Eclipse DVD Guide

(This article applies to the US release of the Eclipse DVD. Offerings in countries outside of the US may differ. Prices valid as of 11/21/10. Links to Target.com, Amazon.com, and Walmart.com are for convenience only; NNT has no affiliation with any of these stores.)

 

For both Twilight and New Moon, fans had to buy multiple copies of the DVD in order to receive all of the content due to “exclusives” sold only by certain stores.  Thankfully, there doesn’t seem to be as much of that for Eclipse.  According to my research, there are seven varieties of the Eclipse DVD including the Blu-Ray options, but only three variations on content.  There only only two “exclusive” versions: one from Target and one from Walmart.

The Eclipse DVD is available for pre-order now and releases on December 4.

  1. I think I’m going to get the Target.com exclusive DVD/Blu-Ray combo. It looks like it’ll match the Borders exclusive New Moon and Twilight DVDs plus I’m a sucker for photos. 🙂

    I just wish it wasn’t so expensive….

  2. I think I’m going to get the Amazon.com Special Edition 2-Disc DVD. I don’t have a Blu-Ray player & that looks like the best option of the non-blu-ray stuff!

    But you’ll have to tell me how all the exta fast forward scenes are 😉

  3. Definitely the Collector’s Edition Blu-Ray/DVD combo from Target. There’s nothing better than watching Edward in HD, and my Sony Blu-Ray player is one of the best investments I’ve ever made. 😀
