The Twilight Saga: New Moon set the single-day box office record thanks to a huge midnight showing turnout and that same potential is forming around the film’s home video release.
Summit Entertainment has chosen to release New Moon on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on March 20, a Saturday. The weekend release will allow for Friday evening release parties at retailers that should drum up huge initial sales.
The second film in the series that made stars out of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will be relatively light on bonus with Blu-ray and DVD sharing the same content. Noticeably missing from Summit’s announcement is any mention for a preview of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, but I would not rule out the possibility of one being added just before release as the same announcement concludes the bonus features listing with “and more!”
- Audio Commentary with Director Chris Weitz and editor Peter Lambert;
- 6-part documentary that takes you behind the scenes
- Exclusive band rehearsal footage with Muse;
- Music videos from Death Cab for Cutie, Anya Marina and Mute Math
Blu-ray tech specs for New Moon include 2.4:1 1080p video and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio support.
