A director’s cut of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is coming out on Tuesday. It includes all sorts of interviews, commentary, and making ofs. It’s disappointing that they didn’t include the episode from the original series on which the movie is based.
The Fellowship of the Ring is also out on DVD on Tuesday. Buyer beware…a four-disktravaganza of FOTR is being released in mid-November, so you might want to hold off on the first release. The extended release appears to raise the bar for DVD extras…there’s a 208-minute director’s cut of the film, commentary by 30 of the cast and crew, and two whole disks of storyboards, behind-the-scenes, mini-movies, and interactive features. On a geek’s treasure map, this would probably be buried right under the X.
