Mark Smids reports that the Wing Commander movie is being rereleased on DVD on August 2nd... in the Netherlands! Will this version have anything special? Only time will tell - regional releases of the movie have included unique special features in the past, including a 'making of' featurette in Spain and an amazing 3D menu system in Japan. We can also cross our fingers and hope that it's a nice anamorphic transfer... but ultimately the fact is we don't know yet: we'll let you know as soon as someone has a copy in hand. It features the colored American poster artwork rather than the 'blue' version sported by previous northern European versions. You can buy the disc from Dutch e-tailer Bol.com here.
AD noticed that the trailer for Clive Owen's new movie has surfaced on the internet. Children of Men caught our eye because its 'eclipse logo' is a bit similar to the European Privateer 2 'eclipse eye' art. That's about where the similarities end, but the new film does play on some science fiction concepts and takes place about two decades in the future. Clive is the main star next to Julianne Moore and Michael Caine. The setting looks pretty neat and this should be yet another cool opportunity to catch one of our favorite privateers in action again.
