Oh that Scream Factory – nary a week goes by that we don’t get news of some kind of release that you know is going to end up in your collection. This time the Factory shines their light on George Romero with the announcement that Land of the Dead will be making an appearence in their much loved Collector’s Edition Blu-ray collection.
As we have become acustomed – Facebook is where the info gets debuted – here’s what they posted:
“We’ll thrilled to add another George A Romero film to our sinister roster this year in the form of LAND OF THE DEAD!
Project is still in progress but here’s what we can tell you so far:
– The Blu-ray release will be branded as a “Collector’s Edition” (of course!) that will come with a slipcover (guaranteed for three months after its original release date.)
– The newly-commissioned front-facing artwork you see pictured comes to us from The CRP Group (Rabid, Firestarter, Serial Mom). The reverse side of the wrap will showcase the original theatrical poster art design.
– Bonus features & specs are still in progress and will be announced sometime in Sept but we can confirm that this will be a 2-disc set and will include new extras plus the theatrical and unrated versions of the film.”
So – we’re going to have to wait a bit for those special features but we can tell you that this one will be hitting on Oct. 24th and we do have a look at that new artwork:
If you are so inclined – you can pre-order this baby now and if you do you’ll be rewarded with a rolled copy of that kick ass artwork you’re looking at right now. Go get it horror fans!
