If you can remember, a new Extended Edition was released last year, with 41 minutes of more footage.

So, hopefully, when it hits BD we'll have the Extended and Theatrical cuts on one disc.

Yeah, I do remember that. It just seems that about every HD DVD release has gone over to Blu Ray by this point and it's a damn shame that Waterworld is still not out. It's actually 1 of 3 HD DVD's that I still own because I can't get rid of it until they replace it.

Eh, it'll take a while. I just want Universal to do it right.

The PQ was awesome on HD DVD. If they release an extended cut I hope the new footage is integrated seamlessly and they don't have to hurt the PQ to accomplish it.

Also hoping they incorporate seamless branching between the theatrical edition and the extended edition. Absolutely love this movie.

There are still like 100 or so Universal HD DVDs not on Blu-ray. Not even half have come out on Blu-ray. And given the lackluster HD DVD (and DVD) sales of Waterworld it may be a while.

I've been waiting for this release as well. Saw it in the theater many, many, many years ago.

41 more minutes, huh? Can anyone tell me if the film benefits from the added footage?

Which is why I said "or so" . I don't have a running counter of what's not released though I'm sure this forum has a tally.
