While we continue to wait (impatiently) for Vanilla Sky to be released on Blu-ray, you can get your HD fix as Netflix is currently streaming the 2001 film in high definition. In a related note, Pearl Jam Twenty is also streaming in HD.
Pearl Jam has just announced a re-release of the PJ20 Deluxe Edition Blu-ray or DVD that’s been sold out for awhile. It will be identical in video content to the original release, but will come in different package. The release date is November 13th. If you missed the deluxe edition the first time, you can order yours over at Pearl Jam’s official site.
That’s right. We Bought A Zoo is out today in the UK on Blu-ray. Extras should mirror those in other countries. There’s still a few countries left (listed below), but we are just about finished with Zoo and getting ready for the next project . . .
As you may know, Cameron is a big fan of Harold and Maude, Hal Ashby’s 1971 cult classic starring Bud Cort and Ruth Gordon. Criterion has recently released the film on DVD and Blu-ray and we wanted to bring it to your attention. If you haven’t seen it, we urge you to give it a look. The disc is also filled with some great extra features.
MTV shares this clip about music and its use on the set of We Bought A Zoo. Actors Scarlett Johansson, Thomas Haden Church and Matt Damon all chime in with their thoughts. This clip is part of a longer feature on the Zoo Blu-ray.
With the North American release of We Bought A Zoo on Blu-ray and DVD just around the corner (April 3rd), we thought you’d like an exclusive sneak peak at We Shot A Zoo, a documentary on the making of the film. This clip explores the casting and rehearsal process. The full length version of the documentary is available on the Blu-ray Combo pack and a shorter version of the doc (It’s A Zoo!) is included on the DVD release.
Welcome to another edition of Inquire Within… Through your submissions, Cameron will answer your questions in his own words.
Tony S.: Just wondering if there are any plans for a Blu-ray edition of Vanilla Sky?
Cameron: Thanks for the question, Tony. The fact is that we’ve been hearing more and more about Vanilla Sky lately. On our recent travels for We Bought A Zoo, there were a lot of questions about the movie, and a lot of passionate fans who wanted to discuss it. It’s fueled our desire here at Vinyl Films to start planning the Blu-ray, with a new commentary track, the original ending included, and a lot more Kurt Russell, Michael Shannon, and Tilda Swinton among other elements. I think ultimately it will come down to Paramount hearing from the fans, so feel free to write ‘em and tell ‘em you’re interested. It feels like the time has come back around for the movie, which was certainly polarizing in the day, coming as it did right after 9/11… but has now settled into its own psychedelic groove. Certainly would be a joy for all of us to dive back in and pull out some of the rarities that were such a big part of the early cuts of “V Sky.” Tech support!!
