With an all-new TV adaptation of Stephen King’s chunky best-seller, The Stand, on the way, the original 1994 mini-series makes a timely return on Blu-ray, newly restored from the original camera negative with enhanced special effects.
Foreshadowing current world events, King’s epic tale depicts the battle between good and evil in a post-apocalypse America, pitting a group of plague survivors in Colorado against the sinister Randall Flagg – aka the Dark Man – and his followers in Las Vegas. Featuring an all-star cast including Gary Sinise, Molly Ringwald, Rob Lowe and Kathy Bates, and a teleplay by King, this six-hour saga is an ambitious, faithful and compelling adaptation of one of the author’s best novels. Bonus features include an audio commentary by King and director Mick Garris, and a making-of featurette.
Release Date: August 12, 2020
Starring: Gary Sinise, Molly Ringwald, Rob Lowe
