Tim Burton's classic fantasy has received a 4K restoration and will be getting a new Blu-ray edition this October.
In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox is sharpening up 'Edward Scissorhands: 25th Anniversary Edition' for Blu-ray on October 13.
Johnny Depp delivers the performance of a lifetime as Edward, an irresistibly charming creation with razor-sharp metal hands and a heart of gold. Edward's lonely life in a Gothic castle changes forever when he meets a kindhearted Avon Lady (Dianne Wiest), who takes him to a pastel paradise known as Suburbia. Thanks to his fantastic talents, Edward becomes a neighborhood sensation, but when he falls in love with Kim (Winona Ryder), he must go to extraordinary lengths to protect her.
The beautifully restored EDWARD SCISSORHANDS: 25th ANNIVERSARY Blu-ray showcases Burton's magical use of color, light and shadow, with clear, rich detail in even the darkest scenes. Considered Burton's most personal and favorite work, EDWARD SCISSORHANDS is one of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment's most successful films. Nominated for an Academy Award® for "Best Makeup", the romantic dark fantasy film is recognized as a quintessential icon for Goth subculture.
The Blu-ray will feature a new 4K restoration, lossless audio, and supplements include: Tim Burton featurette, and two audio commentaries with Tim Burton and Danny Elfman.
This release will also include a few collectibles (Custom paper dolls, a heart shaped cookie cutter and a topiary air freshener that smells like fresh cut grass).
