Remember that cruel April Fool’s Day joke from last April? You know, the one about a director’s cut of Mimic coming to DVD? Bingo. I’ll never forget the confusion shown by Andrew Kasch when it seemed to be a prank, as he said he watched as people worked on it. Relax Andrew … your sanity is saved. It’s coming all right, along with Cronos, courtesy of Criterion.
Guillermo del Toro himself stopped by the Del Toro Films message board to deliver this update for anxious fans:
“CRONOS is evolving nicely. We are including a NEVER-SEEN-BEFORE version of GEOMETRIA (1987) the short that I made for 1 thousand bucks and that I was never able to finish the way I wanted it. NOW I re-finsihed it for this disc (dont worry, no CGI or fancy stuff) and I like it- I never did before- but now I do.
CRONOS has never looked so beautiful and we found dozens of photographs of the making of the device, etc
MIMIC is looking fabulous. Some of the negative had been lost but we found alternatives and are finishing the Director’s Cut. VERY HAPPY!!”
