Q4 Blu-ray Landing for The Pacific but Later for Heroes S4?
Warner Bros NZ will only say it’s due in the fourth quarter but HBO in the US has just announced a November 2 release and one Australian website is taking pre-orders for the day after.
The Blu-ray will include the DVD edition’s five-minute historical background prologues for each episode and three documentary shorts (Making The Pacific, Profiles of The Pacific and Anatomy of the Pacific War) as well as such HD exclusives as: an enhanced, picture-in-picture viewing mode with interviews, archival footage and maps; and The Pacific Field Guide, which complements on-screen events with background information, animated maps, interviews with historians and veterans, historical footage and photographs.
Meanwhile, if you want to see the fourth and final season of Heroes before it airs on C4, pre-order the region-free Blu-ray that goes on sale in the US on August 3.
Season three was released here only last week and don’t expect Universal Pictures Video NZ to release S4 until after its C4 run, which has yet to start.
They’ll include picture-in-picture commentaries, audio commentaries, deleted and extended scenes, and shorts (Deconstructing Sylar: discussion with Tim Kring, Adam Armus and Zachary Quinto; Milo Speaks: Milo Vetimiglia talks about his career as an actor and his role on Heroes; Heroes Revolution: Tim Kring and Heroes new media creatives discuss the importance of a web series for a hit television show and how new media entertainment is created; Genetics of Scene: an in-depth look at the production process of creating specific scenes).
