Fantasy Island came out to disappointing box office, though the usual Blumhouse low budget meant that it still made money, and I didn’t find it to be quite as bad as many said; the first third, at least, was pretty decent even it went on go down the proverbial toilet. Back in February, director Jeff Wadlow revealed the existence of an R-rated “slightly edgier cut” that would likely make its way to home video – as indeed it is.
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment announced the other day that, in North America, both the theatrical and unrated editions will be arriving on digital April 14th with a Blu-ray and DVD release set for May 12. Obviously this is just North America for the moment, but I think it’s highly likely that we’ll get this version in the UK as well.
Restoring a few seconds of blood doesn’t generally improve a film much, but as always I’m curious to see what was cut out…..
