There definitely was a 3 disc Alexander for Region 3 a couple of days ago on www.cdwow.com ! I swear it was there and now its gone! That is very, very weird, maybe spies are watching and have removed it. Very strange.... Confused

I have ordered the two disc version from the Danish site, but it is currently out of stock! Sad

I have been corresponding with someone on the site via e-mail who has been extremely helpful in helping me set up an account and placing the order.

Just wish the movie was in stock so they can send it to me. Been waiting for about a week now for it to come back in stock.

One of the nice members at the EpicFilmTalk.com board (formally the Dreamworksfansite) has posted the cover art for the DVD for Region 1 from Davis DVD. So hang in there Region 1 folks, it looks like we may get an announcement in the very near future.

The only drawback that I was not happy about is that the Director's cut edition may actually be the only one available for Region 1 according to the site. I thought that would not happen. But according to the Davis DVD people that may be the case. So, don't even get me started...

Anyway, here is the artwork for the DVD:

You can read a bit about the DVD from here (specs are not available yet, but it is 2 dics):

Well Region 1 folks (the would be the people in the US), some good news today....

Warner Brothers has FINALLY made the official announcement about the DVD (it's about time). It will come in 3 versions and one of those versions IS the theatrical version. They will all be released on August 2nd. There doesn't look to be a lot of extras, but as more details become available, I will try to post them. The DVD is pricey, but is a great addition to your collection. There do not seem to be any extras on the Final Cut versions of the film.

Here are some of the details from the WB's site (where you can pre-order the DVD):


First Version
Alexander: Theatrical (widescreen)
Category: Action & Adventure
Oliver Stone recreates the towering, true story of Alexander the Great (Colin Farrell), who in the 4th Century BC conquered Greece, Persia, Afghanistan and India- 90% of the known world. Against massive armies of chariots and elephants, he never lost a battle. Visionary, explorer, dreamer- he was also a tender son, torn by his mother's (Angelina Jolie) burning love and ambition and desperate for his father's (Val Kilmer) approval. His dream shaped the world we live in today.

"Wild, Glorious..Entertaining" --Ebert & Roepert
"Prepare to be awestruck!" --Ken Tucker, NEW YORK MAGAZINE

DVD Features:
Audio Commentary: Oliver Stone and historian Robin Lane Fox.
Documentaries: Resurrecting Alexander, explores the filming of Alexander.
Perfect is the Enemy of God, provides an in depth look at the details that go into the filming of an epic.
Featurette: Soundtrack featurette: Vangelis Scores Alexander.



Second Version

Razz Alexander was released today in Finland and of course I bought it. There are two versions, 1 disc and 2 discs (bought the 2 disc version). And watched the movie as soon as I could. I haven't seen the extras yet, but many has said they aren't what they expected. It needs something more...
But it was so good to see the film Smile

I'm tired so I don't write more.. Razz

I posted this over in one of the other forums and I thought it belonged here, too.

Just a bit of general information about the DVD from The Digital Bits:

The big news today is that Warner has finally announced the DVD release of two versions of Oliver Stone's Alexander to street on 8/2. The first will be a 2-disc Alexander: Special Edition (SRP $29.95), featuring the 175-minute theatrical version of the film in anamorphic widescreen video with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio. Extras will include audio commentary with director Oliver Stone and historian Robin Lane Fox, the Resurrecting Alexander, Perfect is the Enemy of God and The Death of Alexander documentaries, and a featurette on the film's soundtrack, Vangelis Scores Alexander. Also available on 8/2 will be a 2-disc Alexander: Director's Cut (SRP also $29.95), featuring a 167-minute version of the film ("newly inspired, faster-paced and more action-packed" according to the cover), also in anamorphic widescreen video with Dolby Digital 5.1 and, as far as we can tell, the same extras as the theatrical cut. So yes, the director's cut is actually SHORTER than the theatrical cut. Strange bird that Oliver Stone. A full frame version of the director's cut will also be available.
