Nicolas Cage and Season of the Witch coming to Blu-ray
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has announced the supernatural thriller SEASON OF THE WITCH, starring Nicolas Cage, Ron Perlman, Ulrich Thomsen, Claire Foy and Christopher Lee, will be released on Blu-ray June 28, 2011. The story follows a couple of 14th century knights who are tasked to transport a young woman being accused of being a witch and bringing The Black Plague down upon the country to some monks. The film was directed by Dominic Sena and opened to not so great reviews and only grossed around $25 million at the box office which was about $15 million less than the budget. Ouch.
Normally this would be where I defend Nicolas Cage and tell you that he’s going to be making a huge comeback and will regain the glory of times past, but I just don’t have it in me anymore. I think he’s a great actor that has gone down the path of crummy films and I don’t see how he will recover. Sigh. Special features for SEASON OF THE WITCH include:
- Shocking alternate ending
- Deleted scenes
- Behind-the-scenes featurettes
- Audio commentaries (Blu-ray only) and more.
