An American Haunting on HD DVD... (Updated Jun 18)

Maleficio (An American Haunting) will make its debut on HD DVD in Spain on July 11 instead of March 14 or Feb 21. (This title is distributed by Lions Gate Entertainment in North America.)

The main feature will be presented in 1080p High Definition 16x9 2.35:1 with Dolby Digital-Plus 5.1 (English, Catalan) and DTS-HD 5.1 (Spanish) audio options. Only Spanish subtitles are provided.

Furthermore, what caught my attention was the bonus materials listing. Among them, the video commentary of the director was mentioned. Could it possibly be a Picture-in-Picture director's commentary that uses HDi or the same one ported over from the DVD release? If this title indeed contains the Picture-in-Picture director's commentary, it could possibly be the first HD DVD title released exclusively to markets outside US (although it is possible to get it as the region codes have yet to kick in) to include advanced HDi features. I've been told that this video commentary should be similar to the one found on the DVD release, but can anyone confirm this?

Other bonus materials include interviews with cast, trailers, production featurettes and 3 alternative endings.
