A new Blu-ray release of David Fincher’s The Game is being lined up for the UK, with a whole host of special features too.

It feels sometimes that The Game is the forgotten film of director David Fincher, a movie that has an impact and a half first time round, but it’s a tougher film to get quite so much out of second time around (although, in our experience, going back for a third run at it is a whole lot of fun).

If you’ve never had the pleasure, though, or fancy a detailed dive back in, then the movie is getting something close to a deluxe Blu-ray release. Arrow is releasing a double disc set this July and it looks like quite the package. It’s using the remaster done and approved for the US Criterion Collection release, and there’s a large collection of extras (many of which are exclusive to this version), listed as follows:

  • Isolated Music & Effects track
  • Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing
  • New audio commentary by critic and programmer Nick Pinkerton
  • Fool’s Week: Developing The Game, a newly filmed interview with co-writer John Brancato
  • Men On The Chessboard: The Hidden Pleasures of The Game, a new visual essay by critic Neil Young
  • Archive promotional interview with star Michael Douglas from 1997
  • Alternatively-framed 4:3 version prepared for home video (SD only), with new introduction discussing Fincher’s use of the Super 35 shooting format

Furthermore, the limited deluxe edition includes a 200 page hardback book, and it’s limited to 3000 units.

It’s all set for release on July 27th, and you can find out more information, and secure your pre-order, here. https://amzn.to/2z6CaOH
