Extras will include two audio commentaries with the cast and crew, a behind-the-scenes documentary, two featurettes, 10 minutes of "never before seen footage, the "Land of a Million Drums" music video, and some great little easter eggs to boot.

This DVD will be available in separate anamorphic widescreen and fullscreen releases, and the extras will include two audio commentaries from director Christopher Nolan, actress Hilary Swank and other crew members; deleted and extended scenes with optional commentary; five featurettes: The Making of Insomnia, Christopher Nolan Interviews Al Pacino, exploration of cinematography, a look at the actual sleeplessness disorder, and a gallery of theatrical posters, stills and production designs; a trailer; and DVD-ROM weblinks.
