First up was the "Final Destination 3" DVD, coming out next week. In attendance for the film were director James Wong and actors Ryan Merriman and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. While the release of a DVD for a small-budgeted sequel may not be big news, the features on this DVD are.
This DVD contains a "choose your own adventure"-type of feature, where viewers can choose who will live or die in the film. Apparently, this was planned for early on in the production. The actors and director admitted that creating this feature was a bit tiring at times, but they still had fun working on it.
The actors also talked about the filming of the "roller coaster crash" scene, which is covered extensively in a "Making of" featurette on the DVD. It took place over five days on location and in front of a green screen. The first day shooting on location, the actors had to ride a dizzying roller coaster over twenty times, and felt like they "had broken a record." They then discovered over the next few days that they would break that record many more times.
After the "Final Destination 3" group left the stage, a video was screened of Jack Black and Kyle Gass. They were introduction a clip for their film, "Tenacious D in 'The Pick of Destiny.'" "This movie will blow your nuts into your butt and leave them there," Black told the audience.
The clip showed a character playing a young Jack Black rocking out and battling his father, played by Meatloaf. Dio also made an appearance to help inspire the young Black character. The audience screamed in approval at his appearance.
