Danny Boyle's hit suspense film 28 Days Later comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The transfer does a fabulous job of capturing the often gritty, yet occasionally lovely digital photography that helped earn the film its well-deserved audience. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, while Spanish and French soundtracks have been recorded in Dolby Digital Surround. English and Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include an entertaining commentary track recorded by Boyle and screenwriter Alex Garland. The two had previously collaborated on The Beach, and they have an easy repartee with each other. Three alternative endings are offered, along with commentary explaining why those endings were discarded. One of these is a close to 15-minute sequence that utilizes storyboards and an old script read by Garland and Boyle in order to show how the film's third act might have changed. These endings will be familiar to anyone. There are half a dozen deleted scenes with optional commentary, a close to 30-minute making-of featurette, trailers, a still photo gallery, and a music video. This is a strong release from 20th Century Fox.
