Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Premonition...
Aimed at adults, this thriller has dead birds, suspenseful music, eerie moments of d0xE9j0xE0 vu and unexplained details that all add up to a creepy week for Linda Hanson who has a premonition her husband is about to die. A fiery car crash, bloody facial injuries on a child, a suspected adulterous relationship and a poorly handled funeral service create more tension for the sullen, stay-at-home mom who is briefly shown in bed with her husband. Alcohol use and some off-screen cigarette use are also included in the script, along with infrequent vulgarities and one extreme, sexual expletive.

Details on home video releases of Premonition...
DVD Release Date: 17 July 2007
Sony Pictures must have had a Premonition about the film’s disappointing conclusion because they have included an alternate ending on the DVD release of this movie. Other places that may shed some light on the production’s creative choices are the audio commentary with director Mennan Yapo and actress Sandra Bullock, and the optional director’s commentary on some deleted scenes. As well, the disc provides Glimpses of the Future (a making-of featurette), Bringing Order to Chaos and Real Premonitions. Just for fun, the studio has also tossed in a gag reel. Audio tracks are available in Dolby Digital 5.1 (English and French), with subtitles in English, French and Spanish.
