John Carpenter’s Starman arrives in high definition

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has just added John Carpenter’s 1984 science fiction film Starman to their Blu-Ray list with an August release date.

Director John Carpenter presents a romantic science fiction odyssey starring Jeff Bridges as an innocent alien from a distant planet who learns what it means to be a man in love. When his spacecraft is shot down over Wisconsin, Starman (Bridges) arrives at the remote cabin of a distraught young widow, Jenny Hayden (Karen Allen), and clones the form of her dead husband. The alien convinces Jenny to drive him to Arizona, explaining that if he isn’t picked up by his mother ship in three days, he’ll die. Hot on their trail are government agents, intent on capturing the alien, dead or alive. En route, Starman demonstrates the power of universal love, while Jenny rediscovers her human feelings for passion.

The release will feature a 1080p high definition transfer with high definition audio. No extras have been announced for this title.

“Starman” will create an exceptional experience on August 11 for $28.95.
