The Time Machine (1960) Blu-ray

Posted March 12, 2014 01:00 AM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryWarner Bros. Home Entertainment is bringing filmmaker George Pal and screenwriter David Duncan's The Time Machine (1960) to Blu-ray this summer. Based on the 19th century H.G. Wells novel of the same name, the science fiction classic stars Rod Taylor, Alan Young, Yvette Mimieux, Sebastian Cabot, Yvette Curtis and Tom Helmore, and makes its Blu-ray debut on July 8th.

Official Synopsis: From H.G. Wells' landmark novel comes this beloved adventure about an inventor (Taylor) who builds a time-travel device that whisks him through a war-ravaged 20th century and into a far-off era where humans are enslaved by evil subterranean mutants.

Warner Bros. has yet to reveal technical specifications or special features.

Even if they don't release in Europe, it will still be region free so just import. Super excited that this is coming out.

PLEASE Warner, release a great looking version of this classic. Lately their catalog blu rays are from old transfers and crammed on 25 GB disc with low bit rate (causing video problems). Warner needs to start taking these older films more serious when it comes to HD. Just don't throw "whatever you have" onto a disc and expect fans to buy into it. This fan won't. So this is wait and see for me.

@cdmaniac: Click on the Amazon link to see their version of the cover. It should settle your nerves.

@montyb: I agree in principle but the problem is that even when the studio spends big bucks to produce a superb new transfer it doesn't sell any better. The market for older catalogue titles has fallen into the laps of Olive, Twilight etc. Twilight can't sell even 3,000 copies of most of the very good catalogue films they're subleasing from the majors. In the days of DVD and even VHS/BETA, a 3,000 copy run would have been gone in very short order. The audience for catalogue titles is getting older and less acquisitive. The main audience today only wants current titles.

I'm on it! Hopefully they'll do a good job. Here's hoping for more from the Golden Age of Science Fiction. As far as "catalog" titles; I may not be in the main demographic but those are the titles that excite me the most. Watching a great older film on BD is almost like a real Time Machine.

YES! Definitely one of my favorite classic sci-fi movies. I never tire of watching it and am stoked about owning it on high def, although like montyb, I'm going to wait and see how WB handles its release. Current or not, please give it the care it deserves.

And for God's sake make it region free!!! Truly love this film. In the book Weena just disappears: This is a rare example where Hollywood has improved a story with better character development. Should also look glorious in Technicolor.
