The late 1970s and early 1980s were a groundbreaking period for science fiction films. It got kicked off by Star Wars, which fueled the imaginations of many directors of the time. It also caused studios to trip over each other in their search for the next big space saga. Some of those films were fun like Battle Beyond the Stars. Others were serious works of art like Alien, The Black Hole, and Peter Hyams' Outland.
Thanks to Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Outland is available on Blu-ray for the first time. This was director Hyams' first journey into deep space. He worked in the sci-fi field once before with Capricorn One, but this 1981 cult classic took him to another world… or moon would be more accurate. Some say this was Hyams' practice for the more complex 2010, which he helmed a couple of years later.
