Army of Darkness - 3-Disc Set by Scream Factory
4K Mastering, International Version, US Cut and DC
For October 27nd, 2015, the US label Scream Factory announced the release of a 3-disc Blu-ray set for Army of Darkness. And it seems to deliver the whole package: apart from the US theatrical version and the Director's Cut it will also contain the international version. And each version will get its own disc.
Since not all material of the DC could be found for a new sampling and the label couln't get permission to sample the US version anew, they decided to give the international version the 4K treatment from the interpositive. Also, some new bonus materials were produced: a 96-minute making of, behind the scenes, storyboards and picture galleries are on board, among other things.
