Tom Cruise and Tim Curry bringing Legend to Blu-ray

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant

Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced that the 1985 fantasy film LEGEND, starring Tom Cruise, Tim Curry and Mia Sara, will be released on Blu-ray on May 31, 2011. The film was directed by Ridley Scott and follows a young man named Jack (Cruise) who must stop the Lord of Darkness (Curry) from marrying the woman he loves and destroying daylight. The Blu-ray will include both the theatrical version of the film with a run-time of 94 minutes as well as a director’s cut with a run-time of 114 minutes.

LEGEND is one of those cult classics that apparently everyone has seen but me, which I should see but I don’t feel too bad that I haven’t. Why you ask? That would be because the film sounds a little ridiculous and cheesy and although some cheese it good, I think it usually tends to be worse in fantasy films, especially ones that were made in the 1980’s. Special features include:
