“Scott Pilgrim” DVD and Blu-ray bursting with extra features
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: By most standards, Edgar Wright’s “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World” underperformed.
Buoyed by a boatload of pre-release publicity – including a major push at San Diego’s ComiCon – the graphic novel adaptation only earned $31M this summer. The common belief was that “Scott Pilgrim” had a niche audience, and they turned out. But that was all.
Expect that same audience to show support when “Scott Pilgrim” hits DVD and Blu-ray on Nov. 9. Universal Studios released details on a DVD-Blu-ray Combo Pack that should satisfy the tech-friendly followers of “Scott.”
Full specs are below, from the studio’s release:
Both the Blu-ray and DVD come loaded with:
Cast commentaries assembled by director, producer and co-writer Edgar Wright.
The 2-disc Blu-ray Combo Pack is packed with :
