The new "Collector's Edition" DVD of The Hire is available now via BMWFilms.com and is essentially free though you must pay $7.75 (USD) to cover shipping and handling. Details on the exact contents of the DVD are not yet known but we have been told the following by BMW...
"The DVD is an NTSC version. It includes all eight films from both series available in Dolby 5.1 with behind the scenes footage, biographies and an extended DVD version for two of the films."
Update: We now also know the DVD is Region 0 and the films are presented in Non-Anamorphic Widescreen while those of you familiar with the previous releases will be happy to know the Wong Kar-wai directed short (The Follow) has been reinstated for this DVD release.
