Crouching Tiger - Full Specification!
We can now confirm the details for the Region 3 release of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The Columbia Tristar disc looks to be very impressive indeed - it's one of only a few 'Region 3' discs which have actually been Region encoded so you will need a multi-region player. It's also worth noting that the disc is NTSC.
Contrary to rumours floating around, the film is presented anamorphically at an aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and features two 5.1 channel Dolby Digital tracks (Mandarin and English) and two 2 channel tracks (Thai and Cantonese). There are also Chinese, English, Thai and Korean subtitles.
Now for the extras, and quite an impressive bunch they are:
You can order Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon from Movietyme (£19.99) or alternatively a Region 3 retailer such as HiVi Zone. The DVD was released on 12 January.
