The Bourne Supremacy took in over $150 million (and counting) at the box office and Universal Studios Home Video will launch the thriller on DVD on December 7th, in separate anamorphic widescreen and full screen versions.
Each includes English, French and Spanish Dolby 5.1 surround tracks, and while the full specs are not yet in, goodies will include audio commentary, making-of featurettes, deleted scenes and trailers.
Just in from MGM Home Entertainment is their December lineup of new catalog releases, which will be quite an extensive slate led by a number of highly-awaited favorites.
Hot on the heels of Warner’s recent Martin Scorsese box set, MGM will also pull two more gems from its library and give them the full-tilt special edition treatment on December 14th. Making its DVD debut is the director’s somewhat maligned musical New York New York. Presented in non-anamorphic 1.66:1 widescreen and Dolby 5.1 surround, extras include a new audio commentary by Scorsese, deleted scenes and alternate takes, a still gallery and theatrical trailers.
Even more highly awaited is the director’s Oscar-winning Raging Bull, which will get the full anamorphic widescreen and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround treatment.
Extras include commentary by Scorsese and editor Thelma Schoonmaker, plus additional cast and crew and “Storytellers” commentary (participants TBA), the “Before the Fight: Writing and Casting,” “INside the Ring,” “After the Fight” and “The Bronx Bull” featurettes, “LaMotta Defends Title” and “De Niro vs. La Motta” vignettes, the theatrical trailer and a collectible booklet.
MGM will also release The Martin Scorsese Film Collection box, which will include both of the above and the previously released Boxcar Bertha and The Last Waltz, for $69.95.
More great catalog reissues include, at long last, David Lynch’s Wild at Heart, which will make its DVD debut on December 7th. Remastered in anamorphic widescreen and Dolby 5.1, new extras include a new documentary, “David Lynch on the DVD” featurette, an interactive map with additional interviews, a still gallery, the original EPK, and trailers and TV spots.
Rounding out MGM’s holiday lineup is another batch of library titles, all due on December 7th. Watch for Jinxed!, Daddy’s Dyin’…So Who’s Got the Will?, Hi, Mom!, Out Cold, Hound of the Baskervilles, Young Doctors in Love, Smooth Talk and the Robert Englund horror remake The Phantom of the Opera. All are presented in anamorphic widescreen except for Young Doctors in Love, which is non-anamorphic widescreen, and Out Cold, which is full screen only. There are no extras aside from trailers.
