Night at the Museum

The most recent home video release of this movie is April 23, 2007. Here are some details…

DVD Release Date: 24 April 2007

Night at the Museum comes to DVD in either a Single Disc Version (wide or full screen) or a 2-Disc Special Edition (wide screen). Both options offer commentaries by director Shawn Levy and by screenwriters Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon. But if you’re willing to pay the extra admission on the two-disc edition, you’ll get the movie wrapped in a cool, Three-D package plus an archive of bonus extras. These include deleted and extended scenes (with optional commentary by director Shawn Levy), an alternate opening scene, a blooper reel, and theatrical trailers. There is a collection of featurettes too, such as Directing 101, Bringing the Museum to Life, Acting with Nothing, Monkey Business, Building the Museum, Historical Threads (a look at the costumes), The Making of Night at the Museum, and a storyboard comparison (introduced by Shawn Levy). And if that’s not enough, there are also two DVD-ROM games, Explorer and Reunite with Rexy. Whatever you chose, Night at the Museum‘s audio track will be presented in English (Dolby Surround 5.1 DTS), French (Dolby Surround) and Spanish (Dolby Surround), with subtitles in English and Spanish.
