Does someone know if it will released at the same time worldwide? I couldn't find any reference on the French Amazon webpage.

I can't find any reference on any UK site either, Cham.

Well, the original DVD came out in the UK 3 weeks after the States so maybe it'll be the same this time. I'll keep checking play.com regularly....but I've got a multi region DVD player so if I have to, I'll order it on Region 1 from Play USA.

Now that the initial happiness has taken residence in my mind, I am starting to wonder if they will change the cover art, or just add the words "COLLECTOR'S EDITION" to it? I also am wondering what the second DVD is going to look like. My DVD has the picture from the cover and posters, but I wonder if the new, second DVD will have something different or if it will just have "Disc 1" and "Disc 2".

Don't mind me. I'm a graphics artist so I tend to wonder and analyze things like this for ages.

Hey Carbyville, you can wonder and analyze as long as you like, I'm wondering about the same thing!  Well, that and what the extra scenes will be, and if there's going to be audio commentary, and what the postcards will have on them...you know, usual stuff like that!

I think it would be great to have a new cover, wouldnt it?  Make it more special.

Most definitely. I'm not sure how much different the art is on the DVD in other countries, but I know here in the states it was very bland. Bland in the sense that, when compared with my Titanic DVD for example you'd never know that Jack and Ennis fall in love but you sure as heck know that Jack and Rose fall in love by the description and art on the Titanic DVD.

Jack and Ennis's relationship is described as "a life long connection". Spare me. I've formed a life long connection with my dog but nobody has made a movie about that. On the Titanic DVD almost right off the bat it says "the sweeping love story". Makes me mad.  ^*)

If anything I'd like the US DVD to recognize Jack and Ennis's relationship as love as opposed to calling it "a life long connection".

As for extra footage and the postcards, the anticipation is killing me but I'd also like to wait until I get the new DVD to find out as opposed to being spoiled. Gives me more anticipation when I don't know what is coming.  ;)

FYI sometimes "collector's editions" are released in certain countries and not others.  I've purchased DVD's that are "special editions" meant for the European market which are not available in the States.  Hopefully, they will release this collector's edition in other countries as well, or non-US/Canada brokies will have to get a multiregion/multistandard DVD to play this DVD

Same here and really, I'm not even asking for that. Just that they clearly define what the movie is about, instead of going around it with terms like "lifelong connection". What's so hard about using the word "love"? I just double checked my DVD to make sure that love was not used at all and I was right. The tagline "love is a force of nature" isn't even anywhere to be found. They should definitely work on that for the release of this collector's edition.

I dont mean to laugh about something serious, but your comment about your dog cracked me up!  ;D

Seriously though, I totally agree about the way the word love is avoided just cos its two men!  Hello, what century are we living in?   ^*()

And as for the extra stuff and postcards, I am going to try my hardest not to look at anything that may be posted regarding extra scenes, etc.  I mean, I may have to give in and find out what the scenes are, but I am definitely not going to look at them until I have my own DVD in my own hands.

I, too am going to try really hard to not be spoiled. I am even considering not finding out what the scenes are, which I know for me is going to be really hard to do because I'm extremely impatient, especially with something like that. I love that there is finally going to be a whole second disc dedicated to extra features for this movie.  ^f^

Well i think the main thing to remember is that nothing was given away.If the cover details description of love and the rest of it then Ang's ideal of our perception is out the window.I love the fact we all have different ideas and ways of seeing the movie.It's more intriguing if i don't know too much beforehand.Not everyone will have been to the cinema to see it,so the dvd marketing is clever in that respect :)

OMG, I will be gutted if it's not released in the UK :\'( I can't imagine it won't be available worldwide though, cause let's face it, the reason they probably held all this stuff back and didn't release it with the original version is down to money, to make us all pay for it twice, so it wouldn't make sense for them to not exploit all the markets, not just the US one. Of course, normally I would refuse to be a part of such a cynical, money-grabbing ploy, but I don't care, this is Ennis and Jack we're talking about, I want the lot, however much it costs, principles be damned!! ::) ;D Seriously, I cannot wait to get my hands on this! ;D ;D ;D

I'm right there with you! It's gotten to the point for me that I can recite the movie in my sleep and see the scenes clear as day in my head. For the most part we are pretty in the dark about that scenes were cut and what the scenes entail. We have the finalized theatrical release so ingrained into our memories that a new scene and new dialogue is enough to to kill us  ;D

The tagline "love is a force of nature" isn't even anywhere to be found. They should definitely work on that for the release of this collector's edition.

