THE ISLAND Wal-Mart Exclusive Bonus DVD?

Any word on what is on it? Considering the DVD of the film proper is so lamentably bare-bones, I'm liable to buy this bonus DVD no matter what is on it, but it would be nice to know details in advance, just the same...

Bump for Filmmaker and my own interest. DVDFanboy lists it, but Walmart.com doesn't mention it at all, whereas they've carried previous bonus DVD's for sale.

didn't know about this. I may have to get it at Wal-Mart, because it is indeed bare bones.

Alright, I'll answer my own question--I bought it this morning and (slight bummer) it appears to be exactly like the bonus DVD for WAR OF THE WORLDS. It contains:

THE ISLAND "Behind the Scenes" HBO Special

"Before It All Starts" Previsualization: From storyboards to animatics, get an exclusive peek at what everyone on the set sees before any film ever rolls.

I don't have the running times on either featurette, since I had to go straight to work after buying it but, if it holds with the WotW bonus disc, it'll be approx. 15 minutes on the HBO featurette and approx. 8 minutes on the Pre-Visualization piece.

NOTE TO BUYERS IN THE TULSA, OK AREA! The Wal-Mart in Broken Arrow at 71st and Aspen (129th) is ringing up this 2-DVD set for the single DVD price, even though it's marked $3 higher on the display stand. With the $3 coupon that came out in People magazine a couple of weeks back, this 2-disc set can be had for only $13.87!!! Better move fast before they realize their error...

Nice! I didn't know Walmart had a bonus for this one. Thanks Filmmaker for the heads up.

I also got it at Walmart but haven't looked at the bonus disc yet. I usually don't bite but the walmart I went to while a little higher on the single price was giving away the one with the bonus disc for the same price.

My usually walmart stop charges about $5.00 extra.

Guess I found a new walmart to hit
