The more the merrier. I know I won't stammer to pick it up Day One!

I thought the only Extra would be adding the Oscar award wins on the cover. Nevertheless, this movie is a no-brainer day 1 pick for me.

I wonder if the USA Blu-ray will have those controversial swear words censored?
And I wonde if the UK Blu-ray wil not?

Well, it appears to be the R-rated version, which will have the swear scenes intact and...t!t$.

Stupid question: R or PG-13 cut?

Nice to see a few more special features but I was really hoping that they would be including highlights of their Oscar winners' acceptance speeches. I guess they're saving that for next year's Ultimate Collectors Edition.

Have fun watching a glorified Masterpiece Theatre, guys.

Should be a great buy. Will wait for the review to give the go-ahead though.

Day one purchase for me! Best picture of the year actually won the Oscar for Best Picture - it happens once or twice a decade!

Snake in my Boots,

I'm betting they'll include both versions.

I'm waiting for it to come to the local dollar theater to check it out. I don't think it would be worth a purchase only because it doesn't look like something I would watch more than once.

I don't think the pg-13 version will be included at all. I hope so at least, it was just a ploy to make more money. I'm glad to see more features added.

Nice! now if they could only change out that hideous hallmark movie cover. how could anyone pick that over the original one-sheet???

Ah, PBScapism at its finest! :-P

I really liked this movie, but I don't think it's escaped anyone that there seems to be a strange fetish in the US when it comes to British movies. A movie featuring British royalty seems to be a slam dunk for Oscar contention. It doesn't even matter if you fictionalize some, most or all of it or leave out critical info (i.e. Nazi appeasement). I love my British TV and quite a few British movies, but the American hard-on for *royalty* seems a bit obtuse considering we're a democratic republic. Our traditional belief in self-determination seems counter to the idea of divine right and the very definition of silver spoon entitlement.

I wonder if it's too late to change that fugly box art, the movie did win Best Picture after all and deserves better than that surely.

Day 1. This movie was fantastic.

I already had this movie pre-ordered(along with Captain Planet and the Planeteers) so the more features, the better.

I didn't know there was a PG-13 version.

@reidw Including the Oscar speeches would have been nice. In my opinion, TKS winners had the best of the night.

Mike scott, one would hope, but I have a nagging sense of a double dip, even though it appears only one scene was edited out. Simple menu choice and navigation correction would seem ideal.

This artwork is the latest studio ad campaign, so hardly a step in the wrong direction with wildly off-base art. Nonetheless, I'm always curious that people even care about artwork at all, given that there are dozens of custom Blu-Ray art sites on the net. If I don't care for something, I change it.

@Mao: I'm with you. I don't care a great deal about art (except my Criterions) but why use this picture instead of the artwork used when the movie was in theaters? Using recognizable faces on the box in place of artwork is nothing new, but it's so obviously a cheap marketing ploy aimed at impulse buying that I hate to encourage it with a purchase.

@BrowncoatJedi, clearly you've never seen Masterpiece Theater. But thanks for trolling just the same.

@BrowncoatJedi Have fun watching that pretentious crap movie that just so happens to be about the guy(s) who created Facebook, trollio.

don't listen to @BrowncoatJedi.....he just goes on this site to give 0.5 star reviews to movie he hates (if he has even seen them...doesn't sound like it from the reviews)....though interestingly he did give a movie 5 stars - Contact. Contact....yeah, the one with Jodie Foster. I mean, I liked it well enough...but...

He likes Contact more than King's Speech...so he's pretty much worthy of the ignore button.
