Cloverfield Drops Today

“America’s answer to Godzilla” — or at least “J.J. Abram’s answer to Godzilla” drops on DVD today. Cloverfield is a DVD that I’ve been looking forward to purchasing since I first saw the movie at the local cineplex back in January. I dug the movie back when I originally saw it and gave it a rather favorable review. Of course, the main feature to look forward to with the DVD release of Cloverfield is having the ability to pause the movie and study images of the monster in detail, as well as catching those little nuances and clues that may have been missed while viewing in the theater. The disc is scheduled to include an anamorphic widescreen transfer, an English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround track and the following bonus material, with the two alternative endings perhaps being the most intriguing:

  • Commentary: Commentary by Director Matt Reeves
  • Featurette: The Making of Cloverfield
  • Featurette: Cloverfield Visual Effects
  • Featurette: I Saw It! It’s Alive! It’s Huge
  • Featurette: Clover Fun
  • Additional Scenes: Congrats Rob
  • Additional Scenes: When You’re in Japan
  • Additional Scenes: I Call That a Date
  • Additional Scenes: It’s Going to Hurt
  • Additional Scenes: Alt Ending #1
  • Additional Scenes: Alt Ending #2
  • Easter Eggs: Slusho!
  • Easter Eggs: Person of Interest – JLVD Video 2
  • Easter Eggs: Person of Interest – JLVD Video 5
  • Easter Eggs: Person of Interest – JLVD Video 9
  • Easter Eggs: Person of Interest – JLVD Video 11
  • Easter Eggs: Rack ‘Em & Pack ‘Em
  • Easter Eggs: Fighting the X

Now while there are plenty of extras for the curious or most die hard “Cloverphile” (yes, the term that I coined for Cloverfield fans resurfaces — and the domain name is still available for any true Cloverphile that wants to run with it) I had originally thought that there was going to be more with the DVD release. Perhaps that’s somewhere down the line with a “special edition” release.
