Written by David Stellmack

Coming 5/27/08, HD DVD support ends 5/31


Warner Studios has announced that the HD DVD version of “Twister: Special Edition” has been moved to May 27, 2008. With this announcement it is likely that it could be the last HD DVD released by Warner when their official support for HD DVD ends on May 31st. The DVD and Blu-ray versions will ship ahead of the HD DVD version on May 6th.

The Twister: Special Edition version will feature audio commentary by director Jan DeBont and visual effects supervisor Stefan Fangmeier. Featurettes “Chasing the Storm: Twister Revisited” and “Anatomy of a Twister” will be included. The HBO first look at the making of Twister as well as the 2003 History Channel special, “Nature Tech: Tornadoes,” will also be included. Of course, the Twister theme song from Van Halen called “Humans Being” will be included in video form. The theatrical trailers will also be included.

Twister is an excellent choice for a Hi-Definition movie due to its special effects. While we are not going to say that it is a classic, it is a solid film worth watching more than once as it has some very nice special effects. For HD DVD fans, it isn’t a bad way to end Warner’s support of HD DVD. Still, if you have already purchased both of the DVD versions of the film, we are not sure that you are getting much more here beyond the new Twister Revisited featurette. Many DTS fans would like to know if the Twister: Special Edition is going to feature the DTS sound track that was included on the re-released Twister DVD.
