Yesterday we broke the big news that Sin City will return to the big screen in sequel form. Now Buena Vista and Dimension have confirmed that Frank Miller's Sin City will hit DVD on August 16th with an MSRP of $29.99. The disc will feature 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen video, with both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 audio. In April on IGN, Rodriguez previously announced that viewers will have the option of watching the whole film together or watching each book separately as they appeared in the novels, complete with new footage not included in the theatrical release. "I'm gonna have another 10 minute, it'll be a 20 minute film school probably for this one because there's so many things," said Rodriguez. "And I'll have another 10 minute cooking school. It will be Sin City breakfast tacos." The extras have yet to be officially unannounced, but says they "look to be just a production featurette and storyboards." A more elaborate release will probably happen sometime in 2006. In the DVD industry they call this "double dipping." Why should consumers have to pay to own a movie two times?
