some more ore less "news" from european and german DVD/BD market.
About the Movie Transporter 2: The Mission:
As far as I know the US Version is censored. The erotic dessous of Katie Nauta are colored blak or red. Additional one scene is stated to be cut some frames.
The German DVD so far is the normal uncensored Cinematic Version, with improved CGI, while theire are french, belgian and UK releases which are somebit longer and containing some unimproved scenes.
(The french, belgian and UK Versions are about 24 seconds longer than the german DVD release wich just kontain the normal cinematic release.)
On June 5th or 6th a new german DVD and BluRay Triple Box is released, containing a version of the movie already screened on television in germany with about 6 minutes more than the french uncensored Version.
Here is a comparison between the german normal DVD and the french version.
And here is a comparison between the french Version and the upcoming german release/TV Version.
Unfortunately both comparisons are in german.
As soon as I know if the new German triple release containing englisch audio I let you know. Poorly the new version of Transporter II is just released in the triple feature. (I preordered the BluRay Edition...)
At the german ofdb.de the US DVDs of Transporter (1) seems to be cut in some small action moments. There some uncut releases of this movie on the european DVD Market.
The australian, the UK and the Hong Kong DVDs seems to be even cut as the US release. The french, belgian, japanese and german Editions are uncut and all containing english audio, and audio in the language of the country.
Edit 25th July.:
The BluRays of The Transporter triple Pack come all with English Audio and english Subtitles. According to the german ofdb.de the DVDs of the triple Feature are containing englisch Sub and Audio, too.
As said before, the german release of Transporter 2 is about 6 minutes longer than the uncensored french release. It has a running time of 94:11 Min with credits, and 87:30 Min without credits.
The Transporter - The Mission extended (longer than the french Version) is avaible now as a normal edition without being in a triple pack... about 14 Euro at amazon.de...
