    Likely before- seems to me that most of the commentary tracks are done before the theatrical release.

    I think most of these features are recorded before the movie's release. Extras on last year's Dark Phoenix featured cast and crew talking very highly of the script and production, and proud of what they'd done, as if it was a huge success. There was nothing that mentioned its box office stumble.

    I agree that most are recorded pre-release, but even those recorded after release don't usually discuss failures. They still act like the movie's great even if it flops.

    I do like the commentaries where we find out when they were recorded - and I've heard the odd one that came after release date and the participants mentioned the movie's negative reception...

    I'm glad Drew, who taught ET how to talk with Sesame Street, is no longer attached to that fella. nothing against him personally but he doesn't deserve her. (ok a little against him personally, just a little)

    Sadly, the 4K UHD release has been yanked on both sides of the pond. I was really looking forward to placing it on my 4K UHD shelf, next to Schindler's List.
