The Day the Earth Caught Fire Blu-ray

Posted July 17, 2014 10:55 PM by Webmaster

British Film Institute (BFI)The British Film Institute announced today that it will release a Dual Format Edition of one of British cinema's most intense sci-fi offerings, Val Guest's The Day the Earth Caught Fire (1961), starring Edward Judd, Janet Munro, and Leo McKern. The release is scheduled to arrive on the UK market in October.

In August, the newly remastered version of The Day the Earth Caught Fire will also be screened at the British Museum.

Synopsis: After nuclear tests knock the world off its axis, global temperatures start to rise rapidly. In London - where the heat is such that the Thames is in danger of drying up - Daily Express reporter Peter Stenning (Edward Judd), his colleague Bill Maguire (Leo McKern), and his girlfriend Jeanne Craig (Janet Munro), resolve to get to the bottom of the matter. What they eventually find, after fighting through much government red tape, is a truth more shocking than any of them could have imagined.

I've got the DVD and would love to upgrade. This is a good one. Fast, snappy dialog. One of these days I'm gonna have to give in and obtain a region free player. :/ Darn it. And +3 for This Island Earth (and every other 50s sci-fi title).

Finally! BFI does such wonderful work on their transfers. Now BFI, where is THE DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS 1962? That film is crying out for a good restoration and a blu ray release.

The original 35mm camera negative of Triffids 1962 was photo-chemically restored a few years ago and a print has been shown in America but no word on a Blu-ray has emerged.

I worked quite a bit with Val Guest when I was mixing the Hammer House of Mystery and Suspense Series and he spoke a lot about TDTECF, one of the main things he mentioned was the "Export" version which was in his words "very much sexier" , it would be great to see this, he said that the negative was stored in the vaults!

Dual format probably means you'll get the SD released years ago. Let's hope a new print will be struck or I'm keeping my SD.

Such a good movie. I saw it in the theater way back in the '60s. Janet Munro was so sexy in this.

day of the triffids....has NEVER had a good quality release in the original 2:35 AR
The best is actually from a mega rare laserdisc and that "only" has 360 lines resolution!
There are countless dvd's out there,they are ALL rubbish quality,so yeah....a blu of it restored would be awesome to say the least!
