You can own Devil now on BLU-RAY, DVD, DIGITAL DOWNLOAD and ON DEMAND as well. An idea comes from the mind of master of suspense, M.Night Shyamalan and directed by John Erick Dowdle. The film is written for screen by Brian Nelson. Devil is the first chapter under THE NIGHT CHRONICLES, a production entity with Media Rights Capital, focused on generating a series of supernatural thrillers.
In case you don’t know anything about the film, it’s a story about five strangers trapped in a elevator high above Philadelphia. They discover slowly that the devil is among them and no one can escape their fate. This chilling supernatural thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat all the way to a heart-stopping ending with a truly wicked twist.
Looks like our hopes of seeing the Kyoshi Warriors put into the movie have just been dashed. As well as hope for a “director’s cut.” However, we weren’t asking for a director’s cut, were we? We were asking for the Peter Jackson route of “Extended Edition.” Both the theatrical and the extended editions of The Lord of the Rings are considered to be the “director’s cut.” Therefore, if Night wants to, he could just create another longer cut (perhaps even using alternate takes here and there), that could stand apart from the original version.
MTV asked Night if we would see the deleted scenes later on, though, and here’s what he said: Read the rest of this entry »

The Happening was released today on DVD and Blu-ray Disc.
Bloody-Disgusting.com recently sat down with M. Night Shyamalan to talk about The Happening coming to DVD & Blu-ray Disc next week and somehow got him to tease the notion of him directing an original idea after The Last Airbender.
“In my head I have three ideas that are fighting to be the next spec,” Shyamalan explains. “One is more straight up scary, one is more light hearted scary – kind of more in the Signs vein, which I had a great time doing the lighter end on that one – the other one isn’t… well, it’s not Gothic… but I am always in that world when I am working on original ideas. I will be shooting that one in 2010, so I have some time to decide.”

Blu-ray.com has learned early details of the Blu-ray Disc for “The Happening” which will feature a quasi-commentary track by Shyamalan. Is this the first in a new trend for Shyamalan? Let’s hope to see more for “The Last Airbender.”
Neil Lumbard wrote to inform us that the Sixth Sense has a targeted September release date for Blu-ray Disc.
Given the early nature of the announcement, there are no tech specs or extras detailed as of yet. However, given an earlier Vista Series DVD release of the film, hopes are high that some (if not all) of the same features found on that two-disc version will make their way to Blu-ray. We’ll keep you posted.
