THE PASSION OF THE DVD:

THE PASSION OF THE DVD: The Digital Bits, whose motto is “We Know DVD!”–and they do–is reporting that The Passion of the Christ will be out on DVD on August 31st:

There will be few (if any) extras, so that the maximum video bit rate can be achieved for the film presentation. The disc will include both anamorphic widescreen and full frame versions, as well as audio in the original Aramaic/Latin in both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 surround (with English and Spanish subs). Sources are telling us that a more elaborate special edition release is in the works, for a possible Easter 2005 release.

They have links to further news about the DVD, as well as a cover photo of the version to be released in August.
