Buena Vista has announced a street date of November 7th for Disney & Pixar's blockbuster Cars
. The single-disc release will feature a 2.35:1 anamorphic transfer and 5.1 DTS sound. Extras will include a new animated short Mater and the Ghostlight
, the Oscar nominated short One Man Band
, a behind-the-scenes featurette, several deleted scenes, and a preview for Disney & Pixar's upcoming feature, Ratatouille
P.S. I have that a 2-disc "Special Edition" of Cars is
in the works, but have no official confirmation.
Now, on the complete opposite end of the spectrum:
Lionsgate Home Entertainment has announced a 2-disc unrated director's cut of Saw II
, which will street on October 24th (to coincide with the theatrical release of Saw III
) The film will be presented in its original 1.85:1 aspect ratio, with Dolby Digital 5.1 EX and DTS-ES 6.1 audio tracks. Extras will include two commentaries, one with creators James Wan and Leigh Wannell and a second with director Darren Lynn Bousman, production designer David Hackl, and editor Kevin Greutert. Other extras include The Making of Saw II, The Making of the Saw Story, and Jigsaw featurettes.
P.S. This one's BIG!!!
The official release of the original 1964 TV series The Addams Family
, starring John Astin and Carolyn Jones is coming October 24th.
MGM is producing the set, with Fox acting as distributor. Extras are said to include cast interviews, bloopers, and behind the scenes footage. That's the good news. The bad news is that this may not be a complete season 1 set, but rather a "best of" compilation. More news when I have it.
