Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced the Blu-ray release of director Richard Donner and writer Brian Helgeland's Conspiracy Theory, which stars Mel Gibson, Julia Roberts, Patrick Stewart, Cylk Cozart and Alex McArthur. The Blu-ray debut of Donner's offbeat romantic action-comedy streets on April 22, 2014.
Synopsis: New York taxicab driver Jerry Fletcher (Gibson) is a man in love with a woman (Roberts) he only observes from afar. She works for the government; Fletcher is an outspoken conspiracy theorist who doesn't trust the government whatsoever. Soon, though, one of his theories proves to be true, sending the unlikely couple in pursuit of the truth. But dangerous people want Fletcher dead, and the only person he trusts is a Justice Department attorney he loves but barely knows.
Warner has yet to detail tech specs and special features.
Best news of the day so far. This was one of those rare films I went to the cinema twice for. I didn't even get bored the second time, which I'm usually yawning or snoring, when I watch a film again too soon, while my memory of it is still fresh.
Just need Universal to release Bird on a Wire and Paramount, What Women Want, and I think my essential Gibson will be complete.
I don't think there was ever an extended version for Conspiracy Theory. If Blu-ray.com have posted the correct coverartwork for the blu-ray release, then it'll be the theatrical, since it's the only version of the film that everyone have seen. Depending on the movie, Extended versions, are not always better, they can be inferior to the theatrical releases.
Haven't seen Conspiracy Theory in years. Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts have pretty good chemistry, and it was nice to see Patrick Stewart in a completely different role from his signature ST:TNG Jean-Luc Picard. Day one for me.
