DEL TORO DISCUSSES HELLBOY DVD
Even though HELLBOY doesn't open till April, it's never too early to start thinking about the eventual DVD release, and an interview with director Guillermo del Toro over at CountingDown.com reveals that an amazing disc package is on the way. The regular release in August will have the theatrical version of the film with some extras, but arriving in December will be a two- or three-DVD set containing a longer cut (130 minutes, 20 minutes longer than the theatrical edition), plus tons of supplemental goodies.
In the interview, del Toro drops some hints about what to expect: 'We have interactive digital comics that Mike [Mignola] did, we have the whole program about the BPRD, we have three commentary tracks?we're gonna have the actors, who we're gonna have on an isolated screen, we're gonna have my commentary with [director of photography] Guillermo Navarro, we're gonna have a commentary with Mike Mignola, we have an interview with Mike Mignola and with me about comics and pulp detectives, we have a great feature with Scott McCloud about comics and film, which is very neat. And on top of all of that, we have all the regular extras that you might expect. We have cartoons that are playing in Hellboy's room isolated in their own little chapter. We have the UPA cartoons of GERALD McBOING-BOING, and THE TELLTALE HEART, which are masterpieces. We also have an isolated score track...it's really gonna be loaded.'
