Second Sight Films share details on the extras for their Dawn of the Dead 4K UHD release


Second Sight Films has been working on a new 4K Ultra HD version of George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead which will be available in Blu-ray or UHD formats.

Dawn of the Dead – As hordes of zombies swarm over the U.S., the terrified populace tries everything in their power to escape the attack of the undead, but neither cities nor the countryside prove safe. In Pennsylvania, radio-station employee Stephen (David Emge) and his girlfriend, Francine (Gaylen Ross), escape in the station helicopter, accompanied by two renegade SWAT members, Roger and Pete. The group retreats to the haven of an enclosed shopping center to make what could be humanity’s last stand.

They have now shared details on what else will be in the box and on the discs and it is looking fantastic. Weighing in at just over a kilo it includes a 150-page hardback book and the novelization of the film.

There are three versions of the film – The Theatrical Cut, The Extended Cut and The Argento Cut – all made from a new 4K scan and restoration of the original camera negative. There are also loads of new interviews and featurettes including Zombies and Bikers, a 59-minute documentary, Memories of Monroeville which takes a tour around the shopping mall they used in the film, The FX of Dawn with Tom Savini, The Lost Romero Dawn Interview which features previously unreleased archive interviews and lots more.

Even if you already own the film, I think this may well be a must-have.

You can see the full details below.

Both Dawn of the Dead and a Martin limited edition will be released on 26th October 2020.

Blu-ray version: Discs 1-4 Blu-ray. UHD version: Discs 1-3 UHD, Disc 4 Blu-ray. Blu-ray discs region B (contractual). UHD has no region coding
