The extended version will feature almost 30 minutes of additional footage.

There's no specs or extra details yet, but stay tuned.

Retail is $34.95.

I love this film!

I won the SD director's cut and I don't think it was anamorphic...the scenes that were restored were also not in great quality.


Can't wait for this one!

There's no anamorphic version of this film out right now, so this is a very welcome release for one of my favorite films.

The additional footage was also not of the highest quality on the old DVD release-- I'm curious, if it's integrated back into the film, if Stone has cleaned it up enough for a relatively seamless transition.

Can't wait for this...

Super. It's mine already.

Considering Stone's personal politics, his presentation of Nixon the man, was more compassionate than I expected; compassionate, but with a hard edge, as is probably appropriate.

I look forward to owning it on Blu.

I actually found it more entertaining as a Shakespearean tragedy than as a history. I think Stone even directed it this way, with all sorts of cinematic flourishes-- see his opening establishing shot of the White House in full haunted mansion style, complete with slow zoom, ominous music, and thunder and lightning. Or Hopkins playing Nixon as a modern-day Hamlet, driven mad by the demons of his past, and literally seeing ghosts at times.
