The Number 23 Hits Our Doorstep
Well well, look what made it's way to our front door today! Joel Schumacher and Jim Carrey's The Number 23. If you're unfamiliar with the film, here's the standard press release chatter for you:
"The number 23 is everywhere. The belief that all dates, times, names and the most momentous events in history can be connected to the number is the backdrop of the psychological thriller, The Number 23, arriving on a special edition infinifilmTM DVD from New Line Home Entertainment on July 24, 2007. Jim Carrey stars as family man Walter Sparrow whose life spirals out of control when the chilling murders in a mysterious novel begin to parallel his own life, leading him into a dark world of uncontrollable paranoia. The nightmare begins when Walter Sparrow (Carrey), a mild-mannered dogcatcher, takes home a tattered used book called The Number 23. Reading it, he begins to believe that this isn't just any story -- it's his story. Inside are too many coincidences, all revolving around the number 23, for this to be chance. Rattled by the countless similarities between the degenerate main character and himself, an obsessed Walter starts to descend into madness. And when the book's main character commits an unspeakable act, Walter is terrified that he's destined to follow the same twisted path."
We here at DVD Stalk have been patiently awaiting the arrival of The Number 23 on DVD and we're stoked to able to grab an early peek all the killer infinifilm features. New Line never fails to impress with their infinifilm titles, and this disc looks to be no exception. Just take a look at the list of features:
• "All-Access Pass" features:
o Feature commentary with director Joel Schumacher
o Deleted scenes with commentary from director Joel Schumacher
o "Making of The Number 23" documentary
o "Creating the World of Fingerling" featurette
• Beyond-the-Movie documentaries:
o "The Number 23 Enigma" - the legacy behind the obsession with the number 23
o "How to Do Your Numbers" - the history of numerology
• infinifilm links - behind-the-scenes branching featurettes
o Original ending
o Original idea
o 23's in the movie
o 23's on the set
o Fingerling's tattoo.
I should have a quick peek early look at the film (and the disc) for you next week, so keep checking the DVD Stalk Blog for updates.

The Number 23 got beat up pretty badly by the mainstream critics, but we plan to go into it with the same open mind we view everything here at DVD Stalk with. If you're tempted, you can check out the pre-order information here.
