The Ray Harryhausen classic '20 Million Miles to Earth' will receive the full red carpet treatment when it makes its Blu-ray debut this December.
As we've previously reported, Sony first announced its plans for '20 Million Miles to Earth' this past summer, setting a day-and-date December 4 bow on Blu-ray and DVD. Now the full specs are in, with the studio planning a fully-loaded 50th Anniversary Edition that sure to thrill fans.
Among the copious goodies are: a group audio commentary with Harryhausen and fellow effects legends Dennis Muren, Phil Tippett and Arnold Kunert; three retrospective featurettes ("Remembering 20 Million Miles to Earth," "The Colorization Process" and "David Schechter on Film Music's Unsung Hero"); two interview segments featuring director Tim Burton with Harryhausen, and actress Joan Taylor; multiple still galleries; and a "Digital Sneak Peek" at the upcoming '20 Million Miles to Earth' comic book.
Tech specs are just as impressive, with 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.
Finally, the studio has revealed the disc's final cover art:
Sony has set a suggested retail price for the Blu-ray of $28.95.
