Warner Home Video's 20th Anniversary Blu-ray Push For The Fugitive On Sept. 3

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Where does the time go?   It seems like only yesterday that Harrison Ford was on the run as Dr. Richard Kimble and Tommy Lee Jones was his relentless pursuer in director Andrew Davis’ film version of the long-running television series, The Fugitive. 

On Sept. 3, Warner Home Video will be release a 20th Anniversary Edition of this clever cat-and-mouse action film on Blu-ray.

Bonus goodies include an introduction by Harrison Ford and director Andrew Davis, a commentary option teaming Davis with Tommy Lee Jones, two vintage featurettes — “On the Run with the Fugitive” and “Derailed: Anatomy of a Train Wreck” — a newly-prepared featurette titled “The Fugitive: Thrill of the Chase,” and the television pilot for 2000 re-launch of the series (featuring Tim Daly as Kimble).

Also on the release calendar from Warner Home Video is a second four-film DVD collection of newly remastered Charlie Chan mysteries.   The street is Aug. 6 for Shadows over Chinatown (1946, with Sidney Toler as Charlie Chan), Docks of New Orleans, Shanghai Chest and The Golden Eye … all released theatrically in 1948 and starring Roland Winters as the legendary Honolulu detective.

And, speaking of mysteries, the latest Scooby-Doo/Shaggy feature-length animated adventure mystery, Scooby-Doo! Stage Fright, will be arriving on DVD and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Packs (with UltraViolet) on Aug. 20.
