Via SuperheroHype, Zach Snyder’s masterful rendering of Frank Miller’s “300″ limited series comic book is coming to a DVD shelf near you. The DVDs will come in regular DVD, Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD on July 31st; there will be those standbys, the single-disc DVD, as well as the cooler 2-disc Special Edition DVDs. And come on, how can you watch “300″ and not wish there was an extra DVD disc full of junk that is probably not all that important, but you still want it anyway because, well, the movie rocks? Exactly.
The single disc version include commentary by Snyder, screenwriter Kurt Johnstad and director of photography Larry Fong. The two-disc version will include the same commentary plus additional scenes of the traitorous hunchback and never-before-seen giant warriors, “Frank Miller’s Vision Realized on Film,” “300 Spartans – Face or Fiction?: The Shocking Life of a Spartan Revealed,” “Who Were the Spartans?: How the Actors Built Their Characters Based on Spartan Customs,” Webisodes and a photo gallery.
