SHAUN DVD RELEASE UPDATE
DVD Answers reports that Universal?s British video arm will release a jam-packed DVD of the zombie film SHAUN OF THE DEAD in the UK September 6. Priced at ?19.99, the disc will sport four (!) audio commentaries: 1) Director/co-writer Edgar Wright and star/co-writer Simon Pegg; 2) Pegg and co-stars Nick Frost, Dylan Moran, Kate Ashfield and Lucy Davis; 3) actors Bill Nighy and Penelope Wilton; and 4) the zombies themselves! Other supplements include extended scenes with commentary, outtakes, the ?Man Who Would Be Shaun? featurette (with Pegg and Frost impersonating Sean Connery and Michael Caine), an altered ?Funky Pete? sequence in which the character?s swearing scene is redubbed, three comic-strip sequences that explain some of the plot holes, a ?TV Bits? collection of extended versions of the television programs seen in the movie, a ?Raw Meat? making-of featurette, five trailers and TV spots, three zombie still galleries, a storyboard comparison and a Zomb-O-Meter trivia track. Whew!
U.S. audiences, meanwhile, will get to see SHAUN on the big screen starting September 19, when it opens in select cities via Rogue Pictures, with a nationwide break a week later on September 26. Look for updates soon at the movie?s official website to tie in with the U.S. debut. The movie has its North American premiere this Friday, July 23 at Montreal?s Fantasia film festival.
