The collector's edition of Michael Mann's crime thriller hitting Blu-ray in May has been detailed.
As previously reported, Scream Factory has revealed 'Manhunter: Collector's Edition' will arrive on Blu-ray on May 24.
FBI agent Will Graham (William Petersen) has captured the diabolical Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Brian Cox), nearly losing more than just his mind in the process. But when Graham is called out of retirement to hunt the psychopath known as "The Tooth Fairy" (Tom Noonan in a role Entertainment Weekly calls "one of the freakiest madmen Hollywood has ever given us") he must once again confront the horrors of "Hannibal The Cannibal." If Will Graham enters the mind of the serial killer, can he ever come back?
Joan Allen (The Contender), Dennis Farina, Kim Greist and Stephen Lang co-star in this shocking thriller directed by Michael Mann and adapted from the novel Red Dragon by Thomas Harris. But be warned: Fans and critics alike consider Manhunter to be far superior to The Silence Of The Lambs, as well as one of the most unnerving serial killer movies ever made.
The 2-disc set will include: NEW The Mind of Madness – an interview with William Petersen (18 minutes); NEW Courting a Killer – an interview with actress Joan Allen (16 minutes); NEW Francis is Gone Forever – an interview with actor Tom Noonan (22 minutes); NEW The First Lecktor – an interview with actor Brian Cox (40 minutes); NEW The Eye of the Storm – an interview with director of photography Dante Spinotti (36 minutes); NEW The Music of MANHUNTER – including interviews with composer Michel Rubini, Barry Andrews (Shriekback), Gary Putman (The Prime Movers), Rick Shaffer (The Reds) and Gene Stashuk (Red 7) (42 minutes); Original Theatrical Trailer; Still Gallery; Audio Commentary by writer/director Michael Mann; Director's Cut of the film (in Standard Definition); The Manhunter Look - A Conversation with cinematographer Dante Spinotti (10 minutes); and Inside Manhunter with stars William Petersen, Joan Allen, Brian Cox and Tom Noonan (18 minutes); plus newly commissioned cover art by Christopher Franchi.
