Here's the article from Variety http://www.variety.com/index.asp?lay...goryid=13&cs=1 :
Wow, same day as Back to the Future.
That is awesome news. Im so glad we will see it before the holidays. And it sounds lik eit should be an amazing DVD too!
Oh, but I won't be buying it if it doesn't have DTS!
thanks for the update, Xmas is going to be very expensive indeed.
Mock-confusion aside, I can't wait to own this DVD! Minority Report still stands as my favorite movie of 2002!
This is great news. Hoped it would come out before 2003. DVD File has a bit more information up about the DVD and states that there will be DTS as well as Dolby Digital 5.1 Tracks.
Christmas is going to be great! ...and expensive too
God, I hate to say I missed this one in the theaters (I love Sci-Fi) so I can't wait for this one on disc...
Sounds good enough! Though I'm a bit disappointed that we get only more than an hour if there were hundreds to go around.
Cool, definatly picking it up!
I'm not too bothered by the running time of the featurette, I mean look at The Beginning on the 'SW EP1' dvd. It too was narrowed down from hundreds of hours of footage and it turned out to be one of the best documentaries available.
Well, Episode One had other featurettes, etc that gave it over 3 hours of features. We get over an hour total for six featurettes, which I'm going to assume much of it's talking heads. But I enjoyed the 100 minutes or so of features on A.I., so it won't be a huge problem.
Here are the details from DVD File:
Hot of its hit theatrical run earlier this summer, DreamWorks has just announced a 12/17 street date for Steven Spielberg's Minority Report. Relatively rare for a big Spielberg summer film, this one is making a quick trip to home video, and will come in two flavors: separate widescreen and pan & scan versions, both two-disc sets. Each release will feature Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 surround tracks, and a second disc with over an hour of new featurettes on the making of the film - two years in the making - all shot on hi-def video by longtime Spielberg producer Laurent Bouzereau:
"Minority Report: From Story to Screen" - Spielberg recounting how he approached the characters and storyline
"Deconstructing Minority Report" -- about the think tank formed by Spielberg to image the near-future setting of the film
"The Stunts of Minority Report" - showing off the mixture of computer animation and live-action stunts by Cruise
"ILM and Minority Report" - about the involvement of the fabled Industrial Light and Magic crew in creating the visual effects
"Final Report" - Cruise and Spielberg talk about how the film changed their working relationship and challenged the way they think about life and the near future
"Minority Report Archives" -- a "virtual gallery" of storyboard sequences, original illustrations, production stills, production notes and cast and crew bios.
The disc will also include trailers and TV spots (but as with all Spielberg titles, no audio commentary). There is no set price for either release, but MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) is $19.95. Stay tuned for the full press release, due later this week...
I'd buy this movie even if it was in mono!
Looks like we will get a very nice DVD package of a very good movie!
a nice addition would have been the original short story... though i suppose that'd be easy enough to get
Here are the special features directly from the press release:
5 featurettes plus archives; over an hour of special features;
that, folks, amounts to approximately FIVE TWELVE-MINUTE FEATURETTES.
Special edtion TWO disc set???
To quote Mel Gibson in Signs, "I am insane with anger." (No, not really)
This had better be some kind of sick joke.
This is the worst 2-disc announcement since Unbreakable, which couldn't have had over 30-45 minutes of features.
What a copout, especially since they 100 hours of material to work with.
Actually, USA Today had an article up some time ago that said there were about 17 featurettes in the disc(!). The featurettes above may as well be categories. But I doubt there's only an hour of featurettes. Probably an wpwards of 90 minutes to 2 hours.
It took 2 years to come up with 1 hour of featurettes ?? Was he paid by the hour?
Anyway it's a great film and I wouldn't expect the DVD to be anything less.
If there are like 20 short featurettes, I hope there's a "play-all" button. I HATE those discs that make you needlessly use the remote 30 times just to play an hour or two of features.
