Gremlins 2: The New Batch Blu-ray

Posted January 11, 2012 06:03 PM by Josh Katz

Warner Bros.Warner Home Entertainment will bring Gremlins 2: The New Batch to Blu-ray next summer. This madcap sequel to the 1984 horror-comedy finds Billy (Zach Galligan, Waxwork) and his Mogwai Gizmo (Howie Mandel, Gremlins) stuck in an ultra-modern New York City skyscraper and facing off ever-increasing hordes of malicious Gremlins.

Featuring spirited performances from John Glover (Batman & Robin), Phoebe Cates (Fast Times at Ridgemont High), Dick Miller (New York, New York), Robert Prosky (Last Action Hero), Christopher Lee (Horror Express), Robert Picardo (Total Recall), and Tony Randall (Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?) - as well as imaginative special effects from Rick Baker (Men in Black) - director Joe Dante (Piranha) uses the sequel's framework as an excuse to pay homage to his filmmaking inspirations, turning the film's second half into a post-modern collage of Roger Corman cheapies, 1950's monster movies, Looney Tunes cartoons, and even Broadway musicals.

Warner has not released the technical and supplementary specifications for this Blu-ray, so it is still unknown if the disc will include any of the following supplements that appeared on the DVD:
  • Commentary by director Joe Dante, producer Michael Finnell, writer Charlie Haas, and star Zach Galligan
  • Behind The Screams featurette
  • Deleted scenes
  • Gremlin Files feature
  • Gag reel
  • Trailer
Gremlins 2: The New Batch is expected to street on May 8th.

Why does it take so long for them to come out starting from the annoucement,you're talking nearly 4 months.Child's Play was announced for the UK and not out while October.Do they have very slow machines or packers or something?

I always felt this one was just a little too silly. The gremlins in the original, they were silly but scary too. These guys were played for laughs to often. But what the hell who can resist that Gizmo and even Stripe in both forms lol.
Aw Gremlins!

YESS!!!!!! A great post-modern commentary on sequels themselves. I hope the bloopers and deleted scenes are anamorphic and have lossless audio. Warner's been doing a good job with using at least 224kibt/sec on their supplementary audio tracks, and real 24-bit audio on their primary tracks, which would be great here as well. If they just put it on a BD-50 so it can breathe properly without crazy DNR and EE, it's a day one purchase for me.

PS: Hoping for a similar release of UHF, which I think came out the same summer.

@Boothill Gunslinger: I don't care if I'm the minority, I still feel sorry for the people who think the sequel is better. That's MY opinion on the subject, and it will stay that way. Oh, and BTW, bundles doesn't always mean a double feature, I was envisioning a dual pack of both films in there own respective cases, not some one disc bullshit.

Much more over the top than the original, and a bit of a meta-film as well, more tongue in cheek, but seriously, not even close to the original.

Yeah I prefer the original but I do enjoy the mad cap nature of the sequel. You can't accuse it of being boring. And the new Gremlin designs were great by Rick Baker. I watched Gremlins on BD over Christmas and then decided to put on TNB, so I'll wait a while before I buy the bluray. So does anyone think there will be a Gremlins 3, not sure if that domain registration means anything.

Looking forward to seeing this again. Glad it's being released alone, rather than limited to a bundle like Scooby Doo, Every Which Way..., etc., forcing owners of the original to buy the first movie twice, just to get the second.

Gremlins, and Gremlins 2 - Two completely different types of movies; therefore incomparable.

Both awesome.

I'll probably get this, but really, when was the last time a lot of you saw this movie? It's entertaining in a certain ADD way that throws a bunch of visually interesting things at you one after the other, but it doesn't come close to the original. Of COURSE they can be compared, one is a SEQUEL to the other!! From what I've read about this film, director Joe Dante made it intentionally outrageous and ridiculous, in a way to destroy any possibility of it being a franchise that could be "run into the ground." Even though I've been working on a sort-of PREQUEL for years, and there's talk even today of rebooting the "franchise," Gremlins 2 has absolutely nothing on the awesomely original, er, original.

Gremlins 2 is hilarious - the whole film is wall-to-wall gags, which might (understandably) turn off some fans expecting a darker tone like the original, but who cares? I got to see a print of it at BAM a few months ago & the audience went nuts for it. Day one for sure.

By the by, the building they used for the Clamp Center exteriors is a block away from Grand Central Station in NYC. I went to meet a friend who was temping there for lunch a few years back & my jaw dropped when I realized he was working in the Clamp building!

I seen both of these at the movies when i was a kid actually seen the first twice about three years ago the local movie house played a series of xmas movies and it was an original print so the screen was popping, it was film bliss. No way in hell did part 2 even come close
