  1. And, as usual, they will release an extended version of the film at some point in November. Over $100 dollars for an incomplete movie and bookends.

    I fell for this marketing once, back in 2002. Never again.

  2. Just wanted to say thanks for specifically saying that these were the North American release dates. The list that was put out irks me a LOT because they called it “WORLDWIDE” but there were no release dates for ANY ASIAN COUNTRY, it’s like they remembered there was region 1, 2 and 4 but completely denied the existence of region 3.

    Also just want to say to the commenter above me: Just because there’s an extended edition doesn’t mean the theatrical edition isn’t “complete.”
