Gladiator R4 specs
DVD File have a story detailing the specifications for the Region 4 special edition of Gladiator. It seems that Columbia have announced this in advance of the details for the R1 release.
The R4 disc contains an anamorphic 2.35:1 transfer and a 5.1 soundtrack. Special features include:
Ridley Scott commentary
4 featurettes, including a tribute to Oliver Reed
25 minutes of deleted scenes with commentary
Of course, the R1 release is a 2 disc set, so we can maybe expect even more features ... watch this space.
Incidentally, the Gladiator released on R1 in September is the 1992 film by Rowdy Herrington. It contains no swords, tigers or sandals, but it does feature Brian Dennehy in lycra, which is a considerably more terrifying prospect than any faced in a Roman arena.
