Marvel Studios’ ETERNALS is ready to bring eons of story into your domain with the home release of the film digital, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD. You can catch it on Disney+ already, but is it worth springing for the extra cost of owning the film? Maybe not.
ETERNALS Cinematic Universe Edition offers pretty standard fare for Marvel home release bonus features — there’s honestly not a whole lot of substance. While well done as always, the pieces lack depth into the overall filmmaking process.
It’s important to note that bonus features vary by product and retailer but below is what we had on the complimentary review copy we received from Disney.
Behind the Scenes
- Immortalized takes a welcomed broad approach to the making of the film starting with its comic origins and heavily features director Chloe Zhao giving insights into the epic scope of the project both in story and production with support from the cast, as well.
- Walks of Life takes a closer look at the diverse and robust cast of heroes sharing their behind-the-scenes thoughts and moments on their characters. It pats itself a little hard on the back about how diverse the film is but it truly is a great message and an enormous step forward in the world of supes.
- Audio Commentary is always a treat and it’s no surprise that director Chloé Zhao stepped into to the role to share details and thoughts on the making of the film — her passion for this project is without question; she’s joined for the commentary Visual Effects Supervisors Stephane Ceretti and Mårten Larsson.
More to Explore
- Gag Reels are so important to the bonus material landscape and Marvel films just do them well. There’s some really great outtakes, flubs, and impromptu moments caught with both the cast and crew.
- Deleted Scenes are unfortunately presented without any sort of context but they’re all scenes that are pretty far along into production with color adjustments and even (unfinished) visual effects. Below is a recap of the scenes courtesy of Disney.
- Gravity – Phastos and Jack have a conversation that leads to a breakthrough.
- Nostalgia – Sprite and Makkari reminisce about humankind while overlooking the ruins of Babylon.
- Movies – Gligamesh and Kingo connect over movies while crossing the Amazon River with the rest of the team.
- Small Talk – Sprite confronts Dane in the museum about his interactions with Sersi.
In the landscape of Marvel Studios home releases, ETERNALS sits perfectly in the ranks with a selection of features that’s neither enviable nor disappointing.
