Default Passion of the Christ 02/03/2009

“Passion of the Christ” is expected to contain a Hebrew/Latin DTS-HD 5.1 track as well as an AVC MPEG-4 1080p video transfer. Feature wise we can expect Filmmakers’ Commentary by Director/Producer/Co-Screenwriter Mel Gibson, Cinematographer Caleb Deschanel and Editor John Wright, Production Commentary by Producer Stephen McEveety, VFX Supervisor/Second Unit Director Ted Rae and Special Make-up and VFX Designer Keith Vanderlaan, Theological Commentary by Mel Gibson, Father William J. Fulco, Gerry Matatics and Father John Bartunek, Commentary by Composer John Debney (Selected Scenes), Footnotes, Vignette/Documentary/Featurette: Passion Recut and all the features from the previous 2 Disc SD Release. No MSRP has been set on this either.

Will be picking this one up someday to replace my DVD copy. The cinematography in this film is too amazing to have it just in SD. The only thing is it's just not one that I watch a lot, the subject matter is just not something that warrants watching it over and over...maybe once a year or so.

Can't wait to pick this one up & replace my DVD version.

It's been one of the top titles I've been waiting for one Hidef.

I hope Fox gives us a top notch PQ & AQ.

Just in time for Easter.

Good call. Yes, I almost picked up the new special edition but, glad I waited to get this now on blu ray. I am curious to hear Gibson's commentary on the flm. Not one to watch over and over but, it is an AMAZING film no matter how "controversial or whatever.

It doesn't need a stand alone post - if i did that for all the movies i was telling everyone fox released (11) - there would be a ton of threads - also you titled the release date wrong . It is being released on the 17th not the 3rd.
