Like a massive zipper running from the Sea of Cortez to San Francisco (and out into the Pacific Ocean) and poised — at any moment — to unzip San Diego, Los Angeles and all points west and south of Hollister from the rest of the North American Continent is the dreaded San Andreas Fault.
It shook San Francisco to rubble in 1906 and is talked about all the time as being the source of “The BIG One” … the one that will divide California in half; island and mainland.
The San Andreas Fault got top billing in director Brad Peyton’s earthquake thriller, San Andreas, this year and scored seismic numbers at the box office in the process … $150 million and counting. Moviegoers just loved the visceral thrill of seeing Los Angeles and San Francisco ripped to shreds (they loved it in 1974 too)!
And just as certain, they will love San Andreas once again on Oct. 20 when Warner Bros. Home Entertainment shakes up the home entertainment marketplace with a three SKU helping of this action flick starring Dwayne Johnson — there will be a stand-alone DVD double-disc edition and two Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack editions (one with and one without a 3D viewing option) ready at retail for fans to shake their booty to.
Bonus goodies include commentary from director Brad Peyton (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore), a gag reel, a stunt reel, deleted scenes (with optional commentary by Peyton) and a trio of production featurettes — “San Andreas: The Real Fault Line,” “Dwayne Johnson to the Rescue” and “Scoring the Quake.”
Also getting a mark on the release calendar this week from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is the comic book to TV series DVD release of iZombie: The Complete First Season, starring Rose McIver (The Lovely Bones), as Liv Moore, a fresh zombie with the unique ability to consume brains (yuck) of recent murder victims, and, in doing so, is able to help solve their murders.
The street date for iZombie: The Complete First Season is Sept. 29.
Included on this three-disc collection are all 13 episodes from the premiere season (pilot plus 12), deleted scenes and video session from 2014 iZombie Comic-Con panel.
