Default "Batman Begins" Japanese SE Contains non US Extra

Even though you're already shelling out extra $$ to get the "special edition: Batman Begins" collector's Blu-Ray, that is still not good enough it seems to get the complete package. Because apparently Warner wanted to give even more to our Japanese friends. Check out the exclusive only available in the Japanese version.
Warner sure does know how to pull a fast one.

I'm curious if it's going to get a new transfer. The original HD DVD looked good...however, something about it just screams "I can look better"/"using old outdated techniques".

Also, a number of you have asked about the BD transfers/encodes for V for Vendetta (5/20), Batman Begins (7/8) and The Matrix Trilogy (TBA 4th Qtr), so here's the reply from the studio:

"Each of these releases will repurpose the encode used on the HD release. They looked beautiful on HD and will look beautiful on BD. Each of these titles will be released on BD50s. We are very excited that the Matrix titles will be coming out on BD... they are going to look awesome. And with Animatrix added (not part of the HD release) it should be terrific."

preordered this yesterday with Gangs of New York... it's a shame I'll have to wait until July to see them...

Batman Begins has been all over FX recently and I've intentionally tried not to watch it so the film will be fresh when I see it again in HD.
