Nominated for nine Academy Awards , including Best Picture, Apollo 13 is now available in an incredible 2 -Disc Anniversary Edition with never-before-seen bonus materials. Produced by Academy Award winner Brian Grazer and directed by Oscar winner Ron Howard, Apollo 13 stars Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, Kevin Bacon, Gary Sinise and Ed Harris in the inspiring and riveting story of the real-life space flight that gripped a nation and changed the world.
There are two versions of the 1995 space adventure on this 10th anniversary DVD set, but it's not what you think. The IMAX edition that played in theaters in 2002 is shorter than the original cut, so there is no new footage. The first major Hollywood film to be reprocessed for viewing on these massive screens, Apollo 13 was shortened by 24 minutes so it could be loaded onto the gigantic reels in the IMAX theaters. The new cut delivers a mostly space-centered film; much of the domestic scenes (featuring Kathleen Quinlan's Oscar-nominated performance) are gone, which may help young space cadets get into the film. The IMAX print is also less wide than the theatrical version (1.66:1 versus 2.35:1) and delivers a DTS soundtrack not found on the theatrical version. Both prints are remastered and look grand. The main features from the initial DVD are intact (the making-of feature and two commentary tracks). The new extras aren't as good: a Dateline segment from 1995 lays down the basic facts of the moon, and a 2003 documentary Conquering Space takes a grand tour of space travel in 45 minutes. --Doug Thomas

|Apollo 13 on Blu-ray, finally||
I have a PS3 fat version. Load times were not an issue here. From the time I put the disk in, the menu was up in less then 2 min. I really liked the fact there were no forced trailers to watch. The audio is worth a purchase. Master DTS is dreamy on this movie.

|Difference Between 2 disc or widescreen collectors edition?||
I was wondering the same thing. What I did hear was that the 2 disc version has deleted scenes, ie. Tom Hanks switching seats with Kevin Bacon upon re-entry, which makes me lean toward the later edition.
