I’m a big fan of Joe Dante’s Gremlins and Gremlins 2: The New Batch. The original may be more well known in popular culture than Gremlins 2 but, for me, I hold the second film in equally high regard. The sequel is chock full of zany b-movie greatness and makes fun of the original film while fully embracing it with great affection. Ever since Gremlins was released on blu-ray a few years ago, I’ve been patiently waiting for this release, in fact, I was actually thinking of revisiting this hilarious film really soon. With the blu-ray set to be released on May 8th of this year, I will wait just a few more months to watch it again but now in high definition! The transfer was supervised by Joe Dante himself so it is director approved! The blu-ray is available for pre-order on Amazon here.
Head over to Joe Dante’s website Trailers From Hell, where they announced the blu-ray (here), and watch what he’s been up to with his (and others’) trailer commentaries. They can be quite amusing as well as very interesting.
