Urgh. I am ambivalent about the latest news from Shout! Factory about The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec. On October 1, they will be releasing a two-disc director’s cut Blu-ray edition.
On the positive side, I guess this means the U.S. release did well enough to justify a follow-up. On the negative, I really hate it when movie companies double-dip — and with only two months’ separation between the releases, that’s pretty egregious.
As with the previous release, the package will include a DVD and digital copy. The special features are listed as a making-of, deleted scenes, and music featurette, all of which were on the previous edition, so I’m not sure what’s going to set this second release apart, beyond “all the original footage included in the acclaimed French release” by Luc Besson.
