The box office smash Shark Tale splashes to DVD Feb. 8 from DreamWorks Home Entertainment.
Reeling in $159 million at the box office, the film grossed more than $47.6 million during its opening weekend alone, making it DreamWorks' second-highest opening behind Shrek 2. Shark Tale stayed No. 1 at the box office for three consecutive weeks and made history as the second-biggest October opener ever.
The title will be priced at $19.95 on DVD, $15.95 on VHS. Prebook is Dec. 14.
The animated film tells the story of Oscar (voiced by Will Smith), a little fish who tells a big lie. Trying to keep his secret, he teams up with an outcast shark (Jack Black). But when the lie begins to surface, Oscar's friend, Angie (Renee Zellweger), and Lenny help him stand up to the feared shark Don Lino (Robert De Niro.) Other voice talent includes Angelina Jolie and Martin Scorsese.
DVD bonus material includes a director's commentary, interviews with the cast, games and DVD-ROM activities. Other extras are the dancing featurettes “Club Oscar” and “Club Oscar: Get Your Groove On,” with famed choreographer Nadine “Hi-Hat” Colquhon; “Gigi the Whale,” a tongue-in-cheek audition clip; the behind-the-scenes featurettes “Rough Waters” and “A Fishified World”; “The Music of Shark Tale”; and “Making of Club Oscar.”
