The Fly 2-Disc SE (R2) in July

Fox Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of The Fly (20th Anniversary Special Edition) for 3rd July 2006 priced at £17.99. This two-disc special edition was released back in May as part of The Fly Ultimate Collector's Edition and is now being made available separately as part of Fox’s Cinema Reserve line. Disc contents are identical (and detailed below) while the set is presented with the now familiar Cinema Reserve steel case packaging.

David Cronenberg’s acclaimed remake stars Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis. Fully restored to it’s gory glory, The Fly has been given the full Special Edition treatment on DVD to mark the film’s 20th Anniversary. The two disc set contains ear dropping, never-before-seen bonus material including an audio commentary by Cronenberg, a 3-part documentary ‘Fear of the Flesh’, featurettes, deleted scenes, branching clips, stills gallery and much more!

Scientist Dr Seth Brundle's (Goldblum) matter transportation project goes horribly wrong when he decides to use the ultimate guinea pig - HIMSELF! Unknown to Seth, he is not alone… A fly is caught in the pod when he tries his experiment and his human DNA is interwoven with that of the insect, insidiously transforming him into a super-agile, super-strong mutation. Seth's only true love, Veronica (Davis), watches helplessly as Seth mutates into a mere shadow of his former self, unable to control the urges and appetites that he now feels.
