Independent distirbutors Shout Factory have detailed their upcoming Collector's Edition Blu-ray release of director Russell Mulcahy's The Shadow (1994), starring Alec Baldwin, John Lone, Penelope Ann Miller, Ian McKellen, Peter Boyle, and Andre Gregory. The release will be available for purchase on February 25th.
Alec Baldwin stars as Lamont Cranston, alias The Shadow, in this big screen adaptation of the popular 1930s radio series. Once a gangster himself, Cranston now uses his special powers of invisibility for the collective good, waging a war against his arch-foe, the criminal mastermind Shiwan Khan (Lone). Kahn has kidnapped the scientist father of the beautiful Margo Lane (Miller), built an atom bomb, and threatened to destroy New York City unless a large ransom is paid. Can Cranston locate Kahn's secret headquarters and defuse the bomb or is it bye-bye to the Big Apple?

If this doesn't feature a new HD transfer but is just the same one Universal used for their Blu then I will definitely pass as Uni's BD looked AWFUL and no amount of bonus features would make me buy that again. Come on Shout, let us know if this is a new transfer or not.
