Not so Bad Santa
One of last year’s biggest hits, the $176-million grossing comedy Elf will at last hit DVD on November 16th. The latest in New Line Home Entertainment’s Infinifilm line, this two-disc set will presented in anamorphic widescreen with DTS and Dolby Digital tracks and plenty of extras. Goodies include separate audio commentary tracks with director Jon Favreau and star Will Ferrell, a subtitle Fact Track, no less than nine making-of featurettes (both “All Access Pass” and Inifinifilm-exclusive “Beyond the Movie” varieties), deleted scenes, a soundtrack music cue index, theatrical trailers, and ROM exclusives including a Script Viewer and more to be announced.
She’s a Big Girl Now
Only one film this year dared to ask the question: what if Tom Hanks was reincarnated as Jennifer Garner? The answer? She would be 13 Going on 30, which gave the Alias Emmy-winner a modest little sleeper hit this past winter. Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment will release the film on August 3rd, complete with an anamorphic widescreen transfer, Dolby Digital 5.1 surround track, two audio commentaries with director and actors Garner and Mark Ruffalo, the “Making of 13 Going on 30” and “I Was a Teenage Geek” featurettes, 18 deleted and extended scenes, two music videos, a gag reel, the “80s Outfit Challenge” and “Then And Now” interactive games, and theatrical trailers.
Universal Studios Home Video will release the box office bomb Envy on August 10th. Directed by Barry Levinson and starring (in his 1,247th film this year) Ben Stiller, the DVD will feature both anamorphic widescreen and full screen versions, a Jack Black scene index, still gallery, filmographies and theatrical trailers.
