The Brood and the Scanners Trilogy Prepped for Blu-ray
Posted August 20, 2012 06:25 PM by Webmaster
Independent British distributors Second Sight Films have revealed that they are preparing Blu-ray releases of David Cronenberg's The Brood (1979), starring Oliver Reed, Samantha Eggar and Art Hindle, and the three Scanners films: Scanners (1981), Scanners II: The New Order (1991), and Scanners III: The Takeover (1992).
Exact technical specs and supplemental features to be included with these upcoming releases are unknown at the moment. However, the distributors have indicated that they should be available on the market in late 2012/early 2013.
As usual, Blu-ray.com will update you with more information as soon as such becomes available.
The early DVD release of The Brood in the UK (by Anchor Bay) contained the longer 'US' cut (as well as the shorter UK cut), albeit of inferior quality - I'm wondering/hoping that something can be done with this for its transition to HD?
