Tags: Image Entertainment, Disc Announcements (all tags)
An extended cut of the 2004 thriller from writer/director Robert Hall is bound for Blu-ray this January.
In an early announcement to retailers, Image Entertainment is preparing 'Lightning Bug' for Blu-ray on January 15.
'Lightning Bug' is a nostalgic journey through the budding aspirations and sobering realities of youth, as told semi-autobiographically by writer/director Hall. Bret Harrison ("Reaper," "Grounded For Life," "The O.C.") stars as Green Graves, a young Alabama man desperate to escape the stifling grip of his rural confines. In a Bible-Belt town chock full of misfits, Green finds escape and solace in his longing to create special effects creatures in Hollywood. Despite finding a kindred spirit in a local girl with a sordid past, Green soon learns that sometimes the most frightening monsters aren't always made of rubber and latex.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include Afterglow: A Look Back at Lightning Bug; The Making of Lightning Bug; Audio Commentary with Writer/Director Robert Hall and cast; and Deleted Scenes.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $17.97.
