Title Best
Longest Day, The: Special Edition (Remastered)R4

    In comparison with the original Region 1 release (an anniversary release has yet to issue), this Region 4 release misses out on:

  • Additional trailers for Patton and Tora! Tora! Tora!
  • English Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtrack
  • THX certification (for those few who think this may have some meaning)

    The Region 1 release misses out on:

  • 16x9 enhancement
  • Featurette - Hollywood Backstory: The Longest Day
  • Featurette - D-Day Revisited

    In comparison with the original Region 2 release, this Region 4 release misses out on:

  • Theatrical Trailer
  • Additional trailers for Patton and Tora! Tora! Tora!
  • Subtitle options

    In comparison with the Region 2 Anniversary release, this Region 4 release misses out on:

  • Theatrical Trailer
  • Additional trailers for Patton, Tora! Tora! Tora! and The Thin Red Line

    Interestingly, from the review found on DVD Times, there may be subtitle issues regarding the foreign language in the main feature. If that is the case, then it would seem that Region 4 now becomes the better option for the film - aside from the trailers, we have the same extras but with the subtitles correctly displayed in the main feature for the foreign languages. There was a collector's edition box produced in the United Kingdom that would have been a treat for devotees of the film, as it included eight lobby cards, a booklet, a Senitype image from the film and a reproduction poster. Other Region 2 releases (Belgium and Denmark for instance) all seem to offer a similar package as the "normal" United Kingdom release.
