The U.S BU disc has the original artwork (one of my all time favourite posters/sleeves) and an excellent selection of extras. Good print too.

It's one of the better commentaries. The behind the scenes featurette is also very good.

I remember someone quizzing Optimum about this,and the reply was something like...Due to the money involved for extras in the back catalogue titles,the money available was for putting out a large quantity of Canal's back catalogue with a decent transfer,with little or no extras.The newer releases would come with extras,subtitles etc.
You can't knock Optimum for their sheer output.Yeah it's nice to have releases with extras,of course it is. A lot of the cult titles they put out would probably never see the light of day in the hands of another Studio;
How many times on here do we mention that we'd wish Warner,MGM etc would let some moths out of their vaults?
Perhaps Optimum simply don't have access to materials for some of their films....
Look at their release of Richard Stanley's HARDWARE...absolutely knockout.
Any other region release is gonna be hard pushed to top this.
And probably won't.

Excellent news.
It will also be great to see Rene Clements Hitchcockian thriller RIDER ON THE RAIN finally digitally remasterd.

Even better.The artwork for RIDER ON THE RAIN is pretty cool,but the Embassy VHS was class.Something sinister about it.....
The new Optimum release is taken from the U.S. VHS.....

I think it was in the IMDb alternate versions section for Thief that I read there was some footage cut from the film. When I saw this Region 2 disc of Thief wasn't getting any extras I had my doubts that this new release would have any deleted scenes as extras or deleted footage inserted into the film.
