    From DVDFile:

    So, what are you gonna get? How about the film's theatrical cut, a new extended cut and the European "Zombie" Cut (each gets their own disc), presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2.0 and DTS 5.1 surround tracks on the theatrical cut, Dolby 5.1 and 2.0 for the Euro cut, and Dolby mono only for the extended version, plus audio commentary with Romero, his wife Chris, makeup legend Tom Savini and moderator Perry Martin on the theatrical cut, producer Richard P. Rubinstein and Martin on the extended cut, and stars David Emge, Ken Foree, Scott H. Reiniger and Gaylen Ross on the Euro cut. Disc Four features the new 75-minute "The Dead Will Walk" documentary (featuring interviews with all of the above plus Claudio and Dario Argento, Pat and Tony Buba, Zilla Clinton, Michael Gornick, Claudio Simonetti and more), the original "Document of the Dead" documentary by Roy Frumkes, on-set home movie footage and a Monroeville Mall tour hosted by Romero. Other extras include five still galleries with domestic and international advertising, poster, lobby card and marketing materials, filmographies, a comic book preview, a Monroeville TV commercial, and theatrical trailers, TV and radio spots from around the world. Retail for this puppy will be $49.95.

    So the price is set at $49.95 and will probably be around $30.00-$40.00 at online retailers. I will be double dipping for sure.

    that's a damn good price for all that, and well worth the extra wait. I usually don't get dvds the day they're released, but i'll be scratching at the doors at Best Buy in September.

    Is the extended cut, the director's cut? I assume it is!

    This is great news!! This definitely looks like the definitive edition! They really outdid themselves this time!!

    I'm a little late responding but...

    WOOHOO!
    See this is what happens when the fanbase are treated with respect!

    I have to say, the keyboard was threatened with drool from this news, and deservedly so!

    The upcoming Friday set sounds like somebody dropped the ball, but Anchor Bay have obviously picked it up and ran with it, putting together what looks like the best DVD set ever.

    With Dawn of the Dead (remake) being one of the better horror films of this year, and now this, it is truly the year of the dead. The only thing complaining at the moment is my bank balance (September is going to be a very pricey month).

    Totally agreed here, man. Especially considering the great end of July releases (Conquest, Zombie, etc.)

    Kudos, AB. :)

    The extended cut is the best description for it. The director's preferred cut is the theatrical version. The version that is called "The Director's Cut" is actually the early cut that was put together for Cannes. Rubenstein licensed it out as the Director's Cut to AB, but to call it the Cannes Cut or the Extended Edition would be more appropriate.

    "• THE DEAD WILL WALK, an all-new 75-minute documentary featuring interviews with cast and crew members Claudio Argento......"

    This sounds awesome and the fact that it clocks in at 75 minutes is quite impressive.

    "• On-set home movies with audio commentary by zombie extra Robert Langer"

    Anyone have any idea if this is the D25 footage that Chris "The Geek" Stravakias was working on?

    "DISC THREE: EUROPEAN VERSION
    • Widescreen presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs
    • Audio commentary by actors David Emge, Ken Foree, Scott H. Reiniger and Gaylen Ross"

    Nice to finally get this one in 1.85:1, all versions I have are unmatted. Also, it strikes me as odd that this would be the version that the 4 main characters would commentate on. I am willing to bet at least 2 of them have not even seen this particular cut. We are going to be hearing a lot of "I don't remember this part..." and "I don't remember this music being in this scene...". I think that it would have been more appropriate for Rubenstein to do the commentary for the Argento cut since he was the one who did the financial wheeling and dealing with Argento, and also he would have more interesting things to say about the licensing and the problems that it had with being edited in the European markets.

    And where did they get 9-23 mins? I thought it was just flat out 9 minutes.

    Can't wait for this release. That means I will be triple-dipping, but Dawn is well worth it. Any one knows which version is the longest and how much longer is it?

    It says "New" extended edition... what do they mean by new? i assume it is just the cannes edition as everyone else has.. but that doesnt explain the term new... either way i'd kill for that 4th disc... i really will.. don't push me! :evil:

    Maybe John Russo is shooting some 'seamlessly matching' new footage starring his family. :evil:
