This is excellent news. Big Cronenberg fan here, but haven't made it to see this yet. Now if we could get History of Violence, Spider, and maybe even some of his earlier stuff.

Saw it in theaters, pretty damn good, probably put it a step under A history of violonce though. Awesome performances and the bath house scene is worth the price of admissio itself.....

On hd it should show the cool cinematography of london, although I'm not looking forward to viggo's junk in hd....

Albeit the extras are slim, the movie should be fat.

My type of movie, a must buy for me. I'm going w/ Amazon on this one, it should be well under the SRP for the combo. I'm guessing $24-27.95 (Amazon).
