Shame they're not including the discrete 7.1 track that came with the 3D version (Samsung exclusive).
yeah, that track would have been nice. on the bright side. it wasn't a natively recorded 7.1 track and was just matrixed at the studio, so any good 7.1 receiver can do about the same effect if it has a good matrixing system.

I'm curious to see whether it's just a new set of extras or if we have a new encode for the video track

When I heard the 7.1 track a friend's place, there were lots of sound effects coming from the rear speakers but almost no music, so if they did matrix the 5.1 soundtrack then I think it was just the sound effects stem (i.e., the dialogue and music stems were left alone). Unfortunately we can't get this kind of separation at home, since the soundtrack we get has all 3 stems married together. That's why I was lamenting the missed opportunity for this re-release.

interestingly enough, the specs didn't tell the whole story... the discrete 7.1 TRUEHD track IS included, replacing the original 5.1 track... and it's a BEAST of a track, let me tell you that.
