Cloverfield Blu-ray Scheduled For June 3, 2008

Following the initial wave of titles, Producer J.J. Abrams' monster hit, Cloverfield, arrives on Blu-ray on June 3. Earning over $166 million in worldwide box office to date, Cloverfield thrilled critics and audiences alike with its shocking, first-person video account of a horrifying attack on Manhattan by an unknown -- and seemingly unstoppable -- force. The Cloverfield Blu-ray will include an exclusive feature-length "Special Investigation Mode" with added details about the film. Additional features include a director commentary, Making Of featurettes, deleted scenes, alternate endings with commentary and more. -- High-Def Digest (Emphasis mine.)
The good news here is the exclusive feature-length "Special Investigation Mode" hints at what the most dedicated Cloverfield fans have been starving for, "(...lots of new story stuff, along the lines of the viral campaign's backstory)," -- Anonymous.

Thanks Dennis for the tip, and if you haven't been over to Clues lately, Dennis has exhaustive coverage of all things DVD, from a rundown of all the different versions to downloads to a collection of all the press Abrams and crew have been doing to promote it.
