There Will Be Blood April 8th?

Taken from cigarettesandredvines.com the "definitive p.t. anderson resource".

The DVD will be released on April 8th, 2008 on a 2-disc collector’s edition. The cover is very classy; personally, I was hoping they’d use the original one-sheet “bible” poster, but this isn’t too bad either — it’s an image of Daniel Plainview looking down into the oil well, taken from a frame near the beginning of the movie. DDL is credited at the top; in the center lies the title “There Will Be Blood” and directly underneath “written for the screen and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson” and at the very bottom “2-Disc Collector’s Edition”.
An older post goes into some detail about possible special features

> there is no commentary track, nor will there ever probably be one again. paul mentioned to me how alot of the buzz has been taken from doing them because people quote them back verbatim to him in interviews and fun/flippant comments are regarded as gospel. (not a quote, but the gist of what was said)

> the behind-the-scenes footage we reported ages ago that was being shot by austin lynch will, as of this point, not be included on the dvd as a ‘that moment’ style feature. paul said it all turned out wonderfully but that the footage might take away the magic of the film itself saying “it’s just a bunch of people in a desert standing around making a movie.”

> there is an extremely old documentary/footage that was found about mining and oil production from the era. they are planning to cut in jonny greenwood’s score over top of it and make a presentation out of it.

i can’t remember anything else specifically sticking out, but i’m sure there will be tastes of the usual things (trailers, a cut scene or two etc.) more updates as i get them.

That really sucks about P.T. Anderson not recording anymore commentary tracks. The one he did for Boogie Nights is one of the best I've ever heard.

Damnit! I knew that because I loved this film it wouldn't have commentary on it.

Anderson said that after the Boogie Nights commentary, people kept asking him about things he said off the cuff during the track and it got to become too much of a liability, so he's never planning to do another commentary track ever again

Well that certainly sucks then. I have been hoping for a re-release of Magnolia with commentary.
Couldn't someone do commentary on this? Jonny Greenwood? Paul Dano? The kid who played "his son"? A commentary that consisted of nothing but audio clips from the "milkshake" speech for 2 hrs. and 38 minutes?

Definately will be buying this the Tuesday it arrives. It's disappointing there's not going to be a commentary track but I'll buy the disc regardless.

This will be a release day purchase for me, which is rare nowdays. If it ever comes to high def (either format) I will purchase that as well.

Didn't get a chance to see this, so this one will be a must buy. Anderson has not made a film yet that I haven't liked.

I was kind of hoping for a leather bound bible-y case for this one.

I just saw this last night and I'm all over this DVD. Great film. A bible-ish leathery LE would be sweet, but I'm just as happy with a 2-disc set. I might spring for the HD if there is one available.

What a fantastic film. This is another release-day buy for me. (And I have every intention to see it at least once more in theaters.)

Sold.

And sold again when it goes Blu...This will be my first HD purchase and the title that I've been waiting for to make the jump. (I know it won't come out as a Blu title, just sayin'... Eventually, when it does)

that's too bad....but he's been moving the way of spielberg with little or no deleted scenes (and no commentary) since Boogie Nights..

I think the reason is kind of silly myself....and this is coming from someone who knew PTA pretty well
