20th Century-Fox Home Entertainment Tabs Mar. 8 For A Three SKU Helping On Director Steve Martino’s The Peanuts Movie

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
20th Century-Fox Home Entertainment will have the little ones clicking the repeat button on the remote, over and over again, beginning Mar. 8.   That’s the retail-ready date for a three SKU helping of director Steve Martino’s The Peanuts Movie.

The ARR is 123 days and the box office take was a solid $129.2 million.

Available for consumers to choose from are a stand-alone DVD edition and two Blu-ray/DVD Combo Packs — one with and one without a 3D viewing option (the premium is ten bucks).

Bonus goodies common to all three selections are a pair of music videos — Meghan Trainor’s “Better When I’m Dancin’ ” and “Get Down with Snoopy and Woodstock” — an interactive featurette titled “Learn to Draw Snoopy, Woodstock and Charlie Brown,” a behind-the-scenes featurette for “Better When I'm Dancin’,“ and a half-dozen “Snoopy Snippets.”   Plus, the music sequences can be accessed with the interactive “Snoopy Playlist.”

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph TribbeyExclusive to the Blu-ray SKUs is the documentary titled You Never Grow Up Charlie Brown and the featurette, “Snoopy's Sibling Salute.”

Also added to the release calendar this week — for delivery on Feb. 23 — are DVD and Blu-ray editions of director Paul McGuigan’s Victor Frankenstein

The ARR is a zippy 88 days and ticket sales were a disastrous $5.8 million.

Despite an interesting script from Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra, etc.) and a very offbeat performance from Daniel Radcliffe — as Igor!!! — the film failed to find an audience theatrically.   DVD and Blu-ray to the rescue!

Bonus goodies include the featurette “The Making of Victor Frankenstein” — exclusive to the Blu-ray SKU are deleted scenes.
