007 Returns In Spectre On Feb. 29 As DVD And Blu-ray Edition Courtesy Of 20th Century-Fox Home Entertainment

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
20th Century-Fox Home Entertainment, in conjunction with MGM Home Entertainment, has tabbed Feb. 9 as the retail-ready street day for the latest 007 thriller, Spectre.   Stand alone DVD and Blu-ray editions are in the works for that date.

The ARR is a quick-to-market 95 days and ticket sales currently stand at a tasty $197.8 million — not as robust as Daniel Craig’s previous entry in the 007 series, Skyfall ($304.4 million), but ahead of both Quantum of Solace ($168.4 million) and his debut film, Casino Royale ($167.4 million).

This film sets up perfectly for a sequel, but whether Daniel Craig returns for a fifth outing as Bond, James Bond, is a bit up in the air right now.   Although the film was uneven, Christoph Waltz was a nice touch as long-time 007 nemesis, Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

As to bonus goodies, there are seven featurettes — called “video blogs” — included with both the DVD and Blu-ray SKUs.   Exclusive to the Blu-ray is the featurette titled “SPECTRE: Bond's Biggest Opening Sequence.”
