If the Oscars were set up like a high school yearbook, Reign of Fire might just walk away with the award for “Most likely to become a cult classic”. The futuristic dragon-hunting flick will get a decent DVD release this November from Buena Vista Home Entertainment.
In the mid twenty-first century, a British mining expedition uncovers something best left unfound; dragons. The rekindled dragon race quickly revitalizes to once again lay waste to humanity and its up to the only survivor of the original incident and a group of American soldiers to end the war between humans and dragons.
The disc won’t be laden with features, but it won’t be lacking either. A new anamorphic widescreen transfer and English and French Dolby Digital 5.1 audio tracks will be complimented by the two featurettes “A Conversation with Rob Bowman” and “The Special Effects of Reign of Fire”. Theatrical trailers will also be part of the package.
November 9th is quickly looking to be a heavy release date for DVD. “Reign of Fire” joins the fray with a suggested retail price of $29.95.
