Spiderman, Blade 2, and Ice Age DVD Details!

The following information has come from a variety of sources, none of which are exactly official (Update: Blade 2 appears to be a legitimate source) but we have little reason to doubt the following is a close representation of what to expect from the DVD releases of these three recent blockbusters...

Spiderman DVD Release details, taken from this Home Theater Forum thread. The details are apparently direct from Columbia Tristar and are for the Region 4 release, although we expect similar specs worldwide.

Disc One

  • The Feature SPIDER-MAN.
  • 1st Time Ever on DVD!!! Set top Prologue Comic Book: 4 video pages of pre-movie story (pages will prompt viewer to watch the film and reveal an untold Spidey tale). Check out the Marvel website for an example. Basically, it's an interactive comic book - you click on the frame and it pops up with animation and dialogue - very, very cool!
  • Audio/Video Commentary. Sam Raimi, Willem Dafoe, Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst (with branching visual selects from film), Spider Sense "White Rabbit" - Spider-Man head comes on screen and 'tingles' - when clicked it allows the viewer to watch video of the audio commentary being created.
