Details, Deals on Tuesday's Cloverfield DVD

The DVD and Blu-Ray release of Cloverfield is Tuesday. Ironically I am going to pass on purchasing the movie (considering how I blogged about it) but figure many others are getting it. The DVD has the usual commentary, deleted seens and making of featurettes. To my knowledge, there is no additional special content exclusive to the Blu-Ray edition of the film. Considering the handi-cam filming style of the movie I can't help but think that buying the movie on Blu-Ray is a waste of money since I doubt the picture quality will be any different.

Special Features:
• Commentary: Commentary by Director Matt Reeves
• Featurette: The Making of Cloverfield
• Featurette: Cloverfield Visual Effects
• Featurette: I Saw It! It's Alive! It's Huge
• Featurette: Clover Fun
• Additional Scenes: Congrats Rob
• Additional Scenes: When You're in Japan
• Additional Scenes: I Call That a Date

• Easter Eggs: Rack 'Em & Pack 'Em
• Easter Eggs: Fighting the X

Two Cloverfield Alternate Endings

Below are two alternate endings for Cloverfield. At least until they get pulled. I assume the same footage is on the DVD set coming out April 22nd. The endings are not that much different from the movie, really they are alternate takes rather then endings.
