A Clockwork Orange coming to special edition Blu-ray this May!
A CLOCKWORK ORANGE is currently available on Blu-ray and it's possible that many of you own it. But even if you do, I think you'll still want to pick up the brand new A CLOCKWORK ORANGE: 40TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION, which was just announced for a May 31st release.
In addition to the features already existing on the current Blu-ray, the two-disc set will include two newly-produced bonus features: Turning Like Clockwork, a 25-minute documentary about the film’s “ultra-violence” and its cultural impact, and a short documentary where Malcolm McDowell reminiscences on working closely with the legendary director. It will also include the feature-length documentary "Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures," once available separately on DVD but out of print for some time now.
The ANNIVERSARY EDITION will be packaged in a 40-page Blu-ray book that includes rare behind-the-scenes photos and a full set of production notes. It can be yours for a list price of $34.99 but if you click that little red link below, you can pre-order it for $25.99 (hint, hint).
