'Futureworld' Blu-ray Announced and Detailed

Posted Thu Feb 21, 2013 at 10:00 AM PST by

The 1976 cult sci-fi classic is getting the Blu-ray treatment in March.

In an early announcement to retailers, Shout Factory will release 'Futureworld' on Blu-ray on March 26.

Do you remember that disaster at Delos a few years ago when the “Westworld” robots went out of control and killed a few guests? Well, the entire resort has now been rebuilt and redesigned to be completely fail-safe.

To combat the lingering adverse publicity, Duffy, the Delos representative, has offered the IMC Communication Network exclusive rights to the “new” Delos story. Tracy Ballard (Blythe Danner), the network’s top commentator, has been assigned the story with Chuck Browning (Peter Fonda), the newspaper reporter who broke the original “Westworld” disaster story. But as Tracy and Chuck’s private tour starts, they get the feeling the entire resort might not be as safe as Delos thinks…

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack, and supplements include: Theatrical Trailer, Radio Spots, and Still Gallery.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.97.
