Warner Bros released the I Am Legend Ultimate Collector’s Edition on DVD/Blu-ray this past week. I was one of those people who thought the movie was two thirds of a good film, so I picked this one up. The set comes with a bunch of interesting collectibles, including an Exclusive 44-Page Concept Sketch Book, 6 Art Cards Showing International Cities Devastated By The Plague Virus and a Collectible Lenticular which is encased in hard plastic. I decided to record the box set with my Flip Mino camera, so that you can better see what’s inside the case.

The set itself includes the theatrical cut, an alternative version with the more controversial ending, a new commentary from director Francis Lawrence and screenwriter/producer Akiva Goldsman, a bunch of behind the scenes documentaries, deleted scenes, four animated comics and a digital copy of the film for portable media players like the iPod/iPhone.
The Blu-ray version looks phenomenal on a 1080p set, and the sound is also pretty incredible. If you enjoyed the film, I recommend picking it up. I hate to sound cheesy but the set is packed with enough great physical extras that it would make for a cool Christmas gift. You can pick it up in stores like Best Buy or Amazon this week for around $40.
