Disc One of this two-disc Unrated Edition includes the same two previously released audio commentary tracks on the theatrical version. Beginning with the Pre-Production menu selection on Disc Two, there is a 26-minute AVP: The Beginning featurette with a branching video option (via a selectable icon) that takes you further into the pre-production of the film; a seven minute ADIT Workshop featurette, which reveals original footage before it looks scary; three storyboard galleries; and a concept art gallery. Moving on to Production, an astounding 59 minutes of additional making-of footage is available with branching video. There is also a seven-minute look at a Miniature Whaling Station, a 15-minute Facehuggers & Eggs featurette, and a four-minute making-a-scene featurette. A 10-minute Visual Effects Breakdown and three deleted scenes with optional commentary are found in the Post Production menu. Finally, there is an 11-minute highlight on the comic book and a 14-minute look at Monsters In Miniature with Todd McFarlane found under Licensing The Franchise; and an HBO Special and the theatrical and bonus trailers found under Marketing.
