Col TriStar readies DVD release of ‘Men in Black’

Double-disc set features editing tool allowing viewer to make scenes

“Men in Black” is coming back with a vengeance Sept. 5 on DVD, with enough new and groundbreaking material to fill an alien spacecraft.

A special double-disc Limited Edition priced at $39.95 will feature a first-of-its-kind editing workshop that allows the viewer to edit several cuts in a scene in the order of their choosing, with director Barry Sonnenfeld explaining why he chose to edit the film the way he did.

Columbia TriStar Home Video is backing the first DVD edition of the studio’s top-grossing movie with a multimillion-dollar marketing campaign involving cross-promotional partners including Universal Studios Orlando — home of a new “Men in Black” theme park ride — Pepsi-Cola, IGN.com, Eruptor.com, and Crave Entertainment.

Landmark release

The release is expected to be Columbia’s first DVD title to sell more than 1 million units.

The Limited Edition also will include segments that can be viewed from a variety of angles about character animation and scenes involving the tunnel and the Edgar bug fight.

Sonnenfeld and star Tommy Lee Jones also provide visual commentary with onscreen diagrams, and Sonnenfeld, Rick Baker and the ILM special effects team provide technical audio commentary.

Also on the disc is an original featurette, a new documentary, extended and alternate scenes, as well as the usual array of extras like trailers, music videos and storyboards.
