Movie PictureThis is going to be one big, Blu-ray release!
In a story from Home Media Magazine, the Blu-ray Disc version of Spider-Man 3 will be the first next generation title "to deliver for the first time a two-disc Blu-ray set and bonus material in 1080p high-definition resolution."
Sony will be bringing out Spider-Man 3 "as a single-disc standard DVD ($27.99), a two-disc special-edition DVD ($36.95), a UMD ($28.97), a DVD three-pack with Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2, a two-disc Blu-ray Disc edition ($49.95) and the Spider-Man: The High Definition Trilogy with all three films on Blu-ray for $98.95.
It looks like "the Blu-ray editions will include standard DVD bonus material, including bloopers; photo galleries; a Snow Patrol music video; commentary with director Sam Raimi and cast members Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and James Franco; and a commentary with the producers and special effects supervisor, Scott Stokdyk."
Also, Spider-Man: The High Definition Trilogy will offer seamless branching.
"This technology allows a consumer to select on the same Blu-ray Disc either the original theatrical version or the recently released extended version, with more fight sequences," stated Lexine Wong, senior EVP of worldwide marketing for Sony.
The Blu-ray version of this release "will include BD-Java features such as the Blu-meter, a personal book-marking feature. In addition to Java based (interactive) menus, the Blu-ray releases feature both uncompressed PCM audio and the new advanced high-definition Dolby True HD audio codec."
"The Java-based Spider-Man 3 photo gallery will provide fans the opportunity to see exclusive behind-the-scenes photos at variable selectable speeds with continuous, un-interrupted music," Wong said.
