Special Extended Version Of Gladiator Featuring 17 Minutes Of Extra Footage

Ridley Scott (BLADE RUNNER, ALIEN) transports Hollywood to second-century Rome in this rousing historical epic that proudly harkens back to such films as BEN-HUR and SPARTACUS. Russell Crowe plays Maximus, a Roman general who leads the troops in conquering Germania for the empire. When an ageing Marcus Aurelius (Richard Harris) tells Maximus that he'd like him to rule Rome once he's gone, a classic confrontation ensues between the brave and charming soldier--who wants to return home to his wife, son, and farm--and the jealous and conniving Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix), the emperor's only son, who is thirsty for power. Bought as a slave by the profiteering Proximo (Oliver Reed, in his last role), Maximus must kill or be killed in the ring, battling to save not only himself but the future of the very empire that he loves and honours. The film features a terrific battle sequence (that recalls the beginning of SAVING PRIVATE RYAN), huge crowd scenes of thousands of people, and even a little romance, albeit mostly taboo. The impeccably choreographed gladiator scenes are violent yet thrilling, flashing by like lightning. GLADIATOR is a glorious spectacle filled with heart and soul.

Extras great. But disappointed with this version as I believe it doesn't have DTS whereas the original discs do.
The R1 of this 3 disc 'Extended' release also contains the theatrical version. Only the earlier 2 disc special editions got DTS :-(
give me the superbit version anyday ( which i have lol )
was just gonna comment about this offer being listed as expired, cos I just went and brought it! Now, the expired has been taken off so no need.

Nice if you don't already have it - although the extra 15mins and padded out extras wouldn't make me get it
