Upcoming Spy DVDs: RED
DVD Active reports that Summit Entertainment will release this fall's ensemble spy hit RED on January 25 as a Special Edition DVD, a Special Edition Blu-ray and a movie-only Blu-ray. Extras on the DVD will include deleted and extended scenes and an audio commentary with Retired (but presumably not Extremely Dangerous) CIA field officer Robert Baer (the model for George Clooney's character in Syriana, who also recently contributed to a featurette on the From Paris With Love DVD). The Blu-ray will include all that as well as an Access: RED feature boasting "a variety of scene-specific features including interviews with cast members, animated documentary shorts on controversial CIA operations, and more." I like the sound of that Access: RED featurette. I have no idea what a former CIA officer could possibly talk about for the entire duration of RED, since the movie probably bears as much resemblence to actual spying as The Lord of the Rings does to firefighting, but I admit I'll be curious to sample the track. RED stars Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Karl Urban, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, Mary Louise Parker, Richard Dreyfuss and Brian Cox. Read my full review here.
