The 1973 sci-fi classic is in the works for Blu-ray in March.
In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers says 'Soylent Green' will have a Blu-ray release on March 29.
'Soylent Green' is landmark screen science-fiction, a riveting entertainment and a cautionary tale that holds a mirror to a tomorrow rife with ecological disaster. Working well again in the futuristic genre following 'Planet of the Apes' and 'The Omega Man,' action titan Charlton Heston portrays Thorn, a detective prowling the dank streets of a polluted, overpopulated Big Apple gone rotten in 2022. He’s trailing a murderer – and the trail leads to a stunning discovery. Vividly realized, Soylent Green's world gains its power not just from its special effects but from its heart – a human dimension magnified by the performance of legendary Edward G. Robinson in his moving screen farewell.
Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: Commentary by Charlton Heston and Leigh Taylor-Young, A Look at the World of Soylent Green, MGM's Tribute to Edward G. Robinson's 101st Film, and a theatrical trailer.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
