Dawn of the Dead remake coming to Scream Factory in a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray
Yesterday we revealed that classic catalog horror and fantasy stalwarts Scream Factory were bringing George A. Romero’s 4th “Dead” film Land of the Dead to Blu-ray in a special 2-Disc Collector’s Edition. Today the studio teased that they’re also bringing one of the key films that re-ignited the current zombie craze and enabled Romero to make Land, Zack Snyder’s 2004 remake of Romero’s 1978 masterpiece Dawn of the Dead.
Yesterday we announced George A Romero’s Land of the Dead and today we bring you even more zombie action in the form of Zack Snyder’s thrilling 2004 remake of DAWN 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” 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 Nathanael Marsh (Carrie, The John Carpenter steelbooks). 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 today that this will be a 2-disc set and will sport new extras (including interviews with Ty Burrell, James Gunn, Jake Webber, David Anderson & Heather Langenkamp Anderson) plus the theatrical and unrated versions of the film.
– Official street date is 10/24/17. However, if you pre-order now directly from our website @ www.shoutfactory.com you’ll get it two weeks earlier plus you’ll received a free 18” x 24” rolled poster of the newly-designed key art (while supplies last)!
Will you be picking up this high-octane zombie thriller when Scream Factory releases it? Sure, it ain’t Romero’s Dawn… but what other movie even comes close?
