Tim Burton invokes Ed Wood

Fans of macabre director Tim Burton can rejoice, his only film unavailable on DVD – and one of his most acclaimed – will make its long delayed arrival this winter as Ed Wood comes to DVD.

Ed Wood is the real life high-spirited movieman who refuses to let unfinished scenes, terrible reviews or hostile studio executives derail his big-screen dreams. With an oddball collection of showbiz misfits, Ed takes the art of bad moviemaking to an all-time low.

Coming as a two disc set, the film will be presented in anamorphic widescreen with a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack and a separate audio channel with Audio commentary with director Tim Burton, actor Martin Landau, writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karazewski, costume designer Colleen Atwood and cinematographer Stefan Czapsky. Extras include deleted scenes, the documentary “Let’s Shoot This F#*%@r!”, several shorter featurettes “The Theremin,”“Making Bela,” “Pie Plates Over Hollywood” and “When Carol Met Larry” (who Carol and Larry are is not quite certain). Wrapping up loose ends is a music video and a theatrical trailer.

The two-disc set will arrive on February 3rd, 2004 with a suggested retail price of $29.95. Can your heart stand the shocking facts of the true story of Edward D. Wood Jr.?
