Now, you hardcore Twilight fans are going to want to either wait in line at a midnight release, or you can pre-order from sites like Amazon or Barnes and Noble. The cool thing about pre-ordering from Barnes and Noble is that not only do you get the Special 2-disk Edition of the New Moon DVD, but you also get an exclusive Dreamcatcher bag clip. You can only get this Dreamcatcher from B&N though. The Dreamcatcher Bag Clip is a metal dangle finished in antique brass that combines a circular dreamcatcher, a sculptural Wolf Pack-tattoo charm and a Wolf Pack jewelry tag, feathers, and crystals. I admit, it looks pretty sweet.
As for the special features on the 2-disk DVD and Blu-Ray, well, unfortunately this time around there won’t be a commentary featuring New Moon stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, or Taylor Lautner. But, you will get a commentary with director Chris Weitz and editor Peter Lambert.
Along with the commentary there will also be a six-part, behind-the-scenes documentary chronicling the creation of the film, 20-minutes worth of deleted scenes, rehearsal footage from Muse, three music videos from Death Cab for Cutie, Anya Marina and Mute Math. So you are getting a lot of goodies, even though the cast didn’t join in on the commentary fun like in the Twilight DVD.
The DVD will retail for $32.99 and the Blu-Ray for $34.99 … both are a bit expensive if you ask me, but I suppose it’s nothing to the fans. Plus most stores usually have new release DVDs on sale their first week out, like Target did last year. Speaking of Target, they are selling a 3-disc Deluxe Edition of the DVD and with it you get a Target exclusive Collectible Film Cell. 3 disks!
So now you just have to decide where you’re going to get your copy at. Choice choices.
