On Sept. 13 the special edition of the Rob Marshall-directed motion picture is set to hit stores in the U.S. The DVDs will feature the 113-minute film in DTS 5.1 Digital Surround Sound. Extra features, according to a press release, will include the 16-track "Chicago" soundtrack; extended musical performances; song rehearsals; Chita Rivera's Encore; "From Stage to Screen: The History of 'Chicago'"; profiles of director Marshall, production designer John Myre and costume designer Colleen Atwood; a VH1 Behind the Movie segment; the deleted musical number "Class," featuring Catherine Zeta-Jones and Queen Latifah; a behind-the scenes featurette; and feature commentary with director Marshall and screenwriter Bill Condon. "Chicago" — based on the award-winning John Kander/Fred Ebb musical of the same name — opened wide Feb. 8, 2003, and became Miramax's top-grossing film. Starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, Renée Zellweger and Richard Gere, the motion picture garnered six Academy Awards in all, including one for Zeta Jones for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of killer showgirl Velma Kelly. Other "Chicago" Oscar winners included John Myhre and Gord Sim for Best Art Direction, Colleen Atwood for Best Costume Design, Martin Walsh for Best Film Editing and Michael Minkler, Dominick Tavella and David Lee for Best Sound.
