Black Sheep Previews: DO THE RIGHT THING

The 20th Anniversary edition of Spike Lee's first major success, DO THE RIGHT THING, is available on DVD and BD today and the good people at Universal have asked me to tell you a little bit about it in hopes that you get out there and pick it up. The reissue contains over four hours of bonus features and they go a little something like this:

20th Anniversary Edition Feature Commentary with Director Spike Lee
Feature Commentary with Director Spike Lee, Director of Photography Ernest Dickerson, Production Designer Wynn Thomas and Actor Joie Lee
Do The Right Thing: 20 Years Later – New retrospective documentary with the cast and crew
Deleted & Extended Scenes – 11 newly discovered scenes cut from the final version of the film
Behind the Scenes – Spike Lee’s personal video footage from the set of the film
Making Do The Right Thing – In-depth documentary on the making of the film
Editor Berry Brown – Interview with the editor of Do The Right Thing
The Riot Sequence – Storyboard gallery of the climatic riot sequence
Cannes, 1989 – Press conference footage from the 1989 Cannes Film Festival

I personally have never seen this classic so I am very excited about this new edition and there may very likely be a Black Sheep review of the film next month. In the meantime, I have included the original trailer for the film's initial release to get you excited.
