‘Minority Report’ DVD two years in making

Spielberg, Cruise, other helmers interviewed for disc

HOLLYWOOD — Although “Minority Report” was just released to theaters a few months ago, the DVD version of Steven Spielberg’s summer action hit starring Tom Cruise has been in the works for nearly two years.

In what is becoming more common on major theatrical productions, Spielberg’s Video Premiere Award-winning DVD producer Laurent Bouzereau (Universal’s “The Birds”) was given full access to the set of “Minority Report” from the first day of filming. Bouzereau chronicled the production shooting hundreds of hours of high-def video that results in more than an hour of featurettes on specific areas of filmmaking that include original interviews with Spielberg, Cruise and a handful of other Academy Award-winning filmmakers.

DreamWorks will release “Minority Report” on DVD and VHS on Dec. 17, backed by a multimillion-dollar marketing campaign. Part of that campaign involves a cross-promotion with Activision, which is releasing a videogame version of the movie that will include a trailer for the DVD. Likewise, a trailer for the videogame will be featured on the DVD.
