Caruso KTVX ABC 4 Salt Lake City a great day. if you love vin diesel, you'll like this. you can now get your hands on 'triple-x: return of xander cage'. it's now out on dvd and blu-ray. and in today's sponsored segment, we're getting a closer look at the movie from director dj caruso. good morning. good morning, brian. how are you? i'm doing good. you know, you've got the movie coming out here, you've got so many fans excited to see it -- what's in there that we didn't get a chance to see in theaters? do you have a little something extra for us with the dvd and blu-ray? yeah, well i think the best thing about the blu-ray and dvd as far as the extras go is that if you are a fan of these outrageous stunts and the crazy things that we're doing on the big screen, you really get a good behind the scenes glimpse at how the movie was made and how these stunts were accomplished. it really breaks it down in a cinematic film school kind of way. so if you're a film geek or just a big fans of these stunts and how we make them happen, i think those are some of the best features you can find. and at the same time, you get to see a little behind the scenes of how much fun the cast and crew had making this movie -- because it is a pretty fun and outrageous movie. we wanted everyone to go see it and have fun, we want you to get the blu-ray and dvd and have fun. you get a real sense of how much fun we had making the movie. so i think those are the highlights of what you get from the dvd and blu-ray. well, if you're having fun, that definitely translates on screen because the movies have made a lot of money. what do you think it is that fans appreciate most about this franchise? i think the fans relate to the rebels who, kind of, rise to the patriotic call. because it sort of celebrates the uniqueness of all these individuals -- there's xander cage in vin diesels character, you have the adele's and the ruby rose and the donny yen and the deepika. all these deep eclectic characters that are very strong individuals, but collectively when they work together and sort of have this tinge of patriotism, or just trying to be heroic, i think audiences really relate to that in a way. and at the same time, in this new version of triple-x, there's a character for everybody. it's not only relying on vin as xander cage. you have this great menu of these interesting characters. i've found that people are relating to different characters in the movie which is really rewarding. yeah, you have to have someone in the movie you can relate to in the movie, for sure. and as you mentioned, you've got vin diesel back again. what's it like working with him versus any other action hero? well, vin is such an interesting, iconic action figure. i think the fast frachise has sort of anchored him as 'dom' and he's just real, sort of, dark, brooding, but family oriented guy. i think the great thing about xander cage is it really brings out vin's true personality. he loves to have fun, he loves to joke, he loves to have all his friends around. and i think, for me, it was really interesting to see. xander cage is probably a lot closer to vin than dom is as a character in real life. so for me it was a lot of fun. and vin was also one of the producers who helped get this reboot launched. so having him as an actor and as a producer -- it was a lot of fun. of course, we're looking forward to it. and it's now on dvd and blu-ray. we're
