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 by Cameron) including:
    • The Pleasure of Sofia
    • Dog Porno
    • Career Advice
    • E-Books
    • Great Sex
    • Black Angus
    • Livin’ the Dream
    • and many more!
  • 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
  • “L.E.” Informercial
  • 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

40 Comments

VSimage1

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….

Deep in the Vanilla Sky archives…

As you might have heard, Vanilla Sky was scheduled for release on Blu-ray later this month. Cameron and the crew at Vinyl Films have been working hard on some long promised additional extra features and Paramount has generously provided some extra time to make sure this will be the definitive release of the film.

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!

Many of you have asked about the deleted scenes from Elizabethtown, so we thought it would be a nice holiday/new year treat to share them with you over the next week or so. We will be adding a new, deleted scene each day. These are all from the March, 2003 draft of the script. We hope you like them.

Inquire Within: Vanilla Sky Blu-ray?

83 Comments

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!!

CC, TC and PC

Please send in your questions for Cameron and maybe yours will be part of a future installment of Inquire Within…

Crowe’s Nest: Fast Times Book, IFC Zoo Interview & More!

3 Comments

The Crowe’s Nest is a feature that collects random tidbits, etc. in one blog post. So let’s get started!

  • First off, glad you all enjoyed the Say Anything… deleted scenes. Don’t forget that we’ve already posted some Jerry Maguire and Singles deleted scenes.
  • The Bookfinder has released their 100 Most Sought After Out of Print in 2011 and the Fast Times at Ridgemont High book is ranked at #16. As we’ve previously discussed, Cameron owns the rights to the book, but has no plans to re-release the book at this time. Keep looking for a copy at your local thrift store, used book store or at a garage sale!
  • Cameron chats with Matt Singer over at IFC. The first interview focuses on We Bought A Zoo, Matt Damon and the holiday release date. Part 2 revolves around the Say Anything… sequel (that we’ve previously covered) and Part 3 highlights Jónsi, the music of Zoo and future film plans.
  • Lastly, I wanted to share Scion Magazine‘s quick video interview with Fast Times director Amy Heckerling from a few years back. It’s fun to see her pull Fast Times off her shelf to discuss Cameron’s first book.
