We have two quick pieces of Blu-ray/DVD news for you this afternoon. First up, Blu-ray.com reports that the Blu-ray director’s cut of Guillermo del Toro’s Mimic will hit stores on September 27th. For those who never saw del Toro’s first English-language feature, the story is about genetically mutated giant cockroaches that can mimic human form. Mimic is del Toro’s weakest film, and he repeatedly clashes with the Weinsteins over the script and at least one scene was directed by producer Ole Bornedal. The new edition will feature 7 additional minutes of restored footage and bring the movie closer to del Toro’s original vision. The Blu-ray will also included a variety of special features that were missing from the original barebones 1998 DVD release.
Hit the jump for a list of special features for Mimic plus the first details for Marvel’s upcoming Blu-ray of Thor.
