The bonus plan.Posted: February 10, 2011
I hope nobody is too upset about the lack of “bonus” material on the Interplanetary DVD (now available for pre-order). The disc includes the teaser trailer and a commentary track featuring Stacey, John, and me. In addition to that, I’m working on a few more commentary tracks that’ll be available online (for free, of course).
I mention this because a movie journalist friend recently told me the ideal Interplanetary DVD would contain outtakes, deleted scenes, and a no-holds-barred “making of” documentary. I’d love to have all that stuff on the DVD, too. But Interplanetary was a tough movie to shoot. And putting together a good documentary would be like making a whole other movie. Or at least half a movie.
I will try to put together some outtakes and a couple of deleted scenes and post them online. As soon as I can find some time (ha). And, if enough folks express interest, maybe I’ll put together a “making of” doc in time for the five-year anniversary of the movie’s DVD release.
Here’s another opportunity to win an Interplanetary DVD. This one is from our pals over at HorrorTalk.com.
Ouch. Based on this in-depth script review at Comics101.com, David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman TV show sounds like a train wreck waiting to happen.
If you grew up in the 1980s, you probably remember the Saturday morning staple Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends. Apparently, there was another Spidey show on the air around the same time. The latter was syndicated and featured no amazing friends. It would be nice if Marvel (or corporate overlord Disney) would put all of these Spider-Man iterations out on DVD. (also via Comics101.com)
Get the Dave Gibbons “Journal” font and write your next manifesto Rorschach-style.
This: JLA: One Million. (Now that I’ve blogged the link, maybe I will finally get around to actually ordering it, which I’ve been meaning to do for years.)
I wonder if this pocket gizmo would work as a portable projector for a rock band’s stage show. For kind of a super-low-rent Pink Floyd thing. (via Stacey)
Lastly (and pretty much least-ly), meet Evan Stone, peer-to-peer pirate hunter.
