Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will release director David Lynch’s groundbreaking classic Blue Velvet in a 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray with more than 50 minutes of never-before-seen lost footage. The Blu-ray arrives November 8th and features a transfer and color correction supervised by Lynch himself.
M&C was sent an exclusive clip to give fans a hint of what they can expect:
Beneath the surface of small-town serenity lies a dark domain where innocence dare not tread and unpredictability is the norm. It is the haunting realm of Blue Velvet. In this “shocking, deeply disturbing, startling mixture of the heartfelt and the horrific” (Newsweek), clean-cut Jeffrey Beaumont (Kyle MacLachlan, “Twin Peaks”) realizes his Mayberry-like hometown is not-so-normal when he discovers a human ear in a field.
His investigation catapults him into an alluring, erotic murder mystery involving a disturbed nightclub singer (Isabella Rossellini, Death Becomes Her) and a drug-addicted sadist (Dennis Hopper, Speed). Soon, Jeffrey is led deeper into their depraved existence past the point of no return.
Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Directing (Lynch) and a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role (Hopper), Blue Velvet features brilliant supporting performances from Laura Dern (Wild at Heart), Dean Stockwell (“Quantum Leap”), Hope Lange (Peyton Place) and David Lynch mainstay Jack Nance (Eraserhead).
Fans of Lynch’s filmmaking may also enjoy his solo debut as a musical artist, Crazy Clown Time, which is due out November 8 from Sunday Best Recordings / PIAS in America. Lynch produced and wrote the album’s 14 original songs, which spotlight him on guitar and vocals. Critics are already buzzing about the collection of dark and quirky pop, which is available on CD and LP as well as digitally.
