PA Classic THE DAY AFTER Hits Blu-ray in August

By Christopher Webster [05.31.18]

Good morning, PA fans. Details have finally come in for Kino's blu-ray release of the classic post-apocalyptic television special The Day After. Next to Threads and Survivors, this is one of the more harrowing, realistic looks at nuclear annihilation.

The Blu-ray will be relesaed August 7th on DVD and Blu-ray in brand new HD Masters.

The Day After (2-Disc Special Edition) will have optional English subtitles and include the following features"

• Includes both Original 122-Minute TV Cut (1.33:1) and the 127-Minute Theatrical Cut (1.78:1)
• Interview with star JoBeth Williams
• Interview with director Nicholas Meyer
• Audio Commentary by Film Historian Lee Gambin and Comic Artist/Writer Tristan Jones
• Reversible Blu-ray Art

I definitely consider this a must-own release for PA collectors.

Recommended Release: Survivors (The Complete Series)

    Survivors is about a pandemic aftermath, not a nuclear war. Maybe you were thinking of Testament?

    Lumped it in as another realistic look at a post apocalyptic scenerio from the same era, but you're right that's confusing. Testament is also a great example from the era.
