Resevoir Dogs 10th Anniversary Edition revealed
Artisan Home Entertainment have revealed their plans for the 10th Anniversary R1 DVD Release of Quentin Tarantino's Resevoir Dogs. Due out on August 27th and carrying a retail price of $26.98 you can expect to find the following extra features in this 2-disc set...
Original production features: Real Life Reservoir Dogs featurette, action figure development documentary, Getaway Cars featurette, film noir retrospective, tributes to indie filmmakers, tributes to writers and directors inspired by Reservoir Dogs, tribute to actor Lawrence Tierney, interviews with director Quentin Tarantino and cast and crew members, select scene commentaries, mini commentaries with filmmakers, cast and critics.
Other features: deleted scenes, outtakes, two alternate camera angles of the "ear cutting" scene, production notes, poster gallery, cast and crew info.
Sounds good so far but another interesting element of this release is the packaging dilemma that will face you on purchase.
As you can see from the artwork above there will be multiple versions available to purchase, or more precisely five different covers will go on sale (four are pictured above), each featuring a character from the film pictured with their designated colour. Your choices are Mr. Blonde, Mr. White, Mr. Orange, Mr. Pink and Mr. Brown, the latter of which (with Tarantino on the front) will be available in limited quantities. The 'cover flap' on these releases will apparently flip up to reveal character bio's, photos and quotes. A further edition to the packaging is an 8-page booklet about the film.
