'Weird Science' Dated for Blu-ray

Posted Fri Jul 26, 2013 at 12:00 PM PDT by

Another classic John Hughes' comedy will come alive on Blu-ray this October!

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal will be taking part in some very 'Weird Science' on Blu-ray on October 15.

The Frankenstein legend takes an uproarious twist in this outrageous special effects-laden comedy from the writer-director of 'Sixteen Candles' and 'The Breakfast Club.' Critically acclaimed filmmaker John Hughes is at it again, giving nerdy computer whiz Ilan Mitchell-Smith and his best friend, Anthony Michael Hall, power to create the "perfect woman" (Kelly LeBrock). Like a computer-generated fairy godmother, the duo's out-of-this-world creation guides the pair through the pleasures and pitfalls of adolescence. With a rock beat supplied by many music superstars including Oingo Boingo, this far-out sci-fi fable brings everyone's favorite teen fantasies to life through the miracle of 'Weird Science.'

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: It's Alive!: Resurrecting Weird Science; Weird Science TV Pilot Episode; and Theatrical Trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.98.
