Sneak Peek of the New Moon DVD Commentary!
This just in from ComCast:
"For you and for all the Twilight fans who frequent your Web site, I wanted to be sure you knew that Comcast will have The Twilight Saga: New Moon On Demand beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, March 20 – the same day as the DVD release but HOURS before most retailers are even open. AND, only Comcast customers will be able to view never-before-seen commentary from director Chris Weitz on a number of favorite ‘New Moon’ scenes such as: Bella’s birthday party, Bella’s cliff dive, when Bella rescues Edward in Italy and when Bella first meets the Volturi."
They also sent us a clip of the Director/Editor commentary found on most versions of the New Moon DVD! Check it out:
