Erik the Viking 2-Disc SE in October
Arrow Films have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Erik the Viking (The Director’s Son’s Cut) for 9th October 2006 priced at £15.99.
"When the film came out in 1989 I was not happy at all with it. With the Monty Python movies I'd been a hands on editor, yet with Erik the Viking I didn't get involved in the process until too late. I've always felt there was a better film in there, waiting to get out, and this new version is it!"
Working with his son, Bill, the film has been drastically changed for the better – with a complete change of scene order, brand new 5.1 audio and an enhanced picture transfer, this Director's Son's Cut is the film finally the way Terry wanted it!
Features on this two-disc set include:
- Brand new Terry Jones commentary
- Interview with Terry and Bill Jones
- The Making of Erik the Viking
- Feature reports
- Extended Cast Interviews
- Photo Gallery
- Plus includes the original UK theatrical cut
