Finally, after what seems like years of waiting, the much-anticipated director’s cut of Alex Proyas’ Dark City is finally coming to both DVD and Blu-ray. New Line Home Entertainment have announced the full specs for this new release of the 1998 film, which will also include the original theatrical version. Extras include:

  • 3 audio commentary tracks (with director Alex Proyas, Writers Lem Dobbs, and David S Goyer, Director of Photography Dariusz Wolski, Production Designer Patrick Tatopoulous, and film critic Roger Ebert)
  • Introduction by Alex Proyas
  • Featurette: Memories of Shell Beach (Making Of)
  • Featurette: Architecture of Dreams
  • Text Essays
  • Neil Gaiman’s Review of Dark City
  • Pop-Up Trivia Fact Track
  • Production Gallery
  • Trailers

According to the running time on the package, it looks like the director’s cut will be approximately 11 minutes longer. I can’t wait to get my hands on this… it seems like a good reason to finally buy a Blu-ray player too. Look for the Dark City Director’s Cut in stores on July 29th for a retail price of $19.97 ($34.99 for Blu-ray).



  • Definitely worth picking up. It will look awesome on Blu-Ray. Now I just have to get a player.

  • I can’t wait. I have a burned copy of the regular cut and am greatly anticipating finally owning this film for real, especially with all the great features it’s going to have.
