I'm glad we know a release date -- I just wish it was in March instead when a lot of the Oscar bait will be released. But if they need to take the time to make some good special features, I'm all for that too. Would love to hear an Aronofsky/Rourke commentary together. Well-deserving of its two acting Oscar nominees. I'd have chosen Aronofsky to get a directing nod over The Reader's Stephen Daldry as well.

Given its documentary style approach its probably a title that isnt going to benefit greatly from being in HD but its a superb film and should be seen in the best way it can.

I second the request for a Rourke / Aronofsky commentary though as I think it would a bit strange Rourke would not doubt ramble and Aronofsky be highly technical which would be an odd marriage.

Well the HD trailer I have on my PS3 looks quite good.

I wonder who did? This brings to light another idea I have for something that would be a great special feature -- "Former Wrestlers Discuss 'The Wrestler': A Roundtable Discussion". How great would that be? Or at least to have a documentary with interviews from several of wrestling's former greats commenting on the things depicted in the film.

My favorite film of 2008 behind Slumdog Millionaire. Can't wait for this one, even though I would have liked it to have been sooner.
