Universal Studios Home Entertainment brings us this IMAX snoozer on Blu-ray 3D, with the availability of regular 2D presentation should you not have the technology at hand just yet (what do you mean you can’t afford it?). The 1080p transfer is quite lovely (easy to imagine seeing as how most of the movie is CGI) and the film is presented in a 1.78:1 ratio with DTS-HD HR English 5.1. There are alternate audio tracks and/or optional subtitles available in about fifteen different languages: French, Spanish, Japanese, German, Finnish, Swedish, Danish, Dutch, Norwegian, Portuguese, Arabic, Czech, Polish, Icelandic and Slovenian. Yeah, I’m guessing it’s a Region Free release.
The disc also includes a behind-the-scenes featurette, an interview with select cast and crew, and a trailer for the film. Be warned, though: in the interview, one crewmember switches from speaking English to French — and you’ll have to switch on the subtitles manually once that happens as it doesn’t happen automatically.
That is, if you care. Like I said, this seems like it’s mostly for kiddies and 3D nuts.
