Does anyone know if there are plans for different versions of the movie to be sold through different stores this time? Wondering if the "Tar-jay" or "Wally World" versions will have different special features. Would really love an extended version but I don't see that happening so soon.
Judging from ALL of the previous Twilight releases, it seems inevitable that we'll see a retailer exclusive with extra bonus features not available everywhere else. I find it incredibly annoying, as a special features junkie. I HATE retailer exclusives. It gives an unfair advantage to certain retailers, and it only hurts the fans.
I doubt we'll see much of extended editions for Breaking Dawn, Part I. It was split into two movies for a reason. Though, I'm sure there will be a large number of deleted scenes.
There are versions specific to the retailer. I own the first three and was unaware of the sneakiness in marketing. But if this helps: I think Walmart or Kmart had the best special sets. I just saw it today. I'm a huge fan of both the movies and the book. Unfortunately, I was so underwhelmed with this movie. I will wait till number two comes out and hopefully there will be some sorta set. I saw it at matinee so did not paty full price. The script writer really did a disservice.Hope this helps...
Yes, both Wally and Tar-jay offer their own versions and list what's included. I could find no such description on the Amazon version, which is disturbing. This will be the first movie I buy from some other source.
It is looking like the special features are either the box itself or some little trinket. I just don't want to get a DVD that doesn't have the same special features as another version. Does it seem as if all the DVDs are going to be the same this go around?
Target in most areas is doing a midnight release, you get a ticket at customer service at 9pm on 2/10, hang around until 11, I actually just called the Target near me, and they told me to come in at 9, get a ticket for the movie I want to buy, then at 11 they have the sneak peek of pt 2, then you are able to turn thr ticket that you got in for whichever copy of the movie you chose. They have a SE that has flowers from the wedding set, with a COA that comes with it, and also screen shots from the movie and the set.
Amazon blu ray does not have the special features it says it does in the ad???is that what you found out?? please tell me as i have it ordered and with out even the puny amount of special extras i wont want it from them..who has the deleted and extended scenes??do you know??thanks
Originally, the special features were NOT included in the blu ray description, which is why I contacted them. The cust serv person said apparently they had no special editions, as only the movie was listed on the disc & I should send a request to another dept, which I did. I couldn't imagine all blu rays not having the same features and suspected it was an oversight when writing the description. Apparently, that was the case as the ad has been rewritten.
thank you for clearing that up. very helpful. now do you also know who what where the deleted scenes are? i ordered the blu ray but the extra deleted scenes are not in it and i am assuming they are someplace. but i dont know where. do you? thanks again
Oddly, there are no deleted or extended scenes this time around. Who knows, Summit/Lionsgate may be planning an entire blooper and outtake disc once BD 2 comes out.) But the "making of" feature reportedly has lots of fun footage both of actual filming and BTS.
There are rumors of an extended cut of the movie being released in a blu-ray/dvd combo at a later date. It wouldn't surprise me if they did that so they could double dip. Get people to buy this early release and then advertise the extended cut so people buy another copy.
So I bought mine from FYE and I put on the subtitles... But I have like 6 different subtitles to choose from if I use my Blu Ray remote to turn it on (instead of going into the screen itself). When I selected "English: 5" I noticed there is commentary from the actors, Stephanie Meyer, and the director... But there's no way to actually turn the audio for this on?? It's not the same as the Director Commentary. Did anyone else notice this? It's cool but kind of annoying to read, especially since there are so many commentators.
Different versions: There is the normal Blu-Ray disc version, which is available through Amazon and most retailers. There is the Target version which comes in a different case, but has all the same special features. The Wal-Mart Bella's dress edition is a bit of a rip-off. The wedding dress box is a cheap cardboard box, with the regular Blu-Ray disc case contained inside. There are bonus special features on this version, in the form of music videos. Nothing else is different.
I was wondering why there were no deleted scenes or anything. The rumor of an extended edition clarifies that.
thanks Omar. i wonder if there will be an extended version. anything to get more $$ out of the fans. they are relentless and now that Summit is sold it will be interesting to see how the new owners intend to monatize thier very expensive Twilight fanchise. i really think the air is about out of that baloon and this from a real fan like you wouldnt believe.
I have to disagree with you about the Walmart edition. What makes it special is the "fabric poster" which is more like a large scarf with a lovely picture of the bride & groom. Everyone who's seen mine wishes they'd bought that edition.
The poster is fine. I gave mine away to a much bigger Twilight fan. What annoyed me is the fact that Wal-Mart's website led me to believe that it was a special case, like what Target does. But instead it's just a cheap cardboard box with the regular case inside of it.
At this point, I haven't been able to substantiate any of the rumors (which makes sense, since they're rumors). But I would not be at all surprised if Summit decided to release extended editions of Breaking Dawn pt 1 and 2. Director Bill Condon has talked at length about how the movies were considerably longer than what is released in theaters. He said recently that Breaking Dawn Part 2 was cut from 2 hours and 15 or so minutes to 1 hour and 56 minutes. Why they want to cut the movies down, I don't know. Unless, of course, they're saving for an Extended Edition home video release.
