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:

  • Audio Commentary by Ang Lee and James Schamus (English with Chinese Subtitles)
  • Theatrical Trailer
  • Behind-the-scenes featurette
  • A 13 minute 'Conversation With Michelle Yeoh'
  • Photo Galleries
  • Coco Lee - "A Love Before Time" (Separate English and Mandarin versions of the theme)
  • Cast & Crew Bios of Chow Yun-Fat, Michelle Yeoh, Director Ang Lee, James Schamus, and Choreographer Yuen Woo-Ping
  • A link to the official web site

    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.
