'World Trade Center' due Dec. 12


Oliver Stone's "World Trade Center" will be released on standard DVD and both high-def disc formats on Dec. 12, Paramount Home Entertainment is expected to announce Monday.

  The film, based on the true story of two policemen trapped in the rubble of the World Trade Center in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, will arrive in stores in four versions: a single-disc DVD, a two-disc "commemorative edition" DVD, a two-disc HD DVD and a two-disc Blu-ray Disc.

  All four versions come with nine deleted or extended scenes, a commentary by director Stone, and a second commentary by real-life survivor Will Jimeno and rescuers Scott Strauss, John Busching and Paddy McGee.

The three double-disc editions also feature a three-part making-of documentary; featurettes on set construction, visual and special effects, rescue and recovery and "Oliver Stone's New York"; a question-and-answer session with Stone; a photo gallery; and five TV spots.

The single-disc DVD lists for $29.99; the two-disc DVD, $33.99; and the high-def discs, $39.99 each.
