Scream Factory gaat lekker door met toffe cult titels in een nieuw jasje steken en heeft vandaag aangekondigd Piranha II: The Spawning uit te zullen brengen, James Camerons allereerste film! Al wordt hij daar niet graag aan herinnerd. Fans weten wel beter want Piranha II is een ontzettend vermakelijke onzinfilm met vliegende piranha’s. 30 januari zal de Blu-ray/DVD combo de verkoop in gaan, zoals je in het officiële bericht van Scream Factory hieronder kunt lezen.
Look what’s swimming to Blu-ray this in 2018. PIRANHA II: THE SPAWNING – Director James Cameron’s first feature film from 1981 – will be landing on January 30th in the U.S. and Canada and we have some early details for you today!
• This will be branded as a “Collector’s Edition” that will come with a slipcover (guaranteed for three months after its original release date)
• We are implementing a change of our normal practice regarding the artwork strategy on this one. Normally we would commission a new illustrated piece and then provide the original theatrical poster on the reverse. In this case, the already-existing illustrated international key art that you see featured here (which was also used for the domestic VHS release) was so pitch perfect and iconic to the film that we felt it would be a challenge to try to improve upon so we made an exception here. Plus, the theatrical U.S. poster also had a cool design that we wanted to use as well somehow…so that image will be on the reverse. (Image in the thread below)
• Extras and specs are still in progress and will be announced at a later date. However, we can confirm that we will be doing a brand new HD film transfer (finally presented in its proper aspect ratio) and it is the uncut version that was previously seen on the previous DVD release.
Pre-order now directly from our website @ https://www.shoutfactory.com/…/piranha-ii-the-spawning-coll… to get the product two weeks early from national street date plus you’ll receive a free collectible 18” x 24” rolled poster reproduction of the front-facing international key art.
