Warner Home Video has hidden some interesting footage on their release of the John Travolta science fiction flick, “Battlefield Earth.”
From the disc’s main menu go to the “Special Features.” Here press the “right” arrow key on your remote control to highlight the spaceship. If you press “Enter” now, you will get to see some B-roll footage with make-up tests.
On the second page of Special Features you can do the same thing and highlight the Pyramid. This will allow you to watch even more additional behind-the-scenes footage – this time a mob scene clip.
But that’s still not all, if you highlight the hidden elements in the “Cast & Crew” section you will get to see a stunt test clip, and in the “Languages” menu you can access yet another brief stunt test clip.
But that’s still not all! Another clip can be found in the scene selections on the disc. Go to the “Scenes Selections” for chapter 7 – 12 and scroll through all of the chapters until you highlight a hidden Psychlo image. Pressing “Enter” will bring up a scene of an extra shooting a Bazooka!
The biggest hidden feature is unsuspectingly found in the commentary track on the disc. If you watch the film with the audio commentary on, occasionally a Psychlo letter will appear on the screen. Selecting it will then take you to some interesting behind-the-scenes footage of that particular scene. All these clips from the commentary can also be accessed directly with your remote control. Simply go directly to titles 19 – 32 and you’ll get to see these clips. Please consult your player’s user manual how to directly access titles on a DVD, as this is handled differently on each DVD player.
