Packaging / Design

This is a nice quality digipack even though it's just a slim digi. Everything is done in a nice and glossy fashion and it's also got some really good looking alternate coverart for the front.


Disc contents / Extras

First off, the subtitles listed in the disc specs apply only to the movie. All extras (except the trailers) come with optional subtitles in Chinese, Korean or Thai.

This disc comes with both english DTS and DD 5.1, but it still manages to cram in two Audio commentary tracks to go along with it.

As for menus there's a start up selection language allowing you to choose one of the languages that appear in the subtitles (I'm guessing a bit here as I can't read all the options).

Selecting english will bring up a simple but still ok looking menu system. There's not much animation but some of the menuscreens feature background audio.

Checking out the special features there are 7 Deleted Scenes. The first two are entitled Part 1 and Part 2. These are a series of shorter scenes combined into two deleted segments. The menu also lists the included scenes within these segments as follows. Part 1 : Playing Chess, Washing Carrots in The Oxygen Garden, Coolant Redirection, Cooking and Wake-Up, followed by Part 2 which includes Demolished Oxygen Garden and Searle Meets Capa.

The rest of the scenes are listed with titles in the disc specs but to summarise; it's a nice little bunch of scenes which really help to flesh out the story. And what's even better, they all come with optional commentary by director Danny Boyle.

However, the alternate ending which is even promoted by a banner on the backcover is really quite uninteresting (don't expect to be shocked as it pretty much just an alternate version of the theatrical ending). The deleted scenes can be selected individually or played all at once.

The Web Production Diaries are divided into chapters. This is a good feature but what's annoying is that each chapter comes with an introductery Sunshine logo and also rounds up with som Fox Searchlight credits.

There are two short films presented on the disc which have absolutely NOTHING to do with the main feature. These short films start off with an audio introduction by Danny Boyle explaining why they're on here. And it basically adds up to the fact that he feels that it's a good way to get unknown short films to a broader audience.

With that said, I'm not gonna go into any kind of review for these two shorts as I this is not a movie review website, and also (being as they have nothing to do with the film or it's director) I won't base my final score on the fact that these films were included.

And last but not least, we get two Sunshine trailers.


Sidenotes

From what I know, this release is now completely sold out. The current HK release is most likely presented as nothing but a standard keepcase.
