Warner Home Video have announced a couple of Region 2 DVD releases for August...
Mega-flop Battlefield Earth is expected on 6 August retailing at £19.99. For your money you'll get a 2.35:1 anamorphic transfer, Dolby Digital 5.1 sound and a number of extras (although they'd have to be pretty special to justify shelling out on this disc). The extras will consist of an audio commentary by director Roger Christian and production designer Patrick Tatopoulos, a behind-the-scenes documentary entitled 'Evolution and Creation', creative and visual effects featurette, John Travolta makeup featurette, storyboard montage, DVD Spots and hidden features.
Elvis: That's The Way It Is is due on 13 August as both a standard DVD (£15.99) and a special boxset (£24.99). The DVD chronicals Presley's 1970 Las Vegas tour and will be released completely uncut and restored. The disc will be presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen with DD5.1 sound. The standard DVD will feature a look at the restoration for the DVD release and the original theatrical trailer. Those of you buying the boxset will also lay your hands on a limited edition 4 track EP, 5 large sized postcards, A2 theatrical poster and a special edition booklet.
