Fox Home Entertainment

Title: Live Free or Die Hard
Released: November 20, 2007

Fox Home Entertainment has officially announced Live Free or Die Hard which stars Bruce Willis and Justin Long. There will be three different versions of the standard definition DVD release as well as a high-def Blu-ray version.

For the standard DVD, there will be a single-disc full screen rated version, a single-disc widescreen unrated version, and a unrated two-disc special edition. Each will carry English Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1 Surround tracks. Both single-disc editions will include a commentary track with Bruce Willis, Director Len Wiseman and Editor Nicolas De Toth, as well as the music video “Die Hard” by Guyz Nite and accompanying behind-the-scenes feature with the band.

The two-disc special edition will include everything the single disc releases have as well as a ten-part documentary entitled “Analog Hero in a Digital World: Making of Live Free or Die Hard. Also included will be a Fox Movie Channel featurette about the film, a Yippee-Ki-Yay Mother F*****! one-on-one conversation with Bruce Willis & Kevin Smith, and the trailer.

A Blu-ray release of the film will also be available on the day of standard release. But this release will only include the PG-13 rated theatrical version of the film, along with all of the above standard definition special features plus D-Box motion sensor capabilities, several high-definition trailers and the exclusive high definition BD-Java multi-level strategy game “Black Hat Intercept!”.

Finally, 20th Century Fox will also debut the Die Hard Trilogy on Blu-ray, loaded with numerous bonus features, including deleted scenes, featurettes, actor and director commentaries, visual effect breakdowns, alternate endings, side-by-side comparisons and much more.

No word on whether or not these features will be the same as those found on the Ultimate Die Hard Collection, six-disc release.
