*Update* Treasure Island DVD review here!
It’s finally 100% confirmed, Treasure Island 1990 DVD approaches! Check out this graphic released to major vendors as a tie-in for the Ben Hur Anniversary Blu-ray release. A collection of Heston films are set to come out with Treasure Island featured most prominently.
Treasure Island 1990 Release Date
So according to the full graphic of this ad insert, we’ll get Soylent Green on Blu-ray and The Bible, A Man for All Seasons, Antony & Cleopatra and Motherlode along with Charlton Heston’s Treasure Island co-starring Christian Bale all on DVD on September 27. Treasure Island 1990 is brought to us by Turner Entertainment, TNT Originals, WHVDirect and WarnerBlu. If you’ve been reading the site you’ll know that this is one of my favorite films and the best adaptation of Treasure Island to date. It features Oliver Reed, Christopher Lee, Pete Postlethwaite and Julian Glover as well; quite the cast. Treasure Island DVD preorders are starting to pop up now.
Treasure Island DVD Pre-orders
Currently I’m not see any movement on this announcement at
Amazon or some of the other major retailers. However, we do have a new entry at the WBShop listing Treasure Island for $9.99, DVDEmpire also has a Treasure Island entry with the above cover art and same $9.99 price and release date. Really hoping for an Amazon Treasure Island 1990 DVD pre-order to pop-up, release date delivery would be excellent. Amazon now has pre-order up (see below!) Can’t wait to see how this looks on DVD, really hope it was well-preserved or got some remastering treatment.
