Arrow Video Releasing Limited Edition 'Robocop' Blu-Ray in US and UK With Brand New Features

Arrow Video is set to bring fans a limited edition Blu-Ray release of Paul Verhoeven‘s Robocop in the US and UK on November 25th, 2019, with brand new bonus features. Cover artwork and special feature are listed below, including a pre-order link RIGHT HERE!

RoboCop, from Orion Pictures, marked director Paul Verhoeven’s (Flesh and Blood) Hollywood debut and instantly became an enduring sci-fi/action classic when it landed in theatres in the summer of 1987. Verhoeven’s peerlessly exciting and kinetic visuals were matched by a sharp script, iconic cast and exceptional special effects by Rob Bottin (The Thing) and Phil Tippett (The Empire Strikes Back).

Synopsis: “Heroic cop Alex Murphy (Peter Weller, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai) is gunned down in the line of duty, only to be resurrected as RoboCop a cybernetic mix of spare human parts and Motor City steel, and the latest defense against crime designed by the all-powerful OCP Corporation. As RoboCop s memories of his former life as Murphy resurface, only his ex-partner (Nancy Allen, Dressed To Kill) stands beside him to fight against the vicious thugs responsible for his death, as well as a nefarious top-level OCP executive orchestrating the chaos from above.

Unsurpassably thrilling, unexpectedly moving and unforgettably hilarious in equal measure, the future of law enforcement is back in a definitive Blu-Ray presentation packed with hours of brand new bonus features and exclusive collectable packaging.
