Bluewater Comics Get the DVD Treatment

Sony Home Video highlights Bluewater Comics as part of Special Features on Ray Harryhausen DVDs.
Later this year will be the Sony Home Video release of Sinbad, in which the upcoming new Bluewater comic series Sinbad and the Merchant of Ages will be included on the DVD.

Two of Ray Harryhausen’s classic films, It Came From Beneath the Sea and Earth vs. The Flying Saucers, are available now in newly colorized and pristine versions from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.. Each title will be available as a two-disc set in color and the original black & white, with viewers able to toggle between the two versions whenever they wish. A monstrous amount of new bonus features make these releases ‘out of this world’ sci-fi entertainment.

As previously announced, 20 Million Miles to Earth: 50th Anniversary Edition will be available on December 4 in high-definition, only on Blu-ray™ High-Def.

It Came From Beneath The Sea was the first collaboration between special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen and producer Charles H. Schneer. Directed by Robert Gordon (Tarzan and The Jungle Boy), the newly colorized film, depicting a giant octopus attacking San Francisco, stars Kenneth Tobey (The Thing From Another World), Faith Domergue (This Island Earth), Donald Curtis (Earth vs. The Flying Saucers) and Ian Keith (The Ten Commandments). The two-disc DVD contains a sneak peek at the Bluewater Productions digital comic book It Came from Beneath the Sea…Again! (By Clay & Susan Griffith and Chris Noeth.)

Earth vs. The Flying Saucers, with its ground-breaking visual effects techniques, was the second of several collaborations between producer Charles H. Schneer and special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen. The film, about the invasion of earth and destruction of Washington D.C., was masterfully directed by Fred F. Sears (Crash Landing) and stars Joan Taylor (20 Million Miles to Earth), Hugh Marlowe (The Day the Earth Stood Still), Donald Curtis (The Ten Commandments) and Morris Ankrum (Invaders from Mars).

The film will offer a sneak peek at the digital comic book called Flying Saucers Vs. The Earth. It's a take on the film from the alien's perspective and will be in stores in April 2008. (By Ryan Burton and Alan Brooks.)

The comic book special feature will feature Diamond Distributor's Comic book locator number for viewers to call to get their comic books.
