05/08/09Outlander DVD Review... and a Deleted scene.

Wow... Appologies for the lack of updates the last two weeks. I guess I needed a breather. In general news, Outlander continues into it's third week in the UK, and the film also Opens in Sweden today!

As you all know, Outlander Comes out on DVD in the US on May 19th. IGN got ahold of an advance copy and you can read their very positive review of the disk and it's features HERE.

"This film is absolutely straightforward about what you're getting into when you pop it into your DVD player – Vikings versus aliens. If that description intrigues you, then you'll probably enjoy this film for what it is. Add to that a great A/V presentation, and this disc delivers on its promise. "

Among the DVDs many features are deleted scenes, animatics, and a Director / Produce commentary. There are 27 deleted scenes ranging in legnth. some being just brief snipets, to extended scenes, and completely new scenes. It seems that all 27 are on the US DVD though in france, all 27 were only on the Blu-Ray with only five being found on the DVD edition. The IGN review seems to suggest they are all on the US DVD. Check out one such scene below!

This scene contains unfinished visual and audio effects but it's a neat scene that was cut to get the film to the contractual running time. Gunnar's wife and son have an interchange before the boy is sent out to check on the Horses...
