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.
