Breaking Dawn DVD and BluRay Buyers Guide and Review

The other day we linked you to a terrific buyers guide that breaks down all the special features that are found in the editions coming out in the USA. Things may vary a bit abroad, but you can find our USA version here.

Hypable also reviewed the DVD and BluRay at a special screening.

Never before has Summit-Lionsgate released an Extended Version of one of the Twilight films. Considering that one book had been split into two movies in the case of Breaking Dawn, the idea of an extended cut is even more surprising. While at the studio’s offices last weekend to screen the longer movie, an executive told us that they had hoped to have it out when the film was first released on DVD/Blu-ray last year. The problem was that director Bill Condon was busy editing Part 2, so there was no time for him to put together a longer version of Part 1. They understand there will be accusations of this being a quick money grab, but they insist that they would’ve preferred Part 1 Extended Edition was released last year so that sales could be stronger than they likely will be now.

  1. Two things I’d like to see:

    1) A DVD of all deleted scenes from all five films: Edward attacks Bella in Twilight, Bella’s nightmare in New Moon etc. It would just be convenient to have them all on the same disc.

    2) A supercut of all five films into about a single feature about three hours long. I figure that the first third should be Twilight, another third for New Moon & Eclipse, and the final third for Breaking Dawn.

  2. Rehavidas says:

    I would love to see a DVD of just bloopers from all the movies. That would be awesome. And it would be nice if they had a commentary with the whole Cullen coven and Taylor on one of the movies. I’m sure it would be both insightful and hilarious. I would pay good money for that lol.

  3. Now that I have seen the extended version of BD pt 1. I say it is worth the money and think Bill should have fought to keep that 7 minutes in the original release. And I also think they will release a Christmas package with all 5 movies and the deleted scenes we want to see. It’s all about money and that is how they will get more out of me.

  4. I haven’t seen it mentioned on this site, but Best Buy has what seems to be an exclusive 5 movie blu-ray set. If you’re looking for a boxed set, that’s the place to go. It is out of stock online but it’s listed for $45 which is a great price for five blu-rays.

  5. But is that the one dvd (just the movie) or the two?
