Twilight Blu-ray Mystery Solved

on

There’s been a lot of confusion about the Twilight Blu-ray release. Or is that releases? I’m here to set the record straight.

As previous reported here at TheHDRoom, Twilight will be released in a special edition Blu-ray Disc package on March 21, day-and-date with the DVD debut. The catch? It will be exclusive to Best Buy and Target (online and retail locations).

Other retailers such as Walmart, Blockbuster and Amazon.com will have to wait until May 5 until they can release Twilight. Rental copies through Blockbuster, Netflix and other companies will be available on March 21.

Here are the contents of the Twilight Special Edition Blu-ray Disc release which, by listing a New Moon teaser trailer, infer Summit will embrace BD-Live in the next month or so. The film will be presented in 2.4:1 1080p video and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.

  • Audio commentary by Catherine Hardwicke, Kristen Stewart, and Robert Pattinson
  • Muse music video: “Super Massive Black Hole”
