, you think Universal wants to spend any more money on this movie?

DVD is not an error though the price may be. The DVD pairing thing will become a thing for Universal family films but didn't think they were going to do it for their catalog releases.

No, sorry pal. I'd rather buy the Blu-ray's. I'm going to be just as broke as you will be. At least we'll be enjoying our movies.

Clerks, Chasing Amy, Kevin Smith Box Set - November 17

Amazon has pre-orders up. Clerks and Chasing Amy each have a $39.99 list price. The third film in the box set is supposed to be Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back.

Awesome! Here's hoping the Clerks Blu-Ray has all the extras from the Clerks X set. If so, I'm definitely in.

I think most here know this already, but Chasing Amy was shot on 16mm. Of course it will benefit from HD, but don't expect a revelation if you were disappointed with the DVD.

Will JASBSB be the same disc as before?

The Canadian Chasing Amy looked pretty good considering.
