The supernatural action-thriller The Invisible haunts its way onto DVD and Blu-ray Disc on October 16th from Hollywood Pictures Home Entertainment.
From the producers of the box office smash hit “The Sixth Sense,” director David S. Goyer’s gripping thriller The Invisible stars Justin Chatwin (“War of the Worlds”) as Nick Powell, a bright and sensitive high school student with precious few hours to solve his very own murder. In order to escape a haunting world between life and death, Nick solicits the help of the only other person who can see him, classmate Annie Newton (Margarita Levieva from TV’s “Vanished”).
In a tragic case of mistaken identity, Nick is brutally attacked and his body is left for dead. Now in limbo, not quite dead but invisible to all but one of the living, his spirit can only watch as his mother, and the police search frantically for him, unaware that he is only hours away from truly perishing.
Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden (“Pollock”) portrays Nick’s widowed mother Diane Powell, with Chris Marquette (“Alpha Dog”) as best friend Pete.
The gripping bonus features include deleted scenes, music videos from two of the hottest bands, feature audio commentary from David S. Goyer and writer Christine Roum, and a second audio commentary with writer Mick Davis’ take on the film.
Director Goyer (“Zigzag”) broke into Hollywood in the early 1990s as a screenwriter and is now one of the industry’s more sought after action-thriller filmmakers, with “Blade: Trinity” among his recent directorial efforts. Goyer has rightfully earned a reputation as a topflight mystery-thriller scribe. His resume lists “Batman Begins” for director Christopher Nolan; Alex Proyas’ cult classic “Dark City”; and the “Blade” franchise starring Wesley Snipes.
Based on a Mats Wahl novel and the subsequent 2002 Swedish film “Den Osynlige,” The Invisible was co-scripted by Mick Davis (who along with Wahl co-wrote the Scandinavian movie) and Christine Roum (TV hit “Law and Order”).
DVD and Blu-ray Disc bonus features:
Deleted Scenes – more than 13 minutes worth of never-before-seen footage
Music Videos – Watch the video of “The Kill,” the song that catapulted 30 Seconds to Mars to fame. Also, “Taking Back Control” by up-and-coming band, Sparta
Feature Audio Commentary – See the film through the eyes of Director David S. Goyer and writer Christine Roum and another audio commentary from writer Mick Davis
