5.0 out of 5 stars US Extended Edition received, November 27, 2011
This review is from: Dragon Tattoo Trilogy: Extended Edition [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Received the blu-ray extended edition from Amazon.ca (Canada) on Nov. 25th. Pre ordered in September. This is likely the same product that will be shipped in the States as the sticker on the front mentions over 2 hours of additional footage not seen in the US. The back of the box states that "this complete version of the international hit series restores notable characters and subplots, most significantly in the portrayal of Erika Berger".

Each movie is on its own disc, and split between Part 1 and 2 for each movie. I assume that is how it was shown on Swedish TV. I've never seen the movie versions so I can't tell what the differences are in content.

All 3 features are available with the original Swedish language with English subtitles or an English language version.

The fourth disc has the special features and is 2 hrs, 2 minutes long. It includes a 53 minute documentary detailing the phenomenon of the Dragon Tattoo trilogy and the personal history of Stieg Larsson.

I've only watched the first disc and enjoyed it very much. Can't wait to watch the rest!

Good info.
Do you [or anyone] have an opinion as to whether the blu-ray version
justifies the almost double price?

Well, now they're $ similar! Go figure!

Thank you.
Will

Hi, I haven't seen the DVD version so I can't comment on how much better it is. However I'm not disappointed in the transfer, I tend to buy blu-ray exclusively. At the time of ordering the price was $54.99, which was very reasonable.

Do the discs come in cardboard holders, like the shorter Blu-ray trilogy, or in plastic cases that lift the disc away from the surface? I know that Blu-ray discs have a scratch-resistant surface but that doesn't mean they can never be scratched.

The discs are well packaged in my opinion. You slide the inside of the box out of the cardboard container. This folds out into four sections and each disc is held in place in its own plastic spindle. You lift the disc out without worrying about scratching it. Hope this helps.

Thank you for your reply. This is exactly what I hoped for.

Ironically, the blu-ray is now cheaper than the dvd!

I guess I better strike now while the iron is hot. ;)
