Default Pirates of the Caribbean has two discs?

Does anyone have any idea why the two Pirates Blu-rays have two discs (at least listen on Amazon)?

Are all the extras going to be high-def? Are both discs BD50 or one BD50 and one BD25?

Both movies are two and a half hours, and if it's encoded in MPEG2, then that takes up a lot of space. Having a second disc could mean HD features plus new ones not on the DVD.

MI-III also has 2 disks - probably many more and 2nd disk as extras.

I have yet look at it . I am hoping that Pirates are BD50's. I believe Fox appears to be changing there formats to all BD50 because of the better quality.

It is rumor that these disks also suppose to have a version of movie for PSP on it. ( I don't think it will be UMD ).

Its about time the Blu ray discs changed to VC-1 less space neede for Quality transfer. Maybe then only 1 BD50 would be needed. Mind you Fox Probably will use it as an excuse for Charging $39
