It's been less than two months since Fast & Furious revved into theaters and sped off with $300+ million at the worldwide box office - just enough time for Universal to prep the DVD/Blu-ray versions of Fast & Furious in order for you to enjoy the ride all over again from the comfort of your home this Summer.
Screen Rant has the skinny on what all you can expect from both the DVD and Blu-ray versions of Fast & Furious. Check it out:
Fast & Furious will be come in three versions: a single-disc DVD ($26.96 SRP), a two-disc special edition DVD ($34.98 SRP) and a two-disc special edition Blu-ray ($39.96). Here's a list of the features you can expect from the two-disc DVD/Blu-ray special editions (the single-disc DVD is pretty much just the movie):
(Two-disc Special edition DVD and Blu-ray only)- "Under The Hood: Muscle Cars & Imports" featurette- "High Octane Action: The Stunts" featurette- "Shooting the Big Rig Heist" featurette- "Driving School With Vin Diesel" featurette- Original short film "Los Bandoleros"- Digital copy
U-Control: (Blu-ray only)- Paul Walker and director Justin Lin take control of your player to reveal exciting behind-the-scenes details- Virtual Car Garage: look closely at the hot cars, then create your own custom vehicle and share it with your friends
BD-Live: (Blu-ray only)- Create your own Fast & Furious Video Mashup featuring action and music from the film, then share it via BD-Live- BD-Live Center
I always like the DVDs and Blu-rays that come with a digital copy of the film. It's nice when studios make it easy for you to tote around your favorite flicks on your favorite portable digital media players. The rest of the features seem pretty standard for this kind of release - the exception being the Blu-ray feature where you design your own custom cars. That sounds pretty sweet.
For those with short memories: Fast & Furious reunites the original cast of 2001's The Fast and the Furious (Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez), as they try to bring down a Mexican drug lord who is using street racers to smuggle drugs across the borer. If you read Screen Rant's review of Fast & Furious, then you already know that this fourth film in the franchise manages to deliver the fun and frills that were missing from other F&F sequels. The Fast & Furious gang are back on top of their game.
Fast & Furious hits both DVD and Blu-ray on July 28, 2009.
