Wow, I think extras are fairly useless. But if I had a serious interest in the making of these films this would be very awesome.

Wonder if he would answer questions about anything else besides Hellboy 2.

That's one of the feature I voted for in the BD-Live polls so I'm curious to see how it'll work out. Should be interesting. Hopefully their BD-Live supports keyboards.

Oh snap! I might have to convince my wife to get this title... but I'm afraid she won't budge on her stance of "wait for Christmas".

It is a longshot but I would love to see the same thing from Nolan for The Dark Knight on Blu-ray.

I'm so against BD Live. Why not just include a commentary on the disc so everyone can enjoy what they paid for?

Well, there is a commentary on the BD Disc too, so I don't see the problem in this case.

I have a question... does anyone have trouble using BD-Live? Every time I find a disc that has it, it does not load for me. Well, I get the loading animation, and it lasts for 40 minutes, and locks up my Playstation 3. So usually I give up and cut the system off. Does it lock up your players or does it instantly start? I don't have any other problems playing Blu-ray, games, online games, etc. BD-Live just never works for me.

I plan to hopefully buy Hellboy 2 2morrow, so if I can get BD-Live working, I really want to see this interview. I am a big fan of Del Toro.

@indiephantom - I see where your coming from with your stance against BD Live.. In the beginning I thought the idea was awesome, but now im starting to get worried that more and more of the features that should be on the disc (such as commentary) will get moved to the BD-Live feature instead, which means in 30 years time there is a high possibility they will no longer be accessible due to servers being shut down etc. At least if they were all on the disc they will be accessible to the consumer for the entirety of the discs life span, but BD Live features thus have a limited life span.

But on the other hand, I think the idea of chats with directors, or similar ideas, is quite a good and unique one. Its ideas such as these, which have no place on the stand alone disc, that BD Live should be used for.

3 questions eh?
can imagine someone doing this
Fan -"wow, are you really Guillermo Del Toro ?"
Guillermo Del Toro -"yes"
Fan -"really?"
Guillermo Del Toro -"yes"
Fan -"You?!"
Guillermo Del Toro - "yes...ok next person"

See, this is what BD-Live should be all about.

Take note, studios.

You've hit on my biggest gripe. I'm not buying that studios will continue to provide new content through BD Live as the years go by. The need to make money. Either we'll pay for the additional stuff directly, or something new will happen. I think a few minor features may be good in this format, like the ones you mention, but this is coming dangerously close to on-demand programming, and some of the early fears we had about blu-ray and anti-piracy.
I mean we're talking about awesome storage space here...let's stop getting excited about BD live and start taking more advantage of extra disc space, which is what is really revolutionary here.
