It’s almost here! After many, many months of work (and your infinite patience), the Vanilla Sky Blu-ray will be released on June 30th. Listen, we know that our promised May date did not come to fruition, but it wasn’t due to a lack of effort. Sometimes scheduling delays are unavoidable for a variety of reasons, but with Warner officially announcing the release, the June 30th date is now final.

In addition to the brand new cover art (pictured above), the Blu-ray will include the theatrical version and the extended/alternate ending version (complete with commentary by Cameron on this alternate ending). Here’s a list of the extras:

  • 13 Deleted/Extended/Alternate Scenes (with optional commentary on many of them by Cameron) including:
    • Be Real
    • Two Daughters
    • Career Advice
    • Dog Porno
    • eBooks
    • Great Sex
    • He Gets It All
    • Livin’ the Dream
    • The Pleasure of Sofia
    • Memorial
    • Attention to Detail
    • “Fix Your Face” Jump
    • “L.E.” Informercial
  • 2  new “vignettes” “Mask Test” and “Kurt Russell Single Take”
  • Feature Commentary with Cameron Crowe, Nancy Wilson and (special guest) Tom Cruise (from the DVD release)
  • Photo Gallery with Audio Introduction by Photographer Neal Preston
  • Music Video “Afrika Shox” by Leftfield/Afrika Bambaataa
  • Gag Reel
  • “Hitting it Hard” featurette
  • “Prelude To A Dream” featurette
  • and much more!

Here’s an exclusive first look at the back cover and BD disc art:

A Vanilla Sky Blu-ray Update

42 Comments

To all Vanilla Sky fans out there eagerly awaiting the new Blu-ray (as we are!):

Sincerest apologies for the constant and consistent delays in the release date for the Vanilla Sky Blu-ray.  There have been more than a few roadblocks on our way to bringing this to you, but we have fought our way through and have landed on a May 5, 2015 release date, one that will NOT push any further!  The biggest reason for these delays is that we want to ensure that the package is absolutely the best it can be, PACKED with extras (Original ending, anyone?  Deleted and extended scenes?  Director commentary on most of the extras?!?  and much, much more).  We promise it will be so worth the wait!

One of the great challenges in revisiting a film after all this time is the clearance dotting of the “i”s and crossing of the “t”s — and we’d rather take the time to ensure that we can include as much as possible, rather than chalk it up to “oh well, we can’t clear it in time, let’s just pull (insert extra feature here) from the Blu-ray.”  We’d rather push the release and include the near-impossible than release something that is less than we know it can be.  Simple as that.

So, with that in mind, again please accept our sincerest thanks for your unending patience, and please be sure to let us know what you think of the release once the blessed day is upon us.  And know that all of the blood, sweat and tears that went into it was for the purpose of shedding more light on those not-quite-so forgotten gems, those moments we hated losing for the greater good of the film back in the day, and to give everyone a deeper look into those majestic Vanilla Skies….

Pretty wild, huh? Singles turns 21 years old today. We are still hard at work on the Singles Blu-ray and hope you’ll be watching it in your living room sometime next year. More on that later. In case you missed it, here’s the nine deleted scenes we added to the site a couple of years ago. Enjoy!
