A pair of Stillman films are in the works for Blu-ray this July.
In an early announcement to retailers, Criterion Collection is preparing 'Metropolitan' for Blu-ray on July 24.
One of the great American independent films of the 1990s, the surprise hit 'Metropolitan' by writer-director Whit Stillman is a sparkling comedic chronicle of a middle-class young man’s romantic misadventures in New York City’s debutante society.
The Blu-ray will feature a 1080p transfer, an uncompressed monaural soundtrack, and supplements include: Audio commentary by Stillman, editor Christopher Tellefsen, and actors Chris Eigeman and Taylor Nichols; Rare outtakes and alternate casting, with commentary by Stillman; and a booklet featuring an essay by critic Luc Sante.
'The Last Days of Disco' will also be available on the same date.
'The Last Days of Disco' is a cleverly comic return to an early 1980s Manhattan party scene from director Whit Stillman.
The Blu-ray will feature a 1080p transfer, an uncompressed monaural soundtrack, and supplements include: Audio commentary featuring Stillman and actors Chloë Sevigny and Chris Eigeman; Four deleted scenes with commentary by Stillman, Eigeman, and Sevigny; Audio recording of Stillman reading a chapter from his book The Last Days of Disco, with Cocktails at Petrossian Afterwards; Behind-the-scenes featurette; Stills gallery with captions by Stillman; Original theatrical trailer; and an essay by novelist David Schickler.
Suggested list price for each Blu-ray is $39.95.
