    DVDAnswers, who attended yesterdays press event, provide further details on the DVD release.

    As with past Bond DVD releases, the 2-disc set will feature a ‘Making-Of’ booklet. They’ve also confirmed that there will be an easter-egg on the DVD entitled ‘Hi Jinx!’, which will feature a multi-angle version of Jinx’s exit from the sea in Cuba.

    There is one major disappointment for Bond fans, however, with the exclusion of deleted scenes from the region 2 release. There is currently no word yet on whether the Region 1 release will feature deleted scenes.

    The region 2 release of Die Another Day is available for pre-order from Amazon UK for £16.99.
