Posted Wed Jun 22, 2016 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The H.G. Wells science fiction film starring Jack Palance is headed for Blu-ray in September.

As previously reported, Blue Underground is working on 'The Shape of Things to Come' for Blu-ray, and now the date has been set for September 27.

Planet Earth is a devastated wasteland, and what's left of humanity has colonized the Moon in domed cities. Humanity's continued survival depends on an anti-radiation drug only available on planet Delta Three, which has been taken over by Omus, a brilliant but mad mechanic who places no value on human life. Omus wants to come to the Moon to rule and intends to attack it by ramming robot-controlled spaceships into the domes. Dr. John Caball, his son Jason, Jason's friend, Kim, and a robot named Sparks embark on Caball's space battlecruiser on an unauthorized mission to Delta Three to stop Omus.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, lossless 5.1 and mono soundtracks, and supplements include: Jason's Journey - New interview with Star Nicholas Campbell; Symphonies In Space - New interview with Composer Paul Hoffert; French Trailer & TV Spot; and Poster, Still, & Pressbook Galleries.
