Under the Dome - Different Lists of Extras for The 1st Season on DVD and Blu-ray Disc **UPDATED**


Available to own on November 5th

Two months ago CBS/Paramount formally announced the release date for DVD and Blu-ray Disc releases of the 1st Season for Under the Dome will be November 5th. At the time we passed along this word regarding extras:
    "We're...still waiting on finding out what the finalized list of bonus material coming with these 4-disc sets will be. However, the studio has informed retailers to expect at least this much in the way of extras: a number of Behind-the-Scenes Featurettes, including interviews with the cast and crew, plus a Featurette titled "Stephen King and Under the Dome" (described as "a fascinating, rare, and exclusive discussion with author Stephen King about the book and adapting for TV")."
More recently, however, Amazon.com's pre-order listings (see button link below) have been updated. The Blu-ray entry (the version with standard packaging) still doesn't mention bonus material, but on the DVD version's entry there is a section called "Special Features" which has these items listed:
    30 Minutes of Exclusive Special Features:

    Stephen King Visits Big Jim's Car Dealership
    A tour of the location with Stephen King as he explains how Chester's Mill is based on a real town and makes a deal to buy a used car.

    The Visual Effects of "Under The Dome"
    A visit with the Visual Effects team as they discuss the incredible sequences they worked on for the series.

    "Under The Dome": Executing the Finale
    Exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from on set for the filming of the last episode.

    The Wilmington Pilot Premiere
    On the Red Carpet in Wilmington, NC for the Pilot Premiere of Under The Dome. Includes interviews with cast members and creators, the city's Mayor declaring June 24th Dome Day, and reactions to the gigantic success of the network premiere.
We went to double-check this with the studio, especially to confirm if the Blu-ray extras would be the same, and we found that Paramount Home Entertainment's password-protected press site has these lists now showing for the Bonus Features of each version (copied and pasted exactly as displayed there):

  • DVD:
    • Additional Scenes: Deleted Scenes
    • Additional Scenes: Deleted Scene
    • Featurette: Under The Dome: Filming the Pilot
    • Featurette: CBS Launch Promos
    • Featurette: Stephen King and "Under The Dome"
    • Featurette: "Under The Dome": From Novel to Series"
    • Featurette: The World of "Under The Dome"
    • Featurette: "Under The Dome": The First Season
    • Other: Joe's Blog
    • Bloopers: Gag Reel

  • Blu-ray Disc:
    • Featurette: Stephen King Visits Big Jim's Car Dealership
    • Featurette: Under The Dome: Filming the Pilot
    • Additional Scenes: Deleted Scene
    • Featurette: The Visual Effects of "Under The Dome"
    • Featurette: CBS Launch Promos
    • Featurette: Stephen King and "Under The Dome"
    • Featurette: "Under The Dome": From Novel to Series"
    • Featurette: "Under The Dome": Executing the Finale
    • Featurette: The Wilmington Pilot Premiere
    • Featurette: The World of "Under The Dome"
    • Featurette: "Under The Dome": The First Season
    • Other: Joe's Blog
    • Bloopers: Gag Reel
    As you can see, the lists have differences from each other (and differs from what Amazon is currently showing: Paramount's list of extras for the DVD version does not mention the "Stephen King Visits Big Jim's Car Dealership" featurette which Amazon's DVD entry has at the top of their list). We'll assume that the studio's word is gospel, of course, since it's their title! If we learn anything different, then we'll update you promptly. Our thanks to reader Shane Worden for his help with this story.


    UPDATE (10/9): After reading our above write-up, the P.R. folks for the studio reached out to us to clear things up. Simply put, they are providing different extras that are exclusive to Amazon's version of the title, which aren't available on copies sold at other retailers. Specifically, we're told that the Amazon list of bonus material we relayed should be found on the Amazon-exclusive Limited Edition Blu-ray version. This is not a new practice for CBS/Paramount, as many of you are probably aware.

    Order this title from Amazon.com
