Find the Easter Egg on Iron Man DVD, Blu-Ray
Sunday, March 07, 2010
While Thanksgiving might be around the corner, you can find a fun “Easter egg” on Paramount Home Entertainment’s Iron Man, the best-selling DVD and Blu-ray Disc in the country.
For the uninitiated, an Easter egg is a little goodie you can find on hundreds of today’s DVDs and Blu-ray Discs. Planted there by Hollywood studios, or the companies that master the disc, these little-known extras can only be found by pressing the correct buttons on the remote, usually in the menu screens. An Easter egg can be anything from a hidden interview or music video to a game or a blooper reel.
Paramount hid one on its Iron Man: Ultimate 2-Disc Edition DVD and Blu-ray Disc. Here’s how to find it on the DVD:
Pop the first disc into your DVD player and from the main menu, select “Special Features.” Now highlight the words “Main Menu” at the bottom of the screen but don’t press the Enter button just yet. Instead, tap the left arrow button on the DVD remote and a circle in the middle of the tuxedo jacket will become illuminated. Press Enter (or Select on some DVD remotes) and enjoy a humorous interview with Marvel’s Stan Lee and Iron Man actor Robert Downey Jr. having a good time on the red carpet.
If you own the Blu-ray version, from the main menu scroll down to BD-Live and press the right arrow on the Blu-ray remote. A schematic of Iron Man’s hand will appear. Now press Enter to see the clip.
