Check out this new Escape From New York Blu-ray art!

We just had to take a second to share Scream Factory's artwork for their upcoming Collector's Edition Blu-ray of the 1981 John Carpenter classic, Escape From New York.

I don't know what it is about that art, but we are loving it to death.

From the Scream Factory Facebook page:


We have some “A-number one” updates to report today regarding our upcoming (and highly-anticipated) Collector’s Edition of John Carpenter’s legendary film ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK:

- Here’s an exclusive first look at the official newly-commissioned artwork which comes courtesy to us from artist Paul Shipper (Halloween: The Complete Collection). Snake is centrally focused of course, but we felt that it was important to showcase the incredible ensemble cast who are all vitally important to the film too. Purists can rejoice: The iconic original poster art with the beheaded Statue of Liberty will be on the reverse wrap and we wouldn’t dream of not including it! 

- Extras (new & existing) are still in progress and will be announced in full details sometime in Feb. This is a 2-disc blu-ray set and will exceed the previous DVD special edition. 

- Last and not least (and which will be good news to fans hoping this would happen): We have created a brand new 2K High Definition scan of the inter-positive, struck from the original negative. 

- This is a Region A release. Street date is 4/21.

Sounds pretty damned great to us!
