City of Ember DVD Release: January 20, 2009

Wednesday, November 19th, 2008

City of Ember DVD ArtThe terrific and underrated City of Ember will be released on January 20, 2009. It’s rumored to be a bare-bones release with just the film and no special features, which would be a terrible shame. This is a film that I would LOVE to see features for.

I have wanted more features for Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium (the DVD had some, the Blu-ray had none… explain that to me), and I hope I’m not wanting for more features for this.

It really is a shame that more people didn’t go see City of Ember at theatres. Probably a combination of the economy and the time of year it was released.

City of Ember Set Report Preview – 1

Friday, September 14th, 2007

The City of Ember. A city of darkness. A city that knows no sun, no moon, no stars, no trees. Only darkness.

Flood lights pierce through the utter darkness with flickering light for 14 hours each day. Enough time for Emberites to work for their city…to keep it alive.
