Standard retailers will carry a one disc Blu-ray edition which features a Director's audio commentary, featurettes and deleted scenes, and a DVD version with an audio commentary and deleted scenes only. Both versions will also come equipped with an UltraViolet digital copy code.

However, die-hard fans will likely be keener for the two disc Blu-ray edition being released exclusively to JB Hi-Fi which which will feature an additional disc of bonus features, including a full length, in-depth behind the scenes documentary over two hours in length, in addition to the extra features found on the standard release.
