The limited-edition release of the Ray Harryhausen classic is now on the way from Twilight Time.
As previously reported, Twilight Time has set 'Mysterious Island' for Blu-ray on November 8, and now discs are being shipped to customers.
During the US Civil War, Union POWs escape in a balloon and end up stranded on a South Pacific island, inhabited by giant plants and animals. They must use their ingenuity to survive the dangers, and to devise a way to return home. Sequel to '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.'
The region-free Blu-ray is limited to 3000 copies and features 1080p video, DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (plus original mono) soundtracks, and supplements include: 8-Page Booklet, Isolated Score Track (2.0 Stereo), Original Theatrical Trailer, and Trailer TV Spot #1.
The Blu-ray is only available here from Screen Archives Entertainment for $34.95.
