People seem to forget that John Carpenter’s STARMAN was nominated for an Academy Award back in 1984 – actor Jeff Bridges got a best actor nod for his take on alien turned human and let’s be honest – Karen Allen should have been nominated as well – she is amazing as the recently widowed Jenny Hayden. A beautiful story – and some of Carpenter’s best work – the film is getting a much deserved Collector’s Edition Blu-ray from Scream Factory and while we don’t have the final word on what all will be on the disc – we do have a release date and a look at the brand new artwork that will be gracing the release. Scream Factory posted the following on their Facebook feed: “As many of you recall we announced that we were prepping Mr. Carpenter’s touching sci-fi journey for a future Collector’s Edition. We still are in progress, but do have some early details to share with you today. – Official street date is December 18th for U.S. and Canada territories (Region A)
– Release will come with a slipcover (guaranteed for three months after its original release date) – The newly-commissioned artwork pictured comes to us from artist The CRP Group (Firestarter, Rabid, Exorcist II, Drag me to Hell). This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will showcase the original theatrical poster art design. – Extras are still underway and will be announced at a later time in Nov. However today we can announce a significant one that is confirmed: An all-new interview with actor Jeff Bridges! Once again National release date is planned for 12/18/18. However, if you pre-order now for early shipping directly from us @ https://www.shoutfactory.com/p…/starman-collector-s-edition… you will also receive an 18′ x 24″ rolled poster of the newly-commissioned art.
