    There's a pocket for one, but mine didn't have a booklet in it. Is there
    one, or is this a weird packaging goof by Uni? And if there is one,
    should I exchange my copy? I mean, am I missing anything jaw-droppingly
    essential here?

    Not wild about this digipak thing. Would rather have a keepcase any day.
    But I'm glad the movie is anamorphic now anyway.

    I actually went to Dvdcompare on this (at someone's suggestion) and
    the differences between versions are the new anamorphic transfer and
    addition of a Spanish 5.1 track vs. non-anamorphic but with isolated
    score track (accessed via one of the extras). Everything else is
    shared on both versions, so it's the new transfer in a digipak vs. the
    isolated score in an amaray. I also had the original, so I swapped
    discs and kept the amaray case, but gave up the isolated score. No
    sooner do we kill snappers than digipaks appear. Damnation!

    No. Amazingly, Universal has done away with all forced trailers on their
    more recent releases.

    What's even more amazing about it is there hasn't been so much as a peep
    about it in this group. That's a little strange when you take into
    account that just 8 months ago, 4 out of every 10 posts here was about
    Universal's forced trailers.
