'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' to Hit DVD and Blu-ray on …
Okay, got it? Good. Now turn to the month of March and draw a big fat circle around March 20th because that's the day The Twilight Saga: New Moon will hit DVD and Blu-ray. But Erik, you say – isn't March 20th a Saturday? And don't DVDs usually get released on a Tuesday? Yes, they usually do – but with a DVD this big, retailers want to host some snazzy midnight release parties, which means they need a time when the kids won't have to get up for school the next day.
So there it is – March 20th. I imagine you want to know what your purchasing options are, right? Well, they haven't released all the details yet, but here's what we do know: you'll be able to pick up either a Two-Disc Special Edition DVD or a Special Edition Blu-ray – both of which will include the following:
Audio Commentary by director Chris Weitz and editor Peter Lambert
Six-Part Documentary takes you behind the scenes of the film
Rehearsal Footage with Muse, who is featured on the hit soundtrack
Three Music Videos from Death Cab for Cutie, Anya Marina and Mute Math
The press release does promise more, so there's still a chance for some tasty deleted scenes, though chances are they're saving those for another edition. The pre-sale begins on January 26th, just so you early birds are aware.
Will you be picking up the DVD? Will you be attending any midnight release parties? Let us know your plans in the comments below!