My DVD (which is the UK one) mentions the word "love" twice, "...an epic American love story(...)whose complications, joys, and tragedies provide a testament to the endurance and power of love."   :) But saying that, it is a bit ambiguous, when you see the pix on the back, cause it has Jack and Lureen dancing, and Ennis and Alma getting married, but the only pic of Jack and Ennis together is the one where they're looking at the sheep all mixed up with the Chilean sheep, so to anyone who didn't know it might look like the "love" refers to Jack and Lureen or Ennis and Alma ??? It does seem that there's an element of not scaring people off, so to speak, but then surely anyone who hasn't been living on Mars for the last year or so would know what it's about, even if they only know it as "that gay cowboy movie" ? ::)
I hope they do make it clearer on the new edition, and a new cover would be great too, not that there's anything wrong with the original as such, but I'd rather it didn't have the Titanic feel to it, I really don't understand what all the fuss was about with Titanic, I thought it was pretty crap (just my opinion!) so I'd rather BBM not be associated with it in any way, shape or form ;) :)

So it is really happening, our dreams and wishes are coming true. I'm really excited. :clap: They gave us really good after christmas present :cr) &**)
The most difficult scene was the paragraph where, on the mountain, Ennis holds Jack and rocks back and forth, humming, the moment mixed with childhood loss and his refusal to admit he was holding a man.

From the vibration of the floorboard on which they both stood, Ennis could feel how hard Jack was shaking.

Me, too, carby, a graphic artist (not currently as a living though).  Anyway, of course I wonder about the packaging, too (being also a packaging connoiseur). :)  For instance, I loved the French version they got, the special box with all the goodies inside; and I loved the denim-boxed (or denim-look?) one.  This is indeed exciting.

Has anyone actually pre-ordered it yet?  I hope there won't be choices to make, or we'll have to get both/all.  As it is, I would love to have the whole collection of all the worldwide editions, but...

I don't want to be privy to extra scenes beforehand, either.  However, we've all seen tons of deleted-scenes stills already, so we know what might be shown in the deleted scenes.

I love it!!  I'd never seen or read it before, either.  (See?  A Brokie completist must have ALL versions of everything.)  Anyway, those are really beautiful words.  I even like that it says an American love story.  The West of America is such a part of the character of the story.  But they wouldn't bother to say that on the editions for the US.

I was very excited by this news.  I know we all had been waiting for something like this. 

I preordered it 10-26-06

I had preordered the movie DVD and got it one day earlier than the release date.

Thankyou for this news, you have made my entire YEAR. Seriously! :clap: :clap: :clap:

I was talking to my sister about the possibility of a special DVD edition the other day, and she says "Sounds great, but I bet it won't happen..." Wait till I tell her........ ;D

Again, a HUGE thankyou for telling me. I can just feel all BBM fans in every online community everywhere celebrating. This is amazing. This film really unites us.

I am just drooling wondering about the "never before seen footage" - will we get to see the hippie scene?  And how about the few extra moments with the shirts?  Maybe even see Ennis in the PJ's that Ethan got ;)  I'm sure we'll have lots to talk about when it is released.   ;D  Wonder if a similar package will be released in UK/Europe anytime soon.  If not, our Euro Brokies will need to get a region 1/NTSC DVD player!

Like many people in Europe I have an "all region" player. I can buy and play anything from anywhere. Why not? My credit card is as good as anyone elses. Free markets and all that. Amazon.com can be difficult about delivering to an EU address, but there is nothing to stop me sending it via friends in the USA and on the the EU, or from import shops at about 20% more.

Maybe they should!

If anything I'd like the US DVD to recognize Jack and Ennis's relationship as love as opposed to calling it "a life long connection".

The British release had this text too.

I will buy this edition of BBM.

However, I do feel the studio is pushing the loyalty of the fans to the limit here.

They released the film so that thousand saw it in the first few days, then replaced the reels to be shown in cinemas with several minutes cut. The trailer remained unchanged with bits that were not in the film any more. Rumours of the cut secenes abounded.

So now the missing minutes are restored for those who buy again at a premium - this "de-lux" edition will be 6 minutes longer and will almost certainly be as the film was originally. (Ennis & Jack driving in a truck helping a van full of hippies, Jack and Randall at a gas station with angry looking garage workers, a shot of a tubby stand-in of Jack/Jake in the distance, all hinted at in the trailer if you look closely)

Who will want to see the present version if you know there is another with just a little more? No one.

I do feel our roses are being stemmed a bit, especially as this is not yet the High Deffinition release, which will surely follow. For those who have not yet seen a HDTV broadcast - it is like looking through a window.

But then again - I cannot wait to pre-order! Yes, I will pay again just to get those missing 6 minutes. And a whole DVD of interviews and extra bits will be nice. And then get a HDTV and DVD player to play the HDBBM on!

Such is addiction!  ;D
