Warner announce 'The Deer Hunter' for R2 DVD

Coming to R2 DVD on the 25th March courtesy of Warner Home Video is the Robert De Niro Vietnam drama, The Deer Hunter. With an RRP of £19.99 the extra features are looking to be a tad thin on the ground but the Press Release does make an interesting statement....

Super-bit mastering will ensure the best picture quality possible for The Deer Hunter so that no self-respecting film fan should be without this seminal classic in their DVD collection.

Is this a nod towards the recent 'Superbit' range from Columbia Tristar whereby Extra Features are dropped in favour of full-rate Audio and Video? The fact that the film will occupy a dual layer disc all by itself is in reality no different to what a 'Superbit' disc offers, but being the buzzword of the times it makes this disc sound that extra bit special.

The Deer Hunter will be presented in 2:35:1 Anamorphic Widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1 Audio. The Theatrical Trailer, a Photo Gallery and a DVDRom supplement in the form of Downloadable pages from the original theatrical press brochure make up the extras.
