Event Horizon Collector’s Edition Blu-ray gets a new release date and details on the new extras

Its name: Event Horizon. The high-tech, pioneering research spacecraft mysteriously vanished without a trace on its maiden voyage seven years ago. But a weak, persistent signal from the long-missing craft prompts a rescue team, headed by the intrepid Captain Miller (Laurence Fishburne), to wing its way through the galaxy on a bold rescue mission. Accompanying Miller is his elite crew and the lost ship’s designer (Sam Neill). What they uncover is unimaginable interstellar horror.

Event Horizon is probably Paul W.S. Anderson’s best movie. I do love it and it still holds up. The film stars Laurence Fishburne, Sam Neill, Kathleen Quinlan, Richard T. Jones, Jack Noseworthy, Jason Isaacs, Sean Pertwee, and Joely Richardson.

Scream Factory has been working on a new Collector’s Edition Blu-ray that was a new 4K scan. It will now be out on 23rd March 2021.

I had hoped it would feature the extended director’s cut that has been rumoured for years, but it looks like, as expected, most of the footage has been lost.

We did an exhaustive search for film elements for the director’s cut, but as you’ll hear in his new 2021 interview, director Paul W.S. Anderson doesn’t think his cut will materialize. Unfortunately, much of the footage is lost and as he mentions, he’d need to shoot new footage. We moved the release date a few times because of some leads, but to our disappointment, they didn’t pan out. We definitely tried our best.

However, there is a whole heap of new extras including with the new release and you can see the full list below.

  1. I wonder if the 2008 documentary “The Making of ‘Event Horizon” (480p, 1:43:01 length) a five-part documentary that was on the 2008 Blu-ray will be in 1080p? Does anyone know if it was produced in HD in 2008?
    Since this collector’s edition is only 1 disc I would guess not.
