DVD owners should note that HMV are offering a 2-Disc Exclusive Edition. Exact details are TBC but it is likely to include the hour of featurettes from the Blu-ray on the second disc.

The BBFC classification for Mann’s commentary lists both a theatrical and extended cut of the film. The press release and Blu-ray packaging makes no mention of this, though as the running time difference is only 11 seconds it may be a small quirk in how the material has been passed rather than any indication of an alternate cut of the film.
