Saturn 3 Blu-ray

Posted August 12, 2013 05:23 PM by Webmaster

Shout FactoryScream Factory, the horror-thriller offshoot of independent film distributor Shout Factory, has revealed that it plans to release a combo pack edition of director Stanley Donen's classic sci-fi thriller Saturn 3 (1980), starring Farrah Fawcett, Kirk Douglas, and Harvey Keitel. The release is expected to arrive on the market in December.

Saturn 3 is one of a number of catalog titles Shout Factory has licensed from British distributors ITV Studios. You can read more about Shout Factory's relationship with ITV Studios here.

Adam (Douglas) and Alex (Fawcett) are scientists seeking new forms of food deep beneath the surface of Saturn's moon Titan. Their laboratory is a space-age Eden and their life is idyllic until the arrival of Captain James (Keitel), a murderous psychopath, and his "helper" robot Hector. As Saturn goes into eclipse and cuts the station off from the rest of the universe, Captain James and Hector terrorize Adam and Alex. When the homicidal robot turns on its creator, James is torn apart trying to disassemble it and the scientists are forced to battle it out for themselves. With hector plugged into the station's control system, Adam and Alex must attempt to destroy everything they have built in order to save themselves.

Back in the day it was more famous for a Farrah Fawcett "boob shot" than anything else. But, as you guys say, a fun film.

I see this as a guilty pleasure, I suppose, but yes it is fun. In the same way a "Galaxy of Terror" or some other B-movies from that period are fun. Farrah was hot then; a space killer robot B-movie is fun; Kirk Douglas is unintentionally hilarious in this; and I'm a die-hard Harvey Keitel fan. So, what's not to like??? I just remember that, sadly, the 70s began with Martin Scorsese making his breakout "Mean Streets" movie, starring Harvey Keitel and Robert De Niro. Keitel played a couple more supporting roles for Scorsese ("Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore", "Taxi Driver"; in addition to their early collaboration, "Who's That Knocking at My Door?") , while De Niro became Scorsese's leading man, in "Taxi Driver", and then in many other films. The sad part comes when, in 1980, as De Niro and Scorsese reached their zenith, "Raging Bull", Keitel was by then working mostly in tiny European B-movies, and was in "Saturn 3" the same year as "Raging Bull". Quite a fall there.

Fortunately, Keitel would reunite with Scorsese again in a few years, and would then be a staple of early Tarantino films. He went on to his greatest successes later on the 90s. What a comeback.

How can one film be a combo pack? When they combined this film with another film are they going to call it the Combo Combo Pack?

This announcement has no details about the disc itself--which cut of the film or if one cut goes on disc one and the longer cut goes on disc two. How about a release date--otherwise you can't really announce this title for anything!

The Blu-Ray DVD combo pack is good news and the artwork looks good, but I was really hoping for a concrete release date. I hope it doesn't get delayed beyond December? of this year.

Saw this in 70mm on release, so the 5.1 should be good.

Hope it includes the 103 minute cut. I'll still get the shorter version though. It's a goofy but fun movie.

@Yagbols, one boob for a millisecond, an old Kirk Douglas is el natural for a lot longer in it. If you got any Yagbols that is.

- Uther: TELL me about it.. and it's a pretty bad "fake" one boob at that... and did we really need to see Kirk's pancake butt? There is a quote on that SATURN 3 page where the producer said “When actors get old they get obsessed about wanting to be nude … and Kirk wanted to be naked.” But I think the quote from the book MONEY takes the cake:

"In his 1984 satirical novel Money, (which was in part drawn from Amis’ own experiences while working on Saturn 3), Amis concocted a character purportedly based on Douglas himself. The story follows a tyro film director, John Self, as he struggles to make his troubled feature debut, while dealing with the eccentricities of his cast; including aging past-his-prime movie star Lorne Guyland, who features in the following passage:

The script conference ended with Lorne shrugging his robe to the floor and asking me, with tears in his eyes, ‘Is this the body of an old man?’ I said nothing. The answer to Lorne’s question, incidentally, was yes. I just flourished an arm and clattered down the stairs. Thursday gave a tight smile as she opened the door. ‘Is he nude?’ she asked coldly.

‘Yeah he’s nude.’

‘Oh boy,’ said Thursday."

@Monroville, Hey dont bad mouth Kirk. His acting was the best thing in this flick and he did not embarrass himself half as much as Harvey 'Full Frontal' Keitel did later.
