Today’s the day, kids! The long awaited release of Mimic: The Director’s Cut (review here) is upon us, and to celebrate the flick’s arrival, we’ve nailed down an exclusive clip for you! Dig it!

From the Press Release:
Lionsgate is proud to announce major updates to the September 27th Blu-ray Disc release of Mimic, now to be released as Mimic: The Director’s Cut, including newly restored footage, a sound upgrade and the addition of another featurette to the list of never-before-seen special features from director/co-writer Guillermo Del Toro.

Audiences will experience High Definition thrills as Lionsgate debuts Guillermo Del Toro’s never-before-seen director’s cut of Mimic, available for the very first time anywhere, on 1080P High Definition Blu-ray Disc. This all-new cut of the film, featuring seven minutes of restored footage, introduces subtle character moments that transform Mimic into a film that Del Toro fans and newcomers alike will embrace as the definitive version. Containing new bonus materials created especially for this release, the disc includes audio commentary and a video prologue from Del Toro plus three featurettes — a look at the creatures from the film, a behind-the-scenes retrospective on the shooting of Mimic and Del Toro discussing his vision of the film and how he completed this version — as well as deleted scenes, a gag reel and storyboard animatics. Mimic: The Director’s Cut stars Academy Award® winner Mira Sorvino (Mighty Aphrodite) and Academy Award® nominee Josh Brolin (No Country for Old Men) along with Jeremy Northam (Showtime’s “The Tudors”).

Directed by Oscar® nominee Del Toro (Best Writing, Original Screenplay, Pan’s Labyrinth, 2006), the Miramax film Mimic: The Director’s Cut features a screenplay and screen story by Matthew Robbins and Guillermo Del Toro and is based on the short story by Donald A. Wollheim.

A disease carried by common cockroaches is killing children in Manhattan. In an effort to stop the epidemic, entomologist Susan Tyler (Sorvino) creates a mutant breed of insect that secretes a fluid to kill the roaches. This mutant breed was engineered to die after one generation, but three years later Susan finds out that the species has survived and evolved into a large, gruesome monster that can mimic human form.

    Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

    Published

    on

    One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

    Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

    Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

    Synopsis:
    Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
