Paramount Gives Blu-Ray Cloverfield Date

Paramount gives Blu-Ray date for CloverfieldFinally we can all stop our complaining, hemming, and hawing because Paramount has announced its initial Blu-Ray lineup, and of course Cloverfield is on it.
Following The Spiderwick Chronicles, Face/Off and Next, the Blu-Ray edition of Cloverfield will land in stores on June 3rd. New to the disc will be the feature-length “Special Investigation Mode” with “added details about the film”, whatever that means.

Commentaries, making-ofs, deleted scenes, and alternate endings will also be included; Blu-Ray’s got a lot of space to fill so I hope they make this worth the double dip that I’m sure it’ll be to most of us!

We’ll get you art as soon as we can; stay tuned!

    I bought the standard DVD, sure. Patience was not an issue. If they announced the Blu-Ray release the same time as the standard and they were both available to own the same day I would hav gotten the standard DVD anyway.

    I said in the earlier news story about the initial announcement of DVD release the same thing MM said – for a movie made to look like shit, why am I going to spend more $$ to see crap quality in hi-def? I’m not.

    As Kryten said, it’s annoying that they did not announce the date when they announced the other. It’s a shify practice…as when there was no Blu-Ray release dates stated fo The Mist or There Will Be Blood. You know they are coming out, but no date has been issued yet, none that I am aware of.

    It’s a BS double dipping shenanigan.

    MM, I want the crispest picture possible so I can, hopfully, see the monster in this monster movie.

  • Messiahman

    Heh. I find it hilarious that a film made to intentionally look like an amateur video is being released on Blu-Ray. Kinda defeats the point, no?

    I didn’t buy the DVD, so patience isn’t the issue. It’s the fact that Paramount didn’t bother to announce the blu-ray edition until afterwards.

  • G.D.

    Really? Did you guys not think that a BD edition wasn’t coming out? And you didn’t have the patience to wait and see, since Paramount hadn’t announced ANY BD releases? Jesus…

  • thedudeabides

    Yeah seriously. That pisses me off.

  • Kryten Syxx

    nice of them to wait until after the DVD release to confirm a blu-ray edition.

  • thedudeabides

    Nope. I’m not going to double dip.
