Today I gathered some information from the Blu-ray of Michael Jackson’s This Is It, which I’ll be reviewing in the next few days. I use BDInfo to drill down into the tech details, and go through every menu link on the disc in a player, relating what BDInfo tells me to each item I find and recording it in my database.
But sometimes, like a re-assembled clock, there are bits left over. BDInfo suggested that there were four substantial elements not accessible via any menu on the disc in normal playback, at least as far as I could find. It turned out that they are movie trailers, which is odd. The disc does have an entry for trailers under its ‘Special Features’ menu, but shows only one (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs).
I dragged the files to the player on my computer one by one to see what they were. They turned out to be the trailers for Did You Hear About the Morgans?, The Men Who Stare at Goats, Planet 51 and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.
