The bad news is no extras, not even a trailer.:frowning:
and what's so SPECIAL about those special features ?
"Special Features not rated"...good to know we get unrated English Subtitles! Whew...I was worried about that one!
How about the studios change information like that to a box that says "Specifications", and leave the box called "Special Features" for the actual *supplements* (if available)?
What special features would exist anyway?Besides the trailer? My memory is hazy on this but I'm pretty sure I have seen a promotional featurette-style film which showed the huge and very impressive sets being built, but possibly I saw this on one of the news magazine tv shows.
Although I can't say definitively right now what might exist without digging out some articles and old videotapes, I'm big on Altman and I know that this film attracted considerable press and was heavily promoted and merchandised. If they wanted to, they wouldn't have trouble finding *something* to add to the disc. (Edited to add that Brian makes a good point that there might be clearance headaches involved since, as he says, this was a co-production)
(As an aside, here's an example of how heavily merchandised this movie was, in pre-Happy Meal days: there was even official 'Popeye movie' kids' shampoo!)
I'm not gonna complain that this disc is bare-bones. It's clear to me these days that not all of the Altman films I want are going to make it to dvd, so I'm happy that this one will. If a different studio was releasing it, maybe there'd be extra content...but here's what matters most to me: because Paramount has it, this "family film" is being released OAR.
