'New Moon' DVD & Blu-Ray Due March 20

“New Moon” is coming to DVD and Blu-Ray on March 20.

The Saturday release date will allow for midnight release parties at retailers across the country.

The home release of the box office hit will bridge the gap between the theatrical release of “New Moon” last November and the next film in “The Twilight Saga,” “Eclipse,” which is due June 30.

“New Moon” earned over $142 million during its first weekend in theaters — the third-biggest debut ever.

Among the DVD and Blu-Ray release’s special features are an audio commentary from director Chris Weitz and editor Peter Lambert, a six-part documentary on the making of the film, behind the scenes footage with soundtrack band Muse and three music videos.

“Twilight,” the first film in the series, was the top-selling DVD of 2009.
