Twilight’s Kristen Stewart’s “The Runaways” gets DVD and Blu-ray release date

By Kim Palacios

HollywoodNews.com: A July 20th date has finally been set for the home video release of Kristen Stewart’s “The Runaways”. MTV had the exclusive this morning, when it announced specifics on when the volume will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray, and what the discs will include.

Unlike the Twilight franchise, which has seen a dizzying variety of special edition DVDs that have confused fans with nuanced extras and features, “The Runaways” video release will be predictably more straightforward. All formats will include commentary with Dakota Fanning, Kristen Stewart, and Joan Jett herself; also standard are two featurettes called “Plugged In: Making the Film” and “The Runaways”. Internet-TV-enabled Blu-Ray users will be able to access a program (called movieIQ + sync) that allows them to pull real time information about the film through a special feature of the disc.

This is good news for fans, especially for those who felt left in the lurch when it came to seeing the film on the big screen. The video’s pre-sales are rumored to be inordinately high, which some speculatively attribute to “The Runaways” limited theater distribution.

For more info on how to plug into a slew of giveaways and other events connected to the release, read the original article posted on MTV.com.
