Matinee Collector’s Edition Final Specs

Coming from Shout Select on January 9th!

Shout Select, the prestige sub-label of Shout! Factory, has announced the final specs for their upcoming Blu-ray Collector’s Edition of director Joe Dante’s Matinee (1993).  This was one of our most anticipated discs of 2017, which was pushed back slightly to early 2018.  However, it sounds like the wait will be well worth it, as Shout Select has loaded the release with special features.

This is a truly great movie — one of director Joe Dante’s best films, featuring one of John Goodman’s best performances.  We’ll be amongst the first to pick it up on January 9th!

 

Here are the full details from the Shout! Factory website:

Synopsis: John Goodman is at his uproarious best as the William Castle-inspired movie promoter Lawrence Woolsey, who brings his unique brand of flashy showmanship to the unsuspecting residents of Key West, Florida.

It’s 1962, and fifteen-year-old fan Gene Loomis (Simone Fenton) can’t wait for the arrival of Woolsey, who is in town to promote his latest offering of atomic power gone berserk, Mant! But the absurd vision of Woolsey’s tale takes on a sudden urgency as the Cuban Missile Crises places the real threat of atomic horror just 90 miles off the coast. With the help of Woolsey’s leading lady, Ruth (Cathy Moriarty), the master showman gives Key West a premiere they’ll never forget. Anything can happen in the movies, and everything does in this hilarious tribute to a more innocent (and outrageous) time in American cinema.
