According to a new pre-order listing at Amazon.com, Disney and Buena Vista Home Entertainment are planning to release a director’s cut “election year edition” of Oliver Stone’s Nixon on Blu-ray Disc. The new director’s cut will include 28 additional minutes of previously unused footage.
Although Disney has yet to officially announce Nixon, the pre-order points towards an August 19 release. Pre-orders with release dates pan out to be correct more often than not, and we have good reason to believe this one is all but in the can.
If Disney holds true to past release patterns with big catalog reissues on Blu-ray, Nixon will be presented in a newly re-mastered widescreen 2.4:1 1080p video and 5.1 uncompressed 48kHz/24-bit audio.
Supplemental features will be passed along if/when Disney makes their official announcement.
Nixon Election Year Edition on Blu-ray carries an SRP of $34.99. Click through the disc details below to view probable cover art.
