Rather shamelessly packaged to fool you into thinking these are in some way tied-in to the new Paul W.S. Anderson version, this duo of 70s classics have been released onto pin-sharp Blu-ray for the very first time. Enjoy some of the richest production values and costume design that 70s cinema had to offer – all as you’ve never seen it before (even on the big screen, I’d wager) as Blu-rays, here and here.
These are a truly odd and unique pair of films. They were produced by the father-and-son team of Alexander and Ilya Salkind who decided (very much as they did with their later Superman franchise) to produce both films back-to-back. This doesn’t seem especially unusual these days, but it was revolutionary back in the early seventies!

A little over a year ago, we brought you word that Keanu Reeves (The Matrix) was hinting that he’d like to reprise his role as “Ted” Theodore Logan for a third, most excellent adventure with his buddy, Bill S. Preston, Esquire (Alex Winter). At the time Reeves said that they were trying to get part 3 greenlit and when he was asked if he was joking or not, the actor said “I’m not”.
