It was an unlikely sci-fi winner … that would be director Paul Verhoeven’s 1997 film adaptation of Robert A. Heinlein's 1959 serialized novel, Starship Troopers. So much of the early narrative was almost nonsensical, but once the action kicked in, Starship Troopers was a non-stop adrenaline rush. Genre fans celebrated it … and learning things too: “The only good bug, is a dead bug!”
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment announced this past week that a 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray Combo Pack 25th Anniversary Edition will be available for all to enjoy on Nov. 1.
New bonus features include the “Starship Troopers 25th Anniversary Reunion,” which features scriptwriter Ed Neumeier and cast members Casper Van Dien, Denise Richards, Dina Meyer, Clancy Brown, Michael Ironside, Jake Busey, Patrick Muldoon and Seth Gilliam. There are also vintage commentary options, the documentary titled Death from Above, deleted scenes and featurettes.
