17 Again DVD/Blu-ray Details  
This is from a UK source, but it does say US DVD so I think it should be accurate.

Warner Home Video have announced the US DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of 17 Again on 11th August 2009. Zac Efron stars in this comedy about a thirty-something who is given another shot at life after he is miraculously transformed back to the age of 17.

Priced at $28.98 SRP on DVD and $35.99 SRP on Blu-ray Disc, extras are outlined below...

DVD - Includes both widescreen and full screen transfers, English DD5.1 Surround audio and English and Spanish subtitles. There are no extras.

Blu-ray Disc - This is a Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy combo package with the following extras:

* Zac Goes Back
* Going Back To 17
* “Way Cool” Tell All Trivia Track (203 pop-up’s)
* Breakin’ Character Outtakes
* Zac’s Dance Flashback
* Additional Scenes
* BD LIVE – Media Center
* ZAC ATTACKS
* Tom Lennon & Melora Hardin – Unfiltered



No commentary? Damn. And ouch at no extras on the dvd.

Omg I feel awkward about the "PACKED WITH ZAC" text. Anytime I am reminded of it being a vehicle for him I feel so weird, like GAH the narrative came second for most people/the producers&studio. EFFING COMMODIFICATION.

The no commentary has to be a joke. I don't think I can remember a current DVD/Blu-Ray without one (HSM3 doesn't count - it's for kids which aren't interested in that).

If that holds true, this is a major diappointment for me. And I'm not even talking about one with Zac (of course I would love that but cast commentaries aren't always standard) but just one with the produders/director.

Really? I don't think many of the blu-rays I've rented have commentaries. Like right now I have Eagle Eye, He's Just Not That Into You, and Quantum of Solace and none list a commentary on the description on the back. idk.

Anyway, it is still disappointing either way.

can you rip stuff from blue-ray? I have no idea I never even watched blue-ray... if you can, can you make it accessable for us?

WTF. There must be a commentary. Its mandatory!

I'm glad you said it.

It's worse in Australia. You can't even get the Hairspray DVD with extras here, it only comes on the Blu Ray version. SO IRRITATING!

I get that they want people to swicth to blu-ray... but why still pander to those people who still watch full-screen??

i'm really mad.. this news better change.
Troll St. Trollglamour_addict on June 9th, 2009 09:18 pm (UTC)
commentaries are becoming more and more rare... makes me think the going-rate for actor's time has increased exponentially and studios don't want to put anymore money in their home video releases if they can avoid it.
Beejeezbee on June 9th, 2009 09:28 pm (UTC)
I would have thought that this is covered by the initial deal when they sign up nowadays. I can understand when old DVDs don't have commentary but new ones? I didn't realize that there are less and less... the commentary is the one feature I was looking forward the most. I would happily trade that for all the other extras.

do we have evidence of WB doing this to other upcoming dvd/bluray releases?
Beejeezbee on June 9th, 2009 09:33 pm (UTC)
With all my bitching about the missing audio commentary I just noticed that there are no bloopers either. :(

(I know that this is not a standard extra but if we aren't getting any commentary they could have put at least those on it).

There is hope!!!

According to this trade ad for the release, there is a Zac commentary. Let's keep our fingers crossed! Yeah!

Photobucket

ETA: the commentary might be a BD-Live special on second glance. So, not on the Blu-Ray but you can connect (although I have never used this feature - let's hope it's also included in the German release).

ETA2: on third glance the commentary might be a "regular" feature on the Blu-Ray after all. I guess we have to wait to find out...

ETA3: "Zac Goes Back" might actually be the audio commentary - esp considering that they are using rather non-descriptive names for the extras

I really hope they release a regular DVD copy with extra. I don't have a Blu-Ray player and don't plan on getting one anytime soon.
Elena: zac-entertainmentdpirates03 on June 10th, 2009 05:43 am (UTC)
I totally agree, the regular DVD needs special features too!
