Wow, that's a shocker. All e-tailers are listing "special features: none", and it's very strange that Icon isn't promoting this more with extras, as I can't find any reviews for the disc anywhere.

Check your PMs.

Extras:
There are a number of interesting supplemental features on this Blu-ray disc. First, there is an audio commentary courtesy of director James Marsh, producer Simon Chinn and executive producer Jonathan Hewes where the three talk about Man on Wire, how it became a reality, what it took to film it, etc. “Unseen Sydney Harbor Bridge footage” offers a view at Philippe Petit’s Australian visit in 1973 (the piece also contains a recent interview with Philippe Petit and his close Australian associate who would later on play a key role in his incredible performance in New York City). Next is a long interview with Philippe Petit where he talks about his fascination with the World Trade Center, how he managed to achieve his impressive gig and how times have changed since 1974. Finally, there is a fascinating short titled “The Man Who Walked Between The Towers” narrated by actor Jake Gyllenhaal.

oh it does have a commentary... something I believe the US edition is missing. So the supplements are NTSC and not PAL encoded, right?
