Terminator 2: UE, Region 2
Originally due for release at the end of last year and then postponed to the end of January, the Region 2 release of Terminator 2 has moved back yet again - this time to October. The reason for the delay is that apparently the conversion to PAL is taking longer than previously thought. The good news is that the transfer is being handled by the same authoring house that put together the Region 1 release so it should look pretty special.
Momentum's Simon Bligh had this to say:
"Terminator 2: Judgment Day Ultimate Edition will be one of the most intricate and exciting DVDs ever released in the UK. This delay has been caused by the sheer volume and complex nature of converting the many extra features on the two discs. By working with Van Ling (the producer of the critically acclaimed US disc) Momentum Pictures & Kinowelt are ensuring the highest quality release for Region 2."
The UK release will come on two discs - one for the various editions of the film (only two are mentioned in the press release, whereas three appeared on the Region 1 disc) and commentary tracks, the other will hold all of the extra material which includes litterally hundreds of hours of behind-the-scenes material.
The transfer will of course be anamorphic in the original 2.35:1 aspect ratio and we'll get both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 channel soundtracks. We are even going to be getting the disc in a 'limited edition' tin case - just like they did in Region 1.
