Update on the petition. I am in the process of writing the petition statement. If there is anything that any of you would like me to add to it, please let me know! I want all of our voices to be heard  :ghug:
I don't know what you have written so far but just what we all want really and that is a fair deal when it comes to them producing a so called deluxe collectors edition which by the looks of it is not very different from the original.We are not concerned with postcards and freebies,just some deleted footage as extras.As we have supported the film since the beginning and we are still doing so then to reward us with a collectors edition dvd is wonderful,but not if it's the same as what we already have.

I am just going to have a look now.I will sign it and make you a petition button in a minute.If the forum lets you/anyone add it as their signature it will be seen on every thread every time we post and hopefully encourage folks to sign.I was also reading that there will be never before seen footage on the dvd?Mmm?That must be deleted scenes of some kind surely?It's odd that the people who have viewed this dvd already did not mention it though?

Thanks for the petition Carbyville and for the link Jennis.  :)

I just don't get it. How can it feature a "ton" of new material but all of the information beyond promo materials have stated otherwise?  :s)

Can't believe they're making us wait till the end of January!
It would have made a great Christmas gift!
As you may have guessed, I'm not good at waiting.
Getting too old for it.

I could have sworn I signed it, but I just went and looked and I hadn't.  Sop I did.  So we're 186 now.

Nevertheless, I don't understand what's the differences between this DVD and the French one...
It already exist here a release which seems to be the same, at least reading description.....
http://www.amazon.fr/Secret-Brokeback-Mountain-Collector-DVD/sim/B000EMGAQW/1/ref=pd_sexpl_esi/403-8461850-8421253

We have also, a box of 2 DVD called "Edition Prestige", but this time with a little strip of the film
http://www.amazon.fr/secret-Brokeback-Mountain-Prestige-pellicule/dp/B000FGG7H4/sr=1-3/qid=1165259286/ref=sr_1_3/403-8461850-8421253?ie=UTF8&s=dvd

Hello all :)
I am new poster on this forum.
I live in England, and like many of you I have recently filled in the online form at Universal Studios to complain about the disappointing content of the "Collector's" edition of the upcoming DVD.
And I have received the same standard answer as Jennis.
So Universal does not even provide a UK-based email address.
I really wonder how can such an international media company not have a system to redirect enquiries from people resident outside the US internally to the appropriate department?
Perhaps it's got to do with the fact that the "Collector's" edition may just be planned for release in the US.

Here's what I wrote to Universal:

Dear Universal Studios,
I am very disappointed at reading the programme you are planning to include in the January edition of Brokeback Mountain DVD.
To consider this DVD a proper "collector's" edition, I would have expected at least an Audio Commentary (by the Director or one of the Actors), some interviews with cast and crew (for example at official awards, such as the Venice Film Festival, which the film won), or with the short story writer Annie Proulx.
Much lesser films are released on DVD with Audio Commentaries, so why not this one, the "most acclaimed movie of 2005" and one which has impacted the lives of many viewers around the globe?
It really seems like a wasted opportunity.
I am also disappointed you are going to include again the "Sharing the Story: The Making of Brokeback Mountain" documentary, which had already been distributed by Logo Online before the release of the first DVD. So it was nothing new the first time.
Please give deeper consideration to the content of the new DVD: I am astonished that Focus Features and the other producers of this wonderful film would allow the release of this disappointing DVD. It really doesn't do justice to the movie.
Including really interesting and new features/featurettes would gain you not only better sales, but also the respect of viewers alike.
Thanks for your attention.
Best regards.
