Troy Director's Cut (R2) in October

Warner Home Video have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Troy (Director’s Cut) on 1st October 2007. Warner brings you director Wolfgang Petersen's new director’s cut version of his epic film Troy. With 30 minutes of new footage, Troy (Director’s Cut), including special features from its first DVD release, will be available in collectible O-sleeve packaging.

"The raw power of Homer, the sex, the brutality and the uncompromising battles really come to life in this version," says Petersen. "We went back to the way I first envisioned the film, when the full energy and impact of each scene had time to play out. Now, with great new visuals and sound design, audiences are going to have a deeper emotional experience of this literary classic. Thanks to Warner Home Video for giving me the opportunity to restore the creative integrity of my original vision."
