Disc News: Se7en Coming to Blu-ray

Warner Bros. never ceases to amaze me. While I do wish movies like Angus and Airborne got proper releases, instead of being available as part of the studio’s burn-on-demand service, at least the studio is willing to spend millions on restoring classics like North by Northwest, The Adventures of Robin Hood and The Wizard of Oz. Now, in celebration of the film’s 15th anniversary, David Fincher’s crime thriller Seven comes to Blu-ray in glorious HD.

This Blu-ray edition, supervised by director David Fincher, will come in DigiBook form, with a 32-page booklet containing information and photos on the making of the movie, and a special look at its alternate endings.

All special features will be carried over from the Platinum Series DVD release from December 2000.
