In an early announcement to retailers, Shout Factory is working on 'The Decline Of Western Civilization Collection' for Blu-ray on June 30.
Penelope Spheeris' The Decline Of Western Civilization was perceived as shocking and outrageous at the time of its original release in 1981 and its two follow-up films were no less extraordinary and revealing. Today, museums and educational institutions around the world present them as a historically significant works of art. Featuring some of the most influential and innovative musicians and groups of all time – Germs, Black Flag, X, Fear, Circle Jerks, Alice Cooper and Ozzy Osbourne, these riveting, unflinching and hard-core films adeptly captured the spirit of a major cultural phenomenon.
Now for the first time, all three films are available in one deluxe box set. And while all three films have been restored in high definition, they are in keeping with the feel of the rebellious times in which they were shot. Here's an immersive tour of in-your-face filmmaking and music.
The Blu-ray set will feature a new 2K scan of each film supervised by Director Penelope Spheeris and supplements will include: Audio Commentary By Dave Grohl, Tawn Mastrey Of KNAC Interviews Penelope Spheeris, Never-Before-Seen Original Footage, Performances and Interviews, Mark Toscano Of The Academy Film Archive Interviews Penelope Spheeris, Theatrical Trailers, 40-Page Booklet Featuring Rare Stills And Text By Domenic Priore, and More…
