If you can’t endure the wait for Master of Disaster Roland Emmerich’s 2012
to be released on disc, you’ll be relieved to know that the end is nigh. Sony has announced that it will bring the end-of-the-world opus—which has grossed over $736 million worldwide and counting—home on March 2 in a variety of versions.
The single-disc DVD features commentary by Emmerich and co-writer Harold Kloser and an alternate ending that Emmerich mentioned in November; the BD version adds picture-in-picture commentary and BD-Live connectivity. The two-disc DVD and BD editions amp up the disaster factor with the music video for Adam Lambert’s cheesy “Time for Miracles” and a making-of featurette for the video, deleted scenes, plus six other behind-the-scenes featurettes about the movie’s design and the, ahem, “Science Behind the Destruction.” The BD two-disc version also has an interactive Mayan calendar where you can enter your birth date and view your horoscope and personality profile. Of course, if you’re going to take spiritual advice from the 2012 disc, you’re already a bigger disaster than the one depicted in the movie.
