Posted April 8, 2014 06:11 PM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryWarner Brothers has detailed its upcoming Blu-ray release of director George Pal's classic adventure film The Time Machine (1960), starring Rod Taylor, Alan Young, Yvette Mimieux, Sebastian Cabot, and Tom Helmore. The release will be available for purchase on July 8th.

Wells' novel stars Rod Taylor as the Victorian scientist whose invention catapults him thousands of years into the future, where humanity has mutated into the gentle Eloi and the savage Morlocks. Dazzling, Academy Award-winning effects and the dazzling Yvette Mimieux highlight this "timeless" adventure.

Special Features:
  • Original theatrical trailer
  • Behind the scenes documentary Time Machine: The Journey Back, hosted by Rod Taylor and featuring Alan Young and Whit Bissell

I thought that cover was some random image they used until it was official...that's too bad. The original poster that they used for the DVD was great, "if ain't broke don't fix it".

Yeah the cover really downgrades this release and the features after some time has passed you think for a blu-ray release would
be different but I guess you get what you get. Just glad it is coming in HD finally.

Whit Bissell, HELL YEAH!!

(Sorry. Always wanted to say that.)

Hey, how about "7 Faces of Dr. Lao"? I've got cash-money for a blu-ray release.

I feel a custom made cover is in order for this one. The snapper case DVD I have on my shelf probably has some of my favorite poster art. Beautiful in every way possible.

Lets hope a company like Zavvi will eventually offer a steelbook edition with the original cover art, because this one, oh my...
Unfortunately, Time machine is not the first classic title reissue to suffer of the photoshop syndrom. And not only classic titles, a film like Mac Tiernan's The hunt for Red October had a very, very bad cover art. Looks like Hollywood is telling movie buffs : hey guys, itīs only a movie. Itīs supposed to be bought, not cherished...
I'm French and in my country we still consider ( but for how long... ) that Cinema is as important as any other major art.

The cover is not original to the blu ray release, but was used by WB when the DVD was re-released from a snapper case to a standard case. Yes, the original artwork would have been better.

The doc is pretty good, and has the short "sequel" included with it where Alan Young and Rod Taylor reprise their roles 20-something years later. I can't see this being in HD as it's probably in standard def but you never know. There isn't enough money in these catalog titles to expect much new from the studios.

The Cover Art looks cheap. I hate those "photoshop" covers. And for this classic they haven't added more bonus. Very dissapointed.

I have decided I can tolerate the average cover for the sake of a 'Quality' transfer to bluray.
Nevertheless, a couple of years ago i bought the Russell Garcia soundtrack of the film on cd (it has great artwork on cover). Perhaps WB could include this "excellent" soundtrack of this film as a special treat for the fans? Perhaps even a poster as well. If there was ever a film that deserves the royal treatment it is this great classic! Come on WB surprise us!!

Yea, the original art by the great Reynold Brown would have been the way to go. Nevertheless, I just hope the transfer look great, hopefully better than the disappointing Journey to the Center of the Earth! I got Pat Boone's autograph on my copy but the PQ is barely better than SD.

It's not the worst cover ever, but I would have preferred the original art. The main thing I care about is the transfer anyway.

The Time Machine (1960) is one of my all-time favorite SFs. But other than, presumably, a nice cleaned up print, there's nothing new here. The bonus feature The Journey Back is very nice and a real treasure. The actors clearly enjoyed this film too. But I have had this bonus feature since my old VHS copy, and would have expected more from a spanking-new BD version. Maybe an audio commentary from a film historian, or a new featurette on the book and film's place in SF history. I'll wait for reviews of the picture quality before a repurchase upgrade to BD. It really would need to be revelatory for me to buy again and replace my DVD.

As long as the picture quality is great, I'm willing to overlook everything else.

Think about this, though, if it had been a Twilight Time release, they would have likely used the original art on the cover.

Why can't they use the original poster art for the cover? That seemed to be standard practice in the VHS/Beta days. I'm getting sick of the crappy cover art that's so common these days.
