Robert Zemeckis’ Death Becomes Her (1992) is getting a special Collector’s Edition release from Scream Factory. The Death Becomes Her Collector’s Edition Blu-ray on April 26, 2016. This Blu-ray release includes a special new interview with Zemeckis. Meryl Streep, Bruce Willis, and Goldie Hawn star in Death Becomes Her.
From Scream Factory: We’ve been on a roll with good news this week on various titles so let’s continue that streak with an update on our upcoming (and very anticipated) Blu-ray release of DEATH BECOMES HER!
- Street date is planned for April 26th and is available for pre-order now at directly through us at https://www.shoutfactory.com/film/film-comedy/death-becomes-her-collector-s-edition. Pre-order links on other fine online retail outlets will begin to populate within the next month or so.
- Director Robert Zemeckis was recently kind enough to do a new interview for us! Because of this and since we have plenty other extras in progress (to be announced at a later date) we have upgraded the release to "Collector’s Edition" status--meaning it will now have a limited-edition slipcover added.
- As thrilled as we are (and suspect you are too) about the new "CE" status, we unfortunately will not be able to create new key art on this release due to complicated legal and likeness issues. Therefore, the classic home video art you see here will be on the slipcover and front-facing on the packaging wrap. The reverse wrap will sport the "purple potion" original theatrical artwork.
Thank you guys for being patient on this one (we announced it last Summer and it was originally planned for a Dec/Jan release). We hope the wait will be worth it!
Directed by Robert Zemeckis
