The Warriors Director's Cut (R2) in October - Menus added

Paramount Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of The Warriors Ultimate Director's Cut for 17th October 2005 priced at £17.99. This classic cult movie caused controversy when it first came out in 1979. Its brutal depiction of street gangs had never been seen before on the big screen and the film was blamed for a series of incidents in cinemas where it was shown.

Now 26 years on, writer and director Walter Hill (“Deadwood”, 48 Hours) has helped put together THE WARRIORS DIRECTOR’S CUT SPECIAL EDITION which includes several deleted/extended/re-edited scenes along with director’s commentary and conversations with cast and crew about the making of the movie.
