New Line Home Entertainment has announced 1-disc and 2-disc special editions of Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay which stars John Cho, Kal Penn, and Rob Corddry. A Blu-ray release will also be available. Each will carry an anamorphic widescreen presentation, and English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround track. The extra material has yet to be revealed I'm afraid, but we'll bring you further details shortly. For now though, here's a look at the artowrk for the special edition DVD and Blu-ray releases:

Given New Line's history, I'd expect the audio is actually DTS-HD:MA 7.1, not DD 5.1.

It's better. I actually want to watch the second one again. If you don't have an open mind though most of the jokes will be lost on you.


My favorite moment involves a fence. I want a H&K 2pack. It really is a very funny movie. It's mostly pubic jokes and racism, but it works. It might be the smartest dirty comedy ever made.


And there's a really great NPH Starship Troopers joke too. Rob Cordry is probably the best thing about the film.

WHV has the dvd up but not the BD. Hopefully they will have it before the 30% disappears.

Here's to hoping they keep what was possibly the funniest menu system of any disc.

I also believe that this movie is even funnier than the first entry, but both are hilarious in my opinion.


I noticed a while back on IMDB that AVS member "FilmMixer" worked on the sound mix for this movie. I'm sure the BD won't disappoint on that end.

Love the first one, would pick it up on BD. However, I'm still raging over how (IMHO) freaking terrible this one was. I sat in the theatre totally bored, maybe laughed twice. Was very excited to see these two characters again but I hated it, and wouldn't touch it on BD with a ten foot pole.

Spent a half hour with the menu
I have both on pre-order from Amazon.

Are these 2 titles going to be yet another DNR victims from New Line ?


Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle [Extreme Unrated Edition] review is up at dvdtown.

The New Line video engineers use a dual-layer BD50, VC-1 transfer to reproduce the 1080p high-definition picture. The 1.85:1 ratio widescreen image is very smooth, very clean, and maybe too often very soft. Colors are excellent--deep, bright, and vivid. In fact, it's hard to fault, except to wish for something more in the way of detail and texture.

Let's pray someone at Warner/New Line actually knows what the hell they're doing when it comes to LOTR. I know the extended DVDs even had too much DNR.


I was interested in picking up "...White Castle," but may just hold off. Newline appears to be saving me money lately because of their DNR madness.

Well said. In some sense I am happy that the DNR madness is saving me $$$.



For time being I am going to stick around with Beowulf and Starship Troopers and skip the rest unless they come out with a clean chit.
