Revolutionary Road (6/2/09)

This news was posted at thedigitalbits.com (so take this "news" with a small grain of salt.)

Still, here is what is listed:
Paramount has set Revolutionary Road for release on DVD... on 6/2 (SRP $19.99 ...). DVD extras will include audio commentary by director Sam Mendes and screenwriter Justin Haythe, deleted scenes with optional commentary and the Lives of Quiet Desperation: The Making of Revolutionary Road featurette.


I guess the Blu ray will have an exclusive featurette so that means I may end up waiting out of protest until this DVD hits the $5 bin at Wal-mart...

This will probably be the last big Oscar type movie released on dvd.

I hope that blu-ray exclusive feature is worthless

Can't wait. One of my favorite movies of last year with possible career bests from Leo, Kate and Michael Shannon.

I loved it, one of my favorites from last year, but I don't think it would be something I'd watch again.

I thought it was pretty good, had no idea why it never caught on at the box office. Did it even get a wide release?

Not much of one, no, barely over a thousand screens. It never caught fire with the nominations (aside from Kate, because, well, she's Kate), a standout performance by Michael Shannon was overshadowed by Heath Ledger's near-sweep of supporting awards, and the film was too unrelentingly bleak for closed-minded viewers. It didn't fare too badly at the box office, all told; $48 million isn't too bad for a film like this.

• Commentary by director Sam Mendes and screenwriter Justin Haythe
• Lives of Quiet Desperation: The Making of Revolutionary Road (29:03 in)
• Eight Deleted Scenes with optional commentary from Sam Mendes and Justin Haythe (25:14)

the blu-ray also has this featurette: Richard Yates: The Wages of Truth (26:04). Its a shame thats not on the DVD. sounds like an interesting extra. Oh, well I guess I will have to make due without it.

This was my favorite movie of last year until I saw Let The Right One In.

This is one of the few films that have taken six months to be released on home video.

The recent trend in the last several years has been a DVD release date around four months from the theatrical release.

Quick question for people who bought the Blu-Ray: How many deleted scenes did it come with?
