Lebowski DVD news!

Way out west there was this fella I wanna tell ya about. Goes by the name of Jeff Lebowski. At least that was the handle his loving parents gave him, but he never had much use for it himself. See, this Lebowski, he called himself 'The Dude'."

In the It's-About-Effin-Time news department, we're happy to report that today Universal has announced the specs for the long-awaited special edition DVD of the Coen Bros. masterpiece THE BIG LEBOWSKI. The DVD will be available in two formats: the Collector's Edition and the Achiever's Edition gift set. The latter includes the Collector's Edition DVD and tacks on a series of exclusive Jeff Bridges' photographs from the set, a bowling towel and drink coasters. The DVD itself will feature an introduction to the film by the fictional Mortimer Young (actually actor George Ives acting in a segment written and directed by the Coens), Jeff Bridges' On-Set Photos, capturing life on the set of LEBOWSKI, and "The Making of The Big Lebowski," which is pretty much self-explanatory. There were rumors that a documentary based on the popular Lebowski Fests would be included but doesn't seem to be listed here. And as much as I love all things LEBOWSKI, this doesn't seem as "special" as one might hope from a special edition DVD. But just based on the film itself, it's a must have for any collector's library. The DVD will hit shelves on October 18th with a $20 tag for the regular and a $40 sticker for the souped up version.
