Missed MONSTERS during it VOD run so I’ve been looking forward to getting this news. MAGNOLIA has announced the date and specs for its home video release of MONSTERS and as they tend to do, they are doing it right.
MONSTERS will be coming at us in a stand-alone 1 disc DVD, a 2 disc DVD featuring a digital copy of my personal favorite, Blu-ray.
The press release doesn’t specify but I’m thinking the single-disc will be bare-bones, feature only but the 2 disc and Blu-ray will come with the following:
– Production on Set featurette
– Editing featurette
– Visual Effects featurette
– Deleted and extended scenes
– HDNet: A Look at Monsters
– Comic Con NYC with Gareth Edwards
– Factory Farmed” short film with intro from Gareth Edwards
– Digital copy of the film
A pretty hefty slate of extras.
In case you haven’t been paying attention, here’s a breakdown of what MONSTERS is all about:
Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain “the creatures”…… Our story begins when a US journalist agrees to escort a shaken tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.
