WARNER HOME VIDEO and its subsidiary NEW LINE HOME VIDEO have been leaders in developing DVD-ROM-enhanced DVD videos, and the November release of Warner Bros' summer blockbuster THE PERFECT STORM is no exception.
Warner's DVD release of THE MATRIX was the first to offer DVD-ROM-equipped computer users an exclusive invitation to "chat" with the film's writer-directors ANDY and LARRY WACHOWSKI and with the special effects team while watching a live screening of the film online.
A similar type of online event was recently repeated with THREE KINGS director DAVID O. RUSSELL and actor MARK WAHLBERG.
Warner is positioning "Storm" to have a similar online live "chat" next year with director WOLFGANG PETERSEN and a cast member to be named later.
