Super Clerks on November 28

Ladies and gents, November 28 is shaping up to be a phenomenal day on DVD. And it's right at the start of holiday shopping season, so take note! These make good Christmas presents...for me.

First up, November 28 is when Superman Returns comes out on DVD. Now, I did enjoy Superman's return to the big screen. As is the case these days, it'll be available in a single-disc, no bonus features edition, and a 2-disc special edition. Here's what you get for bonus materials on the 2-disc special edition

  • The 172 minute documentary Requiem for Krypton: Making Superman Returns (dude! That's a whole hour longer than the film!)
  • A featurette called Resurrecting Jor-El
  • 11 deleted scenes, with all the special effects completed
  • Kevin Spacey's bloopers
  • The trailers and TV spots
But, also coming out on that day, for the ultimate Superman fan, is the gigantic, 14-disc boxed set The Ultimate Superman Collection. This set contains every Superman movie ever made. How did they get it up to 14 discs? Well, here's what all is included:

  • Superman: The Movie - Special Edition (4 discs)
  • Superman II: Special Edition (2 discs)
  • Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut (1 disc)
  • Superman III: Special Edition (1 disc)
  • Superman IV: The Quest for Peace - Special Edition (1 disc)
  • Superman Returns: Special Edition (2 discs)
  • You Will Believe: The Cinematic Story of Superman (new documentary all about the films. 1 disc)
  • Look! Up in the Sky! The Amazing Story of Superman (1 disc)
  • Bryan Singer's Journals Extended Editions (Singer's video blog that he made during the making of the film - including 2 episodes never posted online! 1 disc.)
But wait! There's more! Included in the box is a special reprint of Superman #7, a new booklet about the history of Superman, and a mail-away offer for all the film's movie posters!

Also out on November 28 is my favourite film of the summer, Kevin Smith's Clerks II. It'll be a 2-disc special edition, and here's what all you get for bonus features.
  • Running commentary with the cast and crew
  • Back to the Well: Making Clerks II (feature length documentary about making the film)
  • The top 10 episodes of Train Wreck. (Train Wreck was Smith's video blog about making the film...on his message boards, Smith said that you're only getting the top 10, and not all 75.)
  • Deleted scenes and bloopers (Smith says it's purely coincidental that there's 37 minutes worth)
  • Featurettes on the dance sequence and the now-infamous donkey sequence.
And, no Kevin Smith fan would be complete without picking up An Evening with Kevin Smith 2: Evening Harder. This follow-up to An Evening with Kevin Smith documents even more of Kevin Smith's live shows! That's also out on November 28.

As I said, all would make great Christmas presents...for me.
