Make Way, Make Room!
The Brothers Bloom is available right now for rental only in the US. It’s on both Blu-ray and DVD, and it has a ton of great features, including a brand new commentary track, a Behind the Scenes I cut together myself, about half an hour of deleted scenes, storyboard comparisons, artwork galleries, and a special easter egg for those who enjoy a good egg hunt.
So - the big question I’ve been getting is why you cannot buy this disc yet. I don’t have a terrific answer, except that this is the way it’s being released, and it’s a release model that (like it or not) we’re going to see more of in the future. Basically, giving rental outlets an exclusive window gets more support from them, which means more discs on shelves, more promotion, etc.
The semi-good news is that the disc will be available for purchase on January 9th. A few Halloween parties, a little turkey, some holiday shopping, and WHAM-O, it’ll be here before you know it. Till then, you can find Bloom at Blockbuster, on Netflix, on iTunes, and just about any other rental outlet. Thanks, and let me know what you think!
